    This set is exquisite! The addition of the little Garnets is wonderful. How in the world do you get those strands to fit inside the cones? Did it take a a long time to master that? Your findings are always give the pieces such a nice finish.

    Ah! The sead beads look like little clusters of flowers. The garnet is a great contrast to pull the depth out of the sead beads. :) Love it.

    Thank you, chickies! :)

    Nancy, you tie, you put a head pin through, cut the threads above the tie and drop some super glue on it … then you put the cone on so that the head pin goes through the hole in it and you make the loop. If your cone does not have the hole but has the loop over solid , you do not use a head pin of cause , but only glue.
