Suite Of Cards

A Bead Buddies Forum member, Tina, set a challenge - named, "Alice In Wonderland".

I have only ever seen the Johnny Depp movie, and the first thing beadable that came to mind was playing cards.

So based on that, I designed and made these little cards in Square stitch.

I then had to look up what order to put them in, and if indeed suites of cards did have an order. There seems to be different orders for different games so this layout is Poker - Diamonds, Clubs, Hearts & Spades.

I strung them with Chinese Crystals, black on one side and red on the other using tigertail and finished with a hook clasp.


I would love to hear from you, questions, comments and salutations all welcome.
