Slowly I'm building another twenty-hour necklace in fits and starts.
I pretty much love the one on the right because the beads are too, too fabulous. They're blue glass with pink lining, frosted, and reading royal purple. Delicious!

While preparing for Tuesday's class, I happened on this cute little egg-shaped beaded bead.
 With my normal (on the tight side) thread tension, it only needs a little embellishment around the equator to be quite firm, but it's barely embellishment, and it's awkward, though perhaps with a loosey-goosey bead it would be easier.
 It's possible that if the base bead were too loose, the overlay wouldn't stiffen it enough though.

Dunno. We'll see I suppose.
