Susannah Fetching Water (detail from Susannah at Her Bath)
Albrecht Altdorfer, German, 1526

This is a great piece, alternating wrapped (I bet they are wrapped and couched) black and gold or yellow beads. Tied in the back. There appears to be a line of beads along the top as well. Gonna make this next.
