Bead-tastrophie!

katz, you know what I'm talking about...

I was making a multi-stranded necklace tonight (photo to left... 4 strands to be exact, 2 of which were size 15* seed beads!) and I wasn't using enough temporary crimps on the ends of my strands after I finished stringing beads on them. As I was checking the necklace for size, I happened to drop one of the strands and... *eeek!* ... beads flew everywhere!!!


(I tried to sweep them up as good as I could, but I'm sure I'll be finding these beads here and there for months to come!)

(*Size 15 seed beads are tiny little buggers!!!
If I spilled a container of those, I would chalk it up to experience and just vacuum the SOB's right up, forget about saving them!)

Without good bi-focals it would be very hard to locate every one of those guys - I guess you need more end crimpers to save that happening again
The necklace looks good though, they must go like hotcakes!!

Yeah If i spill beads and I can't get them all picked up, I take the loss and vacuum them up. With cats around I have a few too many beadtastrophies lol.. punkin has spillied a few too many of my projects. I was thinking the new swiffer flick might help out with beadtastrophies.
