About the Kit...

I love flowers! The challenge for me in this piece was to construct a tiny flower using one thread.

Bead Embroidery has been used to embellish and decorate clothing since the dawn of civilization. In both Russia and China, remains have been found of bead embroidery dating back thousands of years. In more recent history, bead embroidery has been used to decorate religious items, formal attire, and household objects.

Bead Embroidery is such a versatile stitch that all beads are game! If you were working on a large wallhanging, larger beads would be appropriate. Conversely, if you were working on a necklace orbracelet, youwould want to use beades that are proportionate to your project. Within those guidelines, any type of bead (bugle, seed, delica, drop, etc.) would enhance the dimensionality and texture of your piece.

We create a canvas, decide how to give form to this canvas, plan a design, and embroider that design onto our formed-canvas. The challenge is always to achieve a contemporary, artistic look to your piece -- one that has a sense of movement, dimensionality, a use of materials that makes the ordinary 'noteworthy', and good technique.

In this piece, I wanted to create a garden of daffodils. The challenge for me was to create 3-dimensional flowers using brick stitch, and how to smartly incoporate these within my formed canvas, that is my cuff bracelet.

This bracelet involves creating a netted base, and then adding a second layer of netting as embellishment. I envisioned a bracelet with a lot of textural and color variation embellishment on the surface, to give the feel of a cobblestone walkway. Since I wanted the clasp to look like it was an organic extension of my cobblestone walkway, I decided to make the clasp, in part, using the Netting Stitch. The Netted bracelet is very fluid, and easy to wear. It is a casual piece.
