Journey




Hi, I'm bobbi (beadbabe49) from Oregon....thought I'd post my first bead embroidered piece, which I made about 5 years ago. I've been doing beadwork for almost 20 years, but didn't get around to beading on fabric until more recently. And finding robin's two books, A Bead at a Time and especially Beaded Embellishments, gave me both information on how to do this and inspiration to do it.
Anyway...here's my first piece...done on pellon and backed with leather using some carnelian art glass pieces and a carnelian fish...
And last spring/summer I did two beaded cuffs....
I'm really looking forward to getting started on the bead journal next month.
Since I was diagnosed with breast cancer 4 years ago, I'm going to do all 12 pages on the general theme of Facing Forward and using different face beads, cabs and pendants as focal points on the pages.
But that's all I know so far....the rest will just happen as I do the beadwork.
