Beading art

It’s been a busy week of beading. Beading is an absolute awesome way to center your mind and focus your attention. When beading all I can do is the one thing, well of course I usually put on some background music so I do listen to music. It’s a blessing to be able to do this art. The journey started for me a little more than 30 years ago.

This is the beadwork work in progress I showed you last week. It started with a Thunderbird. I put the beaded Thunderbird on a small leather pouch.

This amulet bag would be perfect for a special stone, crystal , medicine or keepsake. There are as many uses for these kinds of bags.

My work in progress this week is a beaded rainbow turtle. I have finished the turtle and am working on the bag. The bag is also going to have linear beadwork down the sides. Coming soon! ūüôā Here is a picture of the turtle.

Beaded leather sunflower bag

I created a different beaded rosette this week and love the way it turned out. First I got all the beads and stones I wanted to use . As you can see I started off with a simple yet elegant turquoise stone cabochon. Around the turquoise I added some glass fire polish beads in a turquoise green color that went with the turquoise cab. From there it was some of my favorite colors of glass seed beads that I thought would look real pretty in this colorful sunflower.

Once I had the rosette done I decided what color of leather this beaded rosette would look good on.

We have a variety of hides in the shop so I take the beaded rosette off to the leather shelf and start pulling hides down. This time I picked a wonderful mahogany color hide. It is one of my favorite colors. It reminds me of the red rocks in Sedona.

Now it’s time to decide what kind of bag do I want to make. This time I decided to do one of our favorites which is a simple fringed handbag. It’s great for a phone and a few other items. It’s also a great place to keep a special journal.

We cut out the bag, lace it up and now it’s time for the beaded rosette to be added. I glue it down then I sew it down. Then I lace around the rosette giving it a beautiful extra dimension. As you can see in the picture.

This fringed leather handbag measures 8.5 inches tall x 7.5 inches wide and has a 48 inch crossbody four point braided strap. It can be thrown over the shoulder , worn crossbody or tied around the waist with a loop knot.  It will hold a large or small phone and a few other things.  I also feel this is a wonderful way to keep a special journal. Like a gratitude journal or a journal you are writing special prayers and keepsake quotes from yourself and other special people.

Fringed Leather Tote with Beaded Turtle

Good morning! My blog has a new look. I found out that my old theme was going out so I had to decide what theme to use. It’s not that easy to pick one. Long story short, tada! Hopefully when I publish all will look great. In the world of computers there are always¬† changes to keep up with. Just like life……. ūüôā

A while back I posted on our facebook page a beaded turtle work in progress picture. I have finished the beaded turtle and made a tote for it to live on. That is what I would like to show you today. All the pictures have a link back to this bag.

This bag has recently SOLD.  If you would like a custom beaded bag contact us here Thunder Rose Leather This leather tote is all hand stitched. It all started with a work in progress turtle. See the pic below.

The beaded turtle has a beautiful turquoise cabochon in the center as a focal point. The beads next to the turquoise cabochon are fire polish glass beads I purchased from Janice at Flutterbye Bead Supply on Etsy.  The seed beads are size 11 and I sell them in our bead and leather supply store Thunder Rose Supplies.

Measurements on this tote are 10 inches tall x 10 inches wide x 2 3/4 inches deep. It has an extra pocket inside. This leather tote makes a great everyday bag. I carry one this size and love it.

As you can see there is a lot of room. I wear mine crossbody and I find it very easy to open and close with the antler tip closure. It is very easy and convenient to get in and out of and the antler tip closure is very secure.

This beaded leather tote is waiting for it’s new home.
