Item details

This piece is not my design. It is an actual reconstruction of a vintage 1920’s piece inherited by a customer.

The original piece was made of black Czech beads that had been hand sorted by slight differences in shape and size. This task was much too tedious for me, so I opted to needle through the beads before carefully pulling the rapidly rotting cotton threads out. It was practically falling apart as quickly as I could go, but so lovely I couldn’t stop!

From the repair process, I was able to create a pattern for current bead weavers to re-create this lovely piece. I wont sugar-coat it...this piece takes a long time to build. But the rewards of a beautiful historically artistic piece are worth every hour!

These patterns are copy-written material and remain the intellectual property of the designer, Sue Neel. Purchase of the pattern is for individual use ONLY and not an authorization to mass-produce, manufacture, or teach the design to others without explicit written consent.
