This last year, I discovered bead embroidery, thanks to Bead & button magazine's articles on that subject
This little purse was my very first attempt at bead embroidery. It is mostly worked in Japanese 14/15's.
This design came from a pattern by Robin Atkins

This design is contained in the wonderful inspiring book, BEADED EMBELLISHMENTS by Amy C. Clarke and Robin
Atkins. I'm sure that without this book I would never have attempted this project or the ones that followed.
