I make most of my beads on 1/16s, I only use the 3/32 for larger focals. I'd always thought the smaller hole was easier to work with, but I have had several client tell...

Hmmm, what a great idea, I'm tempted to try making one. Is the size Hershey Kiss-like or bigger?

Oooh, I hadn't found that thread... And now Squid has made me lust over an odd glass (custard, anyone have any of that around?) that was produced in 2008, in a COE that I almost never use :lol:

What glass is this?

I'm pretty sure it's BE. Not just because I stored it with the BE but also because the beads below are encased with clear and they haven't cracked yet. Other than that I have no clue what this...

I'm guessing that they mean the object needs to be or mostly be "fine craft" (it sounds like they are allowing for some elements to be purchased like clasps or accent beads). Though I agree the...

When I received the note thanking me for the quick shipping and asking me the shard used in the bead, I admit I was thrown for a loop. I have been thinking about my policy on sharing my...

I had been waiting until my next general wire buy to get it from Monsterslayer :( Silly me, that will teach me to be reasonable and wait because I don't need it right now!
