My mom had a wonderful collection of Pop Beads, along with some beautiful blue glass beads, and some other costume jewelry. One day while laying on my bead and looking up at the ceiling I got the idea to put the beads in the square clip on bulb glass shade. My they did look lovely with all the different color's shining down. Then the Pop Beads melted into/onto the glass beads and shade. Ended up with a stinky melted glob of my mom's jewelry and I was grounded for long time. Not because I did it, but I touched someone else s property and ruined it. We had a rule that I broke...if it's not yours, don;t touch it. It was effectively the end if my "I wonder what" days. I was eight. I'm 65 now.
