murrini in the garden of good & evil

guess what?
i figured out how to make those little tiny fine lines on beads.

Photobucket

they are too impossibly thin and evenly straight to have been drawn on with a stringer. i finally realized they were applied like frit, that they are hair thin hand pulled stringers, broken into short lengths, and pressed into the bead.

Photobucket

when i announced it to some fellow beaders they were all like... "i knew that..." so, when i was asking about it why didn't anyone tell me how it was done?

Photobucket

i don't like crafty secrets.
if i make something and you want to know how it's done, just ask me. i will be glad to share any, and all, of the beady knowledge i have. i'd rather be generously creative than competitive.
