I suppose I could remedy that conundrum by making more ropes. I'm just not so sure I'll be having the opportunity to make much more of these Pearl ropes. I mean to leave a bit more than just 'grandma's bead stuff' when I go on up to the spirit in the sky, and since the cost of materials for these might put me in the poorhouse... ;) Unless they sell, well, now that would be a different story, wouldn't it? Then maybe I could wind up in the 'rich house' instead of the poorhouse.The first rope.
I'm afraid a picture can't do these pearls justice. Actually, I think the camera can, it's the computer screen that can't. lol!
On my screen, these come up a bit more bronze, whereas they have more of a khaki color in person, with some bronze and brassy undertones.
Numéro deux: Natural pearl rope.
Now, even though I used the same stitch count on this rope than the previous one, it didn't take me long to realize that the pearls on this one were bigger. Like, "put the strands side by side, and you might miss it" bigger... And so it came out longer than the brown one. Which means I can probably hold back a little with the ends on this one, but they'll still be flashy. I'm thinking crystals for this one. Big, fat honking Swarovski's, like this large Roundelle here:
18 mm across
Aren't pearls absolutely scrumptious?
