BEADED HEAD UPDATE 3
7:15 AM. Well, I've aborted the mission to cover the top of his head with beads; I'm just not sure I can technically manage it - looks like I'll have to get some instruction from one of my beading buddies before I attempt another one but for now I like the effect of it open (kind of looks like a crown). To cinch it in a bit, I decreased a row using the brass Aikos again with an additional row on to that and ended with a row of black garnets. I'll now complete it by trimming the rest of the headdress with more garnets. TBC
9:15 AM. This isn't working. The garnets are buckling around the ears. I'm going to take them out and see if I can cinch it up a bit.
