I have been making art with beads for over four years almost exclusively. I take beautiful fan-art or images that I find online and pixelize them using either an iPad app or graph paper.

This particular creation is something I have wanted to make for years, but just couldn’t work up the courage because of the complexity and my hectic kitchen work schedule!

Finally, one day when my son was with his father and I had time off in between career moves, I sat down with my two cats (Lady Popfizz Fuzzybutt and Miss Molly), set up my boards and picked up my tweezers, and then I placed the first few beads, then a few more…

The end creation took a grand total of 7 hours and 43 minutes to complete. And now it’s ready to go on my bead art wall at home!
