My labor of love

This is a bead tapestry I made over a several-month period. Mainly because I kept getting called to work full-time, and would have to put it away for a week or two in order to keep up with daily necessities.

It has over 28,000 Delica seed beads in the body of the tapestry alone. There's about another 3,000-4,000 in the fringe along the bottom.

The picture is a painting by Henri Rousseau, called Sleeping Gypsy. I really like the way this came out.

It is available for purchase at my etsy shop.

This is a close-up of the tapestry.
