I used the size 8 clear beads for the edge to mimic the heavy clear glass of the furnace beads. Speaking of the furnace beads......
Look at how substantial they are -
The earthtones mix I chose came with different sizes and shapes and colors in greens, browns and tan. Some were even striped. I love the rich brown color. I wound up using some of the mixed stone strand I bought awhile ago (from Artbeads too) to bring in the color of the rock.
I'm really pleased with the results. I don't make a lot of necklaces, and I really don't feel like I know what I'm doing, so to have something come together without a real plan, well, that just makes my day.Toho Ring Kits I bought awhile ago these same colors?
Now on to the dreaded sewing of my Tuscarora Class Project. . . . . .
I found out the stuffing is called "Warm and Natural". First I had to cut it into strips. Yeah, lots of fun! Not.
Bead Happy and Often!
FTC Disclosure: I received the furnace glass beads free of charge from Artbeads in exchange for my honest opinion and review of the product.
