The RAW is coming along really nicely, although I’ve barely made a dent in my collection of culled beads. Hopefully this means that I’ll be able to go forward with the design that I have planned. I’m hoping I’ll be able to add at least another 15 inches or so of beadwork before the next stage.
I’ve been adding larger beads like 8/o’s and TOHO triangles to the edges here and there, but they’re starting to pile up nonetheless. I’ll probably end up having a bead cup to capture the larger beads as they start to take up too much space. I’ll be able to incorporate them into stage two when it’s time to add embellishments and such.
One thing that I’ve noticed during this project that hasn’t come up before is how much more obvious nylon tail threads are compared to Fireline. Because the thread is so much softer, it always seems to be in the way. As this swatch of right angle weave has grown, I’ve been stopping every few additions to weave in old tails. Normally I would just leave them all in place and weave everything in at the end, but that just isn’t an option here.
