Another one done!


I have finished one more, now I need to get to work on my January one. Still behind but catching up slowly. I had so much fun with the face that I want to do all faces now.
Love, Kandra

I love the face and the rest of the piece. The colors are so rich. Can I ask how you got such a good photo? That area is one of my weaknesses.

I have a cube that I take my pictures with. I put my pieces in the cube and I have three lights one in back and one on each side. My camera is a Nikon 4500 and it takes the best pictures, but your lighting is really import. Hope that helps a bit.

This is a very beautiful piece! I love the face and the exquisite, detailed beadwork. Did you make the face, yourself? It's lovely and very peaceful. One more question. What stitch did you use for the 3-D leaves? I'm pretty new to this, but I'm thinking that I MUST learn to make some of these before the project is over.

Hi Anne Marie,
The leaves are really easy to make, string on the length you want your vine to be, I think I did 20 beads then string on 2 stem beads and six leaf beads then needle back into the second bead from the needle add 3 beads and needle back into the first leaf bead you put on, the one next to the stem beads. Then needle into the 2 stem beads and up maybe 3 beads in the vine and do another leaf. I make mine close together because I want them to be full. If you don't understand what I wrote email me and I will email you a pattern you can look at.
Thank you, Kandra

This is an amazing piece! There is so much to look at. Two things struck me. First, the colors are very subtle, even though the major colors are complimentary (red and green). Second, it is very well balanced, but not symmetrical. If I had a piece that turned out this well, I'd want to do all faces, too. Thanks for posting.

Thanks Kandra! I'll try out your stitch, and will let you know if I have any problems. I'm not sure what I'll use it for, but it will be a nice addition to my toolbox - Anne Marie - Toronto
