In the 1950's, my mom, Toots, made miniature chairs about 3 inches tall using seed beads and thin wire. Over 60 years later I decided to give it a try. I had no instructions, but I did have beads and what was left of her spool of wire. Knowing the wire was one continuous piece, I had to create a numbered, step by step diagram. It was like solving a puzzle.
If you love beading,
try the art of Beaded Chairs
I've been unable to find any information about this "beaded chair art". I've been unable to find anyone who has ever seen chairs like these (except the ones made by me or Toots). Reviving this apparently lost art is my goal.
Please use the instructions, diagrams and pictures on this site to create your own chairs. Share it with your friends. Most of all, have fun!
