i don't bead nearly as much as a i used to. but i think i'll be coming back to it sometime.. when the time is right. like, say, after i've gotten that fancy ott floor lamp. my eyes are not what they were 20 years ago when i started beading!
here is something i did in 2007, with seed beads, freshwater pearls, vintage and contemporary pressed glass beads, and a pewter bunny charm. i beaded this piece onto a "sandwich" i made of 2 layers of hand dyed batik with wool felt between the layers. sometimes i let the batik show through, but not on this piece. somehow the fabric affects the design while i am beading, though, wether or not i let parts peek through.
