Off Loom Bead Weaving

I was searching for new techniques to incorporate into my designs, when I came across weaving techniques using needles and seed beads. it was quite interesting and the sheer variety of stuff that could be made was overwhelming...

But it took me ages to get used to securing the beads properly, and even the finished works would sag and droop... it was absolutely frustrating in the beginning, but instead of going for a 'daisy chain' I was drawn to weaves like the Russian Spiral...!!

I did manage to make three pieces,



I also made a bracelet with something like the Daisy chain. had to wing the number of black seed beads used. this was a custom design for a friend.
