101  Re: Anyone Bead Weaving? in Beads: Discussion and Questions by sophieangele on: July 30, 2006 04:08:29 PM
Another chronic illness beader here Smiley I swear they keep me sane!

I love beadweaving because there are some truly beautiful patterns out there, and because each amulet/panel you make is like a mini canvas, a little work of art.


I get the same calm feeling as when I'm oil-painting - it's therapeutic when I'm in pain, or my head is fuzzy. (though my petterngoes all wrong when I try and bead while brainfogged!)

 I think there is also something quite soothing about hte repetition, watching something slowly take shape, piece by piece, in a way you don't really get with stringing or even things like netting. woven panels or bags can also be used to showcase embellishments and beading virtuosity Wink

102  beaded pot/vessel - with pics! in Beads: Completed Projects by sophieangele on: July 29, 2006 11:47:33 AM
My most recent project has been making this beaded trinket pot. I made it in matsuno size 8s, and it was quite hard to get right - I'm still not quite happy with the tension and stuff.
I do like the stripes though!

Lid on:

Lid off:

It was made with instructions from a Bead and Button magazine - I think you can buy it on their website actually. But now I've got the basics, I reckon I could do other shapes as well, by using the same principles.

Any comments/criticisms gratefully accepted!
