BEANILE by Nina Libin

Rooted in traditional knotting and beading
BEANILE originated in early 1980s in St-Petersburg, Russia
when a group of accomplished needle workers
re-discovered beautiful knotted lace FRIVOLITE, TATTING in English.

While working on the project to revive tatting
I've realized that it may be a perfect technique to organize beads
into open beadwork.

Within months the 'bead-knot' compositions evolved
as a new art form - BEANILE.
Thirty years later it keeps growing.
