What are you most proud of? I think it will be when I learn to white-balance my camera and can photograph purple, but stay tuned:)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure you set up someplace comfortable where you're not hunched over. I also second the advice about using good light. This technique seems to be very forgiving. I have some beads in my stash that don't meet my standards for regular beadwork but I think they'd be fine surrounded by fiber. Watch out for sharp edges on beads though.

This is beautiful! The texture and color pattern from thr project are very peaceful and in my eyes retro. As a child of the 970's I would like to say, "more power to you" and wonderful work.

It is a fun class! You have done so many things already, and so much variety. I love the way you're mixing things up. They're all great, but I have a special love for Miyuki 401FR, which I think you used for your cube bracelet?
