Beading a progression

I've been lax in posting on the blog but I'm hoping to make up for it. Last summer I took a class with Sherry Serafini to make a beaded bag. Well, the colors in the kit weren't really inspiring me and I decided to start over. I'm going with a theme of black and using different sized black beads and finishes to create the bag. For some accents, there are some crystals in a clear white. I also thought it would be interesting to post a picture of the bag at the end of the night and follow the work progression.

Bead Embroidery Bag

Bead Embroidery Bag
Just a little bit of progress tonight.

Insanity is...

Bead embroidery bag (blacks)

embroidering a bag with teenie tiny size 15 black beads with tired eyes at 1 in the morning.

Beading inspiration has been lacking at times. For a long time, my beading time was not my own. I'm slowing working on reclaiming that and hope to get back to doing some more spectacular beadwork.
