Superduos and/or Twin Beads as well as little Firepolished beads are very practical for attaching beautiful lampwork glass beads and can be found in a myriad of colors and finishes, exactly what you need to make a matching rope for focal beads. This rope can be used in many other designs. It builds up pretty quicky, perfect for gifts and last-minute projects.

My book Diamond Weave, written in collaboration with Gerlinde Lenz, can be found on Amazon in selected countries, or from the press - CreateSpace, and soon digitally here on Craftsy, I started beading in 2004. Off-loom beadweaving and bead embroidery are my favorite beading techniques. I won 3 times a gold medal in the Fire Mountain Gems and Beads beading contests, two in 2006, of which one Grand Prize Gold Medal and one in 2016. I also won a bronze medal in 2009 and a silver medal in 2010. I've also written in books and magazines - find out more on my blog:
