Dreadlock Textile Beads

After making Dreadlock Paper Beads I just finished some textile beads.

For these beads I made a »lace« using tiniest fabric and thread scraps (mainly silk dupioni) and water-soluble stabilizer. After sewing the beads together, I put them on chopsticks, dissolved the stabilizer and coated the fabric with wallpaper paste in order to stiffen them. A day later I painted and embroidered them with glass beads.

I think, I will attach each bead to a coffee dyed card using a thread.
