Bob's Work of Art

About this design:

This was made for my Mother, her being an active member in the Red Hat Society. This was my first attempt at ladder stitching. I love it because my mom keeps saying how much she gets compliments every time she wears it.


Red seed beads, white irradesant (sp) seed beads. Red barrels I found in a mix. Blood red tear drops. Silver chain I found at a thrift store. 24&28 wire was used on the first attempt at wire wrapping, for the earrings. Two antique pewter 7-1 brackets, re-designed to silver, 5-1 brackets.
