Right after I took the photo to the left, when I was all set to share with you some more stuff about adding beads -
Well, um, yes, sometimes the beads have a smaller hole than usual and they won't go on the thread.
You guessed it - the teardrop shaped bead broke when I tried to force it, and it was my last one in that color - panic! I need it to finish my necklace which is 2/3 done!
I can't go down to the local bead store because they are at the big bead show so - there's my excuse to go to the bead show...yeah, I know, as if I needed an excuse. (grin)
