Experimenting with a beaded box with a lid and 3 dimensional beaded sculptures. This took second place in the PBS Bead Retreat challenge 2017 “The Animal Within”.
Created with delica, seed, bugle, and pressed glass Czech beads and wire to suspend the queen and make her wings. The little bees are lampwork glass – so sweet and perfect with the Queen.
Here she is flying out of her hive followed by her little drones.
The hive has a proper lid which closes.
Isn’t she cute!?
