Jewelry making #15

Ah....

I'm using 1.0 mm Stretch Magic now on some pieces...and I am now, after what, two months? starting to produce finished pieces.

The 1.0 mm SM is quite a bit thicker than the 0.7 mm one. It can still string size 10/0 seed beads though.

1.0 also holds knots much better. It's less stretchy too, so it's tricky getting the piece loose enough (the right "drape").

I have three pieces done now...one uses "cane beads" combined with the purple and gold beads mentioned earlier, one is an old design...mostly clear glass "e beads" (I'm finally getting the terms right!), and one is brand new, it's different shades of blue and blue-grey.
