Bead Journal Project

I've joined the Bead Journal Project again and am on the 3rd blog http://evenmorebjp3.blogspot.com/  There are so many members that we need 3 blogs! The website is http://www.beadjournalproject.com/  It has all the information on the project and galleries for the first two years.

This piece is about 6 inches square. I've decided that this year the backgrounds would be felted wool with rovings embellished into them. Then I used metallic thread to quilt it and beads to embellish. Each will have a focal object-one of those things that I just had to have but haven't used. This one is Mother of Pearl that just happened to have the hole in it.
