1. My First Beading Project

I'm starting small, here. Trying the easiest beading technique in the book, ladder stitch.

Hmm. That's quite neat and even. But it's only about 5mm wide. I like my jewellery to be small and delicate, but that just looks ridiculous.

OK, I'll double it up.

It still needs something.

That's better.

This took me about three hours, but the second leg took much less time than the first. Practice seems to cause rapid improvement here - I just hope it continues.

And I resolve to only take photos in natural light from now on.
