Welcome back to me! Blog posts are like buses, you wait ages for one, then.... never mind. I love using tiny beads. Recently I've been exploring the technique of beading around a stone in order to set it. I specially like the potential of beading around unfoiled Swarovski crystals becasue of the way that the crystal reflects the light and the way that the beaded edge can be seen inside the stone like a kaleidoscope.
