Moon Beams and Tea Leaves

My newest baby.  I wish the lime colors would pop more.  It is completely hand beaded and embroidered.  You can't really tell from this picture but it is comepletely covered in clear shiney beads.

And the top.  I will be putting it in a black frame.  I wanted to take a moment and tell you how excited I am to be joining the Bead Journal Project for 2011.  You must make a beaded object each month and from what I can see by looking at this years entries is that they make the same size/type of object each month so one woman made 8x10 pages beaded and another made brooches ect.  So a theme.  Here is a link in case you want to read more about it or are interested in joining.  I believe the join date is November. http://www.beadjournalproject.com/  Scroll down to the bottom and you can see the galleries ect.
Here are some tea wallets my friend asked me to make for some gifts for the holidays.

Want to wish you all a great weekend and be seeing you soon!
