Bead Embroidered Cuff Bracelets
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.
Shibori Silk Bracelet
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.
Saby Beaded Embroidery Collar
This piece consists of a bead embroidered collar attached to a twisted herringbone cord. This necklace was inspired by a fellow beader, Saby, who kept nudging me to try the twisted herringbone. The colors were inspired by the druzy cabochons.
Fabric Necklace Set
This jewellery piece is made from a special authentic fabric that is usually used for scarves in Anatolia. Flowers are very important in this fabric and also symbolise the relationship between nature and women. The necklace and the bracelet are made from 2 layers of fabric and in between there is thin fiber. After the […]
Heart Of The Ocean Necklace
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 is my entry “Burlesque Butterfly” for the Challenge of Beaders United. The theme was Wings. I had this butterfly for some time, and the idea of attaching it to leather was already in my head. Initially I wanted the butterfly just surrounded by beads, but that is not me, I ended up covering a […]
Grand-plaque Embroidered Necklace
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!
A White Dream
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 […]
Bohemian Beaded Cuff
Memory wire bracelet incorporating freshwater pearls, mother of pearl beads, glass beads, handmade fabric beads, and a bead embroidery panel. I wanted to create a fun, easy to wear piece with an eclectic feel.
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 […]
Ocean Treasures Beadwork Necklace
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 […]
Treasures In The Woods Beadded Cuff
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 […]
Pink Copper Goddess
A beautiful goddess in pinks and copper. I embroidered her with copper iris colored glass beads, with bits and pieces from other jewelry parts for her crown which has a fabric pink flower rosette and mother of pearl. Inside is black felt and back is black leather. The same coordinating beads around the edges. Pink […]
Faith Cuff Bracelet
This bracelet is made with a cabochon, amethyst, and brass and purple seed beads. This bracelet won the third prize in a contest about faith. I used a Buddha, a cross, an angel, but also things out of nature, because nature is very important to me.
Autumn Splendor Necklace
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 Embroidery Necktie Necklace
This necklace was made in crazy-quilt style with pearls, seed beads, and glass beads embroidered on cloth.
Violet Embroidered Fantasy Necklace
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 […]
The wings are kept in resin. I glued them onto Stiff Stuff and surrounded them with very small Miyuki Delica beads and rocaille seed beads . The back is finished with dark green Ultrasuede and a brass brooch pin.
Fall Steampunk Collar Necklace
In this lovely necklace, I used clay cabochons with citrine stones in them, Swarovski stones, Miyuki beads, delica, rocaille and bugles and steampunk elements.
Dragonfly Billabong Necklace
Dragonfly Billabong is a representation of the centrality of water in Australia, a country where droughts feature often with a few “good” years thrown in between in order to make us forget. I used Lacy’s Stiff Stuff as the foundation. I dyed the white foundation with permanent black dye powder mixed into water and let […]
