This is the latest glass piece that I've used. It's mounted on an orange batik fabric and attached with 3 rows of beaded back stitch. Each row is a smaller bead, so that they snug up to the glass. Then I hand stitched the design and used it to decide where the other beads would go.
Not sure what will happen with it next, but I have some matching Ultrasuede left over from a purse I made.
