Experience and Techniques

Beaded Sushi Necklace

My beaded sushi necklace design evolved directly from the beads I used.

I had been working with peanut beads and trying a number of different techniques with them to see the textures that they created. For some reason, the Peyote stitch texture reminded me of rice. Perhaps it reflected the fact that I was working with white peanut beads.

Around the same time I had been making  a lot of three-dimensional Peyote shapes. So, I soon made the link and started wondering about the possibilities of turning these beads into beaded sushi.

In all my beaded food designs I have been drawn to experiment by the shapes and colouring of the food. I think sushi is particularly attractive to look at. So, it really lends itself to beading. I also happen to love eating sushi! So, I immediately had an idea about the types of sushi that I wanted to create.

I ended up making beaded sushi nigri and maki. I had to find delica colours that were right for the smoked salmon and seaweed. Then, I used a combination of small beads for the maki filling.

Each piece of beaded sushi is made separately, using a mixture of Peyote stitch and herringbone. You can just leave the sushi on its own, but I chose to make mine into a necklace. The pattern includes the instructions for completing the necklace.

The design features a beaded clasp that is basically a loop that will fasten around one of the pieces of beaded sushi. This is a simple technique and one that works very well. Despite its rather novel appearance, the necklace is lightweight and very wearable.
