The soup was delish as well as the people running the event.

Charmed Brooch

DSC08840, originally uploaded by mossnbeads.

Look at these brass safety pin style brooches.
I have been making a lot of reclaimed work and wish to continue to do so until the inspiration is gone and moves on to the next need.
Obsession in the creating process ebbs and flows for artists. I have been like that my entire life in art and cannot understand the concept of staying with one style, medium or palette for years on end.
Right now it is playing with antique, vintage and retro components and then hopefully I can get back to bead embroidery for I would like to dive into bead paintings playing with some new ideas swimming about in my head.

Beaded Brooch class sampler

I am preparing for my beaded brooch class for next week. You all have seen some of my sample pieces during the last month and the last couple weeks I have almost completed a sampler of bead embroidery stitches. It is nothing intricate, I just wanted to inspire my students to try something different.
It includes single stitch, backstitch, couching, boucche, edging techniques, spangling, blanket stitch variations, setting in a cabochon, lazy stitch and cross stitch w/beads.
Crazy quilting is one of my in awe loves and I have wanted to get more into applying that to my freeform bead embroidery work. I feel with the beaded brooches you can have immediate satisfaction in this small piece of texturally stitched wearable art.

Almost finished with this brooch. I used backstitching, tubular peyote, fringing, bocche stitch and then connecting the backing with a 3 bead picot. The bulk of the seed beads are 11's, some 8's and then the 4x4's around the face cab. I am going to attach a silver dragon fly to embellish her bottom. Posted by Hello
