Garden at Versailles- bead embroidery on a bracelet

Garden at Versailles Bracelet

Garden at Versailles Bracelet

Garden at Versailles is a lightweight bracelet created with a base of vintage French jacquard ribbon from the ’40’s. The pattern on the ribbon determined the embellishment choices. The yellow bronze buttons were stitched in place first, with the bead embroidery stitched around the buttons. Glass seed beads in sizes 8, 11, and 15 were used as well as glass leaf charms and glass leaves on wire stems. This bracelet is worn with my Easter in Paris ensemble.

If you are interested in learning bead embroidery I am teaching the Ocean Rivers Bracelet class for Joggles.com. The technique is similar to free- form embroidery on fabric. It should prove to be an adventure!

Happy Stitching, enjoy! Christen
