Lisa,
I cannot tell you how glad I am you chose to follow my tutorial because you have created the perfect necklaces (bracelet)!
They are absolutely fabulous!

I love the colors you've chosen as well as the small beads. Nice effect with those one.
I am sorry to hear that some of the sharpies smudged - mine markers didn't smudge at all maybe because right after painting the seeds I left them aside to dry for a while. As for nail polishing beads - I always stick them on a tooth pick, stick the toothpick into a cork board, Styrofoam board or modeling clay and that way you will not have any trouble polishing the bead. Hope this helps.

Once again, fantastic job!

thanks maya! that's a fabulous idea, to use the toothpick to paint the seeds. i hadn't thought of that. i'll add a little note onto the post with this idea.
actually, i did let my sharpie-d seeds and beads dry before threading them. who knows what happened, but the necklace keeps getting more and more smudged, so now i'm not using it anymore :( but i'm sure that with the polish it'll be lovely!
thanks again! :) lisa
