So far, I think I’m using six different blues. The left side of the piece is darker & brighter (using size 11 turquoise glass seed beads), and as the lights turn the corner, they get lighter & smaller (using size 15 Japanese glass seed beads).
These lights are a bit time-consuming as I am beading 2-bead stacks instead of using the backstitch technique. I’m hoping the results will be worth the effort. What do you think?
