Who is this project for? Women

What materials did you use? Chenille yarn, glass seed beads, glass magatamas (the short variety), faceted fire-polished Czech glass rondelles.

What are you most proud of? Giving myself a little time to experiment with this. I'll switch it up in the future, but this piece was a great building block.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Consider using larger round seed beads than I did for the band. I used size 11/0s, because I didn't have anything larger in the color I wanted to use. However, I think 8/0s would create a more balanced look. Of course, if you change sizes, you'll need to experiment with the number of beads you stitch between each pair of warps. To find interesting Czech beads in designer finishes (I used 4mm by 7mm jade swirl celsian rondelles), I recommend searching Etsy.com.

This is so different from the others I have viewed! I love the natural tones and materials, but with a touch of elegance and a pop of color!
