Description from J Yee smart chick: My friend came over to my place last weekend, and she enjoyed seeing all the natural gemstone beads that I have accumulated thru years of beading. She picked out a lovely cream colored turtle bead as her focal, and then chose some copper and amber beads from a Toho mix named Kohaku, some crazy lace and yellow moss agate rounds, and some fire polished beads - all the while telling me, "I have not a creative bone in my body!", yet she has an excellent sense of color already.
It was so much fun to work with her as she practiced beading for the first time, and was enjoying seeing all the beads I have - she told me she likes her necklaces to be ones that are simple, with the same spacing and kinds of beads between the bigger ones, in contrast to me - I like to be more random in my choices of the smaller beads between the larger ones, as long as the overall color palette is what I want it to be.
I assured her as we went along, to trust her sense of what she enjoys, because what she is making is evolving beautifully - she is not done with the necklace yet, but I am looking forward to the next time she comes over to finish up her necklace!
