Buddha's Bliss

The raku bowl was make by Mak of www.MAKUstudio.com.    When I got the bead, I knew it would be a good challenge with its shape.  I make a peyote base for the buddha head and place some knit wire underneath the head to add some interest.  The triangular portion has sequin leaves and seed beads.  To give it some more Asian flair, I attached a jade pendant to the bottom attached with ladder stitch.  This was a collaborative project and now belongs to Mak.
