From traditional to modern weaving


I am fond of textile and I like digging  deep in the past to understand where from the technique and design came.

One of the most ancient ways of working the threads is weaving it using different kind of looms.

There are carpets and fabrics woven in thin or thick threads used for domestic necessity or decoration reason.

Nowadays, in the country side the old ladies still work their rugs and carpets, even their weddings veils using the loom.

Still the jewelry domain embraced this “tool” and used it to create astonishing designs for jewelry.

I am proud to be the owner of a medium size Mirrix loom.

It is a vertical loom enveloped after the tapestry looms. I work on it my jewelry, especially my necklaces and purses and I enjoy very much both techniques with or without beads.

Here you are some of my tapestries woven using woolen threads and seed beads, following my original designs.

The patterns are available in my shop at Tutorials and patterns

The old modern lace


I am found of lace. The granny style of working the threads amaze me but I am not able to get the technique. But as I like the feeling and the look I try to use in my beaded work.

I give the lace aspect beading around a base and adding many layers and embellishment.

The fragile aspect of petals is underlined by the small beads kept in curved shapes.

Adding bicons in a flowers design give an extra gentle and feminine aspect.

The petals embellishment uses faceted crystal in aurora boreal shine.

The laces are woven in an alternative stitch: Russian spiral and herringbone.

I mixed the lace colors to keep a balance between the pendant and the upper part of the Jewelry. The beaded toggle is a nice finishing for the piece creating an entire beaded work.

Enjoy and get it Laced beaded flower necklace
