Double Helix Woes

Well, I’m a bit frustrated with the Double Helix Gaia. I made something like 15 beads today and none of them turned out. I don’t know what to do. I’ve tried everything I could think of. I ‘ve searched the Internet for advice and tried to follow that advice, but still get nothing. Wow, I sound really dumb and whiny. Oh well. I’m a little dispirited.

I’m thinking about bringing some of the DH to the workshop I’m going to on Sat. Flame Tree Glass doesn’t sell DH but they might know something about it. I could always take it and leave it in my car just in case.

Last night as I was falling asleep I was thinking about how far I have yet to go as far as my skill with glass goes. I have a long long way to go. And even if I do get really good with glass, I don’t know if I’m creative enough to really make a career out of this hobby. I’m filled with self doubt.

I think I might invest some energy in stripe beads tomorrow. They’re fairly easy to do and it will give me a lift to have some beads turn out.
