I’ve been wondering for a long time what to do with this bead. It’s plain, without any banding, just with two or three ridiculous yellowish spots on its sides. I decided to do a cage that conceals the spots, as I thought they were just pointless. I’ve just recently bought grey wire, which is called “smoke”, while the warm grey one that I’m using for steampunk is called “gunmetal”, which is somewhat confusing. Anyway, grey wire is perfect for goth stuff. Black is sometimes too dark and you can’t see the details in wrapping and I always have mixed feelings about using silver, so something in the middle is just lovely.
