Heres something ive been working on..Im not quite sure where I am going with this one.. Im open to suggestions, if you have any! Ive simply woven beads together on a frame. Mostly bugle beads with some crystal and seed beads here and there. It might end up hanging in a window, who knows?

This large piece is 18" across. The flowered part is slightly puffed and raised above the outer vines, which cannot be seen in this photo. Its a fine example of how dimension is completely lost in the photo process. I did this back in the 90s. It will eventually be the center piece of another painting later.

I started this one a couple of years ago.... Its my first serious bead piece. I had no plans in the design at all, it just came out that way. Its a sort of bead sampler... I learned how it feels to work with beads and played with different techniques. I had fun while it lasted!
The ceramic face in the middle.... is all I have left of what was once a bigger piece from Iceland. I was heartbroken when it fell to the floor and broke in pieces. At least the face was undamaged. I used copper colored baking clay and crystals to bring it back to life.
