After being gone for the Mother's Day weekend (which meant a week really), I didn't think I'd be able to do this week's inchie for InchybyInch but I made it after all.
This week's theme was faces so I took a button blank from which I had previously removed the shank and covered with a hand painted face and glued it to my inch. Then I peyote stitched around it first with size 6 seed beads, then 2-drop number 8's and finally a round of number 11's. I added the touch of 11's to the corners to carry the brightness out to the edge.
The inchie is sooo textural and has my favorite medium (beads) on it so I couldn't be more happy with it. Maybe I'll glue a magnet to the back of this one and put it on my fridge.
