That’s a lot of seed beads!

“One should either be a work of art, or wear a work of art”.

I stole this saying and will probably use it again…neither sentiment really applies with this picture, but it is the most seed beads you will likely see anywhere near me any time soon. And I think it falls into the “work of art” category.

My daughter is a freshman in high school and this was part of a Latin project that she worked on most of the weekend. Her dad and I helped with some gluing as it got a bit tedious (neatness really counts!), but Emma selected the drawing, traced and modified it for the mosaic, chose the bead colors and glued all the Cupid ones in place, along with much of the background. Great job, honey! (I’ll rant about school projects some other time).

(Yes, she did fill the gaping hole near the “P”). It is on an 18×18 stone tile and weighs a ton!
