Beautiful work.  I would be careful about a rim or lid - make sure that whatever colour you use doesn't take your eye away from the great beadwork you have done. I'd vote for the lid in a light colour.

LOVE this, but want to caution of my bad gourd experience. I bought one of those cool dark brown african carved gourds at a local store. It's been on a console table behind my couch for some time. For weeks we were trying to figure out why there were fruit flies(?) in my house (mainly the family room) when we had no fruit...well, I'm sure you know where this is going.
Needless to say, i have no idea what those flying critters were, but the gourd that i adore has been sitting in the garage for several weeks now since i sprayed the *bleep* out of it with a bug spray on the inside.

this is lovely! Do you actually bead it onto the gourd through the shell or do you do the design and then put it onto the gourd? I love the colours you used.
