I want to make a three strand Swarovski pearl necklace (6mm, 8mm, 10mm) with the focal (center of the necklace) of a hand blown carnival glass heart that is approx. 2" long by 1.5" wide. The holes in the sides of the glass heart will not permit strands of pearls to go through. Is there a way to start the pearl strands from the center glass heart? What do you suggest I use to bead the pearls on? I want the individual pearl strands to twist around each other. Thank you.

I am beading a bracelet that is odd count flat peyote (Delica size 11 beads). I am beading it by holding it in my fingers, but when I set it down flat on the table top, it is wavy on the edges. If I flatten the top, the bottom becomes wavy. If I flatten the bottom, the top becomes wavy. Doesn't matter if I use single needle or two needle. What am I doing wrong and can I fix it or should I take it all apart and start over and be careful not to do what?
