BEADS! Many thanks to Jo for hosting the People’s Choice Blog Hop! Oh man, I had no witches to show you last month, I don’t think I even have one pattern with witches on it! But beads I have in spades! I love designs that use some beads to add sparkle, dimension, and interest to the project. They just give a richness and make the final piece look really fancy and jewel-like.
First of all, and of course this feels like a recent post, doesn’t it, because I did just share a bunch of ornaments lately, I have all my many Mill Hill beaded ornaments! I took a fresh picture for you so you don’t have to see the same arrangement again!
And then of course there is Just Nan. Ms. Nan is so good about adding just enough beads to all of her projects. I really enjoy that.
The Victoria Sampler also sprinkle beads over their designs, both large and small…like the Biscornuments I showed very recently, and these much larger Heirloom projects. Fancy!
Finally for this post, I have 2 large biscornus with beads, one with a few which I added myself in the final construction (Tudor Berry by Erica Michaels which I finished as a biscornu) and one resplendent with many, many beads (Faby Reilly’s Snowflake biscornu)
I’m sure I have even more things with beads which I will think of after I post this! I’m sure I’ll have other opportunities to share them. For now, to see more lovely beads, head back to Jo’s to see the others’ work!
