    I think you are very brave to work with seed beads, period! LOL Too small on the ol’ eyes!
    Theser are really cool though especially since you can wear them several different ways.

    I love these. What a great idea and I am sure they sell quick. We can’t use these at work but I may try some for my next show. How long do you make them? I also saw somebody make these and use them to hold their eye glasses when they are not wearing them. And I agree seed beads tend to be a pain.

    I LOVE these!!! All of them, all of them FAVES! I also absolutely love working with seed beads, yah, they can get frustrating sometimes, but the end result is usually well worth it ;) which is blatantly obvious with these 3 beauties!

    Great necklaces. You can cheat a bit and use a bead spinner! I think everyone loves seed beads because they are so fluid and sensual. These definitely are!

    I really like all of the lariats. You’re right ~ they are painstaking, but I feel the effort is worth it. As you indicated, they are very versatile.
