Bead Scoop - Fiber Beads

Librarian by day, beadmaker by night, Eleanore Brown offers a beautiful collection of handmade fiber beads in her Etsy shop. The beads are created using a variety of fibers. They are a wonderful bit of texture for your jewelry, quilt embellishment, wall hangings and mixed media pieces.

(FIBER BEAD We think we're beautiful. She thinks we are scrappy. One of us is obviously mistaken.)

Over the past three years Eleanore has developed her technique to produce beads that can withstand everyday wear. Most are able to go through the washing machine, tumble dry and the ends can be trimmed down. With the exception of the beaded beads, due to the delicate nature of the beadwork.

(FIBER BEAD We know delicacy attracts and charms, making people pleased and satisfied.)

The beads come in long and lean or a shorter, large hole version. This etsy seller is open to special requests for different quantities or sizes.

(FIBER BEAD Big Hole So the bead in love with itself and envious of the beauty of Czech beads will look with the enemy's eye on those more beautiful.)

Eleanore's beads are not the quiet type. Each title gives a little glimpse into their personality! Which makes visiting her site entertaining and inspiring.

Hooray for you guys covering Eleanor's beads! I was tickled pink when I found her a few months ago, and I have to say that her beads have added some wild new looks to my work. Plus she's such a sweetheart!
