Crystals and Beads
We made it to the crystals and beads! Starting from the center and working our way out, I am using a single strand of beading thread but going through each bead twice to prevent the dreaded wobbles. There is one amethyst bicone in the center star, then inside the first layer, each star Jessica has a Delica bead color 178 which is an iridescent blue purple. The large star Jessicas each have either a Fuschia, Olivine, Amethyst or Aqua bicone in it. The small border has a Delica bead-here forward referred to as DB, and then the 3 x 3 Jessicas has a pattern of Fuschia, Olivine, Amethyst and Aqua all the way around--here forward referred to as the pattern.
