I haven't shown my work here for ages, for I was a bit busy - last autumn I became mom again and now my fourth child, David, takes most of my time, arms and attention.
Though in February I started and last week finished and presented a beaded portrait loomed of 15042 Toho seed beads size 11. I used 10 shades of black, grey and white.
The portrait can be seen here:
What do you think of it?
Fantastic work, all the portrait's are of the same high quality. Must take a high number of hours to make one.
Etsy.com/shop/buttonsandshanks 100's of buttons
Thank you so much!
Yes. It took of about half an hour to make a row in the newest portrait and there are 109 rows in it. So, of about 55 hours. But really it was four months, as I did from two to ten rows a day and not every day.
Totally amazing and such awesome work.
Thank you very-very much!
Are you the same lady that showed us no warps beading cartoon on youtube?
If so, TY TY TY! I love your technique, I use it for all my loomed bracelets!
If not, ignore my silly late night ramblings...
I'm afraid, it's me.
I'm glad you use it.
How great. Thank you for sharing
Thank you very much! I'm so pleased :)
I'm completely blown away- your work is marvelous! What a neat way to make a family portrait for someone..
Oh wow! I can't even imagine the amount of time and effort that went into that picture. It looks amazing! Well done!
Thank you, Emma!
The process of looming took of about 60 hours, but it lasted for four months, as I have a baby in my arms almost all the time.
Hello Kathy, nice to hear from you again. Congratulations on the new little one! You surely are busy, with four!! I guess it can be relaxing to weave on a loom, when you get the chance, after running so much with the children. I found my time late at night, when everyone slept :D
This is a wonderful portrait. I really enjoy all of your pieces. You patterns are create so well. So what is next, from your loom?
