Purple Rain

About this design:

I love the combination of brass and amethyst crystals!

The large crystal fit perfectly in the center of the asian motif, so I punched holes at the 12 and 6 o'clock positions, close to the inside of the circle, and stitched the bead in with several passes of fireline. Next I punched holes at the four bottom points of the motif, close to the outer edge, and added dangles with headpins and small crystals.

This design was quick and easy to make.
