111  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Re: Aw yeah... Beadorific! on: September 20, 2006 06:30:31 AM
wow!  thanks for all the compliments!! 
in response to making the ends, that's the most time-consuming part.  i found some bead caps at a bead store and figured they'd be nice to hide all the strings.  first, make sure that all the strings are several inches longer than the beaded section on both ends.  insert the strings through the cap, tie one or two overhand knots, and trim the excess strings.  then use a crimp ending that is often used for leather to attach the clasp.  finally, put a drop of superglue on the crimp and knots for extra security.  the superglue can dry a bit rough, so you can use a fingernail file to smooth it out. 
i hope that makes sense!  Smiley
thanks again!

I love multi-strand seed bead bracelets!  At first, I thought I'd break down and buy one, but then (after checking my bank account) I decided to come up with one of my own.  There are transparent, opaque, matte, and glossy beads that all catch and manipulate the light in a cool way.  What do you think?

I found these rectangles as part of a necklace.  I thought they'd look better as chandelier-like earrings.  Altho being a bit on the heavier side, I still dig 'em.  Any compliments would be appreciated!   Wink

I adore these little guys!!  Here's my attempt, altho he looks a bit like a bunny / manatee combo.  Not too sure on how to make the back legs more bunny-like.  I call him Mint Julep due to his vintage mint green print.  Smiley
