Thread size, that is. These two baubles have the same number of beads, but the one on the left is worked with size 10 thread while the one on the right is size 20. I think in the size 10 one the thread too obvious. I won't undo it, but I made another one using finer thread, which I think works better. The red and gold baubles are fine:

It's impossible to predict what people will ask for at a fair, but I have a fair range of different products, from Christmas tree decorations to necklaces. And I can always take orders.
Lovely! Good luck with the fair!ReplyDelete
I love the baubles! I agree with your choice of the finer thread. You will have quite a display!ReplyDelete
What about dangly earrings Jane? Are the beaded balls too big for that?ReplyDelete
I’ve got to figure out how to attach the earring hooks. I’m thinking of trying to combine tatting with the beaded ball. I think they would be good for earrings.Delete
Hahaha, size Always matters, you know ;-D Fortunately, smaller size is a definite asset in this case, phew!ReplyDelete
Fabulous collection and wishing you success at the fair.
Size does seem to matter here. But....ReplyDelete
Methinks you may, just a bit, be overthinking the Fair. But then, that's what successful people do: prepare sufficiently.
I do wish you success and hope you have fun!
I think you’re probably right! But I figure the things will be there for the next fair.Delete
