"Sea Star Bead"

"Sea Star Bead"

Item 1640

Designer: Bead Infinitum http://www.beadinfinitum.com/Kits/index.html#Sea_Star

This pattern worked great!

Beaded by Sharon Erwine, 2010

I changed the pattern just a little: I added 5 points to the star tips (after step 12 of the pattern). I decided to try crystal bicones instead of rounds, so I used 8 lb test Fireline to prevent breaking the line. This worked great except the bead holes were so full by the end that it was a little hard adding the last 10 beads of the pattern. Then I wanted to carry out the theme of 5 points for the neck chain, so I did my own variation of right angle weave, using 5 beads instead of 4 for each unit (look close). I hope you like it!
