What are you most proud of? as much as I tried to use the snakes they kept drying out or turning to moosh -so finding an alternative way to join the beads on the sides was really hard- makes you have a new respect for hollow beads that are made by others-

What advice would you give someone starting this project? take your time and just because the first one or two or three do not work do not give up- kind of like all things in life- keep trying, keep practiceing, keep learning, keep making mistakes, and at some point you will find that you are capable of something- :) if anything at all- endurance! :)

I would not have thought this shape to be difficult, but glad YOU experimented and it now convinces me to try rounds or ovals for the first time! But great job!!
