Wine Dark Sea

Somehow, I always thought that the "wine dark sea' Would have been more burgundy but it really WAS the color of the background fabric on this piece. Finished it tonight --- made a lot of mistakes but I learned a lot about encrusted beading in attempting it.

The large blue "bead" is a glass fob meant to ward off the evil eye.

It is supposed to look a little like the buildings on Santorini (which we didn't get to see thanks to a storm) so I almost called it "Santorini Lost". But I think "Wine Dark Sea" is more appropriate!
