Beaded Carousel, mostly complete. It's been sitting on my pile of unfinished projects for about three years because I haven't been able to find horse/animal beads that I like in the right size. I just got fed up and finally decided to give up on waiting and attach the top to the bottom.
I eventually plan to finish this, but not for a while. I'll add animals like on a real carousel, stairs, and probably some more embellishments around the bottom.
Size: ~3 inches/8.5 cm tall and ~2.5 inches / 6cm wide.
Time: Three years
Materials: Size 11/0 Delicas, 6lb test Fireline, fringe beads, size 8/0 seed beads, and one cubic zirconia drop for the top.
