Beaded Christmas Ornaments

Three color combinations using the same pattern.

This photo shows three of my color variations for the small beaded ornament cover pattern. The ornament on the far left is metallic purple, and I used size 11/0 beads in pale orange, lined matte green, and opaque turquoise. (These 11/0 beads turned out to be wider than most, and so I had to reduce the segments in the bottom ring to seven beads each, rather than nine; see Step 16 of the pattern tutorial.)

The middle ornament is from the tutorial itself. It's metallic red with size 11/0s in crystal and green-lined crystal, and size 8/0s in matte crystal. The ornament on the right is metallic fuchsia with size 11/0s in silver-lined crystal and matte crystal, and size 8/0s in lovely metallic rose.
