This fairy is finally finished. I think I started her 6 years ago and at one point got so frustrated with mistakes that I tore almost all of the stitches out and put her away. However, now she is finished. I have never done a pattern with so many beads and crystal treasures. The result is beautiful. She will be for sale at my Etsy shop tonight.
The wings are outlined and over-stitched in Kreinik metallic thread. The beads are all attached individually with matching colored thread.
The garland that she holds is completely beaded with gold, peach, and clear beads. The crystal treasures are flowers, leaves, and prisms that all glisten and sparkle in the light.
I am so happy to have finished this one. Now…which one next?…
