Deckchairs and dragons (yet another bead hog!)

Post by Scrap Monkey on Sat 3 Jul 2010 - 11:05

I have a bit of a 'stripes' thing going at the moment, and these reminded me of deckchairs!



....ever wondered what dragon skin looked like?

I reckon it's a bit like this....

Love the dragon skin ones, but not keen on the ones with the bubbles on, they remind me of a characters in a CBBC program can't remember the name.

Ive just been to your website and i could cheerfully buy at least half of whats on there.

1. do the stripes go on a pandora chain then (I havent got one but am toying with the idea)
2. can you make any of the beads into earrings
3. if I were to buy the stripes or dragons, what do I string them on, as it were, and what do I do about a clasp?


I LOVE all that new batch, the spots, the stripes and the dragons.

Oh thank you

1. The only ones that fit on a pandora chain are the ones on the 'Bear hugs' page at the moment...(they need to be made on different mandrels, i.e have bigger holes) ......but I can certainly have a go at stripey big-hole beads. I'll put it on my 'to do' list .

2. Some of the bigger beads would be a bit too chunky for earrings (although it's down to personal choice). There are quite a few sets which contain smaller beads that would be perfect for earrings; e.g. Summer Swirls, Summer Swirls mini-set, and both of the turquoise dotty sets all have a matching pair included that would be suitable. Pretty Dotty are tiny and earring-sized. Dots about Blue would be good, earrings and a focal bead for a necklace.

If you like a pair, I'm happy to make them into earrings for you, either plain or with coils (like the earrings on the jewellery page).

3. I do offer a stringing service, most of the beads I make would look great on a leather thong; I use a sterling silver lobster clasp (silver plate wears off quite quickly if you get 'warm' like me ).

....and it goes without saying that I would post to France .

I like them ALL, but have to agree the dragon skin is rather special.

Jane, the black and white won't fit, need bigger holes, but I already have stripey big-hole beads on my 'to do' list
