An Owl Encapsulated
I used encapsulation to tat a 'bezel' for this glass bead owl. The bead was made by my sister-in-law, Clare Gaylard. I wanted it to look as though the owl was sitting in a flowery tree. The great thing was, I could hide the beginning and end threads inside the bead. I'm still experimenting with encapsulation and have found that one of the problems is having so many thread ends to deal with.
