“Queen’s gambit” and Hama bead portrait of Beth Harmon

The end of the year is marked by Hama beads. After the Professor from the “Money heist” series, it is time for Beth Harmon, the heroine of the Netflix hit. “Queen’s gambit” is an immersive miniseries about a genius chess player based on the novel by Walter Tevis. Thanks to this production, chess returns to favor, and its sales break records all over the world. We also have a chess accent and this is how the Beth Harmon portrait was created from Hama beads 😀

This time I did not arrange in rows, but started with the hair and then moved to the face. Finally, I made the chess board background and clothes.

Finally, iron the beads through baking paper. Set the maximum temperature and slide several times till the beads melt together.
