Blast and Damn

I forgot to take pictures of Kelly's piece for the jewelry swap. I packed it up and sealed the box, taped it shut and brought it with me to work so I would remember to ship it later. Then I realised I don't have friggin photos. Hopefully she will post a picture or two on her blog, (and maybe let me borrow one so I can talk about the creation process. Since noone likes a picture-less blog, here is some blurry bead soup!

I used these silver peanut beads for the first time, and all the friggin silver came off on my hands. I wasn't even using a really bead-fondle-y technique. Bah! Stupid peanuts...Well, now they're silver lined...More on that after she gets ner piece. I didn't even realize the problem until I was past the point of no return. Pass the word to our fellow beaders, peanut beads =/= finish-fast >:-(


  1. Stupid peanut beads! Thanks for the info on them and I can't wait to see the picture of the finished piece!

  2. I will definitely take pictures as soon as I get it... and will post them ASAP. You are more than welcome to use them on your blog as well! Thank you so much for participating. I can't wait to see it. I love everything of yours that I've seen... so I'm totally psyched!
