Tomoka's Twist


Tomoka's Twist is a magical hair thingy I made. Hopefully, one day I will sell them once I get some real tools, perfect my method, and get prettier beads. Ciara's toenail clipper didn't work. I promise I will never use that again. I'm on ebay bidding on some handmade glass beads. Pretty beads are expensive. This is a picture of a tester just some woodlike beads from Hobby Lobby. If you know where I can get glass or wooden beads from, let me know.

Very cute!

In addition to eBay, check online for bead shows coming to your city.

Carmen In NC said...

Thank you ladies for the compliments.

Blackrussian, come back!!!

Mel, thanks for the compliment.

Muslimahlocs, thank you and I will answer your ? in a post.

Brunsli, awww and I will check into that. There's a lady at the hobby store that makes beads and I got the days she works. And NC is known for pottery so there should be some bead makers around here.

I have a friend who's a jeweler; I'll try to remember to pick her brain for cheap bead sources.

Muslimah took my other question.

Not sure what you were using the clippers for (cutting or bending?) but there are ALL MANNER of jewelry making tools in the bead section and flower arranging sections of any hobby store - pliers and what not, most of them are not that expensive, you just need to figure out what size and shape work best for your purpose.
(I've done my share of crafts and self-repair on jewelry.)
