    Thanks everyone! Sometimes those pesky little beads do seem to have a mind of their own! :-)

    Peggy, The black beads are the little tiny Czech leaves. They’re probably supposed to be used as dangles, but I liked the way they stuck out when strung. Of course, I got all the way done and noticed I had one going the wrong way and had to redo. :-/
