After I finished the bead embroidery, I added beaded dangles. My intention was to suggest branches in the jungle, and I especially like the ones at the top that hang slightly over the tiger’s head.
I’m still wondering what to do about the necklace cord, but I’ll probably end up using braided black leather after all. But in the meantime, I have to finish the edges with tiny little whip stitches to hold the ultrasuede backing in place.
Despite my doubts about the shades of green I chose, I think this is pretty (if not fierce!)
