I found myself on Pinterest again, this time looking at bead embroidery creations. All because I've had several requests for a class (and yes, three dates in October are on the schedule).
I wanted to find one site to highlight and provide inspiration, but I couldn't narrow it down. All I can do is encourage you to check out bead embroidery on Pinterest. Prepare to be amazed!
Tutorials are available of course, as well as patterns (often in a language other than English, but the photos and diagrams tend to speak for themselves). There really aren't any rules with bead embroidery -- just suggestions. After you play around with it you decide which materials and techniques you are most comfortable using, and sally forth.
So enjoy this preview -- then head over to Pinterest for the full course. Click on any of these photos to be taken to their Pinterest site.
