New Netted Ornament Gift




I did this one in one day- that is a record for me! About 4 hours ofwork, and that included alot of cursing and pulling out of thread.Netting always has to be adjusted to the size of what you are doing.The body is flat netting, which is done off the ball, until it can bestretched around the ball. Then you add the last row, adding itbetween the first and last, which means instead of having the sevenbeads between the V's, I would put on three, catch the center bead ofthe V on the first row, then add three more, using the center bead ofthat first row's Vs as my middle bead on the last row's V's.Clear as muck??LOL!Anyhow, it has clear 6mm Swars, and some nice AB Crystal drops I foundin Canada, and will make a nice Christmas present. The gold beads areCzech, and I don't know the finish/style, but they look hex, butaren't. Love the sparkle.Now, on to finish two more in silver, then to do my COPS ball.After work, that is.
