Bead Embroidery

Happy new year! I am really committing to not allow my job stop me from making art regularly. This is a piece that I actually finished this past summer but really wanted to share. It was a kit from Ann Benson's website. I really wanted to see if there were any cool techniques. The bead embroidery was not anything new, but she has you work on paper that is fused to the stabilizer. The pattern is printed on the paper. This, I thought, was a cool idea. It also has the directions to add the clasp type handle which I wanted to learn.
