Yesterday, I completed the 2nd dome on my beaded St. Mark’s Basilica. This beading curve is not easy to accomplish. Working in beaded backstitch, it takes precise needle placement to get the curve right. Sometimes, I stitch through several seed beads again just to enforce their direction. How do you think it looks so far?
