Maple Leaf Bagette

Private collection

The Maple Leaf Bagette was a commission. I am really pleased with the way it turned out. I like the neck strap especially, and the sort of hour-glass shape of the bagette. It was done in all earth tones, with shades of fall leaves, in a brick stitch. I was very careful to protect the thread from the sharp edges of the bugle beads. You can see that all of the bugles are padded top and bottom, by other beads.
