Cosmos: The Classic Doily !!!!!

Hello!! I just thought of welcoming you into a new week with a touch of splendor :)

This is my first beaded crochet doily about which I posted here.  I completed it couple of weeks back but was having difficulty in taking photos and the tiny beads weren't showing up properly on a light background .

It is a classic design, named as ‘Cosmos’, by Julie Haberberger from the book 'Stellar beauties' by Leisure Arts . My Cosmos measures 13 inches across and is made with Anchor redheart size 20 mercer crochet cotton and hook size 1.5 mm.

The place where I stay , Hyderabad (South India) , is a historic city and is currently famous for pearl jewelry and IT industry . Next week , I will tell a little more about my city . From modern to traditional , the fine jewelry designs are available in many pearl varieties . I have many pearl necklaces , mostly silver base , bought on occasions of marriages in family . But now , there are no marriages in near future . I just wear them on festivals .
The box is a handmade from Kashmir State (North India). I bought this last month from a handicraft exhibition here . I love the color and Kashmiri painting on it .

Hope you like my first beaded crochet attempt and I guess it is successful :)

Have a happy week ahead!
Preeti :)

  2. Hi Preeti, your doily is truly beautiful - the picture of it against a dark background really does look like the cosmos too!

    Your pearls look gorgeous, I look forward to hearing more about the jewellery tradition in your city.
