I've been busy reorganizing and putting my beads into Bead Towers. Those that fit will travel with me if we have to evacuate for a hurricane this summer. I found a brooch I bought in Tuscon 6 or 7 years ago to use in a Touch of Russian Elegance necklace. I got side tracked after finding my beads so neatly stacked in the towers I printed out the pattern. It turned out the brooch was not the perfect fit for the necklace. The instructions include beading around a 27mm rivoli which I had in black. I used 11-cut bronze iris seed beads to accent the crystal and the ruffle.
The finishing touch will be a beaded chain
If you would like to create your own Touch of Russian Elegance the pattern can be purchased here.
