This picture shows the beading on top the crochet clusters. I have a lot to learn about beading, but it is so fun that I look forward to learning! I like adding beads to crochet rather than crocheting them in to the work.I feel I have more choices with beading patterns this way...besides the creative and fun aspect of it. Of course, I am referring to jewelry designs and small motifs.
This is the true color of the beads, but the picture is blurry. I LOVE the color. It is so magical.
I was able to scan the back to show the beading clearer. Funny thing...I didn't mark the holes of the paua shell to insert the memory wire. Good grief!! I can also see where I miscounted beads...argh!!! Well, I'm not sure what kind of bracelet to make with it...tatted or memory wire? I will probably go with memory wire though. I have some pearls that I think would look lovely with this design.
