Hand beading a veil

My daughter requested this veil for her wedding on the 23rd of July, so I thought I would share what I did! First I cut out the two bottom corners so that they curved nicely, then with a beading needle and doubling my white thread, I knotted the thread right into the tulle. This makes it so the thread doesn't slip through since there isn't much for it to hold on to. Then started with 3 of the clear beads, 1/4" from the edge of the veil....made a small stitch in the tulle and three of the glossy beads. I continued to alternate in this manner all the way around the sides and curves, leaving the top edge to gather on the comb. This need up being a perfect weight and fell nicely around her shoulders!
