bead journal project with clock gears


When I joined the bead journal project a couple of years ago it was because I wanted to bead like Robin.  She is so talented.  I quickly realized that I wasn't likely to ever bead/stitch like that.  I felt inadequate and made apologies for that.  This year I decided that I would not feel badly about the way that I do things.  I would take this project and do my own thing and feel good about it.  It has freed me up to think about beads in a different way.  So this month my 'beads' are clock gears and watch face.  Of course I had to include some regular beads as well!
The top photo is the whole piece.  Unfortunately I could not get the color right.  The bottom picture is a close up of the beading.  The color in the image is closer to correct.
