Rosebud and Lace fabric covered beads

While experimenting with my fabric covered beads I discovered I could create a beautifully textured effect by adding cut out pieces from some old brocade anglaise style lace.


I used Fabri-tac to adhere the pieces onto the beads. I think they make  fabulous focal beads  and it has opened up a lot of ideas to experiment with now.

    more color
