    Very pretty wood tones.
    Do you like using tiger tail? I rarely use it, due to past problems with kinks in the tiger tail, if I was not very careful. ;)

    @Harriet : As I knew nothing about beading, I bought whatever I thought I would need for beading and tiger tail was one of the stuff….now I also use 24 gauge wire…please let me know what else I can use and of what gauge…Thanks
    @Sali Jo: Thanks for liking my work…

    Do you string on wire or on the nylon coated multi-strand beading wire (like Beadalon or Softflex)? The answer depends on what you are using. ;)

    My favorite beading wire is the 49 strand, diameter .018 from Beadalon. I also use Soft Flex in similar size.

    I need .015 or smaller diameter when working with fresh water pearls or other beads with small holes. I generally prefer crimp beads rather than crimp tubes…just my preference. :-)

    Time for you to fill out a profile and join up girl… ;)

    Then we can send you info on your wire or in messages, as soon as we “friend” each other. :D

    Thanks so much for sharing the valuable info…I am using Beadalon’s 7 strand beading wire with .45 diameter now. I used crimp tubes earlier as they came in the starter pack but now I have bought crimp beads. I also have Stretch Magic cord for bracelets.

    ohh and one more thing…I use the 24 gauge wire for making individual looped beads and then attach them to each other. I have yet to try making wrapped loops.

    Super design, Sonal! I love that focal bead, and the other wood beads are great with it. :D I have quite a few wood beads in my stash right now, just waiting for the right design inspiration! ;)
