Ganesha is a happier Deity today! He was crowned yesterday and today he feel like a shining star! I used a gold plated daisy spacers to add lots of texture and richness to his crown. Now I just have the background to complete in the silver lined gold beads. I am using these again for a couple of reasons:
- I like the richness of the beads.
- I like the way that they appear different colours when light hits them.
- I purchased 1/4 kilo of them when I was scheduled to teach a class and I was making kits. The class was cancelled and I have 1/4 kilo of these beads.
Looking ahead to my next projects, I am thinking of a picture of Casie - my dog on some rocks - put together very similar to projects ala "The Lone Beader" with layering, etc. I do have to get more colours of 15's to complete the dog - so that will wait for a while.
I am also working on my largest flat bead embroidery piece - It's going to be called (at least for now) "North American meets South America" and it's 8 inches high by 17 inches wide. I know, I know - I really need to get a life!!!
