experiments in bead embroidery
my first attempt at bead embroidery. i have been enjoying this more than anything i have made in a long long time! i realize i have a long way to go, but you gotta start somewhere.
the flower basket cabachon is vintage from the 1930's. i have had it for nearly 8 years - just liked it and bought it not knowing what i would do with it. i am going to make it into a pendant por moi.
the purple piece is a vintage sew on - i don't know how old - which i just purchased from a seller on etsy. it is gynormous and those are size 8 rounds i beaded around it with. mainly just figuring out stitches and patterns and improvising on this one. will be a cuff for me when it is done.
