Back to Beading


Denim embellishment or ornamentation, frillery, fancy work, gilt trim, bespanglement ... Anyhow, here's some bead and button embroidery on my denim jacket. Nice mother of pearl buttons, and alot of beads. I have been wanting to embellish this jacket for awhile, and finally got around to it. Not sure if I will stop here yet...so I suppose it is a WIP (work-in-progress) for now--- but still wearable while it evolves.



And for any of you Bead Journal Project folks who might be wondering--I have finished both the June and July pages, but I have decided to wait until September to show all three months at once.

Your embroidery on your jacket looks very nice. I like the buttons and the placement over the pocket. Good job on the market bags too.

Since I'm one who has been peeking, it's fun to have some previously unseen work to look forward to in September... Thanks!

Fun start on your denim jacket!

What lovely embellishment on your jacket! I love the idea of wearing it as you work so the work can evolve over time.
