    Fantastic! It’s a difficult decision, but the top 2 are my favorites.

    I love Kirsten’s pieces, would love to try my hand at her bead cap tutorial…. what did you use to cut the metal?

    It’s Keirsten, autocorrect!

    Eeka,I used small metal sheers from Home Depot, then a lot of filling, it was a long process for me, wish I had a better dapping block, it is now on my wish list :D
