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!
