Just a little glimpse of my attempts today:
To the right you can see a layout with:
Yellow powderglass Krobo from Ghana, West Africa. The sky blue ones are from Indonesia. The brown slim tube ones are bamboo, and I believe they are from China.
I did finish that necklace earlier tonight and I am very happy with the final result. I have had those beads in my stock for quite a while now, almost a year. I will take a photo tomorrow in daylight and post it here.
To the left are some lilac/purple glass tubes that I bought in York, UK when we were there just after new years. I have combined them with facetted dyed bone beads and matte metalrounds. I will finish that one tomorrow.
