Hi, all:

I've been lurking since joining and enjoying all the tips, opinions and conversations. I'm a new beader and have made just a few simple pieces of jewelry.

The project I want to work on next is a beaded doll - like the ones on Ronda Kivett's site.

I know Japanese and Czech beads seem to be the kind of seed beads that are the best, but does anyone have any experience working with Mill Hill glass seed beads? Are they hard to work with and are they considered "quality" beads?

Thanks for any feedback!

Betsy

I have worked with Mill Hill beads and I think they are over-priced

and the consistancy leaves much to be desired.

Because I prefer the texture of seed beads rather than Delicas. I

use Fire Mountain's "Dynomites". The price is right and there is

very little waste.

Thanks, Gail. I'll check out the Dynomites - Mill Hill does seem

overpriced and I've noticed there are quite a few irregular ones, but

I wasn't sure if every brand was that way. Thank you for your insight!
