Beaded Leaf-Shaped Jewelry Box
The box is adorned with thousands of beads to create a unique look. The bead embroidery mimics a leaf with the various veins depicted by different size beads – #6 beads form the center vein, #8 beads form the side veins, and #11 beads form the veins coming off the side veins. An assortment of beads fill in the space between veins. Each of the crystal beads represents a hole where the embroidery is affixed to the box’s top. Miniature lampwork pieces add dimension to the top. The box is maple and panga panga. This technique is an idea I generated that combines my two hobbies – scrolling and beading. The beading took approximately 60 hours to complete.
