Iris Pewter & Garnet Set

Post by Bead Queen - Carol on Thu 22 Sep 2011 - 9:33

Well i was up half the night finishing this as my mum needed it for today (a gift from her to her friend for her friends birthday) I had started it the other day as i had some garnet swarovski crystals left in my stash from a few years ago, decided i needed more garnet swaro's half way through, when they came yesterday, they were lighter than the original ones i had! Arrrrghhhhh! Cue foot stomping and spitting my dummy out! lol.

I thought swaro colours stayed the same??

Anyhow, i had to start again from scratch so i came up with this design, with a little help from a tutorial by Pat Duerfeldt for the zigzag weave and some RAW Weave i made up as i went along. Combined the two and hey presto!

Then, as i was still annoyed 8hrs later when i finished it (at 2am this morning), hubby very kindly got out his super dupa camera and took some pics of it for me (when i grow up, i want to be able to use a good camera)

Lets hope my mum is happy with it now, we all know my mum can be a bit unforgiving!

So here it is... Drum roll please....................





and here's a close up of the necklace for you to drool over the lovely garnet swarovski's ;)

No, I'm not putting my 'to do' list here, that would be far to organised, PLUS I would have to keep it up to date  Laughing

When I saw it first I thought it was black, but then I saw your close ups and went back and could see the garnet colour on some of them, its a lovely set.
