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 have been beading busy! Yes, beading busy. I have a new show in Feb. just set up for that today. Will get pics up soon. I also have 1 piece in an invitational show, and I am working on 4 pieces for a show in March. Whew.
I think now is a good time to start another follow along project.
This is a follow along project. I will take as many pics as I can, sometimes I just get into the beading and forget to stop! I spent a few days cleaning / reorganizing the bead room and found things long forgotten! The center piece is a piece of Australian Opal, in matrix. It is a beauty. I love the flashes of red when it is in the sunlight.
Here we go.
