Impressive. This requires remarkable patience

Love the colours here - reserved but somewhat quirky.

Ah, I feel the same way about sushi. Which is funny, because I hate all other kinds of fish with a passion, but sushi is what gets me through a difficult work day Smiley

Very nice bracelet. I love how you pick the themes for them

Hmm, you might try making a charm bracelet on a chain. In this case, you won't have to detach the  clasp - you could simply attach the charms to the chain with a jump ring.

As for cord that can be tied and untied, waxed cord is flexible and can stand a lot of abuse.

That might come in handy Smiley

Thank you

Do they really have an active community there? I just had some rather negative experiences with paid forums, so I'd prefer in advance.

Heh, first I tried to sort my beads by colour and stuff them into boxes, and made a sample reference sheet with the kinds I had available. Then I decided that sorting them by shape and size would make much more sense, since complex patterns rely much more on shape than on colour. One can easily make generally the same thing in different colour, but doing it with different size is much more complicated. Then I figured out that I still can't find my stuff, as of course I have forgotten which of them went to which box Smiley
17  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Your favourite type of beads on: July 04, 2014 11:28:30 PM
Greetings

Just wondered what is the favourite type of material for people here to work with. The kind you tend to get exited about and try to include in your projects at every opportunity?

I know people who are crazy about everything made with real semiprecious stones, and have a veritable treasure hoard of them. Some are exited about Delicas, and I can hardly blame them.

Personally, I fell in love with two-hole beads, especially SuperDuos and Czech Tile. They seem tailor-made for a lazy beader who likes "polished" look like myself. Extremely uniform with very few imperfections, give interesting texture with minimum of work, and you can make a huge bracelet quickly.

So, what are your favourites?

I do hope to post some projects once I reach the required message count Smiley

Speaking of which, there don't seem to be any general posting - semi-off-topic area around, and I was wondering if I am missing something.

Agreed, trying to organize the stash is fun. And of course halfway through it I decided that I used a completely wrong way to classify what I have

Greetings

New here, and still trying to find my way around the forum.

Shy Russian girl, mostly into beadwork and simple macrame like wrap bracelets. My dreams so far are to organise my bead stash so that I'd have any idea about what kind of beads I have at hand (short-term), to learn some wirewrapping techniques in order to make my own findings (long-term) and to become good enough to quit my day job (very long term and might never happen, but a girl can dream, right?)
