after getting your wisdom teeth removed and you look like a chipmunk and can't go 2 seconds without slobbering all over yourself.....
I didn't count but I'm pretty sure there are at least 100 spacers there. Hand cut, hand decorated, and the most time consuming - hand polished.
I keep wondering if there's an easier way to do this but I guess not. It's the polishing after the liver of sulfur treatment that takes the most time. I'm seriously considering whether to adjust pricing on these things to reflect the total handmade-ness of these beads.
Anyhow, at least it kept me busy today. I wasn't fit for anything but being at home. Tomorrow? I have big plans for melting some glass :)
