Bead Table Wednesday

I finally got my act together to participate in Heather Powers' Bead Table Wednesday! You can check out the Flickr group here.  And of course, I am enjoying the new Hipstamatic app on my phone, I am still kind of struggling to figure out how it works. I need an instruction manual or something.

Today, my bead table looks like this. I am still trying to use lampwork beads. I have so much of it and rarely use them, so you'll probably see lampwork mixed into pieces quite a bit for the next few days.
I did a little beading early this morning with my coffee. Sometimes it just works out that way, if say, there isn't anything distracting me on the internets.
You'll also see my new Tronex tools. I plan on talking more about these in a separate post, in the near future, I promise. But for now I will just say: NIGHT & DAY. I love them so much more than the Lindstroms.... they just feel better in my hands. I am looking forward to getting some bent nose, and some short chain nose, but for now, these are sufficient to do most things.

Anyhoo, what's on your bead table today?


  1. I can't believe I just heard you say you need an instruction manual. I thought you burned those before bringing any into your house ;)

  2. Well I wish my bead table were this presentable! Over the holidays things--other than beading things---got piled on top.

    I love lampwork beads and have a ton! I keep telling myself not to buy any more, but somehow they find there way to my home.

    I can't wait to hear about your favorite tools. I'm in need of some good ones.

  3. Can't wait to hear about the tools. Are the 3rd ones cutters? Oh, I got my snippets yesterday and love, love them and can't wait to do something with them - hopefully this weekend.

    I'm glad you have a lot of lampwork beads. I think you need more. :-)

  5. I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts about the Tronex tools. I have Lindstroms.

    Love the BTW idea, I'm off to take a pic of my table now...

  6. Looking forward to the comments on the tools. Love to get a recommendation before buying.

  7. Did you know you can shake your iphone and the histamatic will pick a random setting for you - fun and full of suprises. I love that silly thing!

  8. If I could actually FIND my bead table, I could post about it LOL! Yours is way too clean - it's freakin' me out!

  9. I think I wrote on Flickr this was like looking at tool porn LOL - and here they are again haunting me !

I'm sorry to have to turn on the word verification here, but I got fed up with spammers comments!

Better than a thousand hollow words, is one word that brings peace.
