Tapestry inspiration


First tool I acquired when I started my jewelry carrier was a Mirrix loom.

A small vertical loom, the traditional design for weaving tapestries.

I wove first with threads and I learnt some basic techniques which I found very useful to develop in my further work with wire.

 

 

 

 

 

The second step in my loom discovery was weaving with beads.

I tried on my own designs plying with colors and shapes as in a mosaic work.

 

The third step I made was to weave with beads on the loom but

according a necklace pattern. this is most difficult because all the threads have to be woven into the work according to the pattern or be used for fringes in the lower part of the jewelry.

I chose an orange brown palette of colors and some items playing with the sun and the brightness of the nature. I used woolen threads for the thee tapestry, the movement of the children against a geometric background, the greek style inspiration of the necklace speaks about geometrical elegance. I hope you like them!
