Just experimenting

Something new for me.










Buttonhole stitch with a single strand of Gutterman silk over 28 guage covered florist wire. On 2 layers of fused silk organza.







Swarovski crystals and silver bugle beads.





Pink Mill Hill petite glass beads and silver filigree beads.






Pink Mill Hill glass beads, silver seed beads and Mill Hill clear petite seed beads.




Lots of experimenting.......


Inspired by here. Isn't that butterfly just breath taking!!

It looks really really GREAT!!! I didn't do buttonhole stitch but just overcast the wire. Either method will work but overcasting will give you a less "wide" wire outline and the thread will not get in the way of your beads as much. Just a thought. Bravo to you, you Adventuress you!!!
