Innovative stringing month on Beading Arts!



One of the first beading techniques that most people learn is how to string.  After moving on to bead weaving, bead embroidery, and mixed media techniques, some of us forget about that thrill that we got when we first learned how to string a pleasing necklace or bracelet.  We forget how exciting it was to learn how to finish off a piece with a polished-looking closure.

Never forget the basics!

All this month, we're going to revisit basic stringing and figure out ways to make our pieces unique!  I'll have a number of projects and featured artists for you, plus a fabulous vintage bead giveaway, all dancing around the issue of how to make your stringing projects unique.  Do you have a piece you'd like to share, or have you written up a tutorial for an innovative stringing piece that will help take our work to the next level?  If you'd like to share, please drop me a line at cyndi @ mazeltovjewelry.com (remove the spaces).

I love finding ways to make my pieces unique. I have one piece that might fit what you're talking about, although I don't necessarily think it's that different. But I'll be watching for your posts.

Kay, if you'd like to share your piece with everyone, I'd be delighted to post it!

I must be really strange because I never really got that much into stringing. I have a few pieces but I feel in love with knotting almost immediately. I really should revisit stringing though as I have some necklaces in mind that knotting just doesn't feel right for. I will be looking forward to this month.

Me - I went from stringing to wire sculpture and got stuck there. I drool over all your pieces of bead weaving, Cyndi, and think ... maybe someday, I'll give that a try. I'll drop you a line with a link or two to share. Thanks.
