Beaded Shimmer Snakes

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!
