I decided to make strings of beads today in my home office. Here is a photo of a string of clay beads. I cut at every 7th bead. The marks on the cutting board align with each bead. This Helps speed up the work.
The video shows the stings stacking up.
Well that plate and one other full plate was a full days work. I'm going to try to get two more plates filled. I will probably work at home again tomorrow. I'll make more beads and then create the seven feathers for the shield here as well.
