Peacocks and chartreuse go hand-in-hand!! And, beads, of course . . . I've been painting peacock feathers for a friend's wedding - and I really love the shape and colors of them - and of course, I love CHARTREUSE! I sewed the beads on with regular thread, and the bead trim at the bottom is sewn on with embroidery thread. The hand-dyed silk ribbon (purchased several years ago at an awesome little store called The Berry Patch, in Niwot, Colorado) is secured on the back with tape, threaded through holepunch holes - and then I just tied them off with a big ole bead. :-) Happy Saturday, y'all.
