  1. Always handy to know where to get hold of various beads - thanks. I like the way you've alternated them with the Silky, jolly handy if you only have a few left to use. I've used them as a substitute for silky which works but must say I'd not thought of alternating them so thanks for the idea.

    1. That was pretty much my intention. I was being economical with the Kheops and the Silkies. Plus, the Silky beads help soften the look of the design which would be very angular with all Kheops. You've probably noticed that I tend to make designs that are smooth and curvy most of the time.

  2. I so appreciate the beautiful pieces of "art" through your bead weaving..the colours and beads that brings it altogether is very you so generously share.. Thank you Linda...I do have a question though ...if you had only a few choices as to what silver/pewter & bronze seed beads what would they be...there are so many tones and I can't order them all.

    1. If I could choose only two bronzes and two silvers, these are what I would buy in 15/0, 11/0 and 8/0:

      Miyuki "Dark Bronze" (457)
      Miyuki "Metallic Chocolate" (461)
      Miyuki "Duracoat Galvanized Pewter" (4222)


      Toho "Nickel Plated" (711) or Miyuki "Nickel Plated" (190)

      The color of the Toho and Miyuki nickel plated seed beads are the same but I think that the Toho ones are a little easier to find. I would definitely try to find the Miyuki 15/0's in that color because Toho's are very irregularly shaped. I do like Toho's 11/0's though. They're a bit big but they are a nice round shape. I recently bought some Miyuki 11/0's but haven't tried them yet.

      If you prefer a brighter silver than the Duracoat Pewter, Miyuki's "Duracoat Galvanized Light Pewter" (4221) is very nice too. I happen to love the darker pewter because it gives my jewelry an "old" look.
