I finished my last teaching engagement for the year. I have a wonderful weekend with the ladies of the Bead Society of Greater New York. I am looking forward to a break, working on some new pieces, writing some already created pieces that I will be teaching in 2014 and most important visiting with family.
A note on kits: All newer kits will no longer contain needles and thread. I am finding that many people have their own thread and needles preferences. But all beginning level kits will contain needles and thread.
I use some after market coated Swarovski crystals. These after market coatings may be somewhat more fragile. When stitching these crystals be careful not to dig or scrap your needle into the crystal front or back.
I do check all crystals before packaging for quality control. I do not send out chipped or scraped crystals. I personally have had no issues.
I can not replace these crystals if you dig or scrape the crystal.
ALSO, please coat your crystal back with finger nail polish to prevent wear on the crystal point.
