What are you most proud of? I have made many of these pieces, round, square, diamond...and love them all. I have sold quite a few as well. I enjoy getting to wear something that I made myself, and get asked often where I got them.
What advice would you give someone starting this project? First, make sure you use at least a half a foot more thread than called for. This allows you to rethread to reinforce the pieces. Make each piece separate (focal and band). The band is the only part that is liable to break. If you make them in two separate pieces, you save yourself time on band repair if it does happen to break. Which is unlikely, but not impossible. Don't give up! The beads are so small, and it takes 3-3.5 hours each to create. It's worth it. :)
