Broderie d’Art: Collection of Techniques
The term broderie d’art is used to summarize the collection of techniques used in Parisian haute couture. Embroidery is not only done with the famous tambour needle or Lunéville needle, but also with, among other things, loose beads and sequins with needle and thread. The use of a beading plate is especially useful for this last application.
- keeping together small, loose elements such as beads, sequins and (Swarovski) stones
- sorting beads
- combining colors of beads and/or sequins
Embroidery tools: my tip!
I myself store loose beads by color in glass jars. That way nothing is lost. When I want to give an embroidery a little shine, I take the pot with the color I want, I sprinkle some of the contents in a beadeing plate and can see exactly what I have. Then I choose the materials I want to use. After use, I pour the remaining beads and sequins back into the glass jar.
