Bead & Tapestry Cuffs »
InstructionsThis is my second finished try. This time I double-warped it, which I think gives it a cleaner edge.
Type of item: Accessory
Silk/cotton blend yarn, Railroad track/trellis/ladder yarn, Toho size 8 and 11 beads,
What was your inspiration?
Excellent instruction by Claudia Chase. And I can start using stuff from my stash.
What are you most proud of?
I think it will be when I learn to white-balance my camera and can photograph purple, but stay tuned:)
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Make sure you set up someplace comfortable where you're not hunched over. I also second the advice about using good light.
This technique seems to be very forgiving. I have some beads in my stash that don't meet my standards for regular beadwork but I think they'd be fine surrounded by fiber. Watch out for sharp edges on beads though.
