Today we’ll talk about beaded bead and how to make beaded jewelry from it. This beaded bead can be of different size, but mine is rather big. That’s why it can be used only alone. It’s my opinion :)) But you can do everything, that your fantasy and imagination suggest you.
So, stop talking, let’s start!!
We will need 18 big beads and beads (beads are better of two colours, but it depends on you).
So, string two beads, big bead, two beads, big bead, two beads, big bead, two beads, big bead, two beads, big bead, two beads, big bead. I.e. you’ll have 6 big beads and 12 beads, strung on a thread.
Close to circle.
Than put the needle into one of the big beads.
String 6 beads (the quantity of bead depends on the size of big beads) and put the needle into the same big bead from the opposite side.
Put the needle into the next two beads and big bead, as you see on the picture.
Again string 6 beads and close them into circle round big bead.
You should this round all big beads.
After that put the needle into one of the big beads again.
Then put the needle into the three beads (i.e. you need to take the needle out after the third bead) above big bead.
String one bead, as you can see on the picture.
Put the needle in the next three beads and string one bead again. See the picture.
Now put the needle into three beads of the next big bead. See the picture.
Tight a little bit. Continue this procedure round the whole circle and what we should get:
Take the needle out of the just now strung bead, as showed on the picture.
String one big bead.
Put the needle into the bead, as you see on the picture.
We get the following:
Continue this procedure. As result we get the following:
Than we need the thread out of the joint bead. See the picture.
String 7 beads (and again the amount of beads depends on the size of big bead).
Put the needle into the next joint bead.
We should back through just now strung two beads, as you see on the picture.
String not 7, but 5 beads (we already have two ones from the previous arch).
Again put the needle into the next joint bead and back through two beads. Continue this procedure. When we have only one unknitted bead, string not 5 beads but 3, as we have two beads from the previous arch and two ones from the the very first arch.
So, we get the following:
Do the same from the opposite side of the beaded bead.
Now we have something like beaded bead:
But we have holes in the center of both sides. Of course, they can absent. Everything depends on the size of beads and big beads. In any case we must block the hole. It can be dome as following:
After that sew some beads to the up of the beaded bead (it will the tail, by which the beaded bead will be fixed to the beaded chain).
Make the beaded chain (or something like that), clasp and our beaded pendant is ready!
That’s all. Now you know how to make beaded jewelry from beaded bead. You can make pendant, using beaded bead. You can do earrings or necklace (but of course if the beaded bead is smaller than this one, however, as you like).
