Sometimes a design doesn’t come out quite like I wanted.
The problem here, I think, is I should have used 6 shades of aqua, not just 5; the top, instead of being palest, should have been a slight shade darker.
I’m not entirely sure I have 6 shades of aqua, but so it goes.
Other than that, though, I think it does make an interesting “crystal” design, and I’ll have to poke if I do have 6 gradually darkening shades of a bead color to try it again.
…Well, actually, there is one more problem with this design. A personal one, not a “pretty earring” one. *Sheepish G* I end up with large areas that are a single block of color. A little boring to bead!
