I took several suggestions from you all on my latest attempt at crocheting with beads (oh yuck...I was typing too fast, and it came out "crocheting with meat." Oh PLEASE!! That is when you know you've taken your craft too far!).
On my next trip to Hobby Lobby, I found some beads that I thought worked really well with what I had. However, once I put them together, I didn't like the combination with the thread. I also added a strand of gold thread to it, only to learn that my new beads had a very tiny little hole...
Here's the result:
Can you see why it has taken me several days to post this? I was a little disappointed.
Today, I picked up some actual gold beads (smaller than these golden-yellow ones) to see if it gives me more of the look I want. Of course, that was after I double-checked that the hole was larger on them. =D
Suggestion time again! Should I create this same look but swap in the gold beads? Or should I put the gold in between the decorative ones? Should I try something completely different?
I welcome your suggestions and advice!
