Pastel Beads - Textile necklace of knitted, lace and embroidered fabric beads
Love this


A pretty necklace featuring three types of hand made textile beads, in shades of pink, blue and white.

A total of 15 textile beads (including lace 'ruffles') complete the design. The 'recipe' is as follows:

- 3 hand embroidered, fabric beads. A strip of eco felt is rolled into a cylinder and stitched in place. A strip of torn cotton fabric is wound round the felt inner. A white, cotton daisy is hand-stitched onto each bead

- 6 knitted spherical beads - a small portion of reverse stocking stitch knitting in wool yarns, in shades of blue and pink, stitched into a shape and stuffed with polyester wadding (in the case of the two smallest beads, the wadding is replaced with a spun cotton ball.

- 6 lace 'ruffle' beads. A length of white lace fabric is gathered into a circle and the ends stitched in place.

The beads, are strung on a cotton thread. A hand made blue cotton cord completes each side of the necklace which closes with a loop over a vintage button.

Length - 40 cm approx. ( this may be shortened to your requirements - please message me at purchase)
Length of beaded section - 19 cm approx.

My growing collection of hand made textile beads was the starting point for this item.
