I'm in two minds over this now I've got the stem embellished.  My original plan was to bead the whole glass, then I thought maybe I'd bead part way up but I rather like it just the way it is.  What do you think?

As you can see from this close-up, I attached 5 bezelled 4mm chatons around the top of the stem and joined them together with pearls to give them a bit of stability as they were 'rocking' from side to side when I touched them.  I was unsure about whether I needed to add a row of crystals to the top as I have done underneath the chatons but decided to leave it plain until I've made the decision about the top of the glass.  I might just leave it as it is and add a different row to the very top edge of the stem instead.

So, what do you think?  Am I finished, or not?


  1. More! I think its lovely, a unique idea but I like the idea of it being half way up the glass, possibly with a wavy line, not a straight one...I can say these things as my skills are not good enough for a lovely project like that! Lx

  2. Thanks. :o)

    Laney, no excuses, I bet you could it if you tried. Look how quickly you've picked up the seed beading. This is my first go and I hadn't a clue if I would be able to do it. Now I know I can. :oD

  3. this looks fantastic, well done x
