Beadwork sets & Dresses

Ladies:
What about having different beadwork sets with each dress for each session? I see so many beadwork sets that need rest because they are worn all weekend with a couple of dresses. It is classy when you see nice beadwork specifically for one dress - for each session. It shows the time and effort put into each outfit, not just "put-together" dresses.

I only have one set of beadwork to go with a few dresses. I don't have the time or the patience to bead all the time so as much as I like the sound having a different set of beadwork for each dress, it's not happening.


More power to the ladies who do! :Thumbs

I'm not sure how one person is more classy than another person for having more dresses, sets of beadworks, etc.

More time and effort may be recognized.
Unless of course beadwork/dresses are bought from others. In that case, the person behind the scene should be recognized for their efforts in making that person look 'classy.'

Let me explain myself. Take for instance, Lillian Gadwa, Alanna Tootoosis, Yvette Ewalk and many others - beautiful beadwork with each dress. NOT, many dresses for one set of beadwork. Time and effort into each outfit. That makes all the difference.

I agree. Also the fact that there are people who do not sew or do beadwork. But what they produce at their own time and pace and skill is their own creation. I for one like to sew and do beadwork but I make time for sewing more than the beadwork. raisin my girls and my full time job dont leave me much time. My 13 yr old did her set of beadwork and its not all that, but she did it and she wears it proudly ;) :)

That would be nice to see one person with lots of dresses and beadwork with each. But then it would also be cool to see someone who had a couple dresses (with different colors) that still looked good with the same set of beadwork.

I only got one dress and no beadwork. I got issues with beading, mainly watery eyes, a temper and way too much energy. My mom is making beadwork for my new dress though, I'm going to try to help her.

I like seeing women w/ 1 or 2 sets and see what kind of ideas they can come up w/ when busting out a new dress to match those sets just as I like seeing the dancers with new sets of beadwork and dresses for each session. To me it doesn't matter, as long as the dancer is out there enjoying themselves and dancing hard.

I agree with Ruby, having alot of sets of beadwork usually indicates a circuit veteran. I think there is a "status" thing that comes with having that many sets of beadwork-not a bad thing-just a reflection of probable years of experience. I do like the creativity that having less sets of beadwork creates though

I think seeing someone who takes care of their one set of beadwork and who has and eye for making a few dresses that really match their beadwork is just as nice.
Not everyone has the time or maybe not the fast beading pace to keep up different beadwork and different dresses.
A person with one set of beadwork doesnt mean they dont put effort into their outfits

Right! Just as seeing a person with a lot of sets of beadwork and dresses does not mean they put any effort into their outfits... sometimes it means they just had the $$'s to pay another person to put their time and effort into it. ;)

Well I only have one beadwork set right now...but I have about 6 Dresses with it that match the Beadwork....so I guess it's ok if people wanna have about 3 sets of beadwork it means there beadwork will last long...But I have one set right now and I take really good care of it..even tho I get a new beadwork set each winter but my sister always uses my old set or I let my cousin use them cause she don't know how to bead or sew..LOL..I perfer to make dresses tho I make about a new one about every month or month 1/2. I bead once in awhile...But I bead all mah stuff since I was in 6 th grade so that was a long time ago....but yeah just take care of your beadwork and it shall last for a few years....

Im in the same boat I got more dresses than beadwork. Have 5 dresses one still in closet the past 7 months unfinished and 2 sets of bead work. For me dashing out a dress is much easier than sitting down and beading. Plus i aint to good at thinking up new design work. Im happy with the 2 I got.
plus its always good to see your friends in there with the same beadwork you seen them in for so long because you kow thats their design and their work. sort of like there trademark. make sense? But then its good to see different designs to i guess I would have to say i dont give a flip what folks wear. lol.

I agree with most everyone on this thread, especially my kwewag. :D I can bead and sew, but don't have the time. I suppose if I was rich, single and had no kids, I'd have ten sets of beadwork with just one dress for each set. But since I live in my own real world :p It ain't happening. :D

If we were rich,single and with no kids we wouldn't have time to be on here because we would be on the road hittin' all dem pow-wows! LOL
Myself, I rather see a person with 1 set of beadwork that is taken care of than see someone with several diiferent sets that doesn't take of any of them!
Yeah, it looks good when you can bust out different beadwork and a matching dress each session of the pow-wow, but realistically the people who can do that usually didn't have the time to do all that work themselves. They have family that helps with kids ( or they don't have any), or they have family to help with their sewing.
Congrats if you got it but don't feel bad if you don't.
Cause if you don't then your are more common than them!

I just finished my new beadwork and have about 3 dresses so far to go with it. One of my sisters asked me if I am going to bead a new set for next year. I told her that doing all that beadwork is like running a marathon. I don't think my mind, body, and spirit is ready for another round just yet....LOL. I don't have any dependents, but I do have a full-time job and go to school part-time. I find that I don't have the time to dedicate, but kudos to the one who is able to have more beadwork sets and matching dresses.

Good thought's ladies.

In my opp, to each their own its all good as long as we are dancin ,singing and being Indian!!! Now much to my hubbies dismay and his wallat I like to have more that one se t of beadwork but that works for me, and I make all my own beadwork but i keep adding to my orginal set as well jus t apiece here and there as i get the ideas or someone sujests what mite look good and i like the idea. And the ladeies and friends in my family get togehter and have what we lovenly call a bead / sewing sweatshop ha,ha we brain storm new ideas work on our own set or all work on one set for one of us being our personal set or one of our kids and there is always new dress and bling for an upcoming headlady pos or family giveaway. Oh and ill add there is no money involved we trade skills and materials its very rare that we have to go out and buy things for our gettogethers well cept for food! ha,ha. hope this diddnt bore you guy's!!!
