Here's a clock I made using seed beads. The base is a piece of matboard and I glued the seed beads to that using regular ol' elmers glue. It took a really long time because I basically glued one bead at a time, but I think it was worth it 'cause I love the results. It used to be hung on the wall, but now it's on a shelf and I used a metal plate rack to prop it up.



And here's a close-up


Let me know what ya think...

That is AWESOME! I love it! That must have been a pain to glue all the beads on though.  Cheesy

That's truly beautiful and so well executed. I can't imagine the hours of stringing you did on it!  Shocked

that is simply AWESOME! I would love to do something like that but I have no patience, and the seed beads are just so small!(yet I love seed beads anyway)- reminds me of one of those little plastic horses I made...I strung red, orange and yellow seed beads on thin wire and glued it down, and the other side is green, blue, and purple, but of course that side is not even half done because of my terrible patience skills (or the ones I lack- haha) honestly my goal is to finish it! Smiley
anyway, your clock is awesome! Smiley
