New ornament

I had just completed another bookmark designed by Brigette Nettles when I went to Michael's and found this onion shaped ornament. It's really small. I switched to size 45 thread (#12 Perle cotton), worked the bookmark then added a top and bottom. The bottom is really level, it just photograped sideways. I'd love to post the pattern but since the main part is Brigette's design, I can't.
Amazingly, knowing my love of beads, there isn't one bead in sight. I could change that. I left a picot along the bottom edge of the center part to drape some beads if I find it necessary. What do you think?
