Although I'm not a big drinker, shot glasses are always on my beading table. They are just perfect for keeping the colors separated as you work.
The flower is the same design I learned in the Native American flower board sampler that I posted about back in October.
Before I added the scallop edge it was really plain and I toyed with putting a random spinkling of beads all around or a border above and below the motif, but then that seemed to overwhelm the design. I'm glad I didn't add anything else - the border is enough pull it all together.
I've made a new year's resolution to work on Twigs at least once a week.
He seems very happy!
