making beads February 11, 2006 5:57 PM

for my recent project I made beads from black walnuts. as used in the project they look like this: http://www.make-a-shakere.com/beads-closeup.jpg (I wanted to insert a picture but I don't get a formatting toolbar in this group...) I made instructions for making the beads and put them on this page http://www.make-a-shakere.com/walnut-shaker-beads.html it was kind of fun to make them and I liked the whole project. My web site is about crafts.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Those are cool. They look to be of Indian type jewelry. Very different. I like different. Most people make the same ideas. But that is cool. Lou C  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

might be hard to get right now since they fall off the trees from late august into october. If you can get them, be sure to wear gloves when milling them, the file will nick and cut your hands. I also found it useful to do the guitar hand cramp thing - holding the nuts tight cramped up my hands after a while. You spread your fingers as wide as they can go and press against a wall or tree or something to open up the blood vessles and stretch the muscles.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
