This is a portion of my completed year long commitment to Robin Atkins, Bead Embroidery Artist. I beaded one butterfly per month and assembled all into one bound book. I used Coptic stitch to bind the butterflies together. On the outside cover is a metal butterfly.
Leapin' Lizard. Bead Embroidered pendant using size 11 seed beads measures 4 inches in length. The focal beads include a marquis shaped blue topaz from my NY friend, Bunny and polymer clay "lizard tail" made by Linda Roberts of San Diego. I love the complex design Linda achieved in the tail. Thank you Bunny & Linda for the inspiration!
