Here is my January Bead Journal Project. The center bead is hand blown glass with sterling silver inlay. This square measures 5 X5. This second peice is hand embroidered and the first solid piece that I have beaded. What do you think?
Have a lovely day! Analisa
Wow! I thought the blue was good. But the red just pops right out at you. I love the color contrasts and the cording you used. Very dramatic effect.
I love solidly beaded pieces, even though they take so much more time and are so HEAVY! There's just something so lush and sensuous about them. You did a lovely job with this one :-)
Beautiful embroidery! I especially liked the red "stone", such shades are beautiful.
One is near encrusted and the other IS encrusted -- that's incredible at 5x5. They are both very, very pretty!
I like it. The color is lovely, and your beading shows a lot of movement. I look forward to seeing what you do the rest of the year.Marty SCrackpot Beader
Thank you ALL so much. I could not get a proper picture of the blue to show all the little details. But there are a lot of little layers of felt and beading.Analisa
Both pretty! Love the colors!
Hi Analisa! Your bead journal project is beautiful. I wanted to thank you for helping me with my sweatshirt jacket problem....I appreciate it! Susan
These are both lovely! For many years I encrusted fabric with solid beading. Now, I'm in a phase of allowing a lot of the fabric to show as part of the whole. Both are good.I find the diagonal line and colors in your second piece to be very compelling, dramatic and pleasing! When I clicked to enlarge the blue piece, I could see the felt and bits of embellishment you added. It would be a fun piece to touch! Good work altogether!Robin A.
You have come along way in such a short time. Excellent job on both! I can't choose a favorite.
Beautiful, I especially like the red piece..color color color..love it. Nice work.
They are both so pretty! Lovin' the contrast in the colors. I like the solidly beaded one very much....I tried that this month too....You are so very creative!
