Hi Deborah! Thanks so much for watching! I don’t have the large size of the silver ones available currently online, but here is a link to a slightly smaller version https://christinewhitestyle.com/collections/loose-beads/products/african-fine-silver-saucers-pack-of-4
Deborah Cost great question! I use plated brass-based non tarnish craft wire and I believe it is considered half- hard. If you were using sterling or gold-filled wire you could use half-hard wire in its place. Here’s the link to my favorite 20 gauge wire:
Thank you so much for watching!! 😊📿
You know I love designs that use up odd beads! What I think might work well here is stone or not perfect beads. I sometimes buy stone beads on a string and the odd one is less than perfect, similarly with other beads. The cage may distract from that, and the casualness of the design may actually work with the flaw.
This article has been motivated by a response I gave to a problem raised on an Oracle developer forum. Our requirement is to produce a report that details customer spending for each month of the year. Our database only records actual spend, so for any given month, data for dormant or idle customers will have to be generated.
First, well create a mock CUSTOMER_ORDERS table with sparse data to represent customer spending. To keep the example simple, well denormalise the customer name onto the orders table.
a sparse report.
With our customer orders data as sparse as it is, a monthly report for purchases by customer would look as follows.
adding the missing months.
We can see from the data that we are missing most months of the year for our two customers. Remember that our requirement is to show a report for every month in 2004 for every customer. First we will build a "time dimension" set (using subquery factoring) and outer join it to our orders table.
We can see that this hasnt quite worked. We have the zero sums and the year-months, but we are missing customer names. This is because we outer joined to CUSTOMER_ORDERS on the year-months, so any customer columns would show as NULL for deficient rows. Until PARTITION OUTER JOIN appeared in Oracle 10g, we couldnt "invent" data easily , though the next section shows that it is possible in prior versions.
data-densification without partition outer join.
