I'm also experimenting with waxed thread and knotting, and I'm trying to get a good understanding with some wire I also bought ages ago...but that, I'm afraid is not going to happen very soon. But the real challenge here for me is stringing. The simple idea of arranging beads for a necklace or a bracelet freaks me out.I know, right? Beadweaving is so much easier! :D You follow some techniques and then start experimenting, but you have some rules that guide you. Even when I have to put together some beaded beads, I really feel lost. Is it weird? Does anybody else think that a whole beadweaved necklace is easier than arranging beads on a thread? I guess sometimes your mind just needs a kick in the "..." to step out from the cage you put it into without even realizing. That's what I'm trying to do right now. Goodbye comfort zone!
