wow! this is amazing. I tried my hand at beading like this, only not nearly as complex. I think i ended up scrapping the project 10 beads into it. It really looks like a labor of love.
ps my daughter is flipping out over it too. not, flipping, but running around the room screaming "Ariel! it's Ariel on your computer! Let's look at that picture! Click on it!!!!!" She is a huge ariel fan, if you couldn't tell.
really? she likes Ariel? I couldn't tell.
I'd been wanting to get into more complex beading, but I kept giving up too until I found this awesome book. it's called "The Encyclopedia of Beading Techniques". they make everything very easy to understand. so check it out if you are interested in beading. it's very helpful. even more so than the Dummies and Idiots books that I bought.
