I have a bead (and wire) fetish

I'm so excited! I found an awesome place online that sells recycled solid sterling silver wire! Not only is it recycled but it is made in the U.S.A. and they buy back scraps! Heck Yeah! That made me one happy camper. They also sell gold filled and solid gold wire, but for now silver is the next step up in investment for me.  I took the plunge. 50 feet of chain, 100 marked silver clasps, jump rings, 30 feet 26g wire, and 5 feet 16g. ^_^
So now that I have all of this awesome sterling silver, I need to figure out what types of trees I am going to make with it all.... That is the fun part....The beads! I have a slight bead fetish. Every time I get an idea, I buy beads. Every time I am near a craft store, I buy beads. Every time I am online, I always start to browse, and do what? Buy beads...Dear lord, I am a true bead-a-holic... roughly 13,000 beads here... hehe ^_^;;
Hey, it could be worse! I have been trying to control the urge and use up a bit of my stock recently...but now that I have all this new wire, who knows how long I'll hold out. Anyone got the number for Bead-a-holics Anonymous?
