So I started off beading by making stitch markers. Then I made earrings. Most recently I made many necklaces as teacher gifts for my kids' teachers:
But when I was doing some spring (winter) cleaning, I found a working watch face that I bought at Michael's so yesterday and today (I had to keep remaking it to make it fit) I made this:
The only problem is that tonight it broke! I got a bit worried when I was buying new beading wire and it suggested #2 crimp beads or #1 crimp tubes or something like that, and I thought maybe my crimp tubes were too small, so I bought new ones. I don't know if I'm using the wrong sized crimp tubes or if I'm not crimping them right. So far (knock on wood) my necklaces haven't broken, just the watch. Any suggestions?
