This book in the Lark Jewelry Beadweaving Master Class series is the one which sucked me into the art of beadweaving.
After browsing through the book I kept seeing images in my mind of fantastic earrings, pendant’s with eyes, reproductions of flowers, incredible clasps. I realised beadweaving isn’t just bracelets and necklaces. It was a whole area of artistic exploration and will keep me busy for uncountable hours in the future.
We are re-photographing many of our threads for the online store. While I was learning all about how to use Camera Raw in Adobe Photoshop (oh my!) I realised how lovely this fine thread is for hand applique. Originally it was introduced as a bobbin thread but quilters found it worked perfectly for the tiny stitches needed to applique their pieces down to a background.
