My students ran the gamut: one had far more experience with bead embroidery than myself, while others were just getting into the idea of working with seed beads at all. When asked - everyone's primary reason for joining the class was 'because it looked fun'.
I snapped photos towards the end of class, and my students said I could share. I love how different they all are.
