I remember the first time I saw a Trollbead, it was at the Grasshopper shop and it was lovely…the price, however, was not. I have a new-found respect for these stunning beads since I started lampworking glass last month, by golly making an even round bead is hard! It is also hard to make 2 beads exactly the same size for earrings, here was my first attempt at both a Pandora type bead and identical earring beads:
What do you think? I did not have proper bead cores so I used scrapbooking and sewing eyelets, looks pretty good I think:)
I wore the necklace a couple of times but it is too symmetrical ..or something, it just ain’t right. I will be pulling it apart and trying again, maybe it’s the ribbon, I’m not sure…it just is not working for me, any ideas?
Well, I best boogie, I volunteered to decorate for the Cub Scouts Blue and Gold banquet tonight and then I am taking one of my best friends out for lunch for her birthday and I still need to slap on some war paint before I leave 😛 Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
