    I’m going to keep showing these to my hubby, too. He is intrigued that Garry started making these! :) I think Garry’s color sense is pretty darn good for a guy. ;) Now YOU get to tell HIM “you can do so much more that string beads.” :) !!!

    I would never have thought these were someone’s first projects at all! Classic designs that will work so well with a simple tee.

    Great pieces Gary. I always have difficulty with square beads, let alone cubed beads and you put them together brilliantly. Nice combination of colors too.

Add your thoughts!
