Just a quick update on the crochet slider class: I worked up a sample in size 11's, with "e" beads for the textured section in the middle. I think this version will work better for the class. The "e" beads were much easier to work with, and still give a nice visual texture.
I removed the tubing from this slider bead, to allow the cord to fit through the center. The work still has a pretty firm feel to it, and is holding it's tubular shape well. It is actually curving with the neklace better than the version with the tube still inside. I plan on keeping this in mind.
