New Video : Pulling Stringer

Chris and I have spent a stupid amount of time today making this four minute movie.  It was supposed to be so quick and simple but it turned into a small-mammoth-sized project.

Anyway, the video is about pulling stringer and it's up on the old YouTube as I type.

I hope you find it useful.

EDIT : Chris has edited together some of the outtakes from my stringer video.  I warn you, the following video contains swearing so please don't watch it if you are easily offended by such things but if you do want to see me behaving like a complete idiot please click here.


  1. Hi Laura
    I just loved looking at the stringer pulling video as it is always fascinating how you make beads - (I thought you actually bought the stringer) so to see it being made was really good BUT I cannot tell you how much I laughed at the out takes. I watched them over and over again and still laughed... and credit to you for going through it so many times to get it right and thanks for sharing it. What a fabulous start to the week!
