Bead plate

Old plate with a pattern of beads

The photo shows an old, cracked-glaze dinner plate decorated with beads.

The beads were stuck on with a competent glue, but every so often one falls off and I have to find the gap and stick it back.

The beads are from multiple different sources:  broken necklaces, bracelets too small for me, childhood presents, trades I did at school, the hoards of grandmothers and great aunts, rewards for challenges completed at Guide Camp …

A lot of the beads evoke memories.

The design is abstract, but there are flowers in there and a map of India (quite by chance; it was supposed to be a wisteria bloom). I enjoy looking at it both close up and at a distance.

I like to think it was a good use of my stray beads.
