The other day, I dropped off my beaded portrait of Dr. Geoff White at Central Square Eye Care. This portrait was created using tiny glass seed beads, felt, and recycled eyeglass lenses. My beadwork will be on display at 3 Central Square, Cambridge, MA, indefinitely. If  you happen to be in the neighborhood, do stop by and take a peek! This is also a very cool place to get a new pair of specs. I just ordered a pair of purple Lafonts. Can’t wait to receive them! 8)

Beaded Hair & Eyeglass Frames

Today, I think I finally finished the beadwork for the portrait (of my friend, the optometrist)  I’ve been working on! I stitched silver bugle beads around my recycled eyeglass lenses to create frames. Then, I stitched gray, brown, and gold twisted bugle beads for hair. So far, it measures  9″ x 7.5″. I think its a pretty close rendition of my original sketch!  Now, the next step is to mount it to a canvas somehow… How do you think it looks? 8)
