beadweaving beauties

I love the look of beadweaving, and the more I see of it, the more I like it.

My favorite artist right now is Patrizia Tager, from Israel.





Here's a necklace in her etsy shop right now -
I really love the "rope" look to it















Maybe I can learn this technique by making bangles, and see if I enjoy it. You've got to take pleasure in what you do! It looks like some equipment is needed. A loom? If anyone can give me pointers, I'd really appreciate it.

Here's some examples on Etsy, of different kinds of bangles.
This is an interesting one, with memory wire byMariannes :

I know memory wire bracelets are popular - I made two while sitting at a craft show, and they both sold that day!

saraaies crocheted a bangle with felt and beads:

AnnieandOlive covered beads with fabric (I hope that's right):

And then there's the seed bead bangles.
These bracelets look soft (is this seed beads on nylon rope?), by suburbanstash:
Fall into Autumn with this gorgeous beaded rope bracelet bangle African Style shades of Yellow Brown Gold

This bangle by singingbeads was hand crocheted- not sure what she used as a base, but I love the look.

And this traditional Native American bangle, created by beaglebeads, is with a beautiful diamond design

Beautiful bracelets! I attempted to use memory wire once...not good results.

Triz is by far one of, if not the most talented bead weaving artist I have ever known. I was looking somewhere else today and saw that piece you have in the first photo.

If I am not mistaken, she is totally self-taught.

thank you for featuring my Pretty in Pink Choker! :-) and for your kind words!!! :-) the only equipment needed for this choker is a crochet hook... I corchetted it using large beads and waxed cord

storybeader said...

thanks for sharing, triz. Wow, it is beautiful. Can't imagine following a pattern for that. Wow!

Stormy Designs said...

Wow, gorgeous work. I'm all thumbs, can't do stuff like that & greatly admire those that do.

Triz Designs said...

I forgot to mention in previous comment, as it was late at night :-)... but the turquoise piece on the left that I'm wearing I made following a Sherry Serafini pattern - it's not my design - the piece is beadembroidered :-)

That turquoise necklace at the top is absolutely stunning!

Story - let me know if you want any more information about bead-weaving! I love doing it - and I'm self-taught :D And no, I don't use a loom. :)

Great stuff! I've tried it but my fingers are too dumb to hold onto the tiny tiny beads let alone get needles thru them and weaving...

I can't get over that necklace- its amazing!
