I just finished this little guy and his strawberry, yesterday. The strawberry was hand-dyed. It doesn't show up too well in this photo. But the color graduates from a deep red near the tip to a lighter red with a hint of light yellow and green. near the top. The seeds are tiny size 15 beads. They were the perfect color with a cream colored center with a yellow clear glass overlay. I've had these beads for quite a few years. I never knew when I purchased them that they would come in handy for strawberry seeds. If you ever get the chance to travel to Northern California, you should check out Out On A Whim in Cotati. They have the best selection of beads ever. I just found that they have an online store, too ~ http://whimbeads.com/ I used to do a lot of beadwork on leather and they were the only store in Northern California that carried the small size 15 seed beads in a great number of colors and styles. I also used to do a lot of peyote stitch around plastic animals,too. It was quite a bit of fun. But my eyes aren't as good as they used to be.
Little William's eBay auction will begin Sunday night at 6:45pm PST. His reserve price is $135.00.
Thanks for looking,
