I'm a bit of a prolific crafter compared to my friend. She'll take 2 hours to perfect something (she's even worse with card making than beading!), compared to me being really quick to decide on colours, shape, pattern. So I managed to make 3 necklaces, one pendant, a bracelet and a couple of dangles to add to earring wires I have at home. But I'm so pleased that I've been using the correct wire for my jewellery (thanks to all the internet research I do, plus all the magazines I read), and I can now crimp perfectly each time.
Needless to say we both got carried away with the beads that we wanted to use. It is great to be able to decide what you're going to make then choose precisely the number of beads you want to use, rather than what I usually do online and in shops - see nice beads, buy them, then have to think afterwards of what I want to do with them. Ends up being very expensive.
So very pleased with my makes and have lots more ideas on what I can use my beads in my supplies for.
