Bead Journal Project May

Posted by PicasaI actually finished this just after the end of May but it was inevitable that I would fall at least slightly behind at some stage!

This was a lot more planned than April's and I actually think I prefer the more spontaneous look.  Though I am pleased with this, certainly.

The face is such a pretty, delicate one (from my collection bought from various vendors, sorry I can't acknowledge your beautiful work) that I wanted to use a similarly delicate found object with it.  And not to biuld up beads around the face like I usually do, but just to do one round.  the found object is a piece of fine wire that I found lying around that I twisted randomly.  When I had finished I decided that it looked vaguely like dragonfly wings and I thought of the creature from Pan's Labyrinth and that sort of informed what I was making.

It is finished with the usual encrusted edge.

This seems quite different to your other beaded works, maybe it is the colours?? I like the face!!

I strolled back through your blog and looked at your other pieces again and I think this one fits well with the others. Each one has its own spirit showing through. Very nice.

Thanks fr the comment. Yes you are still a 'no reply'. I don't know why. I clicked 'reply' and there it was 'no-reply'.
I don't know what you can do about it. Somewhere there must be a setting but I can't work out where it is!
nyway I love your little beaded piece..such patience, and I love the fabric in the picture below. It reminds me of the felt I made for one of my pieces! Colours and shapes and everything.

I see the delicate, twisted wire and beading as very complimentary to the face... It doesn't seem pre-planned at all to me, instead has a rather spontaneous feel to it. Although it's different than your other pieces, it belongs with them and has your individual style. Looking forward to seeing more!
