Purple Panache

This burnt velvet beaded shawl project was a class with Deanna Powell at the Chicago National EGA Seminar. I had finished a short bit of the netted fringe and a small amount of the embellishment beading on the shawl in the class.  This is one of my New Year’s Resolution projects.

Here are the beads used in the netted fringe: #11 seed beads, 3mm bicone Swarovski jet AB, 4 mm Czech fire polished AB, iris 2 cut beads, 4 mm bicone Swarovski amethyst AB, 7 mm AB teardrop, and #15 seed beads. The thread is a Japanese made thread called SoNo.

I’ve done a bit more on the silk gauze cat.  There is a counting mistake and I’m trying to decide if I will take it out or just go with it.  It is difficult to unstitch on the silk gauze.
