Having two weeks off at the holdays gave me a great chance to clear up a few projects which havent quite got finished. So here they are:

Mor's Treasure - (I will work on getting a better shot of this one)



Garden of Eden  - the snake is Murano Glass and was a birthday present from my Big Sister (last Nov)



And finally

FrogPond (one made for my mum)



It's a little blurry but the silver ball at the bottom is a ball of frogs  Grin

Thanks. My mum asked for something a little different from the last two (these) but still with the organic feel. So I decided to try something more modern and less natrural in the style. Im really glad she (and you) like them  Grin

i LOVE the snake! When I was a kid I always wanted a pet snake and my parents thought I was crazy... did you create the pattern yourself or is it from a site or book?

Its my own pattern. I tend to work very organiclly. I get an idea, do a couple of sketches to decided what I'd like the finished thing to look like and then I just start beading. I stop when the piece tells me it's finished.  Grin

wow! I'm a seed beader also, but I'm always impressed with anyone who can just start beading (with 3D or layered objects) without having an actual pattern to refer to. I always have to actually make a pattern for myself and know how it's all going to look when I'm stitching.

I was quite scared the first time I tried to do something like this but after a while it gets kinds Zen, beading without a pattern. I always say to myself "at the end of the day If you dont like it you can always cut the threads and start again - bead are never wasted"

you should give it a go - it's fun  Grin
