Fabric Beads

Standard

Fabric Bead Jewelry… yet another creative use of fabric scraps!

There are so many creative uses for fabric; the potential is close to limitless.  Some of you may be familiar with my fabric mosaics as seen on “My Other Blogs”.  Making fabric mosaics produces a lot of scrap fabric and I am always looking for ways to recycle of the leftover pieces… and from this, fabric beads came into being.   I create little bundles and bind them with complementary accent thread.

I especially like vintage beads and use them whenever I can to create interesting necklaces and matching sets of earrings.  Here are a few examples of my work.  I’ve had success selling in a local salon… woohoo!
