Meanwhile, little steps.
We at Mirrix have decided to do our best to fill in our online store with all the "stuff" you could possible need. Hence, we were so excited to run into the tulip beading needles. Received my first order the other day and did not waste time breaking out a needle and breaking it in. They are indeed beautiful, functional and they don't bend easily. I can even thread them. What is more they seem to be able to squeeze through tiny bead spaces again and again. I was amazed. So whether your are using the shedding device or not (and especially when not) these are the needles for you. They come in a nice little package to keep them safe.
|This is the piece right off the loom. I used the shedding device and the piece smooth and perfect. Not one mistake. I was so proud of myself!|
|I tied overhand knots to finish the warp threads, trimmed them and then folded over a couple of rows of beads and glued it down. Easier than having to sew it down.|
|Sewed Duponi silk to back before folding it up and sewing it together.|
Will show more pictures later. Right now I have to finish those bracelet kits.
