A pearl ball

This was a first try at making a puffy beaded bead along the line of the puffy hana-ami motifs I wrote about. The first pattern I came across for making these five-petal beaded beads was based on pearls rather than glass or crystal beads with seeds in between.

I used rice-shaped grey peacock FW pearls to make the doubled flower motifs and then added nugget pearls to cover the visible threads a bit. Because the thread was a bit too visible, not least since the pearls aren't perfectly uniform. Not the prettiest pearl ball, but the one that got be interested in making more hana-amipuffar.
