nancygould is taking a short break
The inspiration for my pieces is as varied as the beads themselves. Nature, color, clothing, event, theme. I like to learn techniques and stitches but am not afraid to bend the rules so I can follow where my imagination and the beads want to go.
Much of my work involves beads called seed beads. I use a beading needle and beading “thread”. Each seed bead is individually picked up with a needle and sewn to the next bead in a type of weaving pattern. I would describe my pieces as being created in a bead-weaving technique with a heavy emphasis on peyote stitch.
I love my pieces to be noticed, to stand out and not be one of the crowd. I want them to be wearable pieces of art that are unique and not similar to what every other person walking down the street is wearing.
