Just a quick post today as I have to go down to San Jose and cover those pesky Presbyterians for Religion News Service.
This came in my inbox today – a tutorial on how to use crimp beads from Beading Daily. Crimping is deceptively simple – only need one bead and one tool and two movements, but it is somehow hard to do properly. I thought this tutorial and its accompanying pictures were quite good and should help those of you who make the intermediate and advanced prayer beads in my book, Bead One, Pray Too.
In the next couple of posts, we will make a set of bridal prayer beads (it is June, after all – at least for a few more days) and I’ll tell you about the Bead for Life party I had last Saturday.
