Shining Jewels Bead Embroidery

This is an early attempt at bead embroidery. I found an illustration in an old book that I used as a pattern.

I printed to heavy cardstock, and embroidered onto that. In the end, I was concerned that the stitches would tear through the well-punctured paper. I have since mounted it to a piece of copper screen, then glued that to upholstery fabric. Now, I bead onto stiff interfacing, a much better base.

In progress, beading over image colored in Photoshop and printed to glossy paper.
