Lately theres been a lot of excitement in the bead community
about the great new bead shapes on the market. New bead fin-
ishes, sizes, and shapes certainly keep beading interesting. But
one of the most important aspects of beading that keeps my
work fresh is the wide array of stitch techniques available for
putting beads together.
The extensive range of techniques featured in this issue proves we beaders are
always innovating with the wide range of stitches available to us. Turn back to our
Stitch Index on page 3 for a complete listing of the sixteen different techniques we
have in store. Which technique will you try first? For me, I have yet to try soutache
but have already ordered materials to make Miriam Shimons beautiful Aurora
Pendant Necklace (page 38). Perhaps youve never tried your hand at Russian spiral
stitch. Fall in love with itor gain a new appreciationafter reading this issues
Stitch Pro lesson from Jean Campbell (page 14). Have yet to try cubic right-angle
weave? Dont be intimidated! Jill Wisemans Pick Up Sticks project (page 22) is the
perfect introduction to CRAW.
Pamela Kearns paired a simple wireworking technique with much-loved peyote
stitch in her trendy Boho Bangle (page 42). First she beaded two patterned, flat pey-
ote bands, then she wrapped the bandsplus a few coils of wirearound licorice
leather cord to create a quick-and-easy bracelet. Ive always been intrigued by the
unique construction of St. Petersburg chain. Samx Kilgores necklace chain (page 80)
uses this fun stitch, plus her two extra embellishment rows turn the seemingly plain
band into an exciting spiral.
Dive into this issue and choose a technique thats new to youor one that youve
long forgotten aboutand share your experience with us by email (beadwork@inter
weave.com), on our Inside Beadwork Magazine blog (click the Blogs tab on beading
daily.com), or on Facebook (beadworkmagazine.com/facebook).

READERS TIP
I opted to use fre-
polished glass beads in
place of the bicones, using
shades of blue and green
in varying fnishes to
create a softer feel to
the bracelet.
READERS TIP
I altered the shape,
added fve bicone crystals,
and joined them in
the middle to make a
three-dimensional
efect.
ROSE RUSHBROOKE of Safety Harbor, Florida, was

SYLVIE CAMPS of Fort Myers,
Florida, says that Sra Zsadons
Simple Star earrings in the October/
November 2012 issue inspired her
to make this necklace.
KRISTEN HO of Ashburn, Virginia, created this

I love the drop beads of
varying sizes. They are perfect
for my design aesthetic, and I
often find myself reaching for
my box of drop beads to add
finishing touches to my
jewelry. Drop beads look
pretty when grouped together
in little clusters or stitched
along the edges. I have even stitched them along
the neckline of my blouses to add some glamour!
JAYASHREE PARAMESH
Ive always been addicted to
glass beads from the Czech
Republic, and my newest,
latest addiction is Czech-glass
druks! The newest druks come
in such stunning colors and
finishes that make them so
versatile; they look fabulous
whether you dress them up
with fancy filigree and crystals or dress them
down with cord and rustic elements. I cant get
enough of em!
AMY HAFTKOWYCZ
One of my favorite new bead
shapes is the double-drilled
dagger. I love the look they add
to a piece, and they can be
used in a variety of ways. They
can be hard to find, but Im
hoping that they become more
popular.
SAMX KILGORE
The most exciting part of
beading is the thrill of discov-
ery! Any brand-new bead
shape is my favorite, teasing
me to think outside the bead.
I love a good challenge and am
always jazzed by the surprises
that take shape on my beading
table as the latest and greatest
is paired with the tried and true.
SANDIE BACHAND
Ive really been hooked on
peanuts and Superduos lately!
I love the uniformity of the
Superduos, but I love peanuts
for the irregularity. I like
working with drops, especially
the 2.8mm ones. I just love the
possibilities these little bits of
glass offer. And who could
forget the scrumptious colors?
MICHELLE HEIM
I am addicted to Superduos! I
love the way they look in circu-
lar patterns, and I love their
versatility in forming connec-
tions between beaded
sections. I think their slightly
rounded shape in the middle
adds interest and dimension
to projects. Its fun to be chal-
lenged by those little cuties!
BARBARA FALKOWITZ
Great question! I have to
admit, though, because peyote
was the first stitch I learned,
Delicas are my first go-to
bead, with seed beads coming
in a close second. Ive lately
started creating peyote beads
to wrap around braids and
ropes and am using drops as
accents.
PAMELA KEARNS
I get really excited every time I
see a new kind of bead, and
then I go right back to Delicas.
They are so uniform and fit to-
gether very well when used
with peyote stitch or brick
stitch. I like to show as little
thread as possible, and for that
they are perfect. They come in
so many different color finishes that you can
achieve almost any look.
ALICE COELHO
Of all the new shaped beads,
the Czech two-hole tile beads
would get my vote for favorite
because of their silky finish.
Ive been collecting multiple-
hole and unusual beads for
years, so I have really enjoyed
designing with all the new
shapes.
CAROLE RODGERS
My favorite beads these days
are the Superduo beads. The
color range and the possibili-
ties are endless, and I can
incorporate them in almost
any design, with seed beads,
fancy stones, and sparkly
crystals.
YASMIN SARFATI
I love all the new beads out
there, but my current favorite
is definitely the tile beads.
They are so versatile and can
be used in so many ways. Im
also in love with the Superduos
for that same reason.

To incorporate the deep ocean-blue shades of the glass swirl beads into my
beaded ropes, I added dark blue iris size 11s from my stash between columns
of tubular herringbone. When the flared bead caps didnt quite work for the
beaded rope ends, I turned them around and quickly found how nice they
look with the chains. The aqua leather cord is woven through many links in
the large chain and helps give the piece a more casual look.

The material colors and shapes in this kit remind me of photos Ive
seen from Greecethe blues, golds, and whites remind me of the
fabulous architecture of cities surrounded by brilliant ocean waters. So
I created this Grecian-inspired piece with bead-dangle columns and a
bead-embroidered Greek key crescent. The chains and leaf clasp add
more metallic elements without excessive bling for a bit of old-world
charm. I cant wait to wear the piece this summer!

THE RULES: We use our favor-

and, where necessary, round out
projects with our own supplies.
THE STASH: This sea-and-sand
colored kit from Goody Beads
included ocean-blue lampwork
beads, peridot crystal beads,
turquoise and green cords, and
antiqued brass flower and leaf
findings. Seed beads in sunlit,
sandy shades rounded out this
summery collection.

christina neit (reader participant)
I used bead embroidery for this necklace and based the theme on the
wide range of color options from the lampwork beads. I used mountain
jade and river-stone cabochons, vintage cabochons/crystals/chatons,
metal studs, vintage brass stampings, fire-polished beads, and bunches
of different-sized seed beads in the embroidery.
katie litchfield (reader participant)
When I opened the kit, an asymmetrical design immediately came to
mind. The idea of a beaded rope hanging between the chains was there
from the first. After much debate, I settled for a six-strand queens crown
knot woven from single strands, having no idea if it was even possible.
Soon after, I was inspired by the golden color scheme to create the
midsummer leaves and flowers, and I used the blue pieces to add
drops of color throughout the necklace.

RUSSIAN SPIRAL
TECHNIQUES YOU CAN'T BEAD WITHOUT

MATERIALS & TOOLS

Size D nylon or 6 lb braided beading thread
Scissors
Beading needle
In the late 1990s, a handful of Russian-
language beadwork books hit the United
States. Beaders here went wild, decipher-
ing the instructions despite the language
barrier, because they were so excited to
try techniques they had never seen before.
The leaves, fringes, chains, and ropes that
graced the pages of these books would
forever be known as Russian to beaders
here, including the lovely spiral rope Id like
to show you in this installment of Stitch Pro.
Russian spiral is one of the easiest spiral
ropes to do, but I also like it because its so
versatile. You can interchange bead color,
size, and type fairly easily for dramatically
different results. And because you add
several beads at a time when you stitch,
it works up fairly quickly.
Round 1: Place the needle on the thread
and string {1B and 3A} three times, leav-
ing a short tail to weave in later. Tie a
knot with the working and tail threads
to form a tight circle. Pass through the
first B strung (Fig.1). Note: In this
example, the A beads are purple and B
beads are green.
Round 2: String 3A and 1B, then pass
through the next B of Round 1; repeat
twice (Fig.2).

Rounds 3 and on: String 3A and 1B, skip
the nearest 3A, then pass through the
next B of the previous round; repeat to
the desired length (Fig.3). Note: There is
no step-up with this technique, as the
nets created with each stitch just con-
tinue to spiral up like a staircase.

Z hook, 3-hole bar, 2-hole bar, distressed oval, or distressed
slide with a loop in antique pewter, antique copper, bright
gold, or brass oxide (Z hook also available in black).

from Ezel Findings would be an asset to any jewelry design.
Low profile and lightweight, these magnetic clasps come in
gold, rose gold, bronze, and rhodium. Choose one with rhine-
stone accents for a touch of sparkle, or opt for a more classic

made in matte, metallic, shiny, and iridescent finishes. The
holes in these drops are large enough to accommodate wire or

into structured designs, hung from chain links, or turned into
mini dangles with wrapped-loop bails. Look for all 37 colors,
expected in stores this summer.

different color options. The striated open-weave center
panel and tight-knit edge make these knit wires a perfect
base to embellish. The self-locking knit will keep the wires
from unraveling after they are cut. (707) 887-2825,

by passing back through the last bead
added (Fig.2, red thread), or by weav-
ing through beads in a figure-eight
pattern to place the final bead and
step up (Fig.3).

This design is also striking in shades of orange,
copper, and bronze. Use opaque orange Czech
glass rounds in place of turquoise and a carnelian
nugget for the center dangle. Check the bead
bowl in your local bead store for a suitable dangle
bead. Something sparkly, like a fire opal crystal
teardrop would also work fine.

To form a spiraling pattern with
the embellishment beads, start by
placing a contrasting 3mm bead
in one position, then move that

Artists Tips
Barbara used Superduos for this project
instead of their Twin counterparts because
the tapered ends of the Superduos fit
together much better than the slightly thicker
ends of Twins.
Use either shorter or longer lengths of chain
to alter the finished length. Be sure that the
wrapped loops on the side of the beads are
positioned in the same direction (with the
open loop facing the front).
The beaded beads make great components
for other projects. For example, stitch them
together for a necklace or bracelet.
If the beaded bead tips forward, try
reinserting the wrapped loop slightly higher
than center. Raising the center of gravity can
prevent tipping. Also, you can use chain-nose
pliers to tweak the wrapped loops slightly
until the bead centers itself.

3 JOIN. Align the front and back of the
beaded bead so the C interlock, with the D
and A facing out. Use the working thread
of the back to *string 1A; pass through the
outside hole of the fronts next C. String
1A; pass through the outside hole of the
backs next C. Repeat from * seven times
to completely connect the front and back,
adding a total of 16A (Fig.3). Weave
through the beads again to reinforce;
secure the thread and trim. Set the
beaded bead aside.
4 ASSEMBLY. Connect chain, wire, and a
dangle to the body to finish the earring:
Dangle: Use 1 head pin to string 1 bead
cap from outside to inside and 1 melon
round; form a wrapped loop (Fig.4).
Set aside.
Link: Form a wrapped loop on one end of
one 2" piece of wire. String the beaded
bead, passing under the B of Round 1
and through the openings between the
C of Round 2 on either the front or the
back; form a wrapped loop, making sure
the first and second loops of the link
face the same direction (Fig.5).
1 FRONT. Use circular peyote stitch to
form the front of a beaded bead:
Round 1: Use 18" of thread to string 8B,
leaving a 3" tail; pass through the beads
again to form a tight circle and use the
working and tail threads to tie a knot
(Fig.1, blue thread). Secure and trim
the tail thread.
Center: String 1D; pass through the inside
hole of the opposite B in Round 1. Step
up through the outside hole of the same
B (Fig.1, red thread).
Round 2: String 1C and pass through the
outside hole of the next B in Round 1;
repeat seven times for a total of 8C
(Fig.2, blue thread).
Round 3: String 1A and pass through the
outside hole of the next B in Round 1;
repeat seven times for a total of 8A
(Fig.2, red thread). Note: Make sure the
A are on the same side of the beadwork
as the D. Secure the thread and trim.
Set the front of the earring aside.
2 BACK. Use 18" of thread to repeat
Step 1, but dont trim the thread. Weave
through beads to exit from an outside hole
of 1C added in Round 2.

Zip: Place the side of the square just
worked next to a second square so the
beads interlock like a zipper. Note: Take
care that the center C of each square lies
in the same direction. Weave the beads
together to create a seamless join, pass-
ing through the first bead exited on the
first square to complete the join (Fig.3,

Artists Tips
When stitching the squares, start with
medium tension and gradually increase
the tension in each round to keep the
squares from warping. Tying knots
can also cause the square to warp,
so I recommend not using knots.
You can reinforce any section of the
bracelet by just sewing back and forth
(or round and round) through the
Delicas, since the holes are large.
The crystals add a bit of glamour but
can be left out for a simpler look. Or,
try using 4mm pearl rounds instead
of crystal bicones.

ST. PETERSBURG SPIRAL Samx Kilgore
Combine St. Petersburg chain with netting to form a spiral-
ing strand thats pretty enough to wear alone as a necklace
and versatile enough to incorporate into other designs.
1 ROW 1. Work St. Petersburg chain to
form the first row of the spiral:
Stitch 1: Use 6' of thread to string 1A; slide
it to the center of the thread and pass
through it again to form a stop bead
(Fig.1, blue thread). String 6A; pass
through the third and fourth A just
added (Fig.1, red thread). Note: The last
2 beads added form the bottom column;
the previously strung beads form the
top column.
Stitch 2: String 1A; pass back down
through the last A exited and the
next 2A in the top column (Fig.2,
blue thread).
Stitch 3: String 1B; pass back up through
the nearest 2A of the bottom column
(Fig.2, red thread).
Stitch 4: String 4A; pass up through the
first 2A just added (Fig.3).

Fig. 4: Forming Clasp Loop 1 Fig. 5: Adding the first stitch of Row 2

2 CLASP LOOP 1. String 8A; pass back
through the last B added in Row 1 (Fig.4).
3 ROW 2. String 3A and pass through the
next B of Row 1 (Fig.5); repeat across
Row 1, keeping the tension firm, but not
so tight as to break the thread on the
sharp holes of the B.
4 CLASP LOOP 2. Remove the stop bead.
Use the working thread to string 5A; pass
through the first 4A added in Stitch 1,
Row1, to form a loop (Fig.6, blue thread).
Secure the thread and trim. Add a needle
to the tail and pass back through the 5A
just added, through the first B of Row 1,
and back through the last 2A added in
Row2 (Fig.6, red thread).
5 ROW 3. String 3A, skip 2A of Row 2,
and pass through the center A of the next
net in Row 2 (Fig.7); repeat across the row.
Repeat the thread path of Clasp Loop 1 to
reinforce. Secure the thread and trim.
6 ASSEMBLY. Use 1 jump ring to connect
one half of the clasp to each clasp loop.

PAS S T HROUGH VS
PAS S BACK T HROUGH
Pass through means to move the needle in the same direc-
tion that the beads have been strung. Pass back through
means to move the needle in the opposite direction.
F I NI S HI NG AND S TAR T I NG
NE W T HRE ADS
Tie off the old thread when its about 4" long by making
an overhand knot around previous threads between
beads. Weave through a few beads to hide the knot and
trim the thread close to the work. Start the new thread by
tying an overhand knot around previous threads between
beads. Weave through several beads to hide the knot and
to reach the place to resume beading.
S TOP BE AD
A stop bead (or tension bead) holds your work in place.
To make one, string a bead larger
than those you are working with,
then pass through the bead one or
more times, making sure not to split
the thread.
L ADDE R S T I TCH
For one-needle ladder stitch, string 2 beads and pass
through them again. Manipulate the beads so their sides
touch. String 1 bead. Pass through the last stitched bead
and the one just strung. Repeat, adding 1 bead at a time
and working in a figure-eight pattern.
F RI NGE
Exit from the foundation row
of beads or fabric. String a length
of beads plus 1 bead. Skipping the
last bead, pass back through all
the beads just strung to form
a fringe leg. Pass back into the
foundation row or fabric.
HE RRI NGBONE S T I TCH
Form a foundation row of one- or two-needle even-count
ladder stitch and exit up through the final bead. String
2 beads, pass down through next bead in the ladder, and
up through the following bead; repeat to the end of the
row. Step up for the next row by wrapping the thread
around previous threads to exit up through the last bead
strung. To form the next row, string 2 beads and pass
down through the second-to-last bead of the previous row
and up through the following bead. Repeat, stringing
2 beads per stitch, passing down then up through 2 beads
of the previous row, and stepping up as before. The 2-bead
stitch will cause the beads to angle in each column, like a
herringbone fabric.
Begin tubular herringbone stitch with a foundation ring
of one- or two-needle even-count ladder stitch. String
2 beads. Pass down through the next bead and up through
the following bead. Repeat around the ring. At the end of
the round, pass through the first beads of the previous
and current rounds to step up to the new round.
NE T T I NG
String a base row of 13 beads. String 5 beads and pass
back through the fifth bead from the end of the base row.
String another 5 beads, skip 3 beads of the base row, and
pass back through the next; repeat to the end of the row.
To turn, pass back through the last 3 beads (one leg of
the last net). String 5 beads, pass back through the center
bead of the next net, and continue.
For circular netting, string a multiple of 4 beads; pass
through them again to form the foundation round. String
3 beads, skip 3 beads in the foundation round, and pass
through the following bead to form a net; repeat around
the foundation round. Step up for the next round by pass-
ing through the first 2 beads added in this round. *String
3 beads and pass through the center bead of the next net
in the previous round; repeat to connect all the nets from
the previous round. Step up through the first 2 beads
added in this round. Repeat from * to the desired length.
PE YOT E S T I TCH
For one-drop even-count flat peyote stitch, string
an even number of beads to create the first two rows.
Begin the third row by stringing 1 bead and passing back
through the second-to-last bead of the previous row.
String another bead and pass back through the fourth-to-
last bead of the previous row. Continue adding 1 bead at a
time, passing over every other bead of the previous row.
Two-drop peyote stitch is worked the same as one-drop
peyote stitch, but with 2 beads at a time instead of 1 bead.
For odd-count flat peyote stitch, string an uneven
number of beads to create Rows 1 and 2. String 1 bead,
skip the last bead strung, and pass through the next bead.
Repeat across the row (this is Row 3). To add the last
bead, string 1 bead and knot the tail and working threads,
clicking all beads into place. Start the next row (Row 4)
by passing back through the last bead added. Continue in
peyote stitch, turning as for even-count, shown above, at
the end of this and all even-numbered rows. At the end of
all odd-numbered rows, add the last bead, string 1 bead,
pass under the thread loop at the edge of the previous
rows, and pass back through the last bead added.
Begin a midproject peyote-stitch increase by working a
stitch with 2 beads in one row. In the next row, work
1 bead in each stitch, splitting the pair of beads in the pre-
vious row. For a smooth increase, use very narrow beads
for both the two-drop and the one-drop between.
These basic instructions are for techniques used in this issues projects and are from The Beaders Companion
(Interweave, 2005). Dont have this popular book? Call (800) 272-2193 or visit interweavestore.com.

BEADWORK june/july 2013 93
To make a midproject peyote-stitch decrease, simply
pass the thread through 2 beads without adding a bead in
the gap. In the next row, work a regular one-drop peyote
stitch over the decrease. Work with tight tension to
avoid holes.
For circular peyote stitch, string 3 beads and knot the tail
and working threads to form the first round; pass through
the first bead strung. For the second round, string 2 beads
and pass through the next bead of the previous round;
repeat twice. To step up to the third round, pass through
the first bead of the current round. For the third round,
string 1 bead and pass through the next bead of the previ-
ous round; repeat around, then step up at the end of the
round. Continue in this manner, alternating the two pre-
vious rounds. It may be necessary to adjust the bead
count, depending on the relative size of the beads, to keep
the circle flat.
For even-count tubular peyote stitch, string an even
number of beads and knot the tail and working threads to
form the first 2 rounds; pass through the first 2 beads
strung. To work Round 3, string 1 bead, skip 1 bead, and
pass through the next; repeat around until you have
added half the number of beads in the first round. Step
up through the first bead added in this round. For the
following rounds, work 1 bead in each stitch and continue
to step up at the end of each round.
Work odd-count tubular peyote stitch the same as
even-count tubular peyote stitch, but it isnt necessary
to step up at the end of each round.
RI GHT ANGL E WE AVE
For single-needle right-angle weave, string 4 beads and
pass through the first 3 beads again to form the first unit.
For the rest of the row, string 3 beads and pass through
the last bead exited in the previous unit and the first
2 just strung; the thread path will resemble a series of
figure eights, alternating directions with each unit. To
begin the next row, pass through beads to exit the top
bead of the last unit. String 3 beads and pass through
the last bead exited and the first bead just strung.
*String 2 beads, pass back through the next top bead of
the previous row, the last bead exited in the previous unit,
and the 2 beads just strung. Pass through the next top
bead of the previous row, string 2 beads, pass through the
last bead of the previous unit, the top bead just exited,
and the first bead just strung. Repeat from * to complete
the row, then begin a new row as before.
To begin double-needle right-angle weave, add a needle
to each end of the thread. Use one needle to string
3 beads and slide them to the center of the thread. *Use
one needle to string 1 bead, then pass the other needle
back through it. String 1 bead on each needle, then repeat
from * to form a chain of right-angle-weave units. To turn
at the end of the row, use the left needle to string 3 beads,
then cross the right needle back through the last bead
strung. Use the left needle to string 3 beads, then cross
the right needle back through the last bead strung. To
continue the row, use the right needle to string 2 beads;
pass the left needle through the next bead on the previous
row and back through the last bead strung.
S QUARE S T I TCH
String a row of beads. For the second row, string 2 beads;
pass through the second-to-last bead of the first row and
through the second bead just strung. Continue by string-
ing 1 bead, passing through the third-to-last bead of the
first row, and through the bead just strung. Repeat this
looping technique to the end of the row.
S T RI NGI NG
Stringing is a technique that uses beading wire,
needle and thread, or other material to gather beads
into a strand.
PI COT
A picot is a decorative net, most often made with 3 beads,
used to embellish a beadwork surface.
HAL F HI TCH KNOT
Half-hitch knots may be worked with two or more
strandsone strand is knotted over one or more other
strands. Form a loop around the cord(s). Pull the end
through the loop just formed and pull tight. Repeat for
the length of cord you want to cover.
OVE RHAND KNOT
This is the basic knot for tying off thread. Make a loop
with the stringing material. Pass the cord that lies behind
the loop over the front cord and through the loop;
pull snug.
S QUARE KNOT
This knot is the classic sturdy knot suitable for most
stringing materials. Make an overhand knot, passing the
right end over the left end. Make another overhand knot,
this time passing the left end over the right end; pull snug.
BACKS T I TCH BE AD E MBROI DE RY
Tie a knot at the end of the thread. Pass up through the
foundation from back to front. *String 4 beads and lay
them against the foundation. Pass down through the
foundation next to the last bead added. Pass up through
the foundation between the second and third beads just
added, then pass through the third and fourth beads.
Repeat from *.

S PI RAL ROPE
The basic formula for a spiral rope has larger beads as
the center core, with smaller and more beads in the outer
loops. String 4A (core) and 5B (loop). Pass through the As
again, forming a D shape. *String 1A and 5B; pass through
the top 3A and the 1A just strung. Repeat from *.
CRI MPI NG
Crimp tubes are seamless metal tubes used to secure the
end of a beading wire. To use, string a crimp tube and
the connection finding (i.e., the loop of the clasp). Pass
back through the tube, leaving a short tail. Use the front
notch of the crimping pliers to gently press the length of
the tube, causing the tube to form into an oval and the
wire ends to line each side of the tube. Move the tube to
the back notch of the crimping pliers and firmly press the
tube down, enclosing the wire ends in separate chambers
of the crescent shape. Rotate the tube 90 and use the
front notch to fold the two chambers onto themselves,
forming a clean cylinder. Trim the excess wire.Twisted
crimp tubes are added to wire and findings in the same
way, but they are secured by squeezing once with chain-
or flat-nose pliers.
WI RE WORKI NG
To open a jump ring, grasp each
side of its opening with a pair of
pliers. Dont pull apart. Instead,
twist in opposite directions so
that you can open and close it
without distorting the rings shape. without distorting the rings shape. without distorting the rings shape.
techniques (continued)
For a simple loop, use flat-nose pliers to
make a 90 bend at least " from the end
of the wire. Use round-nose pliers to grasp
the wire at the tip; roll the pliers toward
the bend, but not past it, to preserve the
90 bend. Adjust the pliers as needed to
continue the wrap around the nose of the
pliers. Trim the wire next to the bend.
Open a simple loop by grasping each side of its opening
with a pair of pliers. Dont pull apart. Instead, twist in
opposite directions so that you can open and close it
without distorting the loops shape.
To form a wrapped loop, begin with a 90 bend at least 2"
from the end of the wire. Use round-nose pliers to form a
simple loop with a tail overlapping the bend. Wrap the tail
tightly down the neck of the wire two or three times. Trim
the excess wire to finish. Make a thicker, heavier-looking
wrapped loop by wrapping the wire back up over the coils,
toward the loop, and trimming at the loop.

BEAD ALL ABOUT IT!
Kate Wilson
The Beaded Body Comes to Life
Bead artist Darcy Horn is on a mission to cover a life-size mannequin
entirely with freeform peyote- and brick-stitched seed beads in her
recent project, The Beaded Body. In 2012, she raised more than $3,000
on the fund-raising website Kickstarter to fund the estimated 1,000
hours of work and 5,200 grams of seed beads it will take to cover the
5' 7" form. She chose a red, blue, and purple color palette, inspired by
the 2012 U.S. election maps, to communicate her message of uniting
people. Darcy plans to complete the project by December 2013 for
entry in The Figure Now/Exhibition 2014 in St. Louis, Missouri. Visit
her website at www.thejadedog.com.
If you love finding and sharing new beading ideas, take a look at the
new beading boards popping up on Pinteresta website that enables
users to search for, save, share, and organize ideas onto a virtual
pinboard. Weve just discovered a board full of great two-hole seed
bead inspiration! Check it out at www.pinterest.com/naspirale/

bead artist by Chloe Chatenever
Paul Medeiros began creating beaded
tapestries as a hobby in the 1960s. As one
of just a handful of people practicing bead-
weaving on such a large scale, Paul has been
an innovator as well as an artist, inventing
and fine-tuning many of the techniques
required to craft large beadwoven images.
Q: What inspires you?
A: I would have to say that what inspires
me to do what I do is to make my pieces
look more like a picture than a picture
made of beads. Just like the artists that
are doing wonders in jewelry with beads,
I am trying to take loomwork to a new
level.
Q: How do you start your projects?
A: With modern technology and a com-
puter, you can create any picture in beads.
After deciding on a subject, I go to the
computer and scan in a picture. Software
then graphs the picture in a cross-stich
pattern. Then comes color selection,
which can be as time-consuming as doing
the tapestry itself. This is where you
decide what colors you will use to create
different effects. [Next, I] break down the
pattern into row numbers with bead
counts plus color codes, thus creating a
road map. Finally, I build my own looms
out of scrap lumber.
Q: What do you find most rewarding
about the process of creating your
woven tapestries?
A: The finished tapestry is obviously very
rewarding, but seeing the tapestry slowly
start to take form and become what I
envisioned is rewarding as well. Of
course, being able to show my tapestries
to people who have never seen beadwork
done in this medium and on this scale is
also rewarding. After spending as much
time as it takes to create a tapestry, you
definitely want others to see it.
Q: Beadweaving sounds like a labor of
love for you. Can you tell us about what
makes beadwoven artwork so unique?
A: When I finish any tapestry, the recipi-
ent of that tapestry will have a one-of-a-
kind piece of artwork. Even though the
loomwork is very time-consuming, I can
take a relatively simple process and
expand on the size to get more detail out
of my work, which is ultimately my goal.
Q: How long does it usually take you
to finish a project?
A: [My] original tapestries were created
using size 11 Czech seed beads and
required more time to select the beads
that were used. Through the years, my
working stock of beads improved, which
meant I could select beads quicker and
finish the tapestries sooner. My last two
tapestries, Mount Rainier and New Mexico
Organ Mountains, were done with Japa-
nese Delica seed beads. I can tell you that
even though I still hand-select each bead
and it took 680 hours to complete New
Mexico Organ Mountains, it was still faster
than when I was using the Czech seed
beads. No matter the amount of detail in
the pattern or the size of the tapestry you
decide to create, you have to be very
patient with the process.
