    So these are the beads you send out into the cold, dark wilderness? I have to agree that some of these could be really difficult to work with. ;)

    Just wanted to add. I’m weird I know but the spark plugs look like little mummies to me. And why make a spark plug bead?!?!??? I get the whole steam punk thing…and that’s not it.

    I can see why you would not gets along with some of these. They are rather strange. :) But what’s wrong with the cherry quartz tubes?

    Do you want my thoughts about the diff. beads n stuff? Well you get them anyway ;)
    Start the Cherry Quartz; I was thinking: which of the gems I avoid = cherry quartz (for free ok it might slip down in my bag). But firstly it’s manmade, there are so many natural quarts that are far more beautiful… Second the color is not my fave ;)
    2, chzech angelwings. Boring, just shiny but could still work…
    3, Those plugs givs me associations to hrmmm hmmmhmmm yes you don’t wanna know, might not wanna have them around my neck anyway…
    4, hearts, I seldom use. Sorry if being boring but think they r a bit overrepresentated in art. However some heartforms have sneaked into my jewelry designs and eaven paintings. These hearts represented in this pick is the one I like the least…
    5, frankenstein, just ugly :P
    6, Staring eys…
    7, Robin Head – makes me think of hunting and hunting trophies.
    8, Red Bulb, just kind of boring, could work…
    9, lillypilly disk-to simple.
    10, Lucite material problem and in this case the color is not to exciting.
    11, glitter – the color is not my first choice!

    I’ve used the spark plug in a steampunk design for a friend that really liked industrial design. It might work, outside of steampunk, as part of a man’s necklace … it’s certainly NOT girly looking.

    I agree about the Cherry Quartz and hearts, and the glitter color … yikes!

    I can imagine the Robin head tied to the end of a lariat-style necklace hanging over a nest bead/charm in a very woodsy piece.

    Frida says:

    CAS i love your design ;) Is just the associations the plug gives me. I see that they can be potential. Just my naughty mind hope you don’t mind that hahaha :P
