Stringing the beads on wire did not work well. When layed on the side, the beads bowed down .. did not hold taught enough. So, after a bit of hemming and hawing, took the strands off one by one, layed out and restrung on jewelry thread. Much better !I'm going to hang this one on the wall for a couple weeks; at least while I finish the other guitar. During that time, I'll decide if it needs something more, or if it is finished. At that time, I'll take front & back completion photos and whether this piece will be given away, sold, or remain on my wall.
