2018 Ornament Exchange - Becky Clay

Victorian Santa #5

Becky Clay writes "I made the Victorian Santa #5 pattern by Linda Farber, which can be obtained from, for Jasvanti Patel.  There are a series of five faces in patterns and I love the shading in the beard that makes it sparkle."

love how his cheeks glow in this photo!

Searching the site, I wasn't able to find that particular pattern, but did come across Linda Farber's delightful Pierre Noel Pin or Ornament, part of Bead-Patterns Magazine, Issue 8.  I did find the pattern on the Sova-Enterprises site, but have never ordered from them, so I have no personal experience working with them, good or bad. 

Want to see what Jasvanti made for Becky?  Here's the full participant list - hop on over to Jasvanti's blog and see:

  1. Hi Becky,
    I love the Santa ornament you beaded for Jasvanti. I collect Santa items so I am going to check out the patterns for these Jolly Old St. Nicks.
    Merry Christmas,

  2. Wonderful Santa ornament Becky! He has so much character. I hate counted patterns, but love the results. Your ornament almost makes me want to try my hand at such things again. Almost. :)

    Thanks for joining in!

  3. Thank you Becky, I love my jolly Santa!!
    I will wear as a pendant, and later I will hang on my my tree.
    I had so much fun doing the ornament exchange.
