  • 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. ;)

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....

                                I am a jingle dancer, and I'm making beadwork for my dress, I'm just wondering what pieces of beadwork I should have, for example, barette, neckdrop, hairties, etc.

                                is it ok to do lazy stitch for a tradish set without copyin geometrical designs? is it ok to do a kind of okla. type of beadwork with animals and other types of designs or is it better to modify geometrical designs?

                                so does the beadwork on your purse match the rest of your beadwork, similar to the rest of your beadwork or do you do something totaly different?

                                Typically the beadwork on my purse is similar to my other beadwork, but i mix it up a bit. This time all my beadwork is very geometric but...
