Beaded Reversible Triangles

Yesterday I took a class at my local bead shop on reversible triangles. I have to say that the tutor was one of the best I've ever had and her instructions were absolutely fantastic so imagine my surprise when I found out that a) she's only been beading for about 3 years and b) it was her first time teaching!

The first thing she had us do was a sample to learn the technique and we were advised to use 3 colours and do stripes so I did and here's how mine turned out.

I was one of the few that finished the sample so I made a start on my first one for the necklace I'm going to do.

Here's how it was at the end of the day

And half done

This is with one half finished and the other half done upto the ridge

And here it is finished.

This will be the centre focal triangle of the necklace. The plan is start off with solid blue ones and gradually add in the crystal as I go up but all the back's will be in crystal. Clear as mud right :) don't worry I'll be sharing pics as I finish each one so that should help
