I Made a Vessel...




I know it's not a basket or a vase so it has to be a vessel, right? Actually, I saw a class at bead expo that looked like fun, but I don't happen to have an extra 150 bucks at the moment, so I thought I'd do my version for free...

I love how your vessel turned out. The colors are just wonderful. I had noticed the vessel you referred to and I must tell you that I like yours much much better.

hey...thanks for all the kind comments! The beauty of this kind of project is that everyone makes it their "own" and no two will look alike.

Now I'm hooked but good! Your vessel is fabulous!!!! I may need to do one soon. Thanks for posting. Oh, and no way did you need to spend $150 to take a class in this.... you've got it all on your own! Bravo!

Well, how cool is that! What do you have in the middle of your layers? Something like Timtex?

What dimensions did you make it? I covered the material and cut out shapes tonight. I really couldn't get it out of my mind!!! Oh, I am excited!!!! What till you see!
Mine is 3" across and approx. 4" high.

thank you all for commenting...this was my first attempt at beading something flat and then putting it together into a 3 dimensional form and it's great to get so many comments about it!
