Okay, this is the first time for me to post a pic, so hopfully it's gonna work!

These are my very first beads that I made in class in April. The points on them are so sharp I think I could scratch someone to death! Well, maybe not THAT sharp!:D

And here is what I did two weeks ago. I used pastel Lt. Lapis #240, pastel Pea Green #212, and my absolute favorite -Coral #420. I'm so in love with this color combo! Especially Coral, I need to buy a truck load of it!

Wow Misty, those are great! I can see the improvement...not that the beginner ones are the worse I've seen. I love that color combo too!

You know your first beads are really good. Excellent stringer control for the first day! Your recent beads are great.

07-11-2002, 10:36 PM
Yes...they are outstanding for first beads, I'm sure you have seen mine. I thought the red stringer at the top stood out too, seems advanced for the first time.

Sweet beads! Your firsties are VERY good - not a surprise your latest are so nice. They're so summery. :) :) :)

Wow, Misty! Even though your beginner beads are actually quite good, you have really improved a lot. So, I'm guessing you're pretty happy with the colors I chose for the project...don't worry, there is no deadline on these projects. You have time to order more coral. I had a coral phase like that, too. I ran out, ordered from Frantz, but couldn't wait for the shipment so I had to drive to Omaha to buy a few rods to hold me over...(can you believe it? you can't buy glass rods in Lincoln, NE. It's the state capitol for pete's sake.) B2

Wow....my beads are just now looking that good and I've been doing this for 18 mos +.

We've got to get together....I'll show you mine if you show me more of yours!?

Beautiful beads and color combos.

Hey Misty, your beginners beads are much better than mine were, and you've improved a lot.
