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.. :)
