This is a grouping of three bead embroidered cuff bracelets created using different types of fabric, leather, suede, glass seed beads, freshwater pearls, glass beads and semi-precious jade chips. I love bead embroidery because it feels like I’m painting with beads.
For the first time I tried working with Shibori and I love it. I tried a combination with Swarovski stones, Miyuki beads, freshwater pearls and Swarovski pearls. They matched perfectly with the beautiful colors of the Shibori ribbon. The back is finished with green ultra suede. The lock is magnetic.
The cabochon I used was my inspiration for the entire bead embroidery necklace. I used Swarovski crystals, beads and pearls. The freshwater pearls and shells I found on the beaches during holiday. The back is finished with ultra suede. The clasp is also my own design and made with a Swarovski rivoli, O-beads etc.
This embroidery necklace is made with cat-eye cabochons, fresh water pearls, Swarovski crystals, and 11/0, 6/0 seed beads. Covered with leather….no toggle. Attached to a spiral rope necklace. I enjoyed making this necklace and it’s going to be hard to let it go. I love all my pieces but this one is my baby!
I used pearls in diferent sizes, fish scales, mother of pearl, antique beads, and antique swade leaves. I embroidered all of this onto an antique piece of material. In the back I used a fine piece of bronze in the same shape, covered by grey velvet, and used some memory wire inside to help keep […]
I made this Seahorse necklace for a contest in the Netherlands with a Fantasty theme. Its partly beaded on stiff stuff, with ultra-suede on the back. I used a lot of miuyki rocailles in different sizes, vintage brass flowers and freshwaterpearls. On the left side are the waves of the water, the right side are […]
This necklace represents my love of the ocean and the beach. It began with a handmade lampwork cabochon which I surrounded with several colors of seed beads, glass pearls and Swarovski crystals. The upper part of the necklace is sky blue jade and the fringe is a gathering of freshwater Biwa pearls, glass pearls, Swarovski […]
I love to combine different materials and colours in jewelry. So this bracelet is made with Fimo cabochons, pearls, lucite flowers and of course Swarovski. The beads are beaded on stiff stuff, with a cuff within. I got my inspiration when I saw the cabochons. Suddenly I got a picture in my head of walking […]
The centerpieces of this necklace are Tazwood cherry burl cabochons with subtle inlays of turquoise. They inspired me to create Autumn Splendor. I first beaded around the cabochons, and then with a netting technique and embroidery, blended two sizes of wooden round beads, six colors of seed beads in three different sizes, as well as […]
Bead embroidered cuff and necklace made from rough opals (polished by myself), charoite, amethyst, pearls, swarovski, silver beads, rainbow moonstone beads, purple jade, violet glass beads (roses) and Miyuki Delicas. For the base I used Lacy’s Stiff Stuff and a blank brass collar and cuff. To make this whole set, including polishing the opals, takes […]
Kaleidescope Cuff is a celebration of colour, form and texture. I started off with a brass blank interior and covered this with pink Ultrasuede. I try to avoid using dressed leather as some people are allergic to the dressing. The Ultrasuede has been glued down with industrial strength glue and cut slightly larger than the cuff […]
I started off with some Lacey’s Stiff Stuff as the bead embroidery foundation. I dyed it to a suitable shade of black. I had a beautiful African turquoise cabochon which I had stashed away, waiting for the right moment of creativity to spark. I sewed different semi precious stones around the cabochon, choosing muted tones that would […]
A necklace inspired by Verdi, the Magic Flute. I learned this bead embroidery technique in a book by Heidi Kummli and Sherry Serafini. The cabochon face, was done by me in cold mass of glass, and painted. The materials I used were Miyuki seed beads, Czech bugle beads, pearls, rocailles, and fire-polished beads. Some decoration, […]
I started by gluing the white resin rose to the leather, and then embroidered around it with white seed beads, crystals and pearls. I backed the creation with camel-colored leather. The necklace is strung with white beads of stone and resin as well as crystals of different sizes. It is about 20″ long.
