Default The Uglies

When I'm "trying" a new technique or colour combination, or just lacking in artistic flare, the result can be an ugly or really fugly bead. What do you do with these experiments?

Beads of Courage. You may not like it but there is a kid with cancer treatments somewhere that would think they were great.

And I like the bead you showed. To me it's not ugly or fugly!

Thanks for the idea. The head was from a series of angels. The eyes on this one kind of creep me out.

Agree, B O C kids are thrilled with having a variety, so as long as they fit the guidelines, send them in!

Art is in the eyes of the beholder. I save the ones I don’t like because I can look back at how much I’ve improved. My dots are no longer drunk and my beads are even and round. Also the bead holes no longer pucker.
