I'm so excited! I've just had someone show me the first earring they made from my Diamond Dreams tutorial; it's in the Bead and Button Forum, just scroll down until you see the photo of the blue and gold earring. It's beautiful!
It's one thing to write a tutorial, to think about other people using it, and try to explain things as best I can, and it's quite another to find out that it worked. It's very gratifying to actually see my design done by someone else, and to find out that the tutorial was easy to follow.
