Having slept on this tutorial idea for a couple of nights, and based on yesterday’s test bead, I am going to do a tut for a medium sized (almost round) focal. My suspicions of a nice Terra sub were confirmed, although it changes the look of the bead a bit. It’s much sharper with an overall deeper chroma. Actually, I think I might like it better!! What do you guys think? I’d love your feedback!
The focal is 22mm hole to hole by 24mm diameter. Originally, my idea was to write instruction that yields a 14mm bead. After a bit of thought, I decided to go a bit larger because I believe that doing so will help provide more room for you to work until you get the hang of the beads design and construction. Once you get it down-pat, you can scale up or down and even make changes that incorporate your own spin or signature touch.
The photography for this project will start on Monday and I hope to have the tut ready in about a week or so.
