Smile Stripes!

Hi Everyone-

I (finally) posted a new entry in my blog- using twisties and dots for striped beads. I use both methods all the time, and thought these might come in handy for someone. These have both been shown before by others, and I am not taking credit for coming up with these, just wanted to put somehting together that showed both methods.

Enjoy! Laura

Awesome tut. I love the way you use the disc of clear right at the equator to get the striped effect. Can't wait to try it! Making striped beads using dots is a technique I could never master. Now perhaps there is hope.

Thanks you guys- I don't post too often, but I visit here very day

Joan- we had a chance to visit Asheville last summer and there was an awesome art show doing on- some very high-bar work, and we jsut loved the area! Do you do the shows in the area? Ahseville seems to really spoort the local craftspeople. (Wish Ohio was teh same)

Thanks Anne for the compliments, that is one of my favorites too! Hope you are getting settled into your new digs-

Laura

Please please let me be able to recreate those beads you made using your techniques! I am woefully stripe challenged.
