I've been having a lot of fun beading more caffeine molecules. I pulled out all my oft-neglected coffee-colored seed beads to put these ones together. Here's a nice french roast:
This one's more of a latte. As you can see in the photo, it hangs at a slight angle when worn as a pendant.
It keeps its form when pressed flat:
But it's also somewhat flexible:
Actually, depending on the beads used, some of these will lie completely flat when pressed, but some still have a slight curve. I think I may be able to get a more uniform result with a change in thread path, so I need to tinker with that a bit more.
This one has more of a carmel flavor, don't you think?
