Well the bead along is officially finished! Here are some pictures of the last projects I received. If you haven't finished the project yet be sure to send me a picture when your finished so I can get it posted. A big THANK YOU to all who participated. I know a lot of you who attempted the projects learned some new techniques and are getting better at reading patterns. Since Grayson is due in August it may be awhile before we start another bead along but rest assured that I will be looking for a great book in the near future.
Jan Crosthwaite - Wallasey U.K.
I used 8/0 silver lined gold seed beads for the peyote band and 11/0 silver lined crystal seed beeds for the netting.
The colors I used for this project are black and raspberry seedbeeds.
Pat Jones - Huntsville AL
Here are my earrings, size 11 and 15 white seed beads with crystal volcano foil back chatons. You can't see it on the back...but I also used a light purple seed bead with the white so I could keep track of the increases. For me, this one was a definite challenge!
Kelly Dale - Forest City NC
I used 11/0 Duracoat Galvanized Egg Plant. Instead of using a different color seed bead I added a 3mm Swarovski Crystal.
