    The peanuts look great, Wanda ! This is a different technique than your “beaded bead”, but I like how this intertwines, too. And by the way, the order that I received from LB yesterday included some Griffin thread, so next time I get out my beads, I’m planning to try your technique with seed beads – - -

    This is a really novel design Wanda! I love the jasper and the pyrite coins. The peanut seedbeads really set it all off..great job!

    Love, Love, Love this!! Annnnd I gotta ask…. I’ve stared at it for at least ten minutes and I can’t figure out how it’s done! Are the larger beads on a separate strand and the peanuts wound around them or are they stung together? The curiosity is killing meeeee!!

    Thanks Wanda! I like this so much that I may have to try something with those little tiny beads that always want to jump out of my hands :-)

    It’s a braid through the beads isn’t it? Fabulous design, Wanda! I have tried this a few times but never had such good results! Love it!

    I braided them through the spacer beads Becky.

    I wore it out yesterday and got lots of compliments on it. Then my friend came over and I gave it to her, cause she liked it.

    Awwwww! :) You are such a good friend! I thought it looked like the braids were through the spacers. :) Gotta try it again!

    Wanda..what a unique and beatuiful piece. Your friend is a lucky duck. It is fun to gift your creations to good friends sometimes. It’s fun to know that they can share the creative energy tht flows from you. I love seeing my friends wear my stuff. It means a lot to me.

    Beadzilla aka Wanda says:

    Thank you all so much for your kind words!

    It took me three tries Becky, to finally get it to sit properly.

    Yes Nancy it is a wonderful feeling seeing my stuff on my friends and family. My friend asked if she could try it on, because she didn’t think it would fit her. So when it fit and I said she could have it, that smile lit across her face. What a wonderful feeling it was. :)
