Thank you all for joining us for this months Art Element Theme Challenge, I don't know about you but this was a much welcomed distraction for me! I, as always was hoping to make more but life happens and I got one project that I had wanted to do for a while done!
As soon as I saw this gold work bee in the Stitch magazine (June/July 2019 issue 119) by Georgina Bellamy aka that embroidery girl I knew I wanted to make it I just needed a push, and this challenge was it!
I can't follow instructions so mine is a little different but I enjoyed the challenge. Gold work is incredibly fiddly and the photos don't show how small this piece is, it's less then 2 inches (my hands make every thing look bigger)!
The piece in the magazine had a pearl for its back end but I was desperate to use this lovely lamp work bee bead by Stephanie White.
Here is the finished piece, it's a pendent at the moment but I think I will turn it into a brooch or maybe frame it?
Thank you so much for visiting, I can't wait to see what everyone else has created!
