Here is a picture of the yarn (Berroco Memoirs, a 2-ply mostly wool/mohair) and the amber crystal beads I intend to use on my beaded shawl. (Online pattern, http://notanartist.blogspot.com/2006/06/mohair-tiger-pattern.html) Although the pattern will be more of a starting point than a map, I think.
The colors remind me of early autumn: greens mixed with browns and a strong dark pink/orange running through it. I took the picture by my pond waterfall, and I can "see" nature in the yarn when the sun hits it on that stone. The amber beads are small, light, and of various hues and lusters and hopefully won't weigh the final product down too much.
