Re: Creating Beads
Take a look at Daniel Lopacki's website (www.lopacki.com) where he has an incredible detailed tutorial on bead cutting. Click on "Bead Making Info" on the homepage, was also published in LJ a number of years ago, maybe in 1998? He specializes in opal beads but the technique carries over to other materials as well. I make stone beads and it can be a tedious process, but if you have designs or materials that are unique it's totally worth it!
Hope that'll help you out, CaroL
