Bead, beads, beads. I had the worst time picking out beads for the 15-sided biscornu. I must have tired at least 15 different colours.
Here’s what I ended up with:
The beads are Mill Hill Magnifica colour 10020 (Royal Amethyst). The DMC colours are 208 and 209, the over-dyed is Needle Necessities 1481 Mystique, and fabric is Enchanting Lair’s Ametrine.
I love the beads. They give the piece so much life. The silver beads I tried just looks flat and lifeless. Weird how that worked out. I thought that purple beads would be too much purple, but that isn’t the case at all.
If you’d like to stitch this 15-sided biscornu too, head over to Kathrin’s blog and download the charts. We are up to square eight so far.
