Here it is!!!

It is finally done and I am so excited about it. I love to push the envelope in my work sometimes but I really pushed it hard with this one. It is huge! The bag itself is 3 1/2 x 3 3/4. The fringe at the longest point hangs 9". I tried making the neckchain shorter at 24" with a clasp to compensate for the large size of the bag but it is still a really big bag. Yup , beaded wall art. But I could be wrong. I went to the very first meeting tonight of a Jewelry makers group formed by a fellow Etsian that happens to live in my town. I was very excited. My first social event away from my computer (with real people in the same room as me!) in a very long time. Any way , I hauled this with me to get some feedback on the size of this and was told that some one out there would absolutely buy this to wear for the "extra bling factor" So I am on the fence but I will try putting up for sale first as jewelry and maybe change it up a bit with hummm maybe "wearable art" or Beadwoven wall art" we shall see, anyway, as happy as I am with this it will be a very long time before I take my sizes this far again. I will keep you posted on what happens with it.
Have a great night...or day depending on where you are.

  2. I cannot give you enough credit for the amount of work that goes into one of your pieces. I dread just the thought of beading any of my own work. Your new purse is gorgeous.

  3. Thank you for the compliments they alway's feel so good. Funny thing Diane, think about how you feel when your creating, does it feel like work?
    It doesn't to me, my beading is such a passion that I find the time I spend on it is the most enjoyable, relaxing, theraputic time I have. I think you probably , when I say you I mean every artist of every medium (and I beleive we are ARTISTS) feel the same.
