Beads on my mind

Well, I swatched yesterday for my Hanami. I am disappointed in my beads, they are way too dull against the rose petal fino. So I've ordered some beads from the Bead Wrangler (Not Affiliated, except as a customer).

I ordered a pink and also two different crystal colors. Melanie suggested that the crystal beads would look like raindrops in the 'blossoms' part of the stole. I haven't decided if I'm going to bead the entire stole yet, but I like the concept.

I'm thinking of ordering from Bead Wrangler for my Hanami as well!

Please let us know what you think of them when your beads show up!

I order a ton of beads from Emilia Beadelia's E-bay store (NA). I'm still not sure if I want to go subtle, shimmer, or obvious. I've been holding the beads up to the yarn I'm using to see which I like the best for the design. I'm also wondering if I want to do pink, white, or crystal/silver beads. *sigh*

I ordered my beads from beadwrangler. They were a little slow in delivering them, but when I contacted her she was very good about helping resolve the issue. The beads arrived yesterday, they are beautiful and were well packaged. I would order from her again.

I ordered from BeadWrangler once before - and was pleased with the service and especially the packaging. Her little 'film canister' packs are so much easier to handle and less spillage than the long tubes.

I'll let you all know when they get here.
