Harriet Tubman Medallion
Beadweavers know the joy of delayed gratification. It's the nature of the medium. Nothing happens quick with seed beads. But, these medallions I've been making are about as close as I get to instant gratification with seed beads. I've been turning all sorts of papers and graphics into beaded pendants. I can do a few a day. I make the bails as well, and even that is a quick twist of wire. The biggest challenge for me has been learning to work with computer graphics programs and learning the behavior of the different glues I need to use. The beading is a joy. My next challenge will be the marketing and posting on etsy. I am looking forward to seeing if these will do well as holiday gifts.
