    What is the material the bead is made of, and what tools are you for crafting?

    Very cool.

    Gus is made from Burmese Blackwood. It's a hardwood. I use a rotary tool with a million different sanding and cutting bits.

    That is one of the best quotes of the show. Is that bead supposed to be Gus?

    "Now, say my name."

    Nice Gus bead. I was inspired by your making of thread and ordered some supplies from Bear Tooth Woods. My box showed up today and I tried my hand at making my first bead. Nothing too complex, just a simple little Tiki inspired guy. I've got a bunch of other, more complicated designs on paper that I plan on making once I get a bit more practice under my belt. But here's my first one:

    Acrylic. I'm using pen turning blanks as they are cheap, come in a huge assortment of colors, and are pretty easy to shape. Only downside is they smell pretty bad when working them. I don't know what color this bead was, as I picked up a grab bag of random cut-offs with my order to practice on and this piece came out of that bag.

    I really loved clay sculpting in high school but never tried any serious carving. I may have to give this a try sometime.

    The Smurf is curly Maple dyed blue. The green ones are also curly Maple only dyed green. I have purple, natural, teal, and bronze (though it looks dark brown to me). You get the natural wood feel and depth with a splash of color. It's pretty cool.
