Blow out!

This is what a blown out bead looks like....I pressed it totally flat and elongated it , but somehow I actually still like it, it's odd!
I am so used to working symetrical, and getting the shapes "perfect". On the otherhand when I see art which has wonky or natural shapes I love them , but I struggle to find it acceptable within myself to say that it is fine not to create symmetrical shapes! I think I fear the critisism of people thinking "look she can't create a "perfect" shape!
What do you guys think ? 18.7 cm long

I love it Astrid and like you, I too enjoy looking at things that are a little left center but struggle to accept things I make when they are a little wonky - even intentionally :) Keep creating your beautiful beads whatever shape they may turn out xo

Thanks Bobbie, and I am off now to sandblast the design on the other bead, so come a look later :)
