lighthouse staircase


I took Terri Kahrs' suggestion and sewed this piece 
(one of the photographs from my previous post on beeswax)


I attached the words I wrote with a straight pin ....


Not just any straight pin though - this one has a paper bead that I made (and dipped in beeswax).
I made the bead from newsprint - do you see the word "free?" that was purely accidental, but meaningful don't you think?

More on the how to for paper beads (in beeswax) later this week :)

If you are interested in owning this piece, it is listed in my etsy shop.
