Title: Bead weaving and embroidery gallery Sept/Oct
Post by: Jolene on September 18, 2013, 08:18:58 PM
I finally have something to show in the bead weaving gallery. Carol Passaro gave a class on Beaded Bezels at the GBUK AGM and I got mine finished yesterday ;D

That's lovely, back will never be seen.  I cannot master bezelling.  Beaded or wirework.

Morning, I made a mirror for the dolls house last night with the little beads that Kayleigh sent me, some bead soup and a large hematite cab

Snicker - one of those sparkly things was stuck to somebodys bottom when she was beading at the hospital.  She dropped it and had a chemo nurse frantically looking for the glittery fing.  And it was on her booty.  ::) :P
Made me laugh  ;D

Well, I guess these are bead weaving although there aren't any seed beads in them - they're for a competition for 'statement earrings' made with entirely swarovski components. Being stubborn, I tried to make them with bead weaving stitches instead of wire... and refused to buy any new beads... resulting in lots of swearing and unpicking followed by painstaking counting of 2mm crystals to make sure I had enough for a matching (ish) pair of the dangly ones... worth it though  ;D
These are 'Kabuki'

and these are 'Dawn Mist'

Fingers crossed...
