This is called my Faberge Gourd. Here are some pics of work in progress. This is before the beading has begun.

Thats so beautiful, all I ever do is make bird houses LOL
Jan...you have out done yourself!! I love your work...and you!! Jo
Thanks everyone for all the kudos. I just thank God everyday that he has given me the gift and know how to do the work I do. I also ask him everyday to watch over me so I don't break something else on this poor ole aching body. Hehe. So far, he has been listening and answering my prayers. At least since October when I broke my wrist. I guess I had forgotten to thank him for my good health up to that point. It pays to be humble and grateful.
Merry Christmas to all of you and please be safe and watch out for the crazy drivers that think they have wings and can fly out of cold icy conditions.
Jan, You are very blessed to have such talent.....God did shine on you :) Your work is stunning!
I'm like Jasminesmom, all I can do is paint birdhouses.
You have a safe & blessed New Year!
