In the Nov/Dec issue of Beadwork, there is a ring pattern by Nancy Cain. Finding the large focal triangular crystal was a real challenge so the idea of making it was dropped until September of this year when finishing things became an obsession. Pamela at Bello Modo was a great help not only does she carry the the crystal she has a great selection of 23mm trivolis. She then helped me with the choice of beads to make the ring. Unlike fabric you really have to see the beads to get it right. It is gorgeous !
i am really pleased with it but I need more practice. Tightening the thread is hard as my right hand is not very strong and good at gripping the thread but it is really satisfying to make these little baubles and wear them. So now to the next one.
