Today has been spent staring at the computer trying to decipher bead numbers and colors. I have placed 4 different orders in hopes of having all of the right stuff to assemble kits next week. I like assembling kits, but ordering all the bits is tedious. And it’s so hard to judge color through screens and catalog pages. I just cross my fingers and hope they all go together when they arrive.
In the mean time, I have been a beaded bead making fool. 18 beaded beads in 3 days is pretty good all things considered. I am absolutely loving these little guys. I threw a few extra superduos on one of my bead orders for experimental purposes. Here’s the top down version of the first set of beads made. And here is the side view.
I made some small twin bead beaded beads to accompany these beads. Then I made a set in raspberry and gold. I think I might like these even better.
I am toying with how I plan to string these. I think they will be necklaces. The first set has been threaded onto a lovely teal silk cord. I am thinking it needs some chain too. I’ll keep you posted on how it turns out. I need to make another set, I’m not sure what color combo to play with next. I think these beads would be cool stacked up in a pendant too. So many ideas, so little time…
