Well, once I encased the bead and re-shaped it, I then added, guess what, grape vines and leaves. The result is this bright and fun little bead I'm calling "Glowing Vineyard".
Since it was NOT designed as a wine stopper, it is much smaller than the rest of my beads for this week.
It's decorated with four bunches of two-tone (red and purple) grapes along with the vines and leaves that my vineyard beads are known for.
The background color reminds me of almost the glass color of a 7-Up bottle. I encased it in a number of directions, so the background has some texture to it, like the wind blowing that is rather cool.
I'll be adding this bead to my Etsy shop tomorrow, so I hope you can come take a look.
Have a great night, All!
