Hey Karin! Haven't seen lentils from you before - I like them!!! VERY much! :clap: :clap:

beadreamer - your teddy bear is cute, but those monkeys are just TOO adorable!

Loretta - I have the same question as Mc .... errrr ... Mary - did you cap it yourself? Beautiful bead!

Oh if you only new how easy the sliver caps on the lentils were.,.you wouldnt be half as impressed. LOL :p

All you need is a couple of those plain shallow beadcaps ..the ones i have are 10mm but i think the 8mm might work even better ..and you gently curve them over something cylindrical..(a fat mandrel..a metal pen..i used an icecrem scopp handle) you just keep curving till you have the right curve to fit the lentil..and VOILA..all done :) then you just string it or wire it up as you would with normal bead caps. They really look like part of the bead when your all done..I love it..was kinda bored with just silver balls at the end of the lentils.
Hope that all made sense :)

Ok, now the ultimate question, I have been looking for those bead caps and can't find them. Where oh where did you get them??? I Love the look and that lentil Barleyesque bead looks fabulous!

I sell some from my site...but the shipping from australia might not make it a very viable option for you. I think gemshow-online had some..as did sweetcreek.com (they were sold out last week but she told me they would be getting more soon) If you cant find them anywhere else Id be happy to sell you some as long as your ok with the shipping. :)
