Very nice. I'm returning to my bead embellishments and will try the stacked beads. Thanks for sharing this lovely technique. Jan Myhre, Spokane

Cynthia, the collage just gets better and better. The embroidery is lovely, and the stacked beads make it amazing! The first layer in the stack looks like freshwater pearls, but I don't think I've ever seen any quite like them. Would you share the source, and the name of the shape/style?

Peace and justice now,
Tova

Tova, these flat pearl-like beads came from the local JoAnn's store! The package says they are glass, but I am not too sure about that....anyway, the string has 3 colors of beads on it and I bought two strings, then sorted the colors. This collage has the pink beads, but others will have the white or the pale green.
