I got the idea from a book called Netted Beadwork by Diane Fitzgerald. The technique is called Sea Moss. I love it, and I was able to incorporate the beautiful lampwork bead into it.
There was a mishap that has upset me and I now have repair work to do. Several of the spines broke off of the seahorse. I was so careful with this and so upset when it happened. Rather then glue the spines back on, I am going to sand down the areas and re varnish it and just leave the three spines that are there. I will not sell a glued piece, so I will not do a glued piece for the auction.
