Beading...

You may have noticed that my recent posts are about beading. No, I haven't gone over to the dark side!


It's because I've a piece in mind that will require extensive beading, and I haven't got clue one about how to go about it. I mean, I know how to sew a bead on, but I also know that it takes more than that.

I decided that the best way to learn how to bead was to actually do so; so I joined The Bead Journal Project. It's a group of beaders that commits to making one project per month and posting about it.

And I also took a two day beading class at BeadFX with Anne Marie Desaulniers.

So, here's my January contribution. Just a wee bit late (lol) as it turned out to be much more time consuming than I originally anticipated.

I've also been working on a commission which has been taking up much of my time!

As I'm just a beginner, I've got loads of room for improvement, but I'm very happy with it.

Talk to you later!

Ah Kit! Beads!!! I never imagined I could get into beading, but there is something about those small, shiny twinkly things that is addictive.

I've yet to take a class. I've watched a few videos and think I really ought to to learn some of the stitches. Peyote anyone?

But the possibilities in textile art are endless!

Looking forward to seeing more. Xx
