Laura McCabe Class - UBB


It has taken just over a week, but I did it! I finished my Laura McCabe class project - The Ultimate Beaded Bead! It was a bit hard on the eyes and caused many curses when things went awry, but I was determined. Now I am thinking of the best kind of necklace to make for it to hang from. I am using a black ribbon choker but it is a bit too short. I might have to buy MORE BEADS to do it justice. Thinking of a spiral rope to complement the colours.

Im working on this project right now! I found it very difficult to make the rings. they came out warped. so i started doing them delica first and beading in towards the charlottes. that seems to be working. Your is beautiful! Congratulations on sticking with a McCabe until its finished!!

Yes, Althea, the rings were difficult. You need to get the tension just right - not so tight that the rings crack and break and not sloppy either. It took me a few goes to get it right.
