Persephone - Goddess of Spring & the Underworld.
This is probably my most sparkly design yet! I've had the idea for a while, but getting all the crystals to compliment each other wasn't as easy as I thought, once I decided on the chartreuse green theme throughout everything sort of came good!
I said this took 17 needles - this is because my needles of choice are the inexpensive 'Pony' needles (thanks Kandra!), and they bend rather than break. This means I rarely break a bead now, the needle gives up before the bead does, and weaving in and out of an already bezelled navette bends a lot of needles!
Anyway - here she is. I shall now try and rest this strained muscle in my shoulder!
