New Tab Beads


Amanda from Chloe Boutique suggested that I make some tabular earring beads yesterday. So, I went off to do so last night. Here's my results (thanks Amanda for the suggestion & for purchasing them!). It's funny, that used to be the only kind of earring beads I made. But, since I got the lentil press, I've been hooked ever since. As I explained to Amanda, it's much more time-consuming to make tabs because they are shaped by hand and not by a press. Getting 2 to be the same size is much more difficult. I do like them, though, and will most likely make more very soon! Oh, by the way, there's another pair just like them listed in my Etsy shop! :0)
