I bought a GIGANTIC bag of wooden beads from a thrift store. I was inspired by the zodiac collection Shigure has that Tohru first admires at the very beginning of the manga/anime. I found a few pictures from both the anime and the manga and a few projects that people had done themselves. So I started hand painting all of them and decided that I would have to add a few more beads to make it complete. I sealed all the beads with modpodge after I deemed them good enough since it was all I had for some sort of sealer. I first put them on stretch cord but it turned out to be way to huge and the paint kind of rubbed off after awhile. So after almost a year later I had a new idea and set to work. Im pretty happy with how it turned out now even though it took forever to figure out a good spacing. I hope everyone can see all the details on the beads one or two may be hard to see. Sorry for the huge intro onto the picture!
