This is my latest bead embroidery project. This time I have more of an idea of what I want to do. The design is based on a Tolima style breastplate. I have always been inspired by Mexican artifacts. The original, which was made of gold, was pierced in a very interesting way, as you can see in the photo below. I will try and post more process photos as I go. I love the matte black AB beads. The colors are really lovely.
