ATTN: Nigel
« on: February 01, 2009, 10:05:16 pm »
I has a special bead request. (another one...)



Can you make me a couple of accent beads to put next to the sewing machine? That's on bias tape right now, but the final necklace will be black velvet ribbon 3/5in wide. I may be able to barter some natural beads I just picked up this weekend. I got a shitload of freshwater pearls!

HOT! Yes.

I've worn that a couple of days to work, and I have customers like, "You're wearing a sewing machine around your neck. Weird." And I go, "THANKS!"

I was at Michael's today for some beading stuff and couldn't find accent beads I wanted with it, so I figured if anything you could do something much better. :D

It needs a center bead to go between the jump rings... how wide a space is that?

Also, is the ink blue or does it just look that way?

I think it's more of a gray.

the distance between the jump rings is 3/4th of an inch, and the height of the ring itself is a little over a 1/4th of an inch.

Michael's. Seriously. That's where I got mine. It was like 5 bucks.

I was going to go to Michael's today, but it's raining now.  :| I HATE driving here in the rain.

Did they renovate the Michael's down there yet? They did one of them here in RI and it's fucking AMAZING. There is a whole huge section for Jewelry now, not just a couple of aisles. It's incredible. And they always have someone on staff there to help order things or give advice.

I'm not sure I have only been there once. I usually shop at secondhand and discount outlets like Biglots. If I don't find what I'm looking for there then I go to stores what sell new/better stuffs. It's a habit I picked up from being poor.  :sad:

Yeah, Michael's tends to be pricey, but they do give out 40% off coupons every week. So I gotta go back next week and pick up more stuff. Joann's is terribly hit or miss depending on the store (Warwick sucks but North Attleboro rocks, for example). I like my local fabric mill. The notions can be expensive, but their bargain loft (everything $1.99 a yard  :fap:) is useful.

Yeah Joann's is too pricey for me even with the coupons they send. The coupons are for like 40-50% off one item Mon-Fri but only on items that are not on sale, so when I go everything I would want is on sale for like 15% off!! Those fuckers  :argh!: No super cheap Ginger thread snips for me. For fabric I usually just go to Walmart, I HATE Walmart but they have fabric for $1.50 a yard.
