Beaded daisy chain

Hello, my dear friends!

Previous post was just introduction into an amazing world of beads!! But today we’re starting our exciting journey.

 

For the first I suggest to learn some easy patterns and basic techniques (I think it’ll be rather useful for beginners and I hope it’ll be as renewal for advanced learner)  and than step by step we’ll get to more complicated necklaces and bracelets.

Today we’ll learn how to make such a lovely DAISY CHAIN.

So, let’s make our first steps to beaded jewelry!!

 

STEP 1

 

Cut six feet of thread and double thread it through the needle.Note that even though you’ll be working with a double thread through out the project, the instructions will look as if there is just one thread.

STEP 2

 

The first thing to is to make a ring of beads that you’ll attach one half of the clasp to later on. At the end of the bracelet you’ll do the same thing for the other half of the clasp.String two pink beads and six green beads and pull the beads down until they are two inches from the end.

STEP 3

 

Bring the needle through the first bead (bead №1) strung going in the side of the bead closest to the tail of the thread. Pull taut to form a ring. Be sure to leave the two inches of tail.

STEP 4

 

Bring the needle through the next bead (bead №2) and then through the next six beads to come out of bead №8. Tie a knot between using the thread and tail.

STEP 5

 

Now the ring is done and the first daisy will be created.Bring the needle through beads №1 and №2.

STEP 6

 

String eight pink beads and bring the needle through bead №1 and pull taut to form adjoining ring.

STEP 7

 

String one purple bead and bring the needle through bead №11 so that it comes out between beads №11 and №10.Now the first daisy has been created! The next two steps will create the leaves and the beginnings of the next daisy.

STEP 8

 

String two green beads, two pink beads and two more green beads. Bring the needle through bead №12 so that it comes out between beads №12 and №11 and pull tight to form another ring.

STEP 9

 

String one green bead and bring the needle through bead №16 so that it comes out between beads №16 and №15.The leaves and the beginnings of the next daisy are done. Now just repeat the next 4 steps until bracelet is the right length for you.

STEP 10

 

The needle is coming out of bead B right now. String six pink beads and bring the needle through bead A so that it is coming out between A and B. Pull taut to form a ring.

 

 

instruct10

STEP 11

 

String one purple bead and bring the needle through bead X so that it comes out between beads X and Y.

 

 

instruct111

STEP 12

 

String two green beads, two pink beads and two more green beads. String the needle through bead Z so that it comes out between beads Z and X.

 

 

instruct12

STEP 13

 

String one green bead and bring the needle into bead B so that it comes out between beads B and C.

 

 

instruct13

STEP 14

 

Now that the bracelet is the right length, if you didn’t stop at the end of a “daisy” do the necessary steps so that you do. You will now create the ending loop.String six green beads and form a ring by bringing the needle through beads A and B. For strength, bring the needle through those six beads again and through beads A and B again. Now tie a knot between beads B and X.

I hope everything is clear. If not, don’t hesitate and ask me!!!

    I start this and it looks perfect. Just like I want but the bracelet is bend to the side. Is it because I am not alternating sides. Help would be appreciated.

    I just started this bracelet today and I love it, thank you so much for the easy to follow instructions!
    Michelle I actually found mine doing the same thing, and realized that I had just gone thru the wrong bead when putting the centre flower bead in. Instead of going thru bead 11 (or X) I went thru 12 (or Z). Altho it was a simple mistake, I do have to undo 6 daisies to get to it. :o)
