This is a set I made last night. By the time I got around to taking photos, the light had pretty much gone. These beads are really small (for me!). The largest is about the size of a garbanzo bean. They were a lot of fun! Had some trouble with the photos, so the 1st photo is 1/2 of the set, the 2nd photo is the other half of the set.

Great beads, ummm but what's a garbanzo bean?

I think it's the same as a chic pea which is, I think, what hummus is made from.

...which now when I think about it is really small - just like the beads :)

I wish I could take credit for all of the glass, but you have friends on WC! you have never met! I am sworn to secrecy, but you are well loved.

It was great to meet you today and get a chance to see your wonderful beads! They are amazing and absolutely stunning! Thank you so much for the beautiful star! I will treasure it. I know every time I look at it, I will think of how surprised you were and will be reminded of the kindness of others. Sometimes tears are a very good thing! This is an amazing community. :D

Kimberly, those beads are awesome! As soon as I saw them I was reminded of the miniature native american pottery. My DHTB's godmother and her husband collect the miniature native american pottery. I got to see their collection a couple times and the dots and the colors.....beautiful! I bet those would be stunning in a finished piece with a nice turquoise focal (same SW theme).
