Beaded Venetian Angel ornament.
Bead embroidery on felt. 1″ x 3″ wide.
Over the weekend, I worked on a new item for my Etsy shop! I made a beaded Venetian Angel! My angel was inspired by my recent trip to Venice, Italy
. I saw many religious paintings, sculptures, & frescoes
featuring beautiful angels while I was there. I have always been intrigued by the possibility of angels existing among us, and when I went to Venice, it seemed that I could feel their presence as they looked down upon me! So, I thought to make a beaded angel holiday ornament! This piece consists of bead emboidery on felt. I used size 11 & size 15 Czech and Japanese seed beads. I also added a set of mesh wings and a millefiori
bead that I purchased on the Glass Island of Murano
. I finished the beadwork and now all I have to do is add a backing & list her in my Etsy shop
! How do you think she looks? 🙂
I have also started making a second angel which should be finished soon. And, speaking of holiday items, CLICK HERE to check out my Peppermint Beaded Button earrings!
