I brought mine with me...hopefully soon I will get unpacked and organized and can make some more hair beads. I haven't made anything in a few years...I'm probably too blind to get the needle threaded now.


if you are serious, Cindy---try looking this up on the internet. I thought I had a phone number--but i could not find it. I do have the addy of the company whho makes them though. I use these for my quilting-- they are amazing. They are called: Optivisor. They are maganfying glasses of sorts on a visor that you wear on your head. Wear them with glasses or without.

I have a magnifier that goes around my neck, and I have magnifier eye glasses, those (not at the same time) and a small high intensity lamp I can point right at the work are what makes it doable for me.

I used to make a lot of beaded jewelry but haven't done it in a long time. I guess I just never really know what to do with my projects when I finish them. I used to make beaded pouches, little mini purses that you wear like a necklace but those are so time consuming.

Cheryl, You ought to make them for cellphone holders and sell them. Cellphone jewelry would be cool.

You can sell handmade things on Etsy.com Anything technology related should do really well.

I could very easily make cell phone holders. Maybe I should try one just for the fun of it. Thanks for the idea Tina.
