I have been working on the necklace I have been asked to make. It has been great fun and it is nearly finished. Here is what I have been doing:
Threading the wire through the tubing. That was a lot easier than I expected and it gives a really nice finish. I shall have to see what other colours are available.
The beads slide on very easily but the holes are a little too big and the beads won't stay in place.
I decided to locate the three beads together by drilling them and pinning them together. It was "fun" to try, as my drill bit was a little bit too short and my tiny drill not quite powerful enough and I spend ages getting the first hole drilled. I borrowed a small drill and achieved what I wanted in a minute flat! I guess good tools are worth the money you pay for it.
