With the love of beadwork comes lots of variety for projects, and one which I am currently enjoying working on is Bead Embroidery. I have completed City and Guilds Level 2 courses in Machine Embroidery and Hand Embroidery with the fab tutor Barbara Inchley, Village Textiles, And have now completed the Level 3 course, so it seems a natural progression to extend my beadwork in this direction.
Here are some of the completed projects I have undertaken.
