Denise loves to take on “large scale [projects] with small beads,” and wrote an article with that title and subject in the May/June 2000 Beadwork. She is skilled with a number of weaving techniques, but in this case she square-stitched a bezel in two-drop ladder stitch around each and every tile. She used 5 pound test monofilament to string and attach all components to the brass rod

    OH! That is beautiful and just defies words for me. I’ve seen some work like this in person but it was a lamp cover at the time I saw it. (It might have grown into a curtain, I don’t know)

    Thank you so much for sharing this photo. I’m off to look at more of her work.

    Peace, love and beauty in your life today.

    Stunning! Really gorgeous – I have a question: how do you string the individual tiles to the crystals. I can’t quite make it out.

    I can understand it each tile already had holes drilled through or if they had a groove around the outside all the way around.

    I’d love to know how you strung them together. Oh – How much does the curtain weigh?
