Bead Sampler chapter 8.

I have yet to play with beads as edging and sequins and am undecided whether to do a new sample for these or to add these outside.I also need to explore found objects ,such as Milk bottle tops ,for use as "beads"




These are some close-ups showing the bugles and seed beads stitched into patterns.Some were strung and couched into place while others have been added individually,some have been stitched one above another.














This is the first part ,as I decided to use commercial beads to see what I could do with them.I have used one of my fabrics backed with felt as the base.I took the spiral picture of looking up a pylon as the shape I would stitch to.
