Me, too!! Maybe not today, but someday soon! I am thinking of making it in a cute pink brocade I have in my stash.  I don't remember these the first time around (my mom doesn't wear jewelry) so they are new to me Smiley

Those look very nice, and I looked up the ones in Delias, too, and they don't look bad at all.  It must just be my bad associations that influenced my ideas about them.

clarejosephine - you seriously rock for posting this!  I made my own version tonight using kimono silk fabric.  I ran out of the little silver beads that I wanted to use - so I just made it up with others for this prototype.  I'm off to hunt for suitable silver beads tomorrow for more!

Please pardon what little you can see of me - it is late, I look like death (I've been feeling ill).

i made one too, but I think I'll try another and put a little more thought into it because I'm not all that fond of this one.



pucchimaiko - as always, your's looks amazing.

ragadyanne400 oooh...I really like the concept of yours! I might give that a go also.  Personally, I feel that it would probably work a little bit better with slightly smaller beads - or, with separating beads between the big ones.  Regardless - I think yours looks cute - I cannot wait to see your next one!  I know I'm going crazy making more  Grin

Surfergrl311 Aw thank you!  the length of my tube before sewing was 20" x 1.75" and the beads I use are about just under 1/2 inch wide.  I used 19 beads - but if I had of had all the small silver separators - I probably would have ended up using 21-23 beads insted - some of the silver separators are quite large.  Tonight - I'm going to be purchasing a bunch of smaller separators to make more Smiley
