Bead experiments

Looking at beaders blogs, I thought I'd try to do bead embroidery, and this little rose made itself.

I was also thinking about Celtic knotwork, and tried to incorporate that - unsuccessfully - I think the rose looks better on its own.

Having "finished" the design, here's a pic of the contents of the experiment box in my bead drawer, where the design shall now live.

LOL...ha, purple, I was just going to say the same thing! now, we've had photos of folks' wip's, but never their ep's (experimental pieces), the ones that will never leave the box, but you don't want to just take them apart either!
oh, sweet flower! how did you like bead embroidery?
