Beading horse hair

It feels like I have been working on beading this horse hair for ages! I started by stringing a single strand of onyx beads onto two strands of horse hair. Once strung, I then had to individually glue every bead into place, so that they don’t slide into a disarray. The whole process was repetitive enough that it became meditation like, allowing me to let my mind roam elsewhere while working on the production of the piece. Check out the video below to see an example of the intricacy of the process.

  1. Oh my, Islay. I LOVE this video. This is so exciting to me as I am a little obsessed with tiny, delicate, and intricate design and process. I am envious of your current project.
