Bead Embroidery Belt

belt center detail

My next bead embroidery project was a great first effort in combining my beadwork with Jeff’s leatherwork. I really like the organic feeling that the bead embroidery produces, and I’m a big fan of The Art of Bead Embroidery for its simple how-to instructions and beautiful pictures. I used a Japanese crest pattern as the basis for the design, and then embroidered it using lots of old African brass beads with pearls, shells and Japanese seed beads.
