LATEST - BEAD ITEMS - MAY 2001
This is one of my two favorite
pieces that I have done. I made it
to wear with an outfit for B&B. I used sizes 8's,11's, 13's, 15's,
delicas, triangles, goldstone chips and beads (6mm), red tiger eye
chips, unakite chips,antique copper beads, 1 lampwork, size 2
bugles, ab faceted beads, hexes, 1 carved bead, and antique copper\
findings. The center is beaded around a rust colored donut.
I threw in everything but the kitchen sink. (GBG)|

BACK TO BEAD INDEX
The flower motif is separate pieces of leather with bead edges that
are sewn together in layers on a solid, folded piece of leather.
The center "faux cab" is one of those aquarium glass rocks that
I bezeled. The leaves are also separate pieces done the some way
with the veins done in bead embroidery. The strap is braided pieces
of leather , with various bead stitches done randomly. Several are
lengths of peyote and the side of the strap with the most beading
was beaded with two rows of rolled edge stitch and then a sorta RAW
done between the rolled edges. All the 3d flowers are slightly
different. (I hate repeats-GBG) I really love the texture and depth.
It defies further explanation.
Thanks for visiting. And Ya'll come back soon.
