Damnit! Now I have another book to add to the order I'm about to place to amazon! I'm a beader - I was on the very brink of opening a bead shop two years ago when life interceded quite horribly. Since then I've taken a step back from it, but still love working with them making stitch markers and so on, and I'm just orderering some books on French Beaded Flowers to brush up on my skills - I'm making the bouquet for my wedding! Inspiration will hopefully follow!

As for the original question - glass beads quickly warm to your body temperature, and make good insulation - it may be a little chilly as soon as you wrap it, but give it five minutes and you'll be fine :-)
