I think you should definitely use peanut beads for a bezel again.  Tis gorgeous  ;D

The peanut beads are those little dangly ones yes?  I like them, I think they look really tactile, purrfeck for stroking  ;D

The peanut beads are the little peanut shaped ones with a hole in the middle and a blob at each end. They look great on the outside of the bezel but the spare blobs poking into the inside caused me all sorts of problems. Will use little drops next time instead  :)

Ahhh right, I can see a couple in the picture on the corners, I did wonder, I thought those drops were called peanuts too  ::)

Nope, they're called drops  :P They are mostly 4mm although some come in a smaller size... but even that was a tad too big for what I wanted. I need micro-drops that are the size of half a peanut bead, keep hoping one of the Japanese factories will start making them  ;D

Are the new smaller drops no good then Lynn? http://www.noseksjustgems.com/productDetail.asp?PID=113128&categoryID=11277  I just bought some and they're tiny, easily half the size of the daggers.

Oooh, the new Rizos  ;D I've got some of those too, they're like rice grains and would be PERFECT for this bezel if they weren't quite so long and spiky - fussy moo that I am  ::) But I will find another use for them  ;)

I wonder if I could make something suitable on the torch?  Give me the dimensions and I'll see what I can do.  :)

Thought I would be brave and post on here this week.  Choker, bracelet and earrings for a 60's weekend.
