This past fall, I was able to scrounge around a lapidary artists rocks and slabs. I found this amazing piece of Crazy Lace Agate the just screamed about being made into something big, beautiful and breathtaking! Here is the process of making this piece.
Part of the initial design phase. Do you see the marks that I was going to bead, but decided not to?
The final piece measures 6" around and has 3 layers of a sparkly cardstock. I then framed it with a keepsake frame so that the glass isn't pressed against the beads. I turned out quite nicely I'd say. I entered it into the What inspires you contest and even though I didn't place, I'm still very proud of it!!
I have listed this Wall art on Artfire. It's one of those items that I love so if it doesn't sell, I will still keep and love, but if someone else sees it, and loves it I am more than willing to sell it. You can find it here.
