After checking out the Singer Rotary cutter thingy I went over to the beading section. I had purchased a magazine that had Hardanger embroidery and found a project I wanted to try. However; I didn't have the magazine. I knew it had beads and I thought it said the Swarovski ones. I couldn't remember the size or what kind. I just figured I'd wing it. I don't think these are quite the "real" thing but they were 25% off and if they didn't work, I'd figure out something else. Plus the more I looked at them, the prettier they got. They just "called" to me. I know nothing of beads either. I picked up some needles and I'll see how it goes.
They are delica beads. 192 rose colored ones. Oh well. I'll just have to be more creative with the inside cutwork with the ones I bought. The DVD I bought is really great and I may be able to just fake it. The purple is just way to pretty not to use.
I did an online search of delica beads. I'm lost. LOL.
