When she said I should make sure that wouldn't happen, I remembered I had used some of these as spacers many years ago when I first started beading and eventually the outer coating did rub off a bit. (Thank you!)
I decided to use the brown iris e-bead mix in a flat peyote stitch bracelet. I think I ended up with 8 beads across and have about 2.5 inches done. It took about an hour because I had to cut off my first attempt and start over AND I had a couple furry little friends who were taking turns needing attention. :)
I'm kind of excited about possibly using my flat peyote as a base for sewing on some other embellishments. Now that would be a first for me!! I think it was Sara from Softflex who suggested it. (Thank you!)
I LOVE getting suggestions and guidance from you guys!! I don't have anyone to bead with here so I sincerely appreciate my virtual beading friends!! :)
Beginning next week, I will be thanking everyone who has commented on A Bead A Day in the last few months. I will be incorporating "thank you's" with links back to some great bead bloggers for the next couple of weeks. This is such a highlight for me every day!! I am so happy to see you guys here and love helping others make new connections!
