Under A Topaz Sky

For the background layer I used a lightweight variegated cotton perle from Jennifer Gail threads in a slightly darker shade to fill in the spaces.

I tried to weave the feather stitching both over and under the top layer.

Then it was time to start adding the beads. I pulled together a selection of about 4 small ones in shades of turquoise and blue, a couple of different colours of gold and copper small metallics, some very small pearl beads and a couple of larger turquoise/blue ones and using beading thread started to string them randomly to adorn the pieces of glass.

It’s challenging to try and bead the glass in different ways but still ensure the colours and shapes of the glass nuggets aren’t overwhelmed.
