What are you most proud of? Making something with your own hands gives a person satisfaction, no matter how small the items. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Gather the pods and clean them of their seeds and fluff. Gather all the materials, putting beads of like colors together in aluminum pie tins works good. You can use a tacky glue. Pour it out in a plastic lid, and use a toothpick to help apply glue to pod in the places you want the jewels. Then use it to apply it to edge of pod for the trim . Be patient and work slow.
