My other bead collection. I went to the local bead shop, risking smelling like pachulie for the rest of the day, so I could get some findings for my turquoise necklace, the piece at the top. The leather has become worn and brittle, needing replacement. While there I had the owner fix the head pin on the stone to the left. I tried three times last night, and broke three head pins in a row. I finally concluded that I don't do this enough to know what I'm doing! She, the shop owner, created the loop on the headpin for free, it helped that I was buying findings. Needless to say I had to wipe the drool off of my stones when she was done fondling them. Posted by Picasa
