FINALLY! I put the last bead on a couple of hours ago, then ironed it and took it outside for some pictures. Unfortunately, the sun is super bright right now, so the pictures came out a bit overexposed, and I wasn't able to correct them as well as I would have liked. There will be more pictures later, but I couldn't have a huge finish like this and not post!
It's honestly not possible to capture the beauty and sparkle of this piece in a picture. The colors are so much nicer than shown here! (For reference, the fabric is plain white Belfast so you can see how much the pictures are off.) I'll try again later when it's not six bazillion degrees outside with the sun blazing down. :p
