One of the design details I love about Medallion is how the clasping blocks out. Isn't that an elegant form that is created by the lace shaping? I've a stash of snap clasps on hand as I've been finding them to be a great affordable way to finish a variety of jewelry designs.
Of course, I must tell you all about all the materials I used... the yarn is one of my new loves, Jill Draper Makes Stuff Aurora in Copper, this pattern only uses 15 yards of laceweight and I had it in my stash from some other swatching I was up to! (thanks Jill!) It turns out to be the a great color for these hot summer days... and it matches the butterflies in my garden perfectly! See?
Finally... the beads! The edge beads are raspberry lined size 8 Miyuki and the interior beads are a "new to me" Delica Miyuki in size 8. These are more cylindrical, like little tubes, and they fit beautifully on the yarnovers. I found an excellent selection of them here. I also did some tests with regular size 8 beads and the cuff came out beautifully so don't feel like you have to run out and buy these. I just love finding new shaped beads to play with and sharing them with you!
I can't wait to see your versions of Medallion! It is available both as part of the Adorn Anew Collection , and individually.....
