I recently discovered that I love making beaded appliques. Bead by bead, from scratch. I had no idea I possessed this kind of patience!
Here is my latest hand-beaded project:
It’s a sparkly silver snake wearing a big white bow! I’m making a few of them to adorn a sash for a photo shoot coming up.
Not that I’m super into reptiles, or anything! One night, my friend Julie was wearing these gorgeous sandals with swirly silver beading. I gushed over them, and she preceded to take them off, hand them to me, and went home barefoot. (Thanks Jules!)
Everytime I wear them, I can’t help but stare down. It looks like gorgeous shimmery snakes winding around my feet.
Hence, the urge to create hand-beaded snake appliques. The big white bow? I’m a girly girl, what can I say!
