The ruminations of an artist on art & life...art quilts, beading, knitting, drawing, painting, printmaking, bookmaking are all my passions, I love to explore creating....

New Bead Crochet

New bead crochet--orange leaves and fringes....a choker to wear to my daughter's graduation...she's finished her Masters! and this just happens to go with the dress I'm wearing--so I finished it, just in time! and it seems only fitting that the big carved leaf was a gift from my other daughter....

Happy Graduation Kesia! and much Congrats from your Mom! you are precious and will give much to the world.

A note on technique: the free form fringes were added on after I completed the bead crochet.

Hi, these are beautiful, I've been experimenting with bead crochet necklaces too, (you might be able to see a photo here - http://www.fireseed.ca/?tag=bead-crochet

I'm curious, I've seen necklaces like these where the beads are increased in the centre of the necklace, so the tube gets thicker, I'm trying to find out how to do this and/or looking for at pattern, are you aware of any online patterns or instructions that teach how to increase the size of the tubes? thanks for sharing your work :)
