Hey craftsters I finally got my digital camera so I'm posting all my crafty goodness. 

This is somewhat a beaded shawl for a basic ornament, it just goes over the top and whalah!

Comments greatly appreciated!

Wow, that's really lovely!  It could fit in so many decors, just by changing the colors!
I don't know where you beaders and embroiderererers find the patience!
Great job!

...so believe when I say Im no better than you, except when I craft so I guess it aint true.

that's so cool.  What i'm really wondering though, is if this sort of thing is possible on a larger scale to go over a globe light in a room....hmmmm.  Would you have to use bigger beads, or just more of them?

That's quite lovely - very classy.  Nicely done as well.  Where did you get the idea/pattern?

sassette: Thanks so much! I made another one in purple and gold, very royal looking.  Thanks for the comments Smiley

gluey:  I'm sure it's possible.. I've never tried though.  You could use bigger beads, but you would need a ton more than this project in either case.  Post pics if it turns out!

positron: Thank you, I took a class at a beading shop and changed it around a little to make it my own.

Thats very nice!  I'm just getting into seed beads, so I hope to learn how to do this before Christmas.  Be careful how many people you show this to, as you will end up making a ton of them as gifts!! Cheesy

This ornament is lovely!

I have a book called "The New Beadwork" and some of the projects are simply amazing.  Installation pieces in HUGE scale; curtains cascading down staircases, made entirely of small seed beads.  I'm sure that a similar thing could be created for a globe lamp, even of the small seed beads.  It'd just take a lot of patience and a lot of beads.  (And some fiddling with the pattern, but not much.)
