Work in progress: The Lady of Shalott

I've started a new handmade beaded necklace, inspired by one of my favorite women, The Lady of Shalott. She was immortalized in a poem by Tennyson (the 1842 version), loosely based upon the Arthurian legend of Elaine of Astolat.

Here are all the construction steps:

Part one
Part two
Part three
Part four

Beading foundation fabric
Beading thread 
Seed beads
Accent beads
Pendant beads

Tools: chain nose pliers, round nose pliers, wire cutters, needles 
Basics of Bead Embroidery (first chapter of  Every Bead Has a Story is free!)
