leafbeadsI bought these glass leaf beads a while ago and just love them.  I was able to get them in a few different colors and they just feel wonderful because of their rounded edges and matte finish.  I’ve used them in the past in some simple strung designs that I felt came out very pretty.  However, in the back of my mind, I knew I wanted to try them stacked or layered in some fashion.

I took a bit of stiffened felt, my beading needles and thread, and just set out to play.  Here you can see some of my experimentation.  I’m not sure where I will end up with this.  Right now, I’m just enjoying the journey.
