Making these little guys is absurdly addictive!! Guess what I'll be doing INSTEAD of working on my personal challenge piece?

By the way, does anyone have a good source for inexpensive ball chain and connectors?

Now, here's the final inspiration for 2008 -
Bead Societies!
Personally, I'm not a joiner - I'm lousy in groups - I've tried several times to be a part of various Etsy teams and I can't even do well virtually. BUT. If I were, I'd certainly look into being part of a bead society - many of them offer access to a communal library, shared resources, internal challenges, and all-around support for the bead-obsessed.

I might not get back to the blogging until the new year, so until we meet again,

Party On!!


  1. If you are looking for copper ball chain, I've got it at my studio, so I don't know how much it is, but I'll put it up on my web site tomorrow and you can tell me if you want some.

  2. I know what you mean. I don't do well in groups either, but you may have guessed that. LOL. I am thinking about joining a couple of societies this year. We'll see.... ;)

  3. @ Jade Dog - cool! I'm also looking for stainless steel/nickle - any leads there?

    @ LB - If anyone would understand, I knew it would be you. ;)

  4. They look like great fun to make!
    I tried to start a small beading guild here, but no one is into joining stuff, so we just continued meeting by chance...seems to work fine and we still share books and mags and cool places to get "stuff".

  5. I don't keep any of the other base metal ball chain on hand. No, they don't contain lead. The ball chain is solid copper, 50 cents a foot and the connectors are 5 cents each. Let me know. I'm not sure I'm going to list it, so e.mail me if you want some.

  6. I can see why you can't stop...they're luscious, Morwyn!

    I'd love to join a bead society too, but they're not so prevalent here in Australia.

    There's a little something for you on my blog, I hope you like it :)

  7. Happy New Year, Morwyn!
