Am working on the front claws of the crab and I fear I have gotten too fancy. I looked at some real crabs, it is the season here, and I think I got sensory overload. I have so many ideas of how to do this leg/claw that I am tempted to try something else on the second one. I suppose they should be somewhat alike - always a problem for me.Now that I see the photograph, I do like the pattern at the top. The combination of a ruby red 8 with three small amber beads inside of it does make a closer approximation of the actual color and is closer to the red jasper than anything in my bead box.
