i started a new beaded necklace this afternoon. i have learned that i cannot use the beadalon knotting tool that i bought to make knotting necklaces easier..it's actually harder in my opinion. instead, i use a needle to get the knot as close to the bead as possible and then i use tweezers to tighten the knot. so of course i'm using pyrite, what else?
(the static in the house is driving me nuts because it results in lint everywhere, including my workspace!)
have you gone to the grocery store to stock up on milk, bread, flashlights and gas masks? i prepared for the upcoming snowstorm by going to the jewelry supply store to get more materials. :)
