I would like to see what your niece is doing. I can teach her or anyone for that matter to do the same work I do in beads if she is interested; it's really no biggie and a very simple process. I can walk her through it in no time, or anyone for that matter. Anyone interested just let me know. I enjoy teaching it. You may email privately if you like.
I knew these had to have taken a tremendous amount of time. They just really fascinate me. I have no knowledge of beading so appreciate the information. My niece will be astounded. She is just beginning and we have all been so proud of her for her projects. I had just never seen work like yours. Thanks so much for sharing your work and your information. I will ask my niece what type of beads she uses but I do know she purchases them from a local craft store in her area so they aren't the ones you refer to I'm sure. I will share the information with her. I will be in touch after I visit with her. Have you been doing this for a long time?
