And then there were two!

So, here is the second of the Christmas balls. Funny what you see in a picture you don't see when you are stitching! The scattered green beads are a little light on the right hand side and my heart is crooked. Well the heart stays as is but the green beads can be tweaked a bit. This one again is done in Mill Hill beads and a large Mill Hill crystal. The center gold heart and the outer red heart are both quite dimensional. They were made by putting three beads on the thread and then making a one bead size stitch. There is a large crystal below the heart and a design of cream coloured bugle beads. The outer edge is outlined in silver and cream bead mix and everywhere else is filled in with a scattering of green beads. I don't like this one as much as the first but on to the next (after aforementioned tweaking)
