Among the coral reefs you will find the most colorful, unique and oddly shaped sea life. For the Seed Bead EBWC I chose to capture the flowing, ribbon/ calypso-type shape of these magnificent sea creatures.

Primarily using the back stitch, moss stitch and netting technique, I established the base by stitching rows of beads, two at a time. Not only did the selection of stitches play an important part in creating a 3-d effect with the ruffles flowing as you wear this, but also the choice of colors. Using matte raku size 11 seed beads, I developed the netting with dark purple/teal beads for the first 2 rows, red/purple/orange shade seed bead executed the transition to the top layer of netting now consisting of a copper/yellow/mauve shade of raku seed bead to complete the ruffle.

Between the base rows, a vibrant turquoise/teal seed bead, representing the ocean floor, added additional texture by using the moss stitch.

Both the backing, consisting of Purple Italian leather and the beaded base are glued and stitched together; creating a very fun cuff.



Care of your beadwoven piece is simple; if you don’t have a box to keep it in; slide it into a baggie to keep it from tangling with other jewelry in your drawer. That will also protect it against dust over time. May this piece of wearable art bring you much joy for years to come.
The piece is backed with Italian leather that is as smooth as butter.
