Etsy BeadWeavers' June Challenge - Humor

This is my entry for the June Challenge, HOUSE for RENT with Garden View

The Story:
The Spider is looking for a place to live and she found this inviting little house. She is going to be happy here, since there is a colorful garden around it.

I made this beautiful brooch using a gray agate cabochon, framed with a bezel made with 2 mm red coral beads and size 15 seed beads from Japanese Miyuki in shades of lime green.

The Characters:
The Spider is made with genuine gray pearls and seed beads. The House is a stunning iridescent found shell. The Flower is beadwoven with 2 mm genuine pearls and orange-red seed beads. It is accented with small beaded leaves in dark olive green.

Here are all twenty-one entries for the challenge and they are spectacular! Please visit each entry to read their story, in order to find out how each of these pieces relates to the theme.
