I had some thread left over after doing the duck-bill so I kept beading on the face to try out my choice of glass chips. I was very pleased with the way they covered the fuchsia and yet let the warmth of that pink shine through. Also I was pleased to find a new kind of eye bead. It is hard to see here, because it fits so perfectly, but I used magatamas. They are so good since the large side of the bead makes a good eyelid and the hole, filled with a black 11, makes a good eyeball. My favorite ones, here, blend in with the glass so closely I may have to remove those and add plain bronze or gold ones. Lynx is calling and it is time to start the next issue.
