Frame for WPC


back up ALL 8-07 248 (2)CRAFTS 017 (2)

With Zen Bead Embroidery, there is a ton of fairly relaxing (if you do it right) work, but it can sometimes leave you with just a pile of confusing colors and patterns.

Often, the “Frame” is what turns it into a piece of art…

I have to say that I loved doing the embroidery above but when it came to framing, I was clueless and had to go to professionals for help.

I was really happy with how they framed my pieces. (Please forgive the photography. That was definitely NOT professional.)

Thought a blog might help me develop better writing habits so I could finally finish my book, 16 years in the writing, but so far it's mostly photos and FUN!

    1. Thank you so much. Sometimes it is hard for me to claim beauty I have made but with these two pieces, I can see it. I have made each of the really important people in my life a once-in-a-lifetime gift…not for a birthday or anything, just for love. These are both examples. The one with the giraffes was for my very best friend, who collects giraffes and at the time did not believe there was a soul mate out there for her to connect with. And the other for an “adopted” daughter who spent a lot of time at sea. I included in hers several buttons, trinkets and beads from my ancestors, so as to pass on that heritage to her.

      1. That makes them even more beautiful and they look as if they have been made with so much love. What special gifts they are from one special person to another. Much love to you πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸΎπŸΎ

  1. Love it! I think it’s great. And what do you mean’if you do it right’? If it happens, whatever you are doing as your technique it’s working. Keep at it!

    1. And you are so sweet. If I do these right (correctly) there is no patience required as the process itself becomes timeless. I lOVE teaching this particular beading class to people who think they can’t do anything creative. The process itself is bigger than artistic ability and I’ve never seen one that isn’t just beautiful!
