Russian Style Beading
When I want to take on a project that will take me days to a month to complete… I work on Russian Style Beading Jewelry. I learned this style when I was about five living in Chita, Siberia. This style of jewelry making requires patience and dedication, because it will awhile before you can wear the piece of jewelry.
For this style, you’ll need a stringing thread (similar here ) & seed beads ( similar here ). You can also incorporate stones and pins to create a unique piece. In the first picture I used two light blue colored seed beads and added pearls/stones/crystals into the necklace. This necklace i designed for myself, you can also view it here. The two pictures with the vintage pins were actually designed for a customer back when I had my own jewelry company. These two pieces were requested to be created with vintage pins that had roses on them, so i created a blue seed bead bracelet & red a red vintage pin necklace.
The overall result of each beaded piece is gorgeous…. getting to that finished product is definitely a challenge. Each piece is very delicate and every strand represents hours of work. If you choose to try this style, it will definitely be one of a kind.
These items are already sold but I just wanted to focus on showing what Russian style beading is. It is very delicate and requires many hours to complete even one strand… needless to say – Patience is required. Until next time….
