The Neverending Necklace

 

 

See how the Panels are "born"

A Behind-The-Scenes glimpse from the studio...

 

Like any piece of art, we start out with a blank "canvas"

 

A fabric is then selected, sometimes brand new, sometimes recycled. In this case it's a T-shirt to obtain the desired color and texture.

 

A frame is carefully chosen to match the theme and colors of the panel

 

The fabric is then cut to fit the board

 

We stretch the fabric onto the board, wrap it around and attach it securely

 

Next, the fabric-covered board is mounted into the frame

 

The frame and background are ready to be "painted" with beads!

 

The colors and beads are chosen

 

Once in a while, some special rigging is required...

 

The beads are strung, one by one

 

After a preliminary layout, the necklace is then mounted onto the panel

 

Panel #69 "Tribute to Johnny Depp" is done! See all sections in the Gallery.

 

 

 

 

 

Leading a gentle rebellion for a kinder world
