I was very much into beading before I started machine Embroidery. I thought I would show you some of my necklaces – you can see where I started incorporating Free Standing Lace Embroidery into my beadwork! Experiment with combining crafts you love.
Beads are easy because there are so many ways to add beads to your embroidery. You can go all out as I did below and make jewelry from your embroidered Free Standing Lace Medallions, or dot beads (sew them or glue them) around a fantasy embroidery to add sparkle to the sky or ground or add to the characters costumes. Add fringe at the bottom of a wall hanging with beads the colors in the embroidery.
If you like yarn, this too can be incorporated. You can crochet or braid a necklace cord for a medallion. Add fringe to a wall hanging – with or without beads. Cut small pieces of appropriate fluffy fibers to add to the landscape of an embroidery. Outline by couching an appropriate fiber or yarn around elements in the picture.
