Madame R.M. Wasabi

The ceramic delft face was gifted to me by another beader.  The face had an Asian look to it so I went with a geisha idea.  A bead embroidered robe with metal dragon.  The hair is built up on 3 layers of fringe.  The bun on her head is made from a felt bead used for the core with black beads wrapping it.  The hands and feet were made by another beader friend.

Etched metal bracelet

This was a fun and different class using brass plates and etching bird designs in each.  The links are put together with rings.  The entire bracelet comes together with chain and a handmade clasp.


More instant gratification.  Left to right:  Pearls take the stage here.  Little bird beads are the focal.  Colorful beads brighten up any outfit.

Altoid tin trade w/doll

I participated in an Altoids Tin trade.  The pink painted box is the altered tin.  Inside lives a miniature beaded doll.  

Encaustic - Clothes line

 Encaustic play with fabric.  A mini clothesline for the fun of it all.

Encaustic - Frida

A bit of a switch from beads.  Encaustic play with Frida Kahlo.
