Bead Embroidery for Brides & Masquerades

When I began beading in 2007 I swore to myself I would never sew beads. It just seemed too tedious and complicated.
This February my daughter asked me to make a beaded mask for a birthday party she was having. Although I had never done any bead embroidery before but thought I would give it a try for her, she is truly a gem. I had a great time and a new addiction was born that day!
Here is my Bridal cuff, the 5th cuff I have made and I just love doing these. I prefer to put the focal piece on and go freeform rather than draw out a design. I have a brand new collection of cabs now just waiting! Very exciting! And this from someone who swore she would never sew beads!
