Bead Art

Meet Galwani ("Circle of beads" in Ndebele language). She is the first doll I beaded. She mesures 10" in height and 9-1/2" wide. She is done in size 11 seed bead embroidery with a peyote collar and rusty washer for her mouth. Her corn rows use black matte & glossy seed beads. At the ends of each of her corn rows is one African Christmas bead. She took about 3 months of steady work to complete.
