Reviving Fashion: Transforming an Old Bag with Glass Seed Beads




As a passionate crafter working with glass seed beads, I find immense joy in breathing new life into old items. Recently, I had the pleasure of remaking an old bag using tiny glass seed beads, leather, cotton cord, and silk thread, incorporating embroidery and embellishments to create a stunning transformation. Join me on this creative journey as I share the process of reviving fashion through the art of beadwork.

The old bag that served as the canvas for this project held sentimental value but had lost its luster over the years. To begin the transformation, I carefully assessed the bag's structure and material, envisioning how the addition of glass seed beads could elevate its aesthetic appeal.

    First, I meticulously selected a color palette of glass seed beads that would complement the bag's existing tones. The delicate nature of these beads allowed me to create intricate patterns and designs, adding a touch of elegance to the bag's surface. Using a fine needle and Nylon beading thread, I embarked on the meticulous task of hand-embroidering the glass seed beads onto the bag, layer by layer, to ensure a seamless and captivating finish.

    Glass seed beads colors and sizes I used for this bag:
    Delica glass seed beads #11
      Delica glass seed beads #8
        Toho Glass Seed Beads #11
          Miyuki Glass Seed Beads #15

            Incorporating leather and cotton cord, I introduced tactile elements that enhanced the bag's texture and durability. The black leather accents provided a striking contrast to the glass seed beads, while the cotton cord added a rustic charm, harmonizing with the overall design.

            I created a handmade natural silk tassel, wrapped it with natural leather and embellished it with tiny glass seed beads. The beaded round dangle bead adds to a bag a fun feel.

            In conclusion, the process of remaking the old bag with glass seed beads, leather, cotton cord, and silk thread was a testament to the transformative power of creativity. By infusing new life into forgotten pieces through meticulous craftsmanship, we not only honor their history but also celebrate their potential for reinvention. This project exemplifies the beauty of sustainable fashion and the artistry of beadwork, inspiring us to look at everyday items with fresh eyes and embrace the magic of reinvention.

            Step 6: Secure the other end of the thread, string one 15o A, skip one bead and sew the needle through the next two 15oAs (photo a-9). Then sew the needle up through the leaf bead, flower bead, 2mm zircon (photo a-10), then sew back through the leaf bead, flower and exit through the opposite 15o A bead. Then secure the other end of the thread, string one 15o A, skip one bead and sew the needle through the next two 15oAs (photo a-11).
            Step 7: Next exiting 15o A bead string one 15o A bead and sew the needle to the left through the 15o A bead you added at the step 6, then string 15o A bead and sew the needle to the right through the last 15o A (photo a-12).

            Step (7)
            Next pick up 30mm open round component, and put on the beadwork, and holding the ring on the beadwork (photo a-7) work one round with 15o D s pulling tight so that the beadwork begins to come up around the ring (photo a-8).
            Step (8) Work two rounds with 15o D s, of tubular-peyote stitch around the ring and step up (photo a-9).
            Step (9) Start to decrease the width of a piece and work one round with 15o D s skipping fifth space without adding a bead, repeat around the ring (you will have a total of 29 beads around the ring), (photo a-10). Pull the thread firmly to narrow the gap between beads.
            Step (10) On the following round work a single 15o D bead above the decrease (you will have a total of 29 beads around the ring), (photo a-11).
            Step (11)
            Work two rounds with 15oD s of peyote and step up (photo a-12).

            Step (13) Work two rounds of peyote with 15o Ds (photo a-14,15).
            Step (14) Next string one 10mm round coral bead and exit through the nineth opposite 15o D bead, weave the thread through the couple beads, sew the needle through the next tenth 15o D bead, sew the needle back through the 10mm coral bead and exit through the opposite 15o D bead at the other side (photo a-16).
            Step (15) Then weave the thread through the beads to the one edge 11o C bead. Work one round of peyote around the beaded circle edge with 11o Cs (photo a-17).
            Step (16)
            Next exiting one edge 11o C bead string one 15oE bead, ear-wire, one 15o E bead and sew through the next 11o C bead (photo a-18).

            On 1.5 yd. of thread, and leaving an 8-in. tail, pick up thirty-three 11o Cs and form a ring (photo c-1).
            (2) Exiting one 11o C bead string two 11o Bs and sew the needle through the next 11oC bead (start forming the triangle shape).

Then work five stitches with 11o Bs, then string two 11o Bs and sew the needle through the next 11oC bead and finish with five stitches of 11o Bs (photo c-2). Step up through the first one (of the pair) bead added to this round.
            (3) At the corner add two 11oAs per stitch, next work one 11o B, one 11o C, two stiches with 11o Bs, one 11o C bead, one 11o B bead and at the corner work two 11oAs per stitch. Next work with 11o Bs and at the corner adding two 11oA beads (photo c-3). Step up.
            (4) Exiting one 11o A bead add two 11oAs per stitch, next work one 11o A, two 11o Bs, one 11o A, two 11o Bs, one 11o A and at the corner work two 11oAs per stitch. Next work with 11o As and at the corner adding two beads per stitch (photo c-3). Step up.
            (5) At the corner add two 11oAs per stitch, next work two 11o As, one 11o B, two stiches with 11o As, one 11o B bead, two stitches with 11o As and at the corner work two 11oAs per stitch. Next work with 11o As and at the corner adding two 11o A beads per stitch (photo c-4). Step up.
            (6) At the corner add two 11oAs per stitch, next work four stiches with 11o As, then weave the thread down through two beads and go up through the one bead, work four 11o As and at the corner work two 11oAs per stitch. Next work with 11o As and at the corner adding two 11oA beads per stitch (photo c-4). Step up.
            (7) Next sew the needle through the two beads of the corner, then work four stitches with 11oAs. Weave the thread down and up through the 11o As, work four 11o As, sew the needle through the two corner beads and exiting 11oAs work down ten stitches with 11o As. Next add at the corner two 11o As and finish this step with ten 11oAs (photo c-4). Step up through the first bead added to this round.
            (8) Then work three stitches with 11o As. Weave the thread down through the one 11o A and 11o Bs (photo c-4) weave the thread up through the beads and exit 11o A bead from previous step (I suggest not to weave the thread through the upper 11o As, because you won't be able to pass the thread through these beads in future) and work three 11o As, sew down through the two corner and one more 11o A bead. Next work with 11o As and at the lower corner adding two 11oA beads per stitch (photo c-4). Step up through the first bead added at this round.

Next work two stitches with 11o As, sew the needle down through the four beads, work ten stiches with 11o As, work two 11oAs at the corner and finish with ten stitches of 11oAs (photo c-5). Step up.
            (10) At top of beaded heart beadwork exiting 11oA bead work one stitch with one 11o A bead and repeat at the opposite side (photo c-5).

            Ouroboros is a symbol of eternal cyclic renewal or a cycle of life, death and rebirth.
            This is the ancient Egyptian symbol of which it is said: It slays, weds, and impregnates himself. It is man and woman, begetting and conceiving, devouring and giving birth, active and passive, above and below, at once. 
            As symbol of the origin and of the opposites in it the ouroboros the “Great Round” in which positive and negative, male and female, elements of consciousness, elements hostile to consciousness and unconscious elements are intermingled…

            Over the years on my beach walks I have acquired a large collection of jewelry quality sea glass, driftwood, and shells. The sea glass gems I choose for my beachcomber necklaces must be already nicely shaped and free of any obvious flaws. Most important I don’t need to cut, shape, or alter the sea glass, the sea, sand and waves do the job.

            When I have the idea for the necklace, I just go through all my sea glass collection and look for the shapes and color I need for my adornment. Sometimes it takes a long time to decide which pieces will go to my design…

            I really love working with tiny Japanese glass seed beads and natural gemstone beads. I love the texture that tiny beads create. There are many different finishes, colors and shapes of glass seed beads, just by combining them in different color combinations makes each piece one of a kind.

            I like to use the matte finished beads for the sea glass pieces. It just compliments so beautiful the frosted sea glass texture. And I use the gold finished beads as an accent. There is something about the look of frosted glass and the gleam of gold as well as the way it showcases the common light blue, green and translucent whites.

            Your Zodiac sign can give you powerful insight into your past, present and future, but it is not an isolated system. Your body and mind form a complex matrix that responds to colors and crystals. The way you respond to color is usually very individual and is related to your own past experiences and your personality. I would suggest experimenting with colors and jewelry designs and try to understand what feels wright to you and your soul.

            There are many ways to make sea glass jewelry. Most common are:
            1. Wire wrapping. You would need 20gauge sterling silver, copper or gold-plated wire.

            1. Usually I start by playing with different shapes of drift wood, beach stones, sea glass pieces till I create the desirable composition.

            1. Then I glue the chosen pieces to beading foundation: Put a dab of E-6000 glue on beading foundation, and then glue the material to the back (or around) of the piece of sea glass (beach stone, shell or driftwood).
            2. Set the sea glass (beach stone, shell or driftwood) aside and left the glue dry and cure for at least 4 hours (best would be 24 hours).
            3. Tie an overhand knot at the end of 2yd. (1.8m) of conditioned thread. Using a # 12 sharps needle, sew through the beading foundation fabric from back to front, next to the stone edge.

            1. Pick up six Delica Japanese seed beads and position them along the stone’s edge. Sew through the last three beads (figure 1). Continue working in beaded backstitch around the edge of the cab, adding an even number of beads (photo c).
            2. Using a regular beading needle and Delica seed beads, work in tubular, even-count peyote stitch around the ring. Changing seed bead colors for each round, continue adding rounds of peyote until the top edge of the cab is covered (photo d, e).
            3. Then I create a bail for pendant: usually I cut desirable piece of natural leather. Then I create gorgeous print/pattern from tiny glass seed beads.

            1. For necklace strap I use cotton cord and make an adjustable, sliding clasp.

            Step 1: On 28” of thread, and leaving 6” tail work in flat, even-count peyote stitch to make one strip of 10 beads wide ant 16 rows tall (one 11oE, eight 11oA, one 11o E) (photo a-1). Secure the 6” tail thread in beadwork with a few half-hitch knots between beads, and trim.

            Step 2:
            Cut a 2” long peace of cotton cord (photo a-1). Wrap it around the necklace strap. Then pick up a finished strip and wrap it around 2” folded cord (photo a-2). Zip up the first and last rows together, retrace the thread path a few times, and with the sharp needle sew through the middle of beaded strip and two cotton cords (photo a-3), weave through the couple beads and repeat one more time. Secure the working thread in the beadwork and trim.

Retrace the thread path a few times, secure the tail in beadwork with a few half-hitch knots between beads, and trim. This last strip should slide, be careful not to sew through the cotton cord.

            How I Create Cape Cod Necklaces from items found on the beach: sea glass, driftwood, beach stone and feathers

            Beach-combing is a wonderful way to spend your free time by the water and a great way to get to know and explore your favorite Cape Cod beaches. On my trips to the shore I collect smooth and frosty gems – sea glass that later will be woven into beautiful Cape Cod-inspired Necklaces.

            Beachcomber Necklace with Beach Stone and Sea Glass by Ezartesa.
            Tumbled by waves, recycled by the sea, sea glass is a product of both nature and man. A quality piece of sea glass has no shiny spots, is well frosted, and has smooth edges.

            Beach Glass Necklace in Sea Green and Brown by Ezartesa.

            Every colorful and good quality piece I find gives me an idea of what kind of Cape Cod-inspired necklace I can create. First, I play with the shapes, then I think about color and then about the texture. Texture I create by weaving tiny glass seed beads around the piece of sea glass.

            For my Cape Cod Jewelry, I use a natural leather. First, I cut a desired length and width of leather strip, then I embellish it with tiny glass seed beads.

            While there are plenty of different kinds of shells and sea glass to discover, there are also wonderful beach rocks to be found on the shores of Cape Cod. I love collecting clear and milky quartz in different shapes and colors for my Cape Cod Necklaces. I use these adorable beach stones as a focal/center piece for my necklaces, and embellish them with matte, opaque and gold-plated glass seed beads.

            Blue Sea Glass and Citrine Beach Stone Necklace by Ezartesa.
            These pebbles are abundant on all the Cape beaches. What I am looking for when beachcombing, is whatever appeals to me: smooth, beautiful round or oval-shaped milky stones in peachy, yellow or grey colors. My favorite beach stone is clear quartz in light yellow or smoky brown color.
            I treasure the stones that fascinate me personally, that challenge my thoughts and imagination. This is where my inspiration comes from every time I go to the beach.

            The jewelry you wear is an expression of your personality, passions, and lifestyle. While I design a new piece of jewelry I always think about what feeling, what mood and what story I want to tell with the jewelry piece I’m working with.
