Beginning Embellishment – Social Market for a Mirrix 2014 – by Julia L. Hecht
As I mentioned in my last post, I was inspired to try off loom bead weaving embellishments on my loomed piece, Deco Diamonds. Here I worked on adding a border using brick stitch. I am pleased with the outcome. But honestly, it was very time consuming, and I am bored with it. So, I have put it aside for now. I feel the need for a creative jump start, and some more technical hand holding. So I found a loom bead weaving class in my local community. I will be taking it June 22nd and 29th. It requires 7 colors, and I am using Miyuki Delica beads 11/0. I plan a sampler to see how the colors work together. I know from experience, that I can be surprised and not in a good way. Going to warp….
More on my sampler next time…
