If I had had more time to be more organised, I would have had several projects lined up to do on a beading tray on my lap but what with Christmas and everything........
I saw that Celia at Jencel had a sale on, including her beading kits so I ordered some. That was easy, then, I just tipped the beads into a bead tray, sent his nibs to get the tools and away I went.
This kit included a very pretty agate slice and all the beads needed to make the necklace. In the instructions the method for making loops was different from how I normally do them so I gave it a go and was pleased to find they mostly came out neat and evenly sized.
I made the necklace slightly shorter than intended and added a clasp of my own. I made some earrings with the unused beads.
