The final piece! I'm thinking of calling it "Grape Expectations"! This piece is actually a lot brighter, but I SEE it was a little difficult to photograph! This was despite the fact that the photo was taken outside on a sunny day and that I had already tried to lighten it up by adding white, cream and lavender touches. Beads, buttons, wire spirals, a flattened glasses frame, an old brooch and even a safety pin play a part in the construction. Bead stitches include peyote, stacked, flower, fringe, back stitch and bocce/boucle. Perhaps the darkness of the piece was reflecting back my mood during the month of March. That's when an evil virus took hold of my computer and my hard drive had to be reformatted. Oh well!!! Live and learn and don't forget to backup your files. April is sure to be much brighter!
