2 Years ago when I went to the Bead and Button Show I took a class called Hoity Toity by Shelley Nybakke. It was the absolute worst class I have ever been in. One of the prerequestest for the class was that you know how to do Right Angle Weave. A lady sat next to me who had never done it before. So...guess who ended up having to help her? Me! She would ask the teacher a question and she would come over for one minute and then walk away. This poor lady had no clue.
I went to the show to learn new techniques and projects...not to have to teach someone while I was there. To make matters worse the teacher sat and talked about her ex husband the whole time and how they were getting divorced. All in all, it was just a bad experience. It was supposed to be an all day class but at lunch I left and didn't come back. I paid over $300.00 to take the class and it was a total waste of money. I'm not ragging on the teacher because we all can have a bad day but the whole experience for me was just bad.
I got 3 circle components done in class and haven't touched it since. Last night I found the pattern and kit and decided to sit and work on them for awhile.It was nice just to sit and work on something for myself. I ended up making two more components and can't decide if I want to continue and make the necklace or if I just want to stop and make it into a bracelet. The piece is pretty cool because one side is crystals and the other side is pearls so you can wear it two ways. The more I sit and look at it the more I think it may become a bracelet. What do you think? Continue on or stay as a bracelet?
