Here are some detail shots of the ornament on the Instructions page and a
bit of detail from some of the other ornaments. Warning! I have not yet found
a good way to take pictures of these, so some of the photos have fuzzy areas:
||This is a close-up of the netted ornament seen on the instructions page.
There was a dance of purple lights in the golden-orange beads I used. Notice that
I've used amethyst Delicas to bring out that color.
||Fire and Ice: This ornament has a pearly finish in
a cream color. I used matte-finish silver-lined red beads with gold-plated cut beads
for the accents. The decorations are crystals and faceted roundels. At the
bottom are two, beautiful flower-shaped Austrian crystals. Delicious!
||Wine and Gold Go With Everything: Here is an example of
beading happily along and finding that I had made my netting too long. Never fear!
I used the same beads as you see for the accents to close up the netting from about
an inch from the bottom. Then I added a scalloped layer of horizontal netting to
make it even longer. Dangling everywhere are vintage faceted teardrops and tiny
teadrops. Very "Victorian."
||Pearlie: These cut beads surprised me. They
had an AB finish, but I didn't know until I took them off the hank that they were
translucent. The light that comes through them is a wonderful blue, the color of the
summer sky. I used fresh water pearl "pillows" as the accents and created
a loopy fring around the bottom that is reminiscent of the fringe on old beaded purses.
