Beads, Beads, and More Beads

I have been busy just beading away. I have beaded jewelry onto my cloth representation of Kuan Yin and started work on her headdress. I looked up a simple tutorial on the Internet on how to make french beaded flowers and used the technique to make the petals for her headdress. I also plan to use this technique in the creation of the lotus petals for her to rest on.

On top of all of this beading, Barbara Lukas was so kind to teach all the members of All Dolled Up in Ottawa how to knit/crochet wire and beads into jewelry. I thoroughly enjoyed her presentation and completed this necklace using the techniques she taught. I'm sure I will create a few more when I have a little more time.


  1. The beading is beautiful! You're going to end up with one awesome doll!!

  2. Marla,
    Another wonderful work of art in progress. Kuan Yin is so beautiful! I always love your colors and attention to the details! You definitely put your heart and soul into everything you work with! Les
