On the cover of the February/March issue you indicate that a project using peanut seed beads is inside, but I can't find it.  Which page/project is it?  This question is probably for the editors unless someone on the forum found it.

Pilonese,

I don't find anthing with peanut beads either; They mush have hid it, if it is there. It's not in the Super Beadwork or the beadwork that I can find. I also would like to see some designs worked up with this new bead. I bought some a few weeks ago, without any idea of what to do with them.

Happy Beading!!

It's Glorianne Ljubich's  North Star necklace, page 40.  I remember reading the materials list and being surprised there were peanut beads in the necklace.  I can only see them now if I really look for them.

Thanks Cat,

You solved the mystery. It really is hard to see the peanuts in the project from the picture.

Happy Beading!!

Thanks I see it now.  The problem is if I use an unusal bead I want it to show.  In that pattern you can't even tell it's a peanut.

Here is a spiral necklace I made with the peanuts.

Philonese, Thanks for the visual, it helped alot to see why it is so hard to detect the peanuts in the designs. I looked at your picture before I read what you wrote, and to be honest, I didn't realize that the white beads where peanuts till after I read what you wrote and went back and looked again.. Thanks

 

Happy Beading!!

This is lovely!  I didn't notice the peanuts at first, but I love the way they edge the faceted beads.  Are the turquoise beads fire-polished picasso?  I love the color combo.

I like that-great use of the peanut beads.  I love those picasso colors as well.
