I'm going to be a total thread hog today - there's three pictures of the bead I made in class this weekend, plus one of the most recent progress on Alhambra Garden.
The three pictures of the bead show both sides, plus a size comparison with my hand - this bead is *big*! Honestly, it's probably the largest bead I've ever made. The instructor calls this one "Galaxy" and I can see why. But I think it turned out well. It's always tough with class beads - inevitably don't do something right in the process of making the bead, and it doesn't look just the way it's supposed to - but its all part of the learning process. I would have liked to shape the bead a bit more - it's pretty close to being on centre, but the ends are slightly crooked.
It's been a while since I posted an Alhambra update too - it's definitley coming, if I can only do this much 4 more times, I should be close to being done :).
