I have just listed Emeralda, a beaded bead necklace that was created for the Etsy Beadweavers Team March challenge on the theme Faberge Egg. It is playing further with the netted beaded beads in Summerberie. I felt these beaded beads strongly evoked the trellis patterns common to many Faberge eggs and feature the vibrant jewelled tones seen in many Faberge eggs (for example, see http://www.123rf.com/photo_6833652_faberge-egg-isolated-on-white.html).
To see the other wonderful entries in the challenge please visit the Etsy Beadweavers team blog, http://www.etsy-beadweavers.blogspot.com between the 9th and 15th March and vote for your favorite entry.
If you feel inspired to play with Faberge you might find these tutorials of interest.
