COMMENT

Using smaller size of crystal or other beads will result in a smaller sized lamp that can be used as charm for necklace. While slightly bigger sized beads can be used to make bigger sized children toy. You can always use your creativity to make it something uniquely different. Observations or suggestions are welcomed!

HAPPY BEADING!
