I hope you may like my mixed media textile art beads

Each bead is hand made by me from painted Tyvek which I manipulate with heat to achieve the interesting shapes and textures. The colours are built up in many layers over as many as four or five stages to achieve the look I am after. The colours have a sheen to them that reflect the light and each and every bead is one of a kind. No two packets of beads are quite the same. You will receive these actual beads seen here in these photographs

Contents - This pack contains EIGHT (8) BEADS

Size - the beads in this pack range between approximately 2 cm and 3.5 cm in length. The hole has a diameter of approximately 3 mm

Colour - SUMMER SEASIDE - a beautiful mix of ocean colours including various tones of shimmering emerald green aqua lime yellow turquoise sea blue and dark blue with gold and finished with brushed gold so they shimmer in the light. Really nice for all mixed media textiles, art, craft and jewellery projects




I AM HAPPY TO TAKE CUSTOM ORDERS FOR MY BEADS - any amount, any colour combo, any size between 1 and 5 cm - PLEASE GET IN TOUCH IF YOU WANT SOMETHING PARTICULAR


I am a textile artist living in St. Ives, Cornwall. I love to work in mixed media with paint and stitch. I love to manipulate fabrics and plastics with heat to alter their appearance and create interesting textures. I use these pieces along with found objects from the beach and nature (shells, sea glass, pottery pieces, seaweed, feathers, leaves, seed heads and pressed flowers) which I mix with vintage photos and fabrics to create one of a kind pieces of textile art
