Woven Bead Fairy

Day 216 – Woven Bead Fairy

Bead weaving and bead knitting are favourite techniques of mine to use. I came across bead knitting a few years ago and really enjoyed it. I then started experimenting with bead weaving as well as creating my own designs.

I decided to weave the gold and white seed beads onto some silver card using some clear fishing wire.

Day 14 – Wired Fairy

Using some fine florist wire, I twisted and tweaked it trying to manipulate it into a fairy shape. Each piece of wire is only 7 inches long so it was extra challenging trying to disguise the entwined wires. This little one is about one inch tall standing up and about 3/4 of an inch sitting down. So far the smallest fairy to date.

I couldn’t resist sitting her on a jar of fairy dust…
