I finally finished my new sea urchin.
It's so nice to be able to tick something off my "to-do list" that's been there for nearly 7 years!
In the end I bit the bullet and cut up what I had beaded and re-made it using size 11 seed beads, and I'm much happier with it.
I now have three of these urchins so it looks like a little growing family which is nice.
I've also been busy coming up with some quick and easy projects for future issues of Bead. I love playing with wirework and stringing as you actually feel as though you're getting somewhere!
