After many hours of hard work pushing through this weekend, I did manage to finish my French Beaded Cattelya Orchid Sculpture! I love it. It turned out so much better than I thought it would.
I had the idea to use roots to make the base of sculptures a while back and I thought this would be a good one to try it on. The roots and stems are all wrapped with beads. That took hours to finish. The finished piece measures 14 1/2 inches tall, while the base is 8 x 8 inches. The flowers are each 6 inches wide. I have decided to sell this piece, so it is listed in my Etsy Shop.
