Ta-da, this is my favourite piece of art! I made it with little plastic beads in six different colours. I made the pattern in photoshop. I did a lot of measuring and posterizing there... It took me about six months (I WAS doing other things too, like school and stuff :-)) and about 16820 pearls!! The whole picture measures about 24x32 inches.

I had great fun making it, and now its framed and all ready to show off. Enjoy!

Holy cow. 

That is amazing.  Are those those plastic beads that you put on the grid and then iron a little to make them stay together?

That is too cool!  I'm always fascinated by artwork that you can make by utilizing the technology of breaking things down into pixels, tiny tiny squares that can be represented by knit stitches or needlepoint or whatever.  But this is something I never would have thought of!  It's really neat.  I'm impressed with your patience!

Thats pretty awesome. If I have the right idea of what you used, then I used to make little star-shaped coasters from them when I was little, but I'd never have thought you could use them to make something so beautiful!

I used the filter called "mosaic" in photoshop. Before that I worked a little with the colours.
