Another wet felted bead experiment - working to put this together as a class. I did a lot of prototype experimentation a while back (some of those experiments were posted here on the forums). Still a bunch of work to be done, but I like this necklace!

Still wish I had access to a lot more interesting beads - there's only Michael's and JoAnn's around here for beads. Selection is okay, but not great. I've bought some beads online, but sometimes it is hard to tell what a bead will really be like until you see it in person.

This is super cool. Each bead is so perfectly shaped, and I love the random red.

Thank you!!!  Cheesy Cheesy =^..^=

I always have trouble deciding what colors to use - I need to use colors that appeal to me, but will also appeal to others and then I always have to consider what colors and quantities I have on hand.

Used some of my ostrich heishi beads in this necklace. They come from a strand I bought probably back in the '70s. They weren't expensive back then. I still have quite a few, but one of these days I suppose I will have to look into finding some more.
