Beaded jewelry – Beaded flower :)

And again beaded flower 🙂 The original tutorial is here

I’ve made a brooch for my aunt for her Birthday, I hope she liked it. During making it I have made a step-by-step tutorial, so maybe it’ll be useful for somebody.

So, let’s go! I used seed bead Matsuno of 15 size (you can make petals for one colour of seed bead or you can make like me from 3 collours of seed bead).

We begin our flower from petals. String 3 seed beads and close them into the circle.

String two more beads, as you see on a picture.

Than put the needle through the beads, see the picture

So, continue to string beads due to the mosaic technique

So we have 3 rows of our first petal of our beaded flower.

Than we continue to string due to mosaic, increasing the amount of beads in every row.

In order to make the petals more interesting I took three different colours.All colours I added chaotic.

So we string 11 row in that manner.

Than we string 4 rows without inreasing. After that we begin to decrease amont of beads in every row.

We decrease the amount of beads till in the row we have 5 beads.

Than do the following.

After that we go through the all beads

So the petal is ready!

Make 6 beaded petals

Now do the middle of our flower.

String 12 beads and close them into a circle. After that do the ndebele, string 7 rows.

Now we will gather the flower.

Make a round piece of beads.

We will sew all patels and the middle to this piece. See the pictures

 

Our flower is ready !!

Beaded jewelry – BIG Beaded Spiral

Hi,

Today we’ll talk about beaded spirals. I like them very much. They look very smart and unusual, besides the technique is rather simple. From the first sight, of course, it seems rather hard and tangle. But look what I’ve made from one beaded scheme!!

Beaded jewelry – Beaded Herringbone (Ndebele) Spiral

Hi, my dear!!

Today we’ll learn something new. How to make beaded Herringbone or Ndebele spiral, so we’ll learn Herringbone stitch (Cables, Diamonds, & Herringbone: Secrets of Knitting Traditional Fishermen’s Sweaters or ). It’s difficult to make only from the first sight. But little practice and everything will be very nice!! It makes a very sleek beaded cord and looks beautiful by itself or with the addition of a beaded pendant or slider. So good luck!!
