The first picture is of my entry in the SDAI "Holiday Trees" gallery exhibit. I should get at least "third place", seeing as only two other submissions were received by the deadline. The tree frame is from Ikea; 366 leaf beads, three monkeys and a star bead are wired on and the wire is secured to the frame with floral tape. The charm is a genuine Tibetan Buddhist iconograph of Gautama Buddha at the conclusion of the meditation in which he attained Enlightenment.
The second picture is of two of the three "Salong" vases I've beaded, with artificial flower arrangements.
