This is the May page in my series of encrusted bead pages–and the last. May is when our grass is finally green and the leaves will burst forth on our trees just before Mother’s Day. It is late here in NH, but all the more appreciated after a very snowy and cold winter.

I found these fantail fish at a local bead shop. I just had to make them swim on a silk fusion page. Is there such a fish as a fantail cat fish?

I am heavily influenced now by the spring blooms. I do love seeing the flowers popping out of the ground. The crocus are finally blooming with daffodils showing buds.

This butterfly is from the book The Beaded Garden by Diane Fitzgerald and is done with brick stitch. This definitely makes me think of the summer months to come.



  1. Nice job! I love the greens, and the butterfly is beautiful! 😀

  6. I’m glad you keep the beading simply on your silk fusion pages, as the fabric is just sumptuous!!! Your encrusted green piece for May is definitly full of hope and new beginnings!

  7. Gorgeous! I don’t think there is anymore to say than that. Gorgeous colors and beadwork. Those catfish are so special. I’ve never seen any before.
