Yes, it's true. I will write a blog post in exchange for beads - or most jewelry supplies for that matter. If you have a tool, supply, beads, finding, tutorial, pattern, etc. and would like someone to try it (gratis) and write about it, I'm here for you.* (half kidding, half serious - obviously depends on the product)
And now, back to our regularly scheduled programming
One of the more difficult decisions I face with each project is what color beads to use. That decision has become even harder now that I have moved into the realm of seed beads where there are gazillions of colors combined with tons of different finishes or coloring techniques (ok - so I exaggerate just a little).
