1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Re: Lazy Super-Duo bracelet on: July 10, 2014 09:31:21 PM
Thank you all

I first saw these beads on Pinterest too, and decided that I must have them Smiley

These are Czech beads, and various online and brick and mortar stores carry them. They should be listed under Czech, either as beads or seed beads, depending on the classification the store uses. Beadaholique has rather nice selection.

There are two types of those - SuperDuo and Twin. Superduo are uniform and make a nice scaly texture, while Twin is less uniform and meshes better with seed beads.

brick and mortar stores, eh?  I have a few I can stop by this weekend and see if they carry them.  it looks like Fire Mountain Gems & Beads carries the Twin, so that's good to know.  but I see a lot of the bead stores online that I've been looking at carry the Duos.  just what I need; MORE BEADS!!!  Cheesy

hi all, still alive.  Smiley

my research project is killing me.  I'm not even half done with it (told you it would take more than 3 weeks).  I work on it every day though, so it's not like I don't have anything done.  a friend wants to see the WIP, so I'll probably pop the picture up on here too.

so yeah...I'm still alive.  heh.

I've just been working SO hard on my cross stitch project that I haven't really done anything else except some school work and pin like crazy on Pinterest.  and next Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, I get a good portion of my days taken away from me due to recovery from surgery.  but if it's like others have told me (and my doctor), it won't be so bad.  I may still be able to work on my cross stitch since it's not another shoulder surgery.  Tongue

not only am I obsessed with this project, we're also in the process of getting ready to move so a lot of my stuff is packed away.  I have felt and beads I can play with, but none of the stuff I want to work on from my list is accessible.  so, it's just me and my cross stitch.

I've been seeing a LOT of tutorials and stuff on Pinterest lately using these beads.  I need to know where I can find them!!!

you're just starting?!  I don't believe you!  Cheesy

seriously, these are all amazing (except the spider.  I can't bring myself to look at it.  I hate spiders that much).

I wish I would have thought of that before I threw it away.  the corner where I started could have made a neat abstract patch, but it's gone now, so it's not happening.  that's part of my problem; I have anger issues, so I sometimes act irrationally.  I used to be able to draw.  it was nothing fantastic, and people were in no way on my list of things I could draw, but at least I could draw animals.  years later, I tried to draw again, and nothing went right.  so I ripped the page out of my book, crumpled it up, and threw it across the room.  it's worse now; if the first line doesn't look right it gets thrown across the room.  and because of this, I don't draw anymore, unless it's just some sketch thingy that doesn't need to look good.  I just need to know a rough idea of what something should look like so I can use stuff to bring it to life.  a good example is a shadowbox I want to make.  all I had to do was get a layout of what I wanted to do so that when I go to make it, I know what should go where.  basically I use it as a way to remember how I want to make something without having to actually remember (since I am so forgetful).  my drawing is not meant for people to see, so this mess I made on paper will be tossed once I make the shadowbox.  if things don't go well with this project, I'll be tempted to do the same.  but I will try my hardest to not throw it away and see if I can make it into something else.

thanks.  I'll need it.

and you know, I might have been able to turn the corner into some kind of abstract patch.  but I literally pitched it.  I was so upset, I just took it right to the trash can.  Undecided

I had to trash my original research project.  Cry  Cry  Cry  Cry  Cry  Cry  Cry  Cry  Cry

but, I came up with another one that I've posted in the summer battle.  it's about the same size, but it's only 7 colors rather than 18.  so hopefully I can't screw it up like the last one...

well, when you get your partner you can let them know I'm sure.  I did that all the time when I swapped.  "shoot!  I forgot to list that!" and then tell my partner "I was too excited and I forgot this".  Cheesy

but thank you for the compliment!  I've recently pinned some new thimbles on Pinterest that I want to try out.

Research Project Name: Marilyn Manson cross stitch
Team: Multimedia
Brief Description: this project may just take me 3 months.  it's being done on 28 count Monaco Evenweave fabric with 18 colors of floss.  this will be the biggest, most detailed cross stitch project I have done so far.  I made the pattern with a free converter from a picture I found on the net that I LOVE.  my original project got SEVERELY messed up, so I had to scrap it.  Cry  so I'm replacing it with this one.
