Today i finally started (and finished!) a beaded strawberry from an article in bead magazine (www.beadmagazine.co.uk). So, after many hours, lots of beads rolling under the table, and many injuries (due to me accidently jabbing a beading needle in my finger), here is the finished strawberry.
Now, you might be thinking, 'That's not too bad for a first attempt'. Just wait til you see the other side.
Yes, that is a very lopsided strawberry. If it had been a real strawberry, it would have definitely been soggy. The start of it went a bit wonky. And the middle. And, if i'm honest, the end as well. I still like it though.
