Hi, my dear friends!!
We continue our journey in the world of beaded jewelry!
Today I’ll tell about new technique – we’ll learn how to make something like snowflake. Using this technique we can make such wonderful earnings:
or this interesting pendant
So, let’s start!
Single thread a needle with 4 feet of thread.
String eight green beads and leave a 2 inch tail.
Bring the needle through bead №1 so that it comes out between beads №1 and №2 and pull taut to form ring.
Now bring the needle through the rest of the beads to reinforce the ring coming out of bead №8. Tie a knot between the bead thread and the tail.
Bring the needle through bead №1. Then string five beads and go through bead №3 so that the needle is coming out between beads №3 and №4. Repeat this three more times so you have four evenly distributed “petals.” Your needle should be coming out of bead №1 when done.
Bring the needle through beads A and B. String five beads and go through bead D to form a petal. Then string five more beads and go through bead F. Repeat these two petals all the way around until you have formed eight petals. You will be coming out of bead A when done.
Bring the needle through beads №1, №2 and №3. String two yellow beads, one blue bead and two more yellow beads. The go through the point of the next petal; bead №4. Repeat this seven more times; connecting each petal point. You will be coming out of bead №3 when done.
Bring the needle through beads A and B. String three yellow beads and bring the needle through bead C. Then string three red beads and bring the needle through bead D. Repeat this all the way around. You will be coming out of bead B when done.
Bring the needle through beads №1 and №2. String three red beads and then go through bead №3. Then string three more red beads and go through bead №4. Repeat this all the way around.
And what you must get at the end:
So, if everything is clear, you may start your own snowflake 🙂
