About this design:

I had some of these beads for awhile and always liked them; just never got around to doing anything with them. So today I decided to make some PC beads to go with them and this is the result.


My handmade PC beads, ceramic beads and a mix of glass pearls, acrylic and metal beads, also Irish waxed linen from LB and antique gold large jumprings and lobsterclaw clasp.

    Wow! What a wonderful mix! Are those little wire balls in the middle? Weren’t you giving yourself a digital camera for Christmas? You’re giving me eye stain trying to make out all your wonderful PC beads! :-)

    GAIL…sorry about the picture quality. Yes, I thought I would be able to get an inexpensive digital camera at Christmas, but with property taxes due, medical expense as well as home insurance, there just wasn’t any left. Seems there is always a greater need than a camera. Sorry, but my scanner will just have to do. If you have eye strain from looking, I apologize. Maybe I shouldn’t submit any pics till I can afford a proper camera.
