What are you most proud of? I'm proud of the entire piece. This was my practice piece and I've since bought another on Ebay that I just love and hope to turn into something beautiful. I'm not a fan of handwork, but a trip to the bead shop with Cindy and the rest of the students may make me a convert after all. Cindy would add at least 1000 more beads to this little piece, we call that OCD (obsessive Cindy disorder), and I will probably do that over time. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Find a little treasure you have from a family member, a garage sale or online and try this. It can be a small linen napkin or hankie. Come up with a design that complements and enhances the work that's already been done and enjoy!
