Kitchen Art

A study in white beads on a black and grey geometric pattern.
A modern piece that would go well in the kitchen, above the fridge, washing machine and microwave.
A single black thread worked in back stich was laid in a diagonal line from bottom left to top right. This was repeated from bottom right to top left until the even-weave canvas was covered.
I then outlined an hexagonal design using three black threads in the needle. Using a grey colour, I worked an alternative hexagon again using three threads per needle.
I wished to create a 'sainless steel' image. Accordingly, at each intersection, I used a white bead tied down by a silver metal thread.
I believe 1,540 beads were used in creating this design.
