What a hoot! A side by side comparison of a work in progress. I began making beads in 2009. I loved making birds on my beads. At my nephew's BBQ last summer - August - I proudly displayed my first bird bead. Attendees were impressed that I was able to put a bird on a bead and politely ahh'd and oogled what I had accomplished. This year my bird beads have taken on a new appearance and I will, once again, be so proud to display my present bird beads. Hopefully, they will smile and oogle at the whimsy and progress I've made in a year. Ah, the plight of a glass bead maker in the Pacific Northwest.
Enjoy - I love making bird beads.
