i worked on mostly beading last night, and adding in more gold trim. i decided that i would test out some options for the beads on the queen's dress.
and they suck.
they just plain suck.
avert your eyes from the terror that was formerly known as a bodice. don't get me wrong, j'adore swarovski beads. but the color is wrong. the size is wrong. and i went to bed wanting to poke my eyes out.
now let's turn our attention to the crown, the inside of the jessicas and the scepter. pas mal?
the "rubies" came from an sj designs christmas cocktail mix that i had leftover from another project. they're nice and shiny and i like the funky shape.
started on the trim under her bodice and around the skirt. it's starting to come together!
so, after another emergency bead trip this weekend and perhaps a big girl drink, i will continue the saga that is my stocking.
