    I would love to have this goody bag to make some summer inspire jewelry.

  1. I think I would like to have some magnetic Hematite beads, even if I couldn’t make anything, it might help with the arthritis!

    Your heavy duty pliers would be all i’d need to transform native flora, rocks into beautiful things to make be me happy.

    If I were stranded on a deserted island I would really want the Zamba Pro Four-In-One Multi-Task Tool. I would need it for all my island chores. I could flatten the edges of any can that came my way, straighten any stray bits of wire that happen to wash up on the beach. This tool is made of stainless steel so it could be used to make a spark for fire and it would also be very useful in cutting materials to help me survive. This handy tool could help me pull threads from palm fronds to use for all sorts of camp projects. It is very compact and easy to transport should I need to move to higher ground. It can also be used as a weapon should the need arise. It really would be a helpful tool.

    I would like a large Swarovski starfish. I could make a necklace out of dried palm leaves made into string. I would use the mirror effect of the crystal to signal boats or planes to rescue me and get me safely home to my puppy and family. Thanks so much for asking.

    If I were stranded on a Deserted Island I would hope to have fireline, a supply of seed beads & Swarovski round crystals. I would use the Fireline to create a fishing pole to catch some fish for meals & also use it to build a tent & to do some beading while I’m waiting to be rescued.
    An Artbeads catalog to go thru to pass the time away.

    If I had to choose one thing to bring on a desert island, I would have to say a tropical assortment of fire designs glass beads

    The one thing i would have to have if i was stranded on a deserted island a bead reamer… I could make string from the leafs, but i would need something to help me drill holes in the pearls i collect( i would search for oysters) the sea shells, small rocks, etc. That way i can keep myself busy, till i am rescued, and when i am rescued i can sell my projects.

  2. if i was stranded on an island i would want to have with me my savorkian crystals this way if a passing ship would go by they would see the glimmer from them and they would come and see what the glimmer was and would find me.

  3. if i was deserted on an island i would love to have my savorkin crystals with me because when the sun is out they would glimmer and if a ship was passing by they would see the glimmer and save me from the island

    If I was stranded on the tropical deserted island, I would want to have Swarovski Crystals. If help were near they could see the reflection to rescue me. And also I could use them for carving stuff into wood to get help, or cut things to eat!! But above all, it would be great to do beading with them!!

    The 1 most important item for me would be Beadalon 49 Strand Wire. I would already have a knife to cut the wire. It would be essential for tying fronds together to build shelter, building a wire snare for tripping up wild game, and lashing together palm trunks to make a raft and bring back the found items, strung and tied, ready to finish upon my return to civilization…

  4. So Hard to pick one. But I think it would be the Chain Sta, so I could use it to make bracelets and necklaces from the shells I find on the beach and twine that I could make from the plants.

    If I could only have one thing, I would honestly have to have the whole store! I would need something to do until somebody found me!

  5. A ton of sterling silver wire, tools and loads of sparkling crystals!

  6. I would take my seed beads and Fireline so I could do all the projects I don’t have time for now!!

    i would def have to have the catalog. to plan what i would make when i got back! ideas and imagination would keep me going so i wouldn’t go mad!!!!

    The Stretch Magic Elastic. If I found any shells with holes on them, I would string them on and make some pretty cool necklaces and bracelets.

  7. I would absolutely have everything I need to feel pretty after making a gorgeous bracelet with the Swarovski Double Cherry Blossom kit and it looks so great with my Island Tan! Love it!

  8. As long as I had a good supply of Nymo, I would be a crafty girl.

    Swarovski crystal!!

    I would get a big bag of the biggest silver lined Swarovski crystals and inlay them onto wood. Then I would use that gorgeous mirror to flash bright sunlight rescue signals to nearby islands, ships or aircraft.

    Definitely, Fireline for me too!

    • Deborah Klinkner

    I would take the beading book Mastering beadwork: guide to off loom Techniques so that I could read, learn new techniques, & put together designs to do on returning home. I love to have the time to just sit & put design ideas together, something I don’t get to do much with a very busy life.

    I think I’d take your Swarovski 1122 18mm Rivoli Crystal because I’m pretty sure I can start a fire with it (like you would with a magnifying glass). Fire equals warmth, clean water, and protection from animals. Plus it could double as a way to signal planes/boats. AND I’d look fabulous with it, strung onto a woven grass necklace, for the photos of my rescue!

    • Denise Feliciano

    water, food and shelter but my cafting choice would be a thread needles and a pound of beads lol.

    • Mary Kearney

    I would want the galvanized silver delicas to weave an SOS with coconut’s fiberous outer layer so I could signal a plane for rescue.

    I would bring an Artbeads baseball cap with their official logo on the front. Deserted Islands are beachy and have a hot climate, which can cause heat stroke and third degree sunburns! So what better why to protect yourself then with a baseball cap!
