Flapper Style

Beader Marina Dukhan 

She's actually a super dope bead weaver.

The flapper is just the first thing I took notice of while doing my usual bead research I guess lol.

She's from Belarus and utilizes various techniques in her beadwork. Embroidery, netting, lace, and bezel work and more.

After trying my hand at embroidery I realize it's not for me. I enjoy bezeling (the beadwork that covers the stone) and netting techniques. I've noticed lace patterns are most popular in France and Italy. While I enjoy monochromatic beading, creating lace patterns relies heavily on black, white, cream and any light pink or beige color. I like vibrant hues, crossing the color range from the darkest to the lightest hue.
