It all started with Sherry Serafini.
I have seen her in a YouTube video which attracted my attention. She embroidered plenty of little tiny beads on a fleece.
In 2011 Sherry Serafini published her book “Sensational Bead Embroidery” which I bought. The necklaces and bracelets she created (and still does) are gorgeous. Each piece is a highlight.
I once started with threading glass beads making simple necklaces – always on the run for something more extensive I was caught by her work. And I began buying beads (Rocailles) in every colour!
This work is such a joy and relaxation. Even if one piece of Embroidery takes months.
I do not sketch my work beforehand. I just put beads together in a color combination I like, grab a piece of fleece and start.
