My Version




This is from the pattern Eidelweiss, on the cover of the October 09 Beadwork. It looks fine flat, but hangs strangely when worn, so I made it hang lengthwise, and added a large carnelian drop and more pearls to go through a hole in the focal beadwork. It is too much work to tear apart, but that was my first impression after finishing it...it may still happen, but will try to enjoy it first. It is comfortable.

Beautiful work!

Thank you for your offer btw, another online bead friend has already sent two so I don't want to over use offers of help to try new things. I appreciate you (and the offer) more than you can imagine :)

I exclaimed "Oh, Beautiful!" when I saw this. Your interpretation of htat pattern is fantastic. I came to your site via Kassie's. I don't know if you remember but I went on a couple bead retreats with you guys a couple years back before moving back to Michigan. Those are some of my fondest memories of North Carolina.
