Finally, a technical success.
A pseudo-Pandora bead.
Sure, it's just a practice bead with copper instead of silver...
and I stupidly used the 'Q' instead of the 'O' stamp.
Apparently I need a stronger pair of glasses.
So what, the glass bead is atrociously ugly.
The big news is - it all worked.
I have so many exciting ideas for this, it's time to go make beads.
