This design is superb. I haven't used seed beads as I suffer from very stiff finger joints so find 3mm beads are the smallest I can manage. I will be trying this but do you use a needle for stringing the seed beads? Will experiment with different beads and hopefully report back. Once again, many thanks for the lovely design.

Hi Sheila, Thank you for your kind words about the project! I believe that the blogger does use a needle to thread the nylon thread through the seed beads and crystals. Seed beads tend to have really small openings, so the needle will help you fit the thread through those tiny spaces. I might also suggest that you try posting a question about the best way to work with small seed beads to our sites Facebook page. It is monitored our editors and is a great resource for helpful tips and suggestions from our Facebook friends; perhaps they can offer some more guidance or suggestions for working with those tiny beads!
