Seeds vs. Delicas

I have a few projects that I've been working on a bit at a time using old uneven seed beads. Since I began working with Delica beads, the contrast when I go back to the older projects is really noticeable. I think that they both have their strengths, though. It's much harder to express texture with the uniform Delicas, while adding fat beads and skinny with the ordinary seed beads gives all sorts of flexibility.

I guess I just love all kinds of beads. This surprises no one, right?

IT doesn't surpise me. I'm the same way. It depends on the project, but as often as not I use both in the same project:)
