Autocorrect and beading can have some funny outcomes sometimes. Our Editorial Assistant Lora Groszkiewicz recently noticed, when she would type in bicone, as in bicone crystal, it would automatically change to bacon! Unfortunately, she didn’t notice the change right away, and when working on the online resource guide, bacon went out in place of bicone for one of the projects.
An observant contributor noticed the unusual item listed and questioned Lora. After a laugh and a few bacon jokes, everything was corrected. So, if you ever see bacon in the supply list, it’s not a new bead shape or new beading technique, just autocorrect having a little fun.
