What are you most proud of? ...that my mom was absolutely delighted by this piece. You don't wear over 2,000 beads to stay warm or match jeans, it is simply for the luxury of it. My mom never really allowed herself any luxuries, so I was thrilled to make this for her.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use the crochet hook method of beading on knitting. It is so much easier and precise. I took a class from Judy Pascale and she passed on a little helpful trick - fill a small bowl with rice and use it to hold your super fine crochet hooks pre-loaded with beads so that you don't have to stop to pick up a single bead every other stitch. That can get old on a project with over 2000 of them.

So simply elegant. Just goes to show that the beauty can be in the workmanship, not just all the fancy stitches. Well done.
