My First Beading Project

No one can say I don't jump into a new hobby with both feet! I made this
just over 30 years ago. At the time, we had an 18 ft cathedral ceiling and this
hung in front a huge window. It's been packed away since we move here, but
it still looks great. I have glass circles for shelves packed somewhere in the garage.
It's a little over 7ft from top to bottom and the bottom circle is 18". It was made with
over 12,000 clear plastic beads. Image today's cost if they were Swarovski's!

It's made mostly with right angle weave, but it wasn't called it back then.

My grandma made tables exactly like this! Please, please, please let me know if you know where I can find a pattern for it.
