Filigrees and your jewelry
Janis J pendant with Circle Dance filigree is a beautiful bead embroidery project that has an interesting star-shape. The colorful ultra suede shows its color through the filigree. You can decorate the filigree with extra beaded motif, beads to fill some of the holes too.
Circle Dance filigree can be used also as a base for holding your bead weaving motif and used in pendant or brooch.
Aztec Sun design is based on the beauty of Aztec filigree and small navette art quality cabochon. It shines like the sun and I recommend it if you like to begin with bead embroidery and also try to bezel other than a round shape. 😉 If you are not sure about your color way, you can always choose one of kits designed by Zuzi.
This Flower Statement filigree has a lot of history in its background, it was recently revived for Beadingschool. It’s fairly large, but perfect in every detail. Zuzi used it to hold her Jailsalmer motif, added glass pearls to create necklace. It is perfect size to support also bead embroidery motif and it can be turned into wonderful vintage-looking brooch!
Last, but not least, I need to pick and show a little addition in metal components – gold color connectors with cubic zirconia. They complement whole Maharaja’s Jewel theme we live and bead in January and February in Beadingschool Academy. I bezeled 12mm Preciosa Nacre pearl and decorated the connector with extra Preciosa crystal beads and drop.
