Jessica thankyou very much for the information. I was so stunned when they changed colour I jusr wasn't anticipating it at all.
I got them from a bead show that passed through a few months back so chances of me being able to get more are none and buckleys as I can't find the ticket that came with them
I did use a jig, it was actually my first attempt using a jig and I am very happy with the results, I have just completed another wrework bead and will put it up soon using the jig.
My jig is small and cheap I nearly fell over when I read that a jig can cost about $80. I plan to do more with wire work as I really love the effect.
These beads sound fabulous, but... wouldn't it be hard to color-coordinate?
I have to admit I never colour coordinate anyway so it wouldn't worry me anyway
