Q&A with Shooglie Crafts

Glass Girl asked:
These are lovely. I like the proportion of seed beads to wire - a bit more wire with a few bead sprinkled in. It looks like you started with a regular top wrapped bead and then added the wire/beads on top of that. Is that right?
Shooglie Crafts answered:
thanks Glass Girl - that is exactly what I did. This was my first attempt at adding beads to the wrap and I need more practice, but quite like the result.
