Opal Collar, Step Five

Opal Collar, Step Five
Originally uploaded by satyridae
Here's a close-up so that the rings of pearly white seed beads will show up against the white backing.

I didn't get a lot accomplished today, but I did get several of the bezels enclosed with circles of white beads. There are a couple of pearls and several clear crystals embellishing the places where the rings meet and would overlap.

At this point, I'm really leaning toward keeping the embroidery very simple. The opals are so flashy, so stunning, that it almost feels like too much color would take away from them. So the plan for now is to encircle all the opals with at least two rows of white beads and then re-assess.
