A Very Fancy Donut

I have finished the project for the French online beading class I was taking. I am very proud of myself too. It was a challenging project.

A Fancy Beaded Donut

It uses a lot of different beads. Seeds beads in size 15, 11 (in 2 colors), 8, Delicas (in 2 colors), and 3mm bi-cone crystals.

Not the best photos I've ever taken either. It's super sparkly and was hard to photograph.

Lets face facts. Pics, no matter how good, would never do this justice. It is AWESOME in real life. Now, for a necklace that will properly show it off.......hmm, I'll have to think about that.

Thank you to Laure for the class. Your generosity is unmeasured. Especially in taking on a student who doesn't speak the language.

Thanks also go to Google Translator. Couldn't have done it without you.

Live long and prosper. \\//

  3. Good Morning,

    This is quite nice and I am sure that Laure would be thrilled to have a picture of what you have achieved!
