Since we now have nearly 23 hours of daylight I will start a bead art piece using tons of tiny beads! This piece is approximately 9 inches by 12 inches. I spent one day getting the foundation together and drawing the basic outlines. I am using size 11/0, 13/0, 15/0, and the smallest so far are the size 22/0 vintage Italian “greasy” beads used on the birch trees Follow my progress, ask questions, leave remarks… it’s going to take awhile to complete this one. I plan to spend as many days outside enjoying our short summer as I can. I can bead on rainy days.
I love the feel of Ndebele chain. I won’t be doing it for a while after making 26 inches of it with size 11/0 seed beads… in white. She is kinda cute tho. She needs a name, ideas welcomed.
This is a piece I made for a juried show. Found out today that it has been accepted! I can’t wait for First Friday. It should be a great show.
Beautiful show at Alaska House Art Gallery. Great First Friday crowd in town. Thank you, Yolanda Fejes.
Finished! I put in about 8 hours of beading today. Trimming, backing and edging. This is the last of 4 pieces I am doing for a March show. I will post all of them on the day of the Show.
Thanks for following along, deb
I completed the main beading late last night, added some tassels tonight. I will trim, add backing and start the edging tomorrow. For those asking about the size, it is a 5 inch circle.
Almost done with the main part, should be done tomorrow. Now to decide on my edging.
