Another Ornie done!

I've been working on the Angel ornaments that I showed you from Twisted Oaks Designs. They're fun and pretty easy. The blackwork does take some concentration because it's easy to get lost, but it's so gorgeous.

I just realized that I did the green one on 32 count apparently, because the cabachon used for the face doesn't fit. Oops. I'll have to think of something. And I'm not real thrilled with the Algerian eyes in metallic. Hard to be consistent. Oh, and I haven't put the beads on yet. (Did I mention that the beads and 3 cabachons come with the chart?)

And I've started the pink one, but obviously not much is done yet.

I'll probably do more once I figure out an alternative to the cabachon for the face. Any suggestions? I really love these sweet ladies.

  1. What is a cabuchon?

  2. wire-sculpture.com sells loose cabochons by size, so I bet you could find some to fit. Good luck!
