3 blogs in a week? I beat my own record LOL
Can't wait to share my "Permata" as I've mentioned on my last post.
For that, I want to share some pictures from other tatters. Many thanks to Jon and Elizabeth for permission to use their lovely picture here.
It's JON's lovely picture in her latest book .
It's ELIZABETH's picture. We can read the story in her blog .
The reason why I put their pictures here is to make comparison to my piece. Here's what I have. Can you really spot the difference?
No...I'm not trying to make new design out of Jon's. It simply because I'm really not a good student, failed to follow Jon's clear instruction!!!
I was, unconciusly, adding the count of DS after placing the beads. After slipped the bead, I secure the bead with one DS, and adding another 2 DS as instructed. After third quater, I realized, I have added another DS (times 8 for every beads) , made my ring more full than it's suppose to.Ended up with this modified piece.
A close observation of Jon's example and a very detail image by Elizabeth's (though she added several DS on the chain, but same counts on the ring), I'm really sure that I've made a big mistake for they only have 2 DS after the beads.
Then, I get confuse about this whole DS count. One question, if the instruction is 5 - 5, after completing the picot, how may DS left? Is it 4 or 5? I never worried about this before, because without the cabone ring, if I do either 4 or 5 DS, as along as its consistent, guess I have no problem at all. But the DS for plastic ring have been counted accurately, adding more DS will result...another piece! ^_^
PS : once again, the first two pictures are not mine, added to my blog with generous permission from Jon and Elizabeth. Thank you for let me sharing those images.
