Textile Beads – sewed, embroidered and wired

I am back home sitting at my work table in Vienna again. I put aside papier mâché and dug out fabric, yarn, needle and thread. Well, obviously textile is still one of my favorite materials.

These long fabric beads I sewed by hand, embroidered with glass beads and added some silk wrapped Alpaca wire. Inspired by various video tutorials like for example Fabric Beads by Alma Stoller and my time in La Porta.

The making of these beads is quite elaborate, however it gives me so much pleasure. I will make some more and bring them to Rastas Naturales.
