Anne is crossing two size 13 Tulip beading needles in a size 15 seed bead while beading her Beaded Chain for Beaded Bead. Can you imagine? Crossing 2 size 13 needles in a size 15 Japanese seed bead? Wow. That's amazing.
Inventory is on its way from Japan so I hope bead stores will start calling me or emailing me firstname.lastname@example.org.
