>Beaded St. Mark’s Basilica – Finished?

 Here’s a photo of what my kitchen work table has looked like for quite some time now:

As you can see, I cut out some small felt towers to add to my beaded St. Mark’s Basilica. I used bugle beads and size 11 pearl grey seed beads for these, as well as tiny size 15 gray seed beads.

After I beaded the towers, I created a handful of gold crosses using gold filled wire. I don’t know if I like these or not, and none of these pieces are stitched together yet, but at least now, I have an idea of what the finished Basilica will look like… It really has taken shape!

Now, I think I can finally move on to beading the next subject in my sinking St. Mark’s Square painting – the Campanile. Hope I have enough beads!😮
