When she takes time off from gardening, my roommate/bestie/sister (hard to categorize everything we mean to each other) J relaxes by doing beadwork. She learned bead embroidery less than two years ago. Though you wouldn't know it from this:
She took some bubble glass that we found at the local stained glass store and created this masterpiece. Oh, the fringe! (And she actually likes to do fringe. I don't understand...)
Here's a close up of Midnight Dance.
I continue to be amazed at the diversity of work that beads can create. And how much enjoyment comes from those tiny little gifts.
I'd say J has the hang of this beading thing, wouldn't you?
