Adding Character Using Beads for Lift!

A few more stages, including the addition of a ‘3D’ wing to recreate a more realistic feel of the butterfly, have been completed.


After hand weaving a wing, using the same colors and sizing larger then the one in the beaded panel, I stitched the one edge, of the butterfly wing securely. To complete this lift and secure the opposite side, but not sew down, I attached the other side of the wing by including a 6mm Permanent Metallic Silver bead.


This will give the wing the ‘lift’ I wanted to keep, and allow it to stay secure enough that it won’t be ‘flapping’ around, while wearing the bag. This is a technique I do often, in my 3D building, adding beads underneath!


I have also completed a ‘beaded spiral’ and beaded some bead tubes, to finish the strap. The beads in the spiral are 8mm cut glass, matte finish. I love how they give the texture, in this spiral. I also used them in the center of two bead tubes! These, along with stones and gems I purchased and showed earlier, I will string the entire strap and secure.

The bottom of the bag is also closed, at this point, and I’ll be fringing it with a short fringe, to include all the colors of the bag.
