In an attempt to find a new project I dipped into the April / May issue of Beadwork to find this. I simply could not get it to work by following the instructions, so I struck out on my own and figured out two ways to get something similar. All in all I found it very fiddly with at least ten attempts and samples to find bead sizes that worked together. The end result is very delicate and lacy - far too fussy the kind of women I normally hope to adorn. Looking at the necklaces I want to be a rebel and make something huge and gunky!

Got the official notice from the folks at the Beaded Earth Contest that I did not make the finalist list. Hmmmm. Again I am unable to work with the Interweave Inc. I guess we are not on the same wave-length.
