Haz tu propio collar de moda!! / Vikguirao. Tutorial : Fabric Covered Beads | Georgina Giles. This tutorial will show you how to make beautiful little fabric covered beads. I wrote a fabric necklace tutorial last year which has proved very popular and this one is even simpler, with no sewing involved! You could make a pretty necklace or bracelet to match an outfit, use them to decorate a special present or even add them to a mobile. To make these sweet little beads you will need a selection of fabrics, scissors, beads, a darning needle, some glue, and a cocktail or kebab stick. You will only be using small pieces of the fabric so larger prints will show off their colours rather than the patterns.

I always use wooden beads because I like using natural materials and they have a lovely weight to them. The first step is to cut your fabric into strips. Next, take your first bead and squeeze a small blob of glue inside. Take your fabric strip and pop it into the hole in your bead, so that it rests on top of the glue. Now pop this to one side to dry.

After seeing Fashioning Felt, the terrific show she curated, I enlisted Susan Brown of the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum to serve as the juror for this book. We’ve been reviewing the images to include in the book, and I’ve come across some really exciting jewelry made with this extraordinary material!

Now, please don’t think the decisions have been made for the book–we’ve still got a loooong way to go before selections are finalized. Just wanted to share the fascinating things some talented artists from around the globe are making. » (Larkcrafts) * parution prévue pour l’automne 2011 Maria EIFE, a resident of the City of Brotherly Love, necklace Justyna Truchanowska (Dublin) – necklace Eun Yeong Jeong- ring – Jennifer Moss (of Kalamazoo) Chien-Ching Liao (Taiwan) – this piece incorporates felt so airy that light filters through Kristin Mitsu Shiga Jens A. Anke hennig: textile jewelry. Gossamer threads of colored nylon and silk, ancient long-forgotten braiding techniques and the gentle manipulations of an artist come together seamlessly in this collection of jewelry made by Germany’s Anke Hennig. By winding the flat braids of thread over and around themselves, Hennig is able to creates spiral of flowing, colorful, dimensional curves.

The results are light, breezy and easy to wear. “The underlying idea of my work is restricted to clear forms and the principle of sequences. Simple, flat braids are wound around and over themselves, to form a spiral and provide an unusual aesthetic in the third dimension. These pieces of jewelry have both appearance and a surface, making it hard to imagine their origin – a new interpretation of an ancient technique and an alliance of the traditional married to the innovative.” UMELECKY : Textile Bracelet Tutorial. Just a quick how to: You will need some... memory wire wire cutters round nose pliers scissors fabric strips or ribbon (1/2 to 3/4 in. wide and 1 yd. long) glue embellishments Cut a piece of memory wire 2 inches more than the circumference of your wrist.

Using the round nose pliers, curl a loop onto each end of the wire. Place a dab of glue next to one of the loops and anchor the end of your ribbon. Wrap wire tightly, overlapping as you go. When you reach the other loop add another dab of glue and anchor your ribbon at this end too. Wrap again in the opposite direction. When you reach the end or beginning, depending how you look at it...anchor with one final dab of glue. You can either leave them like this or add whatever you like. I apply a jump ring to each of the end loops to keep the charms and beads from sliding off.

Here are some made with torn strips of cotton textiles. You can see I over wrapped some with flax, hemp, ribbon and wire. Here you can see the jump rings and some beaded wire wrapping.

Notes from the Something: Necklace Tutorial (and a prize!) I have had a few requests to explain how I make the beaded crochet necklaces, and I have to admit I was reluctant! Because the work-to-impressiveness ratio is MINISCULE, and I don't want to reveal all my secrets ;) But it's time. Just promise me you'll still ooo and ahhh when I post one! The technique is actually super simple and straightforward.

The secret is in the materials! 1) Metallic thread - I like On the Surface New Metallics - you can buy it in a small 5 yard bobbin, which makes about three 3-strand necklaces, but I get the 100 yd spools here. 2) Teeny crochet hook - I use a 2.75 mm but any very small size works. 3) Glue - I don't love the one in the picture, I prefer the one below with the pinpoint precision tip. 4) Clasp - 2 clamshell doohickeys (the technical term), a hook, and a figure-8 thingy. 5) Beading needle - big eye in the middle 6) Beads (not pictured) - you can use pretty much anything within a size range.

The glue I prefer - just bought a new tube! Voila! Notes: DROPS Top in Cotton Viscose and Vivaldi. Necklace and bracelet in Muskat.
