On the second Sunday of the month I attend a craft workshop with some wonderful English ladies who are so generous in their teaching and sharing.
The last time I attended I learnt how to make ribbon rosettes/cockades. I became very inspired as I knew I could translate what I was learning into beads.
Above is a work in progress whereby I have done my first version of the rosette. I made this in size 11 Matsuno seed beads and I now think it would be better done in 15's. It is a bit bulky as there is 3 layers.
I am happy with how it looks, certainly an eye-catcher. I shall post images
of the finished product when completed.
