Beaded Temari 5 x 3 Floral Dodecahedron

This new Temari grid is beaded over a floral tapestry upholstery fabric. Two separate grids layer across the ground fabric. The use of the skin that makes the sphere as a third grid pattern really appeals to me. ┬áSmall glass seed beads are hand sewn into the surface of the skin using the eye as the placing device rather than perfect measuring. Yes there are places where the “points” meet perfectly and places where they don’t. I like the variations as they allow me to see imperfections and appreciate how the beauty still becomes dominant.
