I was still enjoying the lentil shape and so for these, I just rolled some plain lentils and arranged the tiny bits of clay in a floral design down the center of each bead. I also found and old post which shows other versions of how I incorporated a technique into my own work.
This is what I want for my students. Yes, you can make exact copies of what I teach (and sell them too!) in my workshops. But I'm betting that you won't :-)
