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

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.

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.
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. :)ReplyDelete
Thanks for joining in!
Thank you Becky, I love my jolly Santa!!ReplyDelete
I will wear as a pendant, and later I will hang on my my tree.
I had so much fun doing the ornament exchange.
