And spread out on the board, at any given time, is a selection of beads. I’m not making anything fancy – in fact – in the last six months, I’ve hardly done anything but stretchy elastic bracelets. I’m not making them for sale, I’m not making them for gifts. I’m not trying to build a reputation or promote my brand or …

Let the madness begin …

15% off the Great Wall of Czech (Beads)

These are excellent in bracelets because they lay comfortably flat on your wrist! Cubes Is there something about glass – traditionally so round and curvy, that says it shouldn’t be shaped into cubes? …
