Improvisational Bead Embroidery

I don't recall posting this before, it was my first piece when I started beading. This is "improvisational" beading with no pattern or plan, just went wherever I felt like going with whatever I decided to pick up. I'm not surprised that a sort of face emerged. I love faces!

Did you bead this on velvet? Lovely piece. I can see a face, or maybe a bird. :-)

I see a sea bird and waves. It's lovely whatever you see.

What's cool about making a piece like this is the beads kind of take you wherever they want to go. What's cool about looking at piece like this is each person sees it differently. What's cool about seeing this piece on your post is reading the comments about what every one else sees.

I totally didn't see the face until I read "face". What I was seeing was a kind of circus wagon, or gypsy wagon...and then a clown face.

Its a cool piece of beading for sure!

I see a bird - perhaps even riding upon a wave. Don't you love improvising?!

I don't recall seeing this before, so I think this is the first you posted it. I, also, see a bird with a red eye!

I love this Barbara!!! So free form and yet a definite pattern emerges.

The first think I saw was the face (which seems very tribal to me.) And then I read the comments and saw everything else mentioned also. But if I look away and look back - the face is right there.

This is so cool...you do great things with pattern. I do see a neat face in there. Your beading is amazing.:0)

A beautiful piece. I love the colors and the sense of movement.

Wow, hard to believe it is a first piece. Gorgeous. The white really makes a statement and I love the various accents.
