Second Bead Embroidery Collar Finished




I have finally finished my second bead embroidery collar and got around to taking some photos. I don't think the photos are that great but they will have to do for now. I really liked making this one and learned a lot along the way. I think my next project will be a bit more simple but I do know there are many more of these collars in my future.

Bead Embroidery Collar

Moving along, although not to quickly. I really wanted to paint yesterday and I do again today - last night I watched some of my favorite TV shows (bones, fringe, mentalist) so I didn't get much beading done. Sometimes you need time off to do other things. This is a major project and I want it to be great - so I am willing to take my time and just let it flow.

Bead Embroidery Collar - A Little More Work

I was up in PA this weekend so I really didn't have much time to work on the newest collar. I have done a bit of beading on both sides but not a lot of progress - I hope to get going on this again tonight. I am not in a hurry to finish this necklace - I am learning a lot and I am enjoying the process. It is coming together nicely but I have done quite a bit of ripping out - I am using a very limited color scheme with this one and I like the look - I was afraid it might get patchy but I don't think that is the case.
