Beaded Gerbera -tip for a seamless look

After finishing a big project like the Dogwood Scarf, I like to reward myself with quick small projects.  This week I made two brooches and this is one of them, a Gerbera Daisy Brooch. ...

 It is a pattern from Lacy Crochet...
I decided to make it beaded, strung on my beads and set to work.
This is how my center looked after I finished it...
The arrow is pointing to my joins for each round in an effort to make it look seamless...
Yeah,  I could have crocheted it without a seam but I wanted to practice sewing beads on to try something new for me.

So I found a bead needle and sewed on beads to cover my joins...
and this was the result....
Then I blocked the petals...
 and finished it up.


Enjoy!
