I cannot explain why but I am sure that threading seed beads and making beautiful things is therapeutical for me, and I need that, so I decided to take part in International Beading Week.
What is that, you ask.
International Beading Week is an annual event organised by The Beadworkers Guild in the UK. This event runs from 25th July (today) until 2nd August.
I am learning to make some beaded beads following a tutorial by Katie Dean. They look like Portuguese 'pastéis de bacalhau'. See for yourself in here.
I have only managed to make the first bead so far.
Two days ago, when I couldn't figure out what to do next, it looked like this.

Today, I have managed to finish my first bead. It has a mistake but I am happy I was able to complete it.

Tomorrow, I will make another one, and another one, and so on.
Stay safe and take care.
