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.
My latest bead art piece. This measures approximately 4.5 inches in diameter. I am having fun with this smaller size and all of the new Alaska animals I have gathered to play with.
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.
No beading yesterday, bummer. I got a good bit done today. This piece is filling in nicely. Enjoy.
