Beaded-leather-gala-mask by Beadmask Beaded-leather-gala-mask by Beadmask
My client requested something very similar to the mask that I created for the 2011 Layne's Legacy/Beading for a Cure challenge. This one uses the same colors and overall style, but it includes a LOT more Swarovski crystal beads as well as Swarovski pearls and vintage Swarovski rivoli's. It also makes use of freshwater pearls, Czech glass, Japanese glass seed beads and one very unusual vintage brass filigree.

Basic beadweaving and fringe techniques, all beadwork is sewn through the handcrafted leather base and backed to protect the stitching.
