This is it. This is the bead that sent me on my mini creative sabbatical. I should have known better. Going orange is a sure-fire way for me to be pushed over the edge. What was I thinking???
Do you know how many layers of dot application are on this bead? In the larger dots alone there are EIGHT dots that were placed (not so well) and melted flat inbetween. Those smaller aqua dots? Don’t even ask because there is a lot more going on there that didn’t translate well and then the green dots that are about 3 layers themselves.
Ug-adocious I tell you. And you know what makes it worse? I did it all around this bead so it’s double the work and double the ug-factor. Ugly. Ugh. Yick Yick Yick. I hate it when I waste this much time on a bead. But I guess in the grand scheme of things it tells me…go back to what you know grasshopper. You ventured into the unknown and it was good. But you went too far. Go back to your roots and try again another time.
Maybe etching. Or fusing it. Or painting over it. Or just throw it out the dag-blasted window.
