I think that was the case with Queen Anne's Lace in the matte metallic colorway. I couldn't locate the original blue green iris, which by the way looked lovely.
So I went looking for something else and I discovered this wonderful translucent cathedral bead with bronzed edges. I decided this big a change required a redo of the sample, not the whole piece mind you, I just cut the thread holding the original bead and wove in the new ones. I love the result. This new bead comes to life and sets off the sparkle of the 232 jet ab2x crystals nicely.
I think the translucence of this bead suits the design beautifully
I will have a few of these at Bead and Button, probably a very few.
I love the lacy organicness (yes I know it's not a word, spellcheck did not approve, but it fits) of this design but I am also considering a less organic version for the future.
