created this project inspired by a Mosaic school in Friuli – Italy. O visited it last year and I was impressed of the diversity of using stone and glass to create dimension and imagery. I made an abstract design, using terracotta colour seed beads. The background I filled with small seed beads creating an illusion made with sand, weaves of sand swirling around.
Name of stitch, stitches used – bead embroidery and couching beads and metal thread

Name of products used, size and material – Toho seed beads (mosaic background – 15/0; Main design and finishing 11/0)

overall size of piece – width 28cm, high 48cm

time to complete more than 6 hours/day for 56 days

Blue victorian purity necklace


I am found of the Victorian age and I find an excellent challenge to design this “lacenecklace. I beaded a lace base and I embellished it with silk ribbon. The pendant is beaded encasing a shell coin, embellished with blue crystals, The pendant has two sides and can be worn both sides. One is more embellished with crystals, the other has an star beaded ornament. The necklace is a choker style, to be worn aground the neck. The ribbon lace make it adjustable.
8 working hours.
Materials used: shell coin, blue- silver plated crystals, Miyuki seed beads, silk ribbon.

Venice Carnival Necklace


Middle Age Spring_3

I created a free form needle work with beads,

Middle Age Spring_4

In a stumpwork embroidery style I decorated the beadwork work with coiled wire making accents and interesting points.
I tatted with dark red wool the edges to approach the crewel style of the embroidery.

The laces are tatted to making the necklace adjustable. It remembers me of carnival of Venice
Dimension: 15x 12 cmThis necklace uses several nuances of pink, dark red and purple, golden and topaz, but you can order your favourite.
This necklace took 12-14 working days.

Gingo Tatted with beads pendant

I was counting beads and knots all the previous day trying to create a tatting design. I took a break and i made this simple but “autumnish” and warm pendant. Using amber colour beads and silk golden thread i tatted the inside part of the leaf. I used green cotton thread for the edges and the lace.
Dimension: 3x6cm, Adjustable lace.

3 tatted layers necklace


 

I designed a 3 layers tatted necklace.

First layer, the dark blue is tatted using only fiber, the second one is connected by AB indigo seed beads. I used a turquoise fiber.

The last one is filigree tatted using a light blue and seed beads.

The laces are tatted and the necklace is adjustable. Very light and elegant.

Purple silk filigree tatting earrings


 

I was fascinated when I first sow the tatting jewellery and

 

I order a beautiful book from the great teacher Nina Libin.

I studied and worked the technique so finally, after several blouses edges and brooches I accomplished a real filigree piece.

 

I equally love the simple thread tatting and the beaded tatting style, they taught me another way of weaving off the loom.

 

 

Thank you!

 

 

August challenge


As usually each month comes with a new challenge in bead weaving.

Golden seed beads as the glowing summer sun and red crystals as the setting sun entering the sea.

I made a lace beading design for the May Etsy Bearweaver’s challange. The theme was “nautical” so i thought of sea and weaves and…Venus, the goddess. I made a masterpiece from a shell laced in different beads – sea colors – the shell from where the goddess is going to appear. The weaves of the sea are in a degrade range of blues. The foam around the shell is white and then deep in the sea the colors go from turquoise to light green to dark green and dark blue.
The lace is done around white beads of coral.
