Hi all. Is anyone familiar with tambour beading? It originates from France and is used by the haute couture houses in Paris. I am teaching myself how to do this technique, but I would love to hear from members who are skilled at it and would be keen to share their expertise. I's also love to hear from others who would like to learn or are beginners of tambour work.
I agree. Your neclace is gorgeous Tara. I have been a beadaholic for quite a few years now but this year joined a BJP to work on my bead embroidery technique. Happy you have joined the group.
Beautiful necklace Tara. Glad your here.
Hello there my name is Tara and I am a true beadaholic. I started bead embroidery last November and can't stop. Teaching myself has been a challenge because there really hasn't been much information available. The necklace that I have used for my picture is one that has been sent into a contest at Fire Mountain Gems. I started out with an applique and covered it with Swarovski crystals. Finished it in 10 days. I would love to learn more when it comes to beading on other items such as shirts and jeans. I love making jewelry, but also want to venture out to other areas.
Thanks for all the comments and ideas. I like all of them. Hugs Elaine
I think if you add too many additional elements of interest it will look too busy and to fatiguing to they eye. The eye needs areas of rest to contrast from areas of detail. What you have going already has strong visual appeal. The blank area is too stark, it does need something to knock that down and make it more integrated with the whole.
A vine that trails from your flowers...maybe a couple of butterflies or bees...
You could have a squirrel or a bird climbing up one side.
You could do the clouds with running and/or stem stitch.
Hint of clouds, very light so they add interest to the background and enhance but without competing with the subject itself (the tree).
