Introducing Purple Passion. The face is an amethyst stone. She has metal bead caps for her boobs and holds a wishing star. The strap is done in Ndebele stitch. This was a very nostalgic piece for me and reminded me of one of my favorite childhood books, Harold and the Purple Crayon.
Another beaded brooch in a different color scheme. It features a copper finding, cast glass cabochon and metal bead. The remaining beads are size 11 and 8's. I've bezeled the cabochon with seed beads and sequins. Fast and fun; immediate gratification!
