Beaded Wall Mosaic Update
I've been working on the new mosaic wall in bits and pieces. It's not a big priority right now so it's not getting a lot of attention but I have made a little progress.
First I worked on the top edge. Originally I had drawn half circles to create a series of arches but I could find tile bits I liked in my stash to fill it in. But while I was searching I kept moving 3 sheets of these leftover tiles out of my way. Eventually I realized that they were the answer. I got the arched effect but much easier!
I also got a few beads done too.I think I'm really going to love this section!
You might be wondering about the one gold bead all alone there. Remember that these are made from leftover bits from the big wall. When I dumped out the gold bits here I knew I had to find a small bead and that one seemed the best fit. I think I had about 5 small pieces of that leftover after this so it was the perfect size and shape.
This one was really easy! I think my Mom gave me a few of these geode slices for the wall and I've finally found the perfect use for them.

this is going to be as neat as the wall you just finished. What a great idea to use up the left over bits that you have

I love the first wall but I think I'm going to love this one even more! What a fabulous way to include your love of mosaic and pottery and glass in such an architecturally wonderful way!

Isn't it funny how we often don't see a perfect solution when it is right in front of us! The top border is great!

I love strings of beads ... around my neck, on Christmas trees, and on quilts! Now there is a new way to love strings of beads!
