I'm back with another little Springtime Sculpture that I've just completed. Last week I showed you my Tulip Sculpture, and this week I've got some sweet little Snowdrops!
I almost potted the Snowdrops, but I had another idea for a new type of sculpture base and I just had to try it out. I'm glad I did!
I was experimenting some more with a smaller sized bead, an adventure that I'm rather enjoying. This time I used some 13/0 charlotte cut white beads, and 15/0 light green beads for the leaves. The base is regular old trusty 11/0 beads. It is really strange going from working with the smaller beads to the 11/0's. They suddenly feel gigantic and weird!
The sculpture measures about 7 inches tall and 6 inches wide. :)
I have also started on my Bearded Irises for the PDF pattern I am producing for them. I was hoping to have that done this month, but it looks like I'm going to be a few days late. Sorry! I know quite a few people have been waiting for it, so I apologize that it's taking so long. After doing so many custom orders in a row I just really needed time to work on the ideas that were popping in my head or I was going to go crazy. But now the Iris Pattern is the first item on my agenda.
See you next week!
