Manda is an awesome teacher, and you will learn things from her that you can take and apply to your own style of beads as well. If you can get along, do so, as you won't be disappointed!

I don't like them either. I think it's the fact they don't have a head that puts me off. Occasionally I see some with a head, and I like them a bit better. Still have no urge to make one though!!

I also use it sometimes if I am working with raised dots, as I find that Zephyr dots tend to melt in too easily due to its softness unless you are very careful.
