beaded ornament

I only have one photo to show you of the beaded ornament I made.  I took about 10 but they all came out really badly.


This is the Georgian Bauble from Spellbound Festive Beading by Julie Ashford.  I've had the book a while, but always thought it was a bit hard, now was the time to try.  The bauble is 40mm so it's pretty small. I used size 11/0 and size 8/0 seed beads along with bugle beads and crystals.  

I'm really chuffed with how it turned out and it looks great on our over-crowded Christmas tree!

Speaking of which, I'd like to wish all of you who celebrate it a very merry Christmas and a happy new year to all!

I'll be back on Boxing Day with more crafty stuff.

Merry Christmas to you too Wendy. I can imagine that your New Year's list of crafts to try in 2015 is a mile long already? I hope you enjoy a few days of rest and relaxation before the new year starts.
