3 HOURS AND COUNTING.....

I managed to squeeze out 3 hours of beading last night.....WHAT??  3 hours you say???

 Yup...attaching unusual focal items to fiber isn't really difficult.....but I'll admit, it can be time consuming.  Though, seriously, I'm not really counting.....it takes what it takes.....this isn't a sprint.  For me, my projects are more marathon style.

The pin back is now secured to the machine embellished Woolfelt using a combination of black and white delica seed beads.

Here's a view from the side....there will be 5 rounds of beads to reach the top.
Now....to cover up that small fissure in the fused glass, I added some dangles. I'm not sure where I go with this project next.  Lately I've been appreciating cleaner and more simplified designs, rather than adding a whole bunch of stuff just because I can!!

Let's see what happens.....  How about you?  Have you noticed any great shifts in your work over the last two years or so??
