Embroidery and Beaded Earrings

I love Karen Ruane's wonderful embroidery and stitching arts!
The cloth above she breathed life into for her daughter.

Sometimes she even stitches on paper:

recently I won two of her buttons in a give away on her blog.
They arrived today and are quite elegant and beautiful
thank you Karen xo:

treat yourself to a visit to her Etsy Shop
and Blog
or join her Online Classes!

I thought I would share with your one of my other arts.... 
beaded jewelry.
This will be the last pair I make like this
a rare delight:
