I went to Delft (Netherlands) today. The town is famous for its ceramics (Delft Blue, cobalt blue on white), and before my trip there I did some research and found out they also make ceramic beads. The local bead shop had a lot of them. I tried very hard to ignore those that had windmills, tiny human figures and “I <3 Holland” painted on them, and looked for more abstract designs. I bought an even amount of each, thinking they might be good for earrings.
