Spirituality Left Details by SkyeTrinity Spirituality Left Details by SkyeTrinity
I wanted to post pictures in which more detail of the piece could be seen….The entire beadwork is described as follows:

This is a piece of bead embroidery that I will be attaching to the cover of a hand made leather journal. It is symbolic of my spiritual beliefs...

All of the beads are glass and range from size 15 to size 10. The fossil in the center is an Ammonite. On the left side is an opal cabochon, although the colors is not really seen in this photo. On the right side is a mother of pearl cabochon, ditto on the colors. Everything was stitched onto a piece of starched felt which I then trimmed around. This piece has been photographed on a piece of black felt, but is not attached. Some of the darker edges are hard to see... I wish I could get a better quality of picture, but for now this is the best I can do.

Yes a mix of glass of some type. That would rock to figure out how to make that style edible in some way. Thanks so much for your comment. :)

Mine to! I am currently working on x-mas presents. I don't like working under pressure!

I also like how you used the pink firepolish as squiggly lines--that's something I probably would have hesitated to do. I get hung up on weird fears.

What would the fear have been? It was really stressfull to make this becuase normally I always use patterns. So when I worked on this it was like "What the hell do you mean I can put beads wherever I want!". Sometimes I got overwhelmed and had to put it away :giggle:

That's kind of how it is for me too; sometimes complete lack of rules translates into a lack of a starting place for me. Though, working around a centralizing element helps with that. With the firepolish beads, the fear would be that 'what are you doing using such (comparatively) large beads in a squiggly line like seed beads? They're too big; thread is gonna show through and they won't squiggle properly etc!'

I don't usually work with patterns per se, but most of my work is very symmetrical, and it can be quite hard to break out of the compulsion to make things 'match'.

Oh my! I agree. I obsessed a great deal about the fact that I could not make both sides the same. I spent a lot of time looking back and forth trying to at least have them "balanced". I am not entirely happy with the way the two sides came out. The first side I did was the left and it is my favorite. It seemed like the right just was not as creative... Still really cool for the first time ever doing this!

Both sides look equally good.
