Tiny brooches, flamboyant necklaces, framed pictures, tables,
bottles, vases and small toys are included in a unique exhibition
where diverse objects have been embellished with millions of beads
to transform them into something new.
Brilliant Beads is presented by the Ballarat Branch of the
Embroiderers Guild of Victoria as part of its 50th Anniversary. It
brings together pieces as diverse as a beautifully beaded wedding
dress to craft and an antique fire screen lovingly restored by
renowned textile artist Alison Cole.
The beaded articles on display have been sourced from various
places, including the archives of the Embroiderers Guild, the Art
Gallery of Ballarat as well as pieces from individual Members'
collections and their own work.
This exhibition is one of a series around the state hosted by
branches of the Embroiderers Guild of Victoria.
