This evening I made a little crystal heart necklace from a pattern I found online:
It came to together fairly easily. I was feeling too lazy to try to thread two beading needles, so I used tiger tail. it wasn't bad doing right angle weave with tiger tail, and the ends came out at the perfect spot that I could thread on the lighter pink beads to make it into a necklace. There was only one problem - running the tiger tail through the beads caused it to curl much like curling ribbon does, and it won't hang straight as a pendant. I tried running it though straightening pliers, and hanging a weight on it to stretch it (I don't have enough time between now and valentine's day for that to work, even if it would work eventually). I hate the idea of unstringing all those seed beads to thread it some other way - any suggestions?
I love to make little things like cards and jewelry, because I love to share them. I love blogging about them because I can share them with even more people. If you see something you really like, send me an
- if it isn't already promised to someone else, I will probably mail it to you.
