I seem to be breaking records everywhere this month. I've created another Beaded Ornament, the second one this year. I usually only manage to get one pattern a year done.
This one is a six pointed star made with Czech seed beads, 3mm bugles and 4mm Swarovski Crystal bicones. The sparkle provided by the bicones is fantastic in real life but it's hard to capture in a picture without getting a glare.
I used Miyuki bugle beads because they are nice and smooth and you don't have to worry about sharp edges cutting the thread. You may not be able to get them at your local bead shop, but do a search on line. Many online stores carry them.
Of course the pattern is listed at The Bead Coop. Just select The Bead Doodler in the drop down designer window in the search box. It's pattern #19684
