Hello Everyone, I have a question about making the yard parrals. About a month ago my wife took me to HOBBY LOBBY for her to get jewelry supplies. While there I noticed that they have "seed beads" that are made of wood and the same size as the blue/black glass beads that are supplied in kits for the parrals. I thought wow! I went and purchased some.
Am I correct in my thinking to use these wooden seed beads for parrals? My thinking is that in ancient ships they would not have used glass due to the fracturing/manufacturing issues and depending on the time frame are manufacturers trying to simulate iron? Any advise and comment would be welcome. As my wife says, I am too much of a perfectionist at this hobby (I LOVE IT, fits my old sarge personality!) .
