Christmas Ornament

Finally a picture of some beading! I worked my fingers to the bone beading three of these ornaments for my colleagues in aqua, purple and pink. They loved their Christmas gifts!
As soon as I saw this ornament by Lora Groszkiewicz in the October 2009 Bead and Button Magazine I knew I had to give it a try. I used over 160 Swarovski crystals, Size 11 Japanese cylinder beads and Size 15 seed beads. The stitches used are netting, peyote stitch and fringe. Pretty isn't it?
