    Your fingers had to raw after this project. Completely unique. It should be in the movies.

    Amazing! I wonder how much time did it take to sew all the beads? Either way – hats down for you!

      the project took me a total of 28 days, 12 of which I didn’t sleep… I was beading nonstop!

    one question, how did you finish the edges of the fabric under the beading to get it so nice and clean?

      I double folded it and ironed it, then hand stitched it to the back of the beadwork/fabric.

    This is easily the most exciting and original beadwork embellishment I have ever seen! Until I got a good look at the closeups, I thought you had used real clock parts! Just stunning!

    it reminds of the avantgarde/turn-of-century period; a nice tiffany lamp in the background and you’d hardly know the difference…
