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
