AHA! Moment Number Three
I was back at it this morning, trying new small beads in different shapes. I still couldn't go near that 10mm sized round bead, but I did make some passable 25mm rounds. I also made some 3/4" square beads.
I cheated a bit with these, though. Somebody needs to invent a square bead roller. I resorted to covering clear, Lucite beads I bought in a moment of weakness last year. They were in the "trash 'em" box until I looked at them with new eyes last night. Another Aha! moment.
The 25mm round beads started out life as plain, unglazed, white bisque beads. Hey, where there's a will, there's a way, and all that.
