Bead It

You've seen my beaded sap bucket, and beaded bottle.  Now I've beaded a flower pot, and two oval frames.  Beads take really simple objects to that next level.



I also added lace around the top of the flower pot before slathering the whole thing in paint and gesso.















I'm still coming down from my show this past weekend, and horrific heat is in the forecast for tomorrow.  We're suppose to be over 100 degrees again.  Hmmm, what else can I bead....... inside.,,...in the air conditioning.

I love the beads too. For awhile there I was really obsessed with finding household items with a beaded rim. Crazy huh?!

It is amazing how the beads wind up looking like they were on there the whole time, Rosemary! What a great embellishment to add to something to give it more interest. I love it on the frames.

Hi Rosemary,

Beautiful! I use to add beads to most of my projects when I was into the Victorian period. I love your take on it. A great time to find them is during Christmas. The string beads come in so many sizes. I also have some necklaces from Mardi Gras. :)

Love it! Love it! Love it!

They certainly add appeal and another level of interest to rather one-dimensional pieces. Your color scheme steps them up, too!
