Hey everyone. I'm not updating as much as I'd like, but it's been because I've been making so many beads, not just laziness. I've been experimenting with different shapes a lot this month. I still love using a bead press because of the consistency in size, but hand-shaping focals is so fun!
This week I've been making nothing but bicones. It's bicone madness week I guess. I'm very proud of these beads, because long bicones have always been a shape I struggled with. In the past they always would come out wonky and uneven. The ends would be sharp and poorly defined. Something must have finally clicked for me because they are coming out beautifully. Take a look and tell me what you think.
They're all up for sale on my Etsy. Take a peek. :)
