Felted Vessel -- Beaded

I haven't posted much due to making some surprise holiday gifts and then going away. When we returned I decided I wanted to bead the felted vessel shown in my last post, something suggested in a number of comments. It doesn't take much beading to embellish something like this -- just enough, not overdone, and there's a Swarovski crystal (for positive energy) at the top of the copper charm. That charm was in a box of goodies generously sent by Ooglebloops, the "Queen of Thrifting"!

The embellishments really add to the loveliness of this piece. The copper charm looks completely at home there. Ooglebloops is a sweet and generous person. I am happy to say she is my friend even though we have never met.

Barbara, so lovely to hear from you!
Love your felting pot!
Thank you for being honest about the haunting part of my art also. I can see it myself and think its the sadness seeping through. I'm not sad all the time, but when it happens it seems so strong. Good job I'm happy mostly, lol! I want to stay in this moment always! We all do, because we're all such beautiful people! Your very beautiful! :)
