I'm working on pairing seed beaders right now.

|I used the lampwork tube bead in a bracelet rather than make it a pendant for a necklace.|
Yeah, I'm sorry, but there has to be one. I'm not disparaging these materials, and have even used most of them, but for THIS blog hop, please do not send:
:: Plastic, plastic pearls, or metalized plastic ::
(exceptions -- quality vintage beads in new condition)
:: Seed beads NOT going to a seed beader/weaver ::
:: Anything you have considered throwing away ::
:: Second quality beads ::
and per the request of this large, worldwide group,
no religious, political, or similar beads.
Also, if you are sending overseas, be sure to ask if there are restrictions. Many island nations are NOT allowed to have seeds or certain shells sent into their country and it will have to be destroyed.
Stay tuned for even more info.
Please stay tuned to this page, as more information, tips, and hints will follow!
