I had planned one test for today and yesterday had a completely different inspiration. Does this kind of thing happen to you? Indulge me for a moment while I wander a bit off topic. If you have been following along you know I am in the midst of organizing my beads. I need some of those bigger (and bigger is relative) jars. The craft store did not have the bigger jars when I was shopping yesterday and I almost walked out empty handed. I did, however recall that Mandy, at Beads for Brains, had asked for feedback on beaded bead instructions found at GyönGYIKék. I grabbed a bag of cheap plastic 8 mm pearls and that is where I got side tracked. I think a strand of silver beaded beads might be just what I need for one of those strands. Today made two test beads.

Thanks for indulging me. Stay tuned as I work on the slab necklace and watch for what happens to my test pieces.
