This clever idea to make a bead embroidered filigree pendant is a must see! The tutorial is by Julia Shkoldinoy over on Biserok. Anyone familiar with and who loves bead embroidery will be delighted. The brass filigree takes center stage with this design. Beads are embroidered in some of the spaces as well as around the filigree.
The choice of color background is important with this kind of work because it shows through the open spaces of the filigree.
The tutorial is in Russian. So you'll have to translate the page. Life is a lot easier now that I use the Chrome browser, right click on the page and select "translate to English". But the pictures do make the words redundant especially for those experienced in bead embroidery.
