1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Bead portraits! on: October 28, 2009 02:14:58 AM
Hi! So this is my first time showing anything i've made here on craftster, so be gentle:)

It's two portraits made in Nabbi beads (like the ones you put on a peg board and iron, only these cant be ironed but are stuck together with double sided tape at the end)

I was looking at the beautiful twilight crossstitch that is currently featured on the frontpage and really wanted to make a huge portrait - but i know i don't have the skill nor the patience for that, but started to play around with making patterns for crossstitching the portraits i wanted anyway!
Then when looking at the pattern of all these little different colored squares I thought it looked like the prestamped/colored pegboards you can by for kids - so why not change the medium to something more suitable for me:D
The results:

My Boyfriend and me



My cousin and her daughter
