HI,Ann:-)
Fine 'Wish List' for April:-)
The first ones-I have in my box-they are not as expensive here.
The button is nice-can be even used as a cabochon.
Those dichroic,round shapes with the hole-I think I do not like.I wouldn't know,what to do with them.
I've never bought the'twin beads',but I've seen fine bracelets with them.I'll get tried them once.
Dichroic cabs are fantastic-I also love gemstone briolette.
The lampwork frog is super-super- and I've got lots of pearls,but rarely use them.
As concerning Draggers-I think I've stopped to like them,there are too many of them seen in all blogs.
Toho seed beads are sometimes fine to get used,but I still prefer 'Miyuki'-they are more equal.
The square cab is perfect-I love it and the Swarovski pearls....do not know:-)))
Warm Hugs-Halinka-

For some reason I've recently been drawned a lot to Toho seed beads, I think it must be cause of the different range of colors they have compared to Miyuki (which I also like a lot), maybe, I don't know lol ^^;
I found the dichroic donut bead looking really pretty; last month I got my hands on the book "Dimensional Bead Embroidery" and it contained some tips on how to use non-cabochon like beads, among there donut beads and I've been in a mood to try something similar like that out :)
The frog I picked out cause it was so adorable, although I wouldn't know what to do with it lol. I suppose when it comes to bead I tend to pick out stuff not only that I need but that I want, even if they don't fill a function at the time I decided to buy 'em lol :)

I like the wish list Anna (the idea AND the choices you made) I have used the dichroic donuts before, one of them I bezeled the outer edge and made a delica bail, then attached a small bezelled dichroic cab under the donut. It made a nice pendand and didn't really need any further embellishment!
