latest project, beading a handle to a knife!
well, I have never used superglue to bead anything, so this was a first time for me. And because I am not used to using superglue, I covered both palms of my hands in superglue before I even started. This of course made me hate this project in the beginning, but I actually had a lot of fun beading it. I love beading because it puts me into a meditation, my mind is clear of all things, sometimes I find myself counting the beads and I am already in the 100s!
So what I learned in this project is-
Number one, I hate how super glue dries white, so a good way to make it look nice when you are finished is to use Alcohol to clean it up.
Also, it i way easier to bead if you can find a needle small enough for the beads and have a big enough loophole for the string you are using. You can even use thread and double or triple strand it to make it strong enough. This makes the process go much faster and less frustration for getting that string through the hole.
Well, here is a picture of the handle.
The first few rows of beads was already beaded, the beads were way to big, they did not wrap around the handle nicely. So I switched it up to a smaller bead size.
