Own Two Hands - Spool knitting with beads. Neat technique for jazzing up I-cord.

I need to play with spool knitting with beads again. This looks lovely!

Beaded purse or wallet (French), 18th century.
From the Victoria & Albert Museum.
According to the V&A: “Many workshops in early eighteenth century France produced small purses. The finest work was in beadwork, in particular the sable-worked, drawstring purses and wallets of the mid-eighteenth century, so finely beaded they resembled grains of sand. They were made in specialist workshops in Paris using up to 1000 per square inch of extremely small and fine glass Bohemian and Venetian beads. This purse is inscribed IAME MON ESCLAVAGE and ICY EST MON SECRET, the monogram and motto of Marie Antoinette. The purse may have been associated with her or her court circle.”

I would love to go the V&A and see this beadwork - and everything else!

When back visiting Australia over summer ‘13-14, I came across Alasdair McLuckie’s work numerous times, at Melbourne Now, Heide. Last week at Art Basel HK his work was on show at Murray White Room and once again I was totally taken by his use of textiles and beadwork. These two and three-dimensional pieces demonstrates his interest in primitive art forms, handcraft, and Picasso. I have since unearthed a treasure trove of his collages and paper works, which will require another separate post!

Fantastic beadwork from Alasdair McLuckie.
