Dear Sheri,
You're a gifted teacher - atop your many other gifts:  instructions that are clearly stated, patient help to anyone who calls out, and - most appreciated - always affirming the student.  To everyone you said, 'that's beautiful!' and you meant it.  So, we believed in ourselves...or, at least, tried to!
 
Once I got home, I could 'hear' what my piece was wanting.  I've named her "La Mer" - the sea - as if we're standing on the beach (naked pine needles) looking out toward the horizon.  I'm delighted that the matte beads DO sparkle when the light is just right - precisely what happens on the water, whatever the light source!  

This morning I went to the bead shop for a single, large white matte bead for the cord (and to show and tell!) but they are closed today and tomorrow.  "Flu Bug" the sign said.  Sad...
Enjoy a couple of snapshots.  Thank you for your generosity of spirit, sharing your infectious passion and beeswax!  I spruced up my piece from the first class I had with you a couple of years ago.  It has a respected place on my altar, as you can see.  Looks polished again!  
With love and admiration,

celeste
