I worked on my bugle bead necklace some more last night, and finally figured out how to attach all the pieces.
After I got everything attached and tried it on, I immediately saw the things I wanted to change, the main thing being that the fringe is way too short. I think I will retry this piece, and see if I can make it look like the beaded ball is a slide.
I like showing you my misses as much as my hits - it's like letting to peek into my brain. I hope it isn't too scary!
