Bead embroidery done

Please excuse my Butterfly, I uploaded it by accident and can't figure out how to take it off. That's okay though, she's a pretty one. The Butterfly has been my business logo since 1989 and I am alway's looking for pretty ones to use.
I finished the bead embroidery on my experiment today. Since then I have been giggling my butt off. The embroidery work has taken me 37 hours. So if I charged minimum wage for my labor alone I already have the price up to $271.00. MMMMMM I don't think that would work out well for sales but you never know. Any way at this point , I have changed my mind about the end product. This piece has some weight to it. If I add lining, fringing, and a neckchain it would not be easy to wear. So this piece will be just a Credit Card/Business Card holder to tuck in my purse. The size is perfect! So now I am getting ready to line it and stitch it together so the next picture I post will be the finished product. Hope your having a great week.

  1. WOW, that piece is amazing! I've started playing with putting beads into mixed media art quilt squares and it amazes me how little things that alone weight so little when put together, weigh so much.

    Pricing is so hard when you spend SO much time and effort making a piece. It really is stunning though :)
