This is truly beautiful and original.  Is it on a backing? 

I do a lot of complicated free form bead weaving but not on backings.  I have some in my Etsy store wildbraidart.etsy.com and some on my website wildbraidart.com and some on Flickr.  I am variously known under my own name of Marlene Vidibor and my professional art and jewelry name wildbraidart.  You can google me too.

Marlene,

Thank you for the kind words.

Yes, it is backed. I embroidery it onto a piece of stiffy felt, than I back the whole thing with either ultra suede or some form of real leather.

I do all the designing  as I go, meaning I have no set order or design in mind when I start out. I put my focal beads down, and from there the beads are the boss, I just follow them.
