Hey all,

  I wrote my first beading article for The Bead Bugle. I would love to have honest opinions about it. If you would like to read it, this is the link:

Thanks for the kudos. I wanted the article to cover as many bases as I could think up. I meet a lot of people at gem shows who have had problems with their designs falling apart, just wanted to help out.

The descriptive language you use in the first paragraph to describe a project breaking is very effective.  It really appeals to the senses and captures your audience -- traits of any quality writing!

I found the rest of the information very helpful as well.  Thanks for sharing  Smiley

eacargal ,

   Thanks for the compliment. Especially the quality writing part. That gave me a little smile. I was looking to hook the readers with the opening and engage them enough to read through the whole article. I also wanted the end of the article to reference the opening to provide a sense of closure to the piece.
