Chop Index

There are other things to do with chop than make Natasha beads. There are different way of layering chop, dealing with making beads quickly with Natasha Logs, techniques with compression and theme building with cane design.

11-08-09: New Chop Index. Examples of the chop and toss technique 2005 to the present. The page was formerly named chop/2005/index.
There seemed to be a need for a couple of different sections. The Chop Index will have the following two:
The Chop Bead Index Starting from chopping up scraps to making layered chop. The whole process is shown. Three years of scraps and trim are transformed in this section.
The Chop Natasha Index: The How-To on doing layered beads; tips on Do Not twist but rather Compress; Natasha Logs from which many beads can be sliced and mini Natasha Bead tips.
