Miniature Beaded Dresses and Bags by Sian Nolan

By on Sunday, July 07, 2013 9 Comments

Sian Nolan is passionate about bead work. This UK artisan beads a lot as you can see from her Flickr photostream!  She teaches bead work both in her native England and in Germany.  She is also a regular contributor to UK Bead magazine and sells her own design tutorials in her Etsy store



About 4-5 years ago, she created these wonderful miniature beaded dresses and handbags based on designs from various Japanese books and magazines.  They were all so adorable!



Sian also did a great job at displaying them on what I suspect are doll house furniture!


The dress below is reminiscent of a flapper dress from the 1920's!


This little green number is actually a pendant hung on a hanger shaped finding!


Sian clearly enjoyed making many of the patterns from those Japanese books including the full regalia below!


She is also right.  A girl cannot have too many handbags!
