About Woven Work's Beadwork Bags
Creating amulet pouches has been a natural extension of the tapestry work done by Fiber Artist Maxine Yablonsky. These are mini-versions of designs that can be worn and used to hold special treasures. Beadwork bags can made to match a particular outfit or pattern, or to fit a special treasure, and serve as a great focal point to anything you may wear.
Each bag begins with a color plan. The designs are usually created as the bag develops. This requires an awareness of the interaction of the bead's color and shape while also staying mindful of the intended look and feel.
For Maxine, beading offers the possibility of working in a more portable manner. Even though each piece requires many hours, it is far less time-intensive than the weaving process. Maxine enjoys the opportunity of constructing each piece, bead by bead, guiding its development and serving as the architect for the outcome.
The greatest joy of owning a unique beadwork amulet pouche is having the opportunity of wearing a work of art. Each bag is guaranteed to receive many compliments and be the topic of conversation!
