Today I created some Beaded Crystal Wreaths based on a design by Susan Spatone which I found published at Crystal Wreath.
I didn't have the beads that Susan used in my stash so I made do with what I had - some tear drop beads instead. I made 2 colour variations - White/Pearl and Clear (or Aurora).
I also then made a version using a mix of white and clear Glass Chips (that's what I call them anyway).
Both are on 20 guage beading wire and have a gold ribbon bow which I tied on with the gold cording which I used to create the loop to hang it with. Very simple to make and great for the kids though watch the youngsters with the small beads as they are quite tempting to push into strange and unusal places.
I also then made a Pacifica version to reflect our heritage and Summer Christmas here in New Zealand.
It is made of shells, seed beads and metal charms though is otherwise constructed in a similar manner to the above wreaths.
