It looks huge Tinker; how big is it really?

Pru's bracelet is beautiful - love the reflections on those beads. Are they threaded on as you do the braid or added afterwards?

Thanks for all the lovely comments.

Elaine, the beads are threaded onto the yarn at the beginning and then worked into the braid as you go. Same idea as your lovely crochet, but I only had about 150 to thread on!

Wow Kat that bead really does look like a snowball. What's the texture?
Pru your bracelet is lovely. Like little balls of frost on a vine.

Pru that's beautiful!

Thanks all, lol yeah it's probably not as big as the photo suggests, I'll do one in my hand and show you. The texture is made by adding lead crystal frit and not fully melting in, so it sticks like chunks of ice around the outside.

Batty I can't visualise a ring made with it but if you want to have a crack I'm not precious about keeping it!
