New Work with Triangle Beads

I like to work with Japanese triangle beads. They give the bead woven piece a nice and interesting texture. This is my last item I made using some to surround a nice glass bead to make a pendant.

I am now in the very beginning of my first embroidered work, and I can tell you that it is fun, although a bit difficult to me. I do a lot of unpicking while working, because I am not used to work with the backing material, and often bring my needle up in the wrong place… It's a bit annoying (but of course there is no other way to practice on this…) so I decided to take a breake and write a new post.. :)


  1. Smadar,

    I can't wait to see your new embroidery design.

    The triangle beads with the lampwork bead looks great!


  2. Thank you, Louise! I'm taking "baby steps" with embroidery work... ;)

  3. gorgeous as usual... and i just bought triangel beads, still don't know what to do with them... you've inspired me!!! thank you!!! :-)

  4. What a fabulous lampwork bead in your soothing and harmonious necklace!
    Do you make glass beads yourself?

  5. Very nice! Congratulations!

  6. Wonderful pendant! I like these colours, too!

  7. Thank you everyone :)

    Triz, I can't wait to see what you come up with the triangles.. :)

    Mags, I don't make glass beads myself, although I would love to, if only I had the spare time to try this art as well... :)

  8. Dear Smadar,

    This necklace is lovely and very delicate. I hope you feel better by now.
    Regarding the embroidery - maybe you should not expect from yourself to finish it so quickly. It may take a long process, but I am sure it's going to be worthy to go through it. Very often, before a burst of creativity, there are difficult "downs". I think the deeper they are - the more creative we are.
    You are doing right to make other jewels in parallel.

    Have a good day,
