Blu asked if I was self taught or taken classes, well it's a bit of both. A few years ago I went to a class every Tuesday afternoon and learnt alot about basic beading techniques. Some were never covered so those I taught myself and I still go to classes now if the project interests me for instance I'm going to one in a week to make a Christmas tree and a couple of week safter that is 3D stars. The stitch used will be one I know but it's the how it's put together I'm going to learn.
A couple of comments also said about them needing varnishing so tomorrow when I post the next one I've finished I'll show you why it's needed
