Textile Jewelry: Embroidered Silk Dupioni Rings

Currently I make rings and bracelets matching the silk beads. Well, I’m still experimenting with the bracelets though.

The procedure is exactly the same as with the dread beads:

  • making a paper roll and lining it with fabric,
  • wrapping fabric stripes soaked in wallpaper paste on the outside of the ring,
  • letting ring dry for 1-2 days,
  • sewing fabric if necessary,
  • embroidering ring with beads and
  • varnishing.

For embroidering on stiffened fabric I am still looking for extra strong, but superthin beading needles. My use of needles is quite enormous. 😉
