It was a very sad day at ThreadABead when we learnt of the passing of our Queen, Queen Elizabeth II.
After the national celebrations of the Platinum Jubilee to commemorate 70 years on the throne just weeks before, it was a shock to have lost such a remarkable woman so soon after this.
I thoroughly enjoyed creating the Platinum Jubilee Trinket Box to celebrate her 70 years on the throne, and although I was adamant I did not want to create a memorial for her, after several requests I had a change of heart.
If it could help any of you and bring comfort to bead something to celebrate her life, then it should be something I do.
I have based this panel on our much-loved Platinum Jubilee Box, which seemed a fitting tribute.
This bead pattern is made using Japanese Miyuki size 11 Delica. A form of Odd Peyote stitch is used and previous knowledge of the stitch is required along with experience of our word charts. Please note the pattern may not work with any other size and type of beads.
There are 12 delica colours in total for the panel and the finished beadwork is approximately 7.75cm (w) x 9cm (h)
The bead pattern supplied is 13 pages. A colour word chart is provided.
