Using a variety of beads and colored wire, I have been decorating small gourds. The beads are threaded onto the wire and woven in a random weave filling in the area of the gourd that has been cut away.
A small battery operated votive candle inside the gourd can create a twinkling glow to the colored glass beads.
I first learned this technique from Vickie Hartman at a workshop in Bedford, PA.
