We convened for a group beading day, and tried to follow the condensed instructions in the magazine. It doesn't get any better than having the designer at the beading table with you! I like to have a longer thread, which for this piece, I now know I need to reconsider. My length of fireline kept catching on all the other beads, the further into the piece I got. Yes, Eileen, I'm listening... I need shorter thread. Thank you for this incredible design. LOVE IT!
And, as you'll see below, I altered the design ever so slightly and added in two 4mm fire polish on my first row, when it was supposed to be one, so I went with that and alternated every fourth row with the two, plus used a different color.
