    Default My first (more serious) beading adventure!

    Hi there,

    I hijacked a thread already asking all these questions and now I can finally share the results. I am really happy with my new Tahitian keshi and emerald beads strand. Even though some of the little knots could have been tighter - it was just so much fun making this, very addictive!
    I used a tiny needle to push the knots (single strand PowerPro 0.13mm) up to the previous bead. I need to get a little something for the tassel but other than that, here's a ton of pictures.

    Wearing the right colours while threading the beads.

    Well done! It turned out really well, didn't it?!
    How the heck did you get it over your head for doubling??? Is it not finished yet, have I jumped the gun?

    Thanks! hehe, there's a little spring clasp, it's finished now, but most pics are of the unknotted strand.

    Pretty! I love the gradient of color between the beads and the pearls.
