Bead and Button Making

This month at classes I have been teaching all about 
Circles, Beads and Buttons and as you can 
see by the above pictures some have had a real
play and made them out of unusual materials.
Just by wrapping a long triangle piece of fabric around a 
knitting needle and securing it with thread or wire.
You can then heat gun it or use a soldering iron.
(Remember to be careful!).
Layers of sheers and man made fabrics work really well.
When cool slip them off and you can use as embellishments
 on your work.
Add paint foils and powders to really get effects.
See more in previous posts and I am sure there will be more to come.
