Lacing beading necklace


 

I was very found of lacing style all my youth and I considered the ones are working it “un reachable” in skills and art.

Few month ago a theme of a challenge in Etsy Beadweaver’s forum was “Nautical” inspiration.

I chose to create “The Birth of Venus” using the lacing beading technique.

Using different tones of blue, green, turquoise and white i created the foam and the weaves of the sea.

As a pendant i used a shell where from the goodness is going to be born.

Each part of the lacing is a small flower around a white bead of coral.

I work for days to design and bead this necklace but i am very found with the result.

Available for selling in the shop.

Green Embroidered Mandala Hairpin


 

The shadows and the lights, the unknown and the mystery made me thinking of playing with only one element in my working: only with same color and kind of beads. The way i laid down or sewed together created the impression of dark and light, of truth and mystery. i designed these sashes (curved lines and rectangular) starting from a main circle. I added around many layers of circles in order to increase the design. On each side i added part of circles adjacent to the main circle.
The Hairpin is composed by the embroidery and the metal hairpin.
You can order the same design in different other colors!

Mandala embroidery


I was asked to embroider a special green sash for a traditional wedding and i was face to an interesting challenge: to use only one color of beads.Green Embroidered Mandala Sash

I decided to design a Mandala starting from a point, going on around with circles and details around the

circles. Only one color does not give you many choices so i developed the design using different stitches.

I created a lights and shadows design helped by the way of sewing the beads.

 Green Embroidered Mandala Hairpin

The shinning beads attracting the light were sown normally but the ones creating the shadows were sown facing the surface of the embroidery.

I was very pleased of my design and my achieved embroidery.

I made two different Sashes, a cuff bracelet and a hairpin using the same pattern.

Green embroidered maze sash


I created this embroidered sash for March challenge from Etsy Beadweavers Team. The theme was “Destination”.
I took it symbolic imaging a spiritual path of a maze. The maze symbolistic is well known so I embrace it happily. You start from one side of the maze looking for the right path, twisting and going round thus in the end to exit the opposite side, full of knowledge and experience. In my design the correct path is underlined using larger beads sown in a different way than the wrong path or the green bushes. I used my favorite shape of spiral and color of green Miyuki seed beads for the bushes walls, the sandy Miyuki seed beads are used to create the false paths and the golden large seed beads show the right path. The embroidery is designed to be worn as a sash. It is attached on a width free silk ribbon. It is possible to be worn at a wedding, or a similar special event. It comes over the waist and is knotted in the back in a bow or a simple nice knot.
Dimension: 16 x 13 cm. 16 hours work.

Materials used: Miyuki seed beads, silk ribbon
