I Beading
Between magazine and book deadlines and a toddler and a
baby at home, its understandable why I havent taught a workshop in a few years. Yet after a wonderful day spent with the
Rocky Mountain Bead Society, I quickly remembered just how
much I love teaching. Being able to have one-on-one interaction with like-minded crafters always renews my passion for
beading and reminds me that our community is full of wonderful and welcoming people. Regardless of our backgrounds, we can always come
together and bond over our common love of beads. You can make these connections
through your local bead society, at bead shops and bead shows, and on Facebook.
I hope you also feel this sense of belonging while making the projects in our
magazine because, via these pages, the designers are sharing their creativity
with you.
Here are a few of this issues projects that renew my love for beads, and I hope
they do the same for you. Take just one look at the multiple colorways Susan Severs
Council made of her Indian Summer Bracelet (page 54) and youll see how much fun
she has with SuperDuos. If youre like me and appreciate clever closures, youll adore
Designer of the Year Leslee Frumins intriguing way to conceal clasps in her
Ambassador Bridge Bracelet (page 26). Christine Wilsons passion for both seed
beads and metal is evident in her Adelaides Soiree necklace (page 42), which also
features a playful way to embellish rivolis with Rizos. If youre new to beadweaving
or are looking for a design you can make in about an hour, try the easy Anemone
Bracelet by Elaine Teevens (page 62).
As always, thank you for joining me on this wonderful journey! Please reach out

Have you ever had a serendipitous beading mishap?

When I was learning


to make bead-crochet
ropes, the process was
going so poorly that
I missed the most
important tenet: relax!
And the second-most
important tenet: move
the bead to the right
over the hook. When
I suddenly realized
these rules, my
crocheted ropes began
to work.
Svetlana Chernitsky

I chose topaz and


brown to make a
Kassie Shaw Inman
pattern. Part way
through, I realized
I disliked the colors.
I showed Kassie the
bracelet, calling it the
snot-way colorway.
Kassie loved the
colorway and finished
the bracelet. What
looks terrible to one
person can look
beautiful to another.

I usually have more


beads than necessary
on my mat, especially
bronze seeds and
cubes. For a bracelet,
I was making peyote
squares, and after
making a few squares,
I decided to pick up
another color and
insert a 1.5mm cube
along with bronze
15s, and that changed
the look in a nice way.

All of the time! Some


of my best design ideas
have come from
making a mistake.
I like to look at all
mistakes as learning
opportunities. It gives
you a chance to look at
a design from a new
and different angle.

I had leftover Czech


flower beads and seed
bead calyxes. The
flower beads seemed
perfect for a charmstyle bracelet, but the
seed beads seemed too
small to have any
impact. I saw French
beaded flowers and
was inspired to make
drops using the seed
beads with wire.
Voila lacy but
substantial bracelet.
Elaine Teevens

I have a tendency not


to preplan my work,
which leaves a lot of
opportunity for
serendipity. The bezel
around Bohemian
Rhapsody Cuff
(Beadwork, June/July
2012) resulted when
the initial bead
surround was too
large. A more
interesting pattern,
colorway, and texture
evolved when I worked
to tighten it.
Christine Wilson

I made a bracelet once


with galvanized matte
beads, and my needle
kept scratching the
surface and leaving
marks. It was very
frustrating until
someone remarked
that she loved the
finish on the beads
and wanted to know
where I got them.

While designing an
earring project for my
book Bead
Metamorphosis
(coming in November
from Interweave),
I created a component
with chain to be
oriented one way but
had trouble making it
hang right. I took a
break and came back
to simply flip the
design 180 degrees.
Wow, the new
orientation made all
the difference.

While staying on a
boat and making a
project from
Beadwork, I lacked
peanut beads and
used drops instead.
That didnt work, but
before destroying my
project, I turned the
piece inside out, and
that looked
interesting. I just
needed different
finishing. That
bracelet was accepted
for Beadworks
February/March 2013
W.O.R.D. page!

Lisa Kan

Tatiana Mueller

I wanted to make a
bracelet, but I chose
the wrong size of
beads. Therefore the
shape of the
component got
distorted. It was an
interesting shape, so
I created a pendant
from it.

I had the pleasure of watching Marcia DeCoster film her Right-Angle


Weave Fundamentals video workshop in our studio, and I cant express
how much she inspired me! Her thread path for cubic right-angle
weave is more fun and straightforward than the one I used to use, and
Marcia showed me that its a great technique to use with crystal
bicones (along with some 3mm fire-polished rounds from my stash).
Short fringes decorate one end near a clasp Ive hoarded for years.

The beads in this pack worked together so beautifully that I wanted


to use them all. I needed a focal and some seed beads, so I added a
polymer clayface cabochon that I had already made, and I kept to a
similar palette using galvanized Miyuki size 11s and 15s and more
Czech glass flowers and petals. I love the crunchy texture that crystal
gives to bead embroidery, and I accentuated this effect with
freeform fringes and raised textures.

I knew immediately that I wanted to do a beaded bead. The


shapes and sizes were really nice. The purples and greens spoke
most to me, and I added various sizes of seed beads to make this
beaded bead tassel, which is based on one I designed for a class. I
stitched a long herringbone rope with crystal breaks to give it that
1920s flapper look, so this is my Fancy Flapper Pendant.

The green pressed-glass beads appealed to me the most, so I based


my colors on those. Ive always used crystals as accents, never as
main components. So I worked backward, picking my accents first
and then finding a focal piece. I was tying the last knot when disaster
struck: My dog jarred my arm hard enough that I cut through the
knot, which meant I was back to being halfway done. But I met the
Challenge and finished on time!

TECHNIQUES YOU CAN'T BEAD WITHOUT

Managing
Doubled
Thread
Jean Campbell

In my never-ending effort to achieve perfect right-angle-weave


tension, I recently watched Marcia DeCosters video, Right-Angle
Weave Fundamentals, to see if she had any good pointers. Of
course, she did! One of the things that struck me most, however, is that Marcias stitching looks so good because she uses
doubled thread just about all the time.
Doubled thread isnt the easiest thing to handle; for example,
if it gets tangled you can end up with a big mess. Because of
this, Marcia includes many tips in her video for managing
doubled thread. This encouraged me to embrace it, too, and
got me thinking. Ive actually learned quite a bit about using
doubled thread during my years of beading and teaching,
so I have a tip or two to share as well.

3) Generously wax the doubled thread before


you start stitching. Do so by pinching both
threads at the needles eye and waxing away
from the needle. Then smooth out the waxed
threads by pulling your fingers down the
length of the thread so the threads stick together and it looks like one thick thread. Note:
Use beeswax or microcrystalline wax for this;
thread conditioner wont provide the stickiness
required to keep the threads together.
DEALING WITH TANGLES

WHEN TO USE DOUBLED THREAD


Doubled thread works great for quickly filling

the holes of beads, which is an excellent way to


tighten and shape your beadwork, especially
right-angle weave.
Using doubled thread is a smart way to
work with larger beads, such as sizes 8 and 6,
as well as the myriad of new two-hole shaped
beads. The thicker thread helps stabilize
the stitching.

Be sure your bead holes are wide enough


to use doubled thread! For size 15 seed beads,
youll be able to make only one, maybe
two passes with doubled thread, so plan
accordingly.

PREPARING A DOUBLED THREAD


1) To double a thread, start with twice the

amount you usually use. So, if you usually stitch


with 3' of thread, cut a 6' length from the spool.
2) Place the needle on the thread, pair the

Doubled thread is a good option when work-

ing with beads that have sharp holes, such as


bugles and some crystals. The added thread
makes a nice buffer to reduce thread abrasion.

thread ends, and pinch the ends together


while you slide the needle to the center of the
thread.

Part of the problem with using doubled thread


is that if you have a tangle or need to rip out
some of your work, youre dealing with the
potential of two threads getting turned into a
tangled mess, not just one. Plus, once you start
stitching, you cant just pull your needle off of
the thread to deal with knots, since the needle
is essentially trapped in place. There are workarounds, though, including these tips:
If you need to rip out your work, loosen the
threads from the last stitch and pull on the
thread so that the needle backs through the
last bead, eye first. Backing up like this (rather
than going pointy-end first) drastically reduces
the potential of the threads getting split apart
and creating a bigger tangle.

SEE P. 94 FOR HELPFUL TECHNIQUE INFORMATION. SEE P. 4 FOR PROJECT-LEVEL INFORMATION.

5/21/14 2:33 PM

Try This!

You can easily start a project with single thread, then switch to double
by pulling the loose end of the thread a bit beyond the point where the
working thread exits the beadwork and sliding the needle down the
thread so it becomes doubled, as shown in Fig. 1. You can also reverse
from double to single by cutting one of the threads close to the beadwork and pulling the needle away from the work.

If you have such a big tangle that you cant

back up, carefully cut just one of the threads


close to the beadwork so that you have one
thread again. Remove the needle and untangle
the knot. Place the needle back on the thread,
double and wax the thread, and continue
working. This will, in effect, redouble your
thread for you.

GLENDA PAUNONEN AND LIISA TURUNEN

Use tubular herringbone to create three long chains; then braid,


bind, and embellish them with crystals for a dramatic look.

1) ROPES. Form a ladder-stitched ring, then

work tubular herringbone stitch to form the


necklace ropes:
Rounds1 and 2: Use 4' of gold nylon beading thread to string 4A, leaving an 8" tail.
Pass through all 4A again to form a circle,
then manipulate to form 2 columns with 2A
each (Fig.1, green thread). String 2A, pass
through the last 2A exited and the 2A just
added; repeat (Fig.1, blue thread). Fold
the beadwork so the first 2A column and
the final 2A column sit side by side; squarestitch the 4A together to form a ring; exit
up through the first column (Fig.1,
red thread).
Round3: String 2A, pass down through the
next A of the previous round and up
through the following A; repeat. Step up for
this and subsequent rounds by passing up
through the first bead added in the current
round (Fig.2; shown flat for clarity).
Rounds4 to end: Repeat Round3 until the
rope is 41" long. Dont trim the thread; set
the gold rope aside.
Jet rope: Use black nylon beading thread and
B to repeat Rounds1 and 2, then repeat
Round3 for 45". Dont trim the thread; set
the jet rope aside.
Bronze rope: Use brown nylon beading
thread and C to repeat Rounds1 and 2,
then repeat Round3 for 48". Dont trim the
thread; set the bronze rope aside.

2) SLIDERS. Work right-angle weave and


tubular peyote stitch to form the small, round
necklace sliders:
Unit1: Use 2' of braided beading thread to
string 4D, leaving a 6" tail. Pass through all
4D again to form a tight circle; pass through
3 more D (Fig.3, green thread).
Units25: String 3D, then pass through the
last D exited and the first 2D just added;
repeat three times (Fig.3, blue thread).
Unit6: Fold the strip so the first and last units
touch. String 1D; pass up through the end D
of Unit1. String 1D; pass down through the
end D of Unit5, forming a ring. Repeat the
thread path to reinforce. Weave through
beads to exit from a top D (Fig.3,
red thread).
Top edge: String 1A and pass through the
next top D; repeat five times. Weave
through beads to exit from a D along the
bottom of the ring (Fig.4, blue thread;
shown flat for clarity).
Bottom edge: String 1A and pass through
the next bottom D; repeat five times. Secure
the thread and trim (Fig.4, red thread).
Set the gold slider aside.
Repeat this entire step seven times for a total of
8 gold sliders. Repeat this entire step eight
more times, using B and E instead of A and D,
for a total of 8 jet sliders. Repeat this entire step
eight more times, using C and F instead of A
and D, for a total of 8 bronze sliders.

3) BINDERS. Use right-angle weave and

tubular peyote stitch to form the large, oval


necklace binders:
Units1 and 2: Use 4' of braided beading
thread to repeat Step 2, Units1 and 2.
Units3 and 4: Use E to repeat Step 2,
Unit2 twice.
Units57: Use F to repeat Step 2, Unit2
three times.
Units8 and 9: Use E to repeat Step 2,
Unit2 twice.
Unit10: String 1D; pass up through the end D
of Unit1. String 1D; pass down through the
end D of Unit9, forming a ring. Repeat the
thread path to reinforce. Weave through
beads to exit from the nearest top D
(Fig.5).
Top edge: String 1B and pass through the
next top E of the ring; repeat around, adding the same color size 11 seed bead as the
vertical crystal bicone below. Weave
through beads to exit from a D along the
bottom of the ring.
Bottom edge: Repeat the top edge, this time
connecting the bottom bicones of each
unit. Dont trim the thread. Set aside.
Repeat this entire step three times for a total
of 4 binders.
4) ASSEMBLY. Connect the ropes, add the
binders and sliders, and braid the ropes:
End 1: Align the ends of the 3 ropes in length
order from short to long (gold, jet, bronze)

24

BEADWORKMAGAZINE.COM

22-25 Meow Necklace-PaunonenTurunen.indd 24

Fig.6: Securing the rope ends

so they sit side by side. Use the existing


working threads to square-stitch the last
2rounds of the gold rope to the jet rope
and the jet rope to the bronze rope so the
3ropes are aligned and flat (Fig.6). Dont
trim the thread.
Binder1: Slide 1 binder onto all 3 chains so
that its 8" from the bound end. Line up the
binder so that the color of bicones lines up
with the color of the ropes (Fig.7). Use the
working thread of the binder to securely
stitch it to the ropes, stitching the ropes
together here as well so they are aligned
from short to long as with the bound end.
Secure this thread and trim. Note: Its okay if
the ropes slightly twist and/or cross over
each other.
Braid 1: Use your fingers to braid all 3 ropes
five times or for 6", finishing the braid so the
ropes are still in order from short to long.
Sliders, Set1: Use the gold rope to string
2gold sliders and push the sliders into the
braid so they sit on the outside of the final
2braids; repeat to add 2jet sliders to the jet
rope and 2 bronze sliders to the bronze rope.
Binder2: Slide 1 binder onto all 3 ropes so it
sits at the end of the braid. Repeat the
Binder1 connection to secure this binder
in place.
Sliders, Set2: Use each rope to string
3 sliders in matching colors as before.
Binder3: Slide 1 binder onto all 3 ropes.
Adjust the ropes so the distance between

binders on the gold rope measures 11", the


jet rope measures 15", and the bronze rope
measures 19". Repeat the Binder1 connection to secure this binder in place.
Braid 2: Repeat Braid 1.
Sliders, Set3: Repeat Sliders, Set1, but add
3sliders to each rope and push the sliders
into the braid so they sit on the outside of
the first 3 braids.
Binder4: Repeat Binder1.
End 2: Work more tubular herringbone stitch
as needed to even the rope ends, adding
more thread as needed. Square-stitch the
3rope ends together as with End 1. Secure
all the threads and trim.
5) CLASP. Start 12" of new thread that exits
out through one end of the gold rope. String
1 gold pearl, 4 size 15 seed beads, the first
loop of one half of the clasp, and 3 size 15
seed beads; pass back through the pearl
and into the rope. Weave through beads to
exit out through the end of the jet rope.
Repeat this entire step for the jet rope, using
a jet pearl and connecting to the second
clasp loop, and for the bronze rope, using
a bronze pearl and connecting to the third
clasp loop (Fig.8). Repeat the entire
thread path to reinforce; secure the
thread and trim.
Repeat this entire step at the other end of the
necklace using the other half of the clasp.

artists tips
For sizing, calculate 1" beyond your wrist size for overall
length of the base (for a 5" wrist, the overall length is 6").
The purpose is to conceal the clasp and make a seamless design.
The first stitch in each row of the brick-stitched fans has
2 beads. Subsequent beads are added 1 by 1.
Choose high-contrast colors to highlight the diamond pattern.
Before embellishing the fans, make sure the second fan overlaps
the first fan and all subsequent fans overlap the previous ones.

Fig.7: Embellishing and connecting the fans

thread loop as the previous stitch to form


an increase (Fig.5, orange thread).
Fan 1, Row 4: Work 1 stitch with 1C and 1D
and 3 stitches with 1D in each stitch. Work
1 stitch with 1C, passing under the same
thread loop as the previous stitch to form
an increase (Fig.5, green thread).
Fan 1, Row 5: Work 1 stitch with 2C. Work
5 stitches with 1C in each stitch, passing the
last stitch under the same thread loop as
the previous stitch to form an increase
(Fig.5, blue thread).
Fan 1, Row 6: String 1A and pass under the
last thread loop of Fan 1, Row 5; repeat five
times to add a whipstitch edging to the fan
thread loops. String 1A; pass down through
the first C of Fan 1, Row 5 and continue
down through the remaining edge C, pulling tight, and continue through the D
below on the same angle. Weave through
beads to exit from the first fully exposed D
along the edge of the bracelet (Fig.5, red
thread).
Fan 2, Row 1: Work 1 stitch with 1C and 1D,
and 1 stitch with 1C (Fig.6, green thread).
Fan 2, Row 2: String 1C and 1D, and 1 stitch
with 1D. Work 1 stitch with 1C, passing
under the same thread loop as the previous
stitch to form an increase (Fig.6, blue
thread).
Fan 2, Rows 36: Repeat Fan 1, Rows 36,
allowing this fan to overlap the previous
fan (Fig.6, red thread).

Fans 323: Repeat Fan 2 twenty-one times,

leaving " of the edge exposed at the end


of the base for the clasp.
Repeat this entire step on the other edge of the
base, forming mirror fans.
4) EMBELLISHMENT. Start 18" of new

thread that exits up through the first D in


Fan 1, Row 3. String 1B, 1E, and 2B, then pass
up through the first D of Row 3 in the next fan
from back to front; repeat twenty-one times to
connect all of the fans (Fig.7, blue thread;
fans spaced out for clarity). For the final fan,
string 1B, 1E and 2B; pass down through the
third D of Fan 23, Row 3 (Fig.7, red thread).
Secure the thread and trim. Repeat this entire
step to connect the fans on the other side of
the bracelet.
5) SNAP. Start 16" of new thread that exits
from Point Row 4. Securely stitch the male side
of the snap to the base over the patterned diamond; dont trim the thread. Start 16" of new
thread that exits from the center D of the final
row at the other end of the base. Securely
stitch the female side of the snap to the other
side of the base (Fig.8, blue thread), checking to make sure that when overlapped, the
bracelet fits; weave this thread through beads
to exit from the first D of the final base row,
toward the center.

the end D of the final base row. String 2B,
the other loop of the same clasp half, and
3B, then pass through the last D exited;
repeat the thread path twice to reinforce
(Fig.8, red thread). Secure this thread
and trim.

These lightweight swing-style earrings are easy to make and full


of possibilitiesa fabulous project for using up small quantities
of beads.
1) SWING. Work right-angle weave to form
the earring dangle:
Row1: Use 5' of thread and B to form a strip
of right-angle weave 8 units long. Exit up
through the side B at the end of the strip.
Row2, first pass: String 3B; pass through the
top B of the final unit in Row1 (Fig.1, blue
thread). *String 1A; pass through the bottom B of the same Row1 unit, back through
the A just added, and through the top B of
the same Row1 unit. String 1A; pass
through the top B of the following Row1
unit. Repeat from * seven times, omitting
the final A (Fig.1, red thread).
Row2, second pass: Flip the work horizontally so the beads added in this pass are on
the reverse side of the beadwork. String 3B;
pass down through the side B at the end of
Row1, Unit 1, and the bottom B of the same
unit (Fig.2, green thread). String 1A; pass
back through the top B of the same Row1
unit and the A just added. Pass through the
bottom B of the first Row1 unit, back
through the A just added, and back through
the top B of the first Row1 unit. Pass
through the nearest A of Row2s first pass

and the top B of the next unit (Fig.2, blue


thread). String 1A, pass through the bottom B of the same Row1 unit, back through
the A just added, through the last top B
exited, through the nearest A, and the top B
of the following unit; repeat six times to add
a second layer of A down the center of
Row1. Note: This pass allows the earring to
be reversible. Weave through beads to exit
from the bottom B of Row1, Unit 8 (Fig.2,
red thread).
Row3: String 2B, 1D, and 1B; pass back
through the 1D and second B just added.
String 1B; pass through the next bottom B
of Row1; repeat six times (Fig.3, blue
thread). Weave through beads, looping
around threads as necessary to turn around,
to exit from the bottom B of the final fringe
formed in this row, toward the work (Fig.3,
red thread).
Row4: String 1B, 1C, and 3B; pass through the
C just added to form a picot. String 1B; pass
through the bottom B of the next fringe in
Row3. Repeat from the beginning of this
row five times. Weave through beads to exit
from the bottom B of the final picot, toward
the center (Fig.4).

pass, like the second pass in Row2, makes
the earring reversible. Weave through
beads to exit from the end 1B/1D/1B set,
toward the center (Fig.6, blue thread).
Row6: String 1B and pass through the next
1B/1D/1B set of Row5; repeat three times
(Fig.6, red thread). Secure the thread
and trim.

Inspired by the gorgeous Picasso finish on the two-hole beads


used to create it, this floral bracelet is formed by framing
pearls with a square stitch variation and fringe, then linking the
resulting blossoms together.
1) SMALL BLOSSOMS. Use fairly tight tension to work a square stitch variation, forming
the small blossoms:
Stitch1: Use 2' of thread to string 2B, 2A, 1C,
2A, 2B, 2A, 1C, and 2A, leaving a 6" tail; pass
through the first 2B added in this stitch
(Fig.1).
Stitch2: String 2B, 2A, 1C, 2A, and 2B; pass
through the 4B of the previous stitch and
the first 2B just added (Fig.2). Note: Keep all
of the C on one side of the beadwork.
Stitches 37: Repeat Stitch2 five times.
Stitch8: String 4B; pass through the 4B of the
previous stitch and the first 2B just added
(Fig.3).
Connect: Making sure the beadwork isnt
twisted, and with the C pointing out, fold
the strip so that Stitches 1 and 8 touch. Pass
through the 4B of Stitch 1 and the 4B of
Stitch8 to form a ring (Fig.4). Exit toward
the center of the ring.
Center: String 1D; pass through the mirror B
on the other side of the ring, weave back
through beads to exit the last B exited, and
pass through the D (Fig.5, blue thread).

Weave through the B on the other half of


the ring and pass through the D again
(Fig.5, red thread). Secure the working
thread and trim. Use the tail thread to pass
through all the B on the other side of the
ring to reinforce; secure the tail thread and
trim. Set aside.
Repeat this entire step four times for a total of
5 small blossoms.
2) LARGE BLOSSOMS. Stitch large blos-

soms while connecting them to the small


blossoms, forming a chain:
Stitches 1 and 2: Repeat Step 1, Stitches 1
and 2.
Stitches 39: Repeat Step 1, Stitch2 seven
times.
Stitches 10 and 11: Repeat Step 1, Stitch2
twice, but instead of adding 1C in each
stitch, connect to 1C of a small blossom in
each stitch instead (Fig.6, green thread).
Stitch12: Repeat Step 1, Stitch8 (Fig.6,
blue thread).
Connect: Repeat Step 1, connect (Fig.6,
red thread).

When LAURA ANDREWS was a child, her


mother, a very talented artist, taught her beading
while sharing the importance of originality.
Training in art, color, theatrical costuming,
lampworking, metalwork, wireworking, and
communication led Laura to teaching. Travels,
teaching, and friends from around the globe
provide her inspiration. Laura teaches at many
bead societies, shows, and shops throughout the
United States, the United Kingdom, and
Germany. To view Lauras designs and upcoming
classes, visit www.lauraandrews.com.

You may use even larger pearls for


the blossom centers; just adjust the
stitch count around the pearl to make
up for the bigger size.
Experiment with other beads, such
as stones or crystals, for the blossom
centers to create a different look.

4) ASSEMBLY. Connect the bezels and add


the chain and clasp:
Bezels: Remove 1 link from the chain and use
it to connect the button link of 1 bezel to a
second bezel (Fig.6); repeat to connect all
of the bezels into a chain, taking care that
all of the bezels face up.
Swags: Connect one end of a 20-link chain to
the button link on the left side of the first
bezel and the other end to the left button
link on the second bezel (Fig.7, blue
rings). Connect one end of an 18-link chain
to the button link on the right side of the
first bezel, skip over the previous chain and

the second bezel, and connect the other


end of the chain to the left button link on
the third bezel (Fig.7, red rings); repeat,
adding 18-link chain swags down the
length of the necklace, taking care to attach
the chains on the bottom side of each button link so the swags all hang correctly and
to layer each chain on top of the previous
chain. Note: Use a 20-link chain for the final
swag and connect it to the right side of the
last bezel.
Clasp: Connect one end of an 11-link chain
to the button link of the first bezel, above
the swag already placed; connect the
other end to a ring on one half of the clasp.
Connect one end of a 13-link chain to the
second link of the first swag; connect the
other end to the second ring on the clasp
(Fig.8). Repeat this entire step to connect
the other half of the clasp to the last bezel
and the final swag.

Round1: Add 1bead stop to 3' of .014 beading wire, leaving a 3" tail. String {2A and 1B}
three times. String 1A; pass through the first
A added to form a tight circle (Fig.1).
Round2: String 1B and 1A, skip 1A and 1B,
and pass through the next A (Fig.2); repeat
(Fig.3, blue thread). String 1B and 1A; skip
1A/1B/1A and pass through the next A.
String 1B and 1A; skip 1A and 1B and pass
through the next A (Fig.3, red thread).
Round3: String 1B and 1A, skip 1B of the previous round, and pass through the next A;
repeat twice (Fig.4).
Rounds412: Repeat Round3 until there are
12A and 12B that spiral up the side of the
beaded bead. Note: Because the work spirals, no step-up is required. Secure the wire
by weaving it through several beads and
knotting it around previous wires between
beads; repeat. For added security, use a
droplet of glue on each knot. Remove the
bead stop; end the tail wire the same way
as with the working wire. Set the beaded
bead aside.
Repeat this entire step twice for a total of
3beaded beads.

artists tips
> Alter the look by using size 8 cylinder
beads instead of crimp tubes. Because they
are wider than crimp tubes, the discs will be
spaced farther apart. Note: If you use something other than 2.53mm tubes for E, you
may need to alter the number of beads used
in each round to achieve a tight-fitting bezel.
> Use smaller discs that sit side by side
instead of the overlapping 6mm discs, but
keep in mind the thread that connects the E
beads/tubes may show.

1) BEZEL. Use ladder and netting stitches to


form the bezel:
Round 1: Use 6' of doubled thread to ladderstitch a strip 46E long. Stitch the first and
last E together to form a ring. Exit from the
bottom of the ring (Fig.1).
Round 2: String 1C, 3D, and 1C; pass through
the next E. String 1F and 1C; pass back
through the F and the next E to form a
fringe. Repeat from the beginning of the
round twenty-two times. Pass through the
first 1C/2D added in this round (Fig.2,
purple thread).
Round 3: String 2D and pass through the
middle D of the next Round 2 net; repeat
twenty-two times. Pull the thread tightly to
make the beadwork cup. Repeat the thread
path to reinforce. Weave through beads to
exit from 1C above 1F of Round 2 (Fig.2,
green thread).

Round 4: String 3B, 1A, and 3B and pass

through the next C above 1F of Round 2;


repeat twenty-two times. Pass through the
first 3B/1A (Fig.2, blue thread).
Round 5: Check to make sure the F are layered, one on top of the next. Place the cabochon in the beadwork faceup so the back
touches Round 3. Working with tight tension, string 2A and pass through the next A
of Round 4; repeat twenty-two times
(Fig.2, red thread). Repeat the thread
path to reinforce. Weave through beads to
exit from 1E of Round 1 at the top point of
the bezel.
2) BAIL. Connect the bail to 1E (Fig.3). String

the E just used; pass through the last E exited


at the top of the bail, the E just added, the next
E of Round 1 at the top of the bail, and the E
just added to center the bail (Fig.4). Repeat
the thread path several times to reinforce.

Experiment with different materials


to customize this framed component
to your liking. Here are two
variations Beadwork Editor Melinda
Barta stumbled upon:
> Purple/pink round bezel. Using
size 10 cylinder beads for Round 1
created the need for more beads in
this round and also more nets/
sequins in Round 2. The additional
nets created a raised texture along
the top; dont expect these additional
nets to sit perfectly flat as in Tatianas
sample. Textured 6mm plastic
sequins were used in place of the
metal discs.
> Bronze/green oval bezel. As with
the purple/pink round bezel, using
size 10 cylinder beads for Round 1
resulted in additional nets that sit
somewhat raised above the surface of
the cabochon. Each fringe was
created with one 4mm plastic sequin
and one 4mm O bead, and because
they are smaller than Tatianas 6mm
discs, these fringes sit side by side
instead of overlapping.

techniques
PASS THROUGH
VS PASS BACK THROUGH
Pass through means to move the needle in
the same direction that the beads have
been strung. Pass back through means to
move the needle in the opposite direction.

FINISHING AND STARTING


NEW THREADS
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.

WIREWORKING
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.

BRICK STITCH
Stitch a foundation row in one- or twoneedle ladder stitch. String 2beads and
pass under the closest exposed loop of the
foundation row and back through the second bead. String 1bead and pass under the
next exposed loop and back through the
bead just strung; repeat.

STOP BEAD
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.

STRINGING
Stringing is a technique that uses beading
wire, needle and thread, or other material
to gather beads into a strand.

CRIMPING
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.

94

LADDER STITCH
For one-needle ladder stitch, string
2beads and pass through them again.
Manipulate the beads so their sides touch.
String 1bead. Pass through the last stitched
bead and the one just strung. Repeat, adding 1bead at a time and working in a
figure-eight pattern.

HERRINGBONE STITCH
Form a foundation row of one- or twoneedle 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.

FRINGE
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.

NETTING
String a base row of 13beads. String
5beads and pass back through the fifth
bead from the end of the base row. String
another 5beads, skip 3beads of the base
row, and pass back through the next;
repeat to the end of the row. To turn, pass
back through the last 3beads (one leg of
the last net). String 5beads, pass back
through the center bead of the next net,
and continue.

To decrease within a row, string 1bead


and skip a loop of thread on the previous
row, passing under the second loop and
back through the bead.

To increase within a row, work 2stitches in


the same loop on the previous row.

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.

For tubular netting, string {1A and 1B} six


times; pass through them again to form the
foundation round. *String 1A, 1B, and 1A;
skip 1B and pass through the following 1B
in the previous round to form a net.
Repeat from * twice, then step up for the
next round by passing through the first
2beads of this round. **String 1A, 1B, and
1A; pass through the middle bead of the
nearest net in the previous round. Repeat
from ** twice, then step up as before. Work
each round the same way.

DAISY CHAIN
String a small number of
beads and pass back
through the first bead
strung to form a circle.
String 1bead and pass
through the bead opposite the first bead of the
circle, forming the
daisy.

BEADWORKMAGAZINE.COM

94-95 Techniques aug14.indd 94

5/21/14 4:23 PM

For circular netting, string {1A and 1B} six


times; pass through them again to form a
circle for the foundation round and pass
through the next 1B. *String 1A, 1B, and 1A;
skip 3beads and pass through the following bead in the previous round to form a
net. Repeat from * twice, then step up for
the next round by passing through the first
2beads of the first net. String 2A, 1B, and
2A; pass through the middle bead of the
nearest net in the previous round. Repeat
twice, then step up for the next round by
passing through the first 3beads of this
round. Work each round the same way,
increasing the number of A beads as necessary to keep the work flat, and stepping
up by passing through the first half of the
first net.

PEYOTE STITCH
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 2beads
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 previous
row. For a smooth increase, use very narrow
beads for both the two-drop and the onedrop between.

To make a midproject peyote-stitch


decrease, simply pass the thread through
2beads 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 3beads


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 previous round; repeat
around, then step up at the end of the
round. Continue in this manner, alternating
the two previous 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 2rounds; pass through the first 2beads
strung. To work Round3, 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 1bead 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.

SQUARE STITCH
String a row of beads. For the second row,
string 2 beads; pass through the second-tolast bead of the first row and through the
second bead just strung. Continue by
stringing 1 bead, passing through the thirdto-last bead of the first row, and through
the bead just strung. Repeat this looping
technique to the end of the row.

For circular square stitch, string the first


round of beads and pass through them
again to form a circle. Start a new round by
stringing 2 beads; pass through the last
bead of the first round and through the
2beads just strung. Repeat around, passing
through the next bead of the previous
round for each 2new beads strung. At the
end of the round, pass through the whole
round again to tighten the beads. Start a
new round by stringing 2beads; pass
through the last bead of the previous round
and through the 2beads just strung. String
1bead and pass through the next bead of
the previous round and the bead just
strung. Repeat around, stitching 1or
2beads to each bead of the previous round,
adjusting the count as necessary to keep
the work flat.

PICOT
A picot is a decorative net, most often
made with 3 beads, used to embellish a
beadwork surface.

RIGHT-ANGLE WEAVE
For one-needle right-angle weave, string
4beads and pass through the first 3beads
again to form the first unit. For the rest of
the row, string 3beads and pass through
the last bead exited in the previous unit
and the first 2just 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 3beads
and pass through the last bead exited and
the first bead just strung. *String 2beads,
pass back through the next top bead of the
previous row, the last bead exited in the
previous unit, and the 2beads just strung.
Pass through the next top bead of the previous row, string 2beads, 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.

MIKEY KAY

Tatiana Pags has an eye for opportunity and a heart for helping.
A passion for objet trouv ( found object) inspired her career and her
recycled jewelry collections. Tatiana started the ORIGOMU Project, in
which plastic six-pack rings are transformed into wearable art, and she
teaches workshops to inspire ex-convicts and vulnerable women. Her
jewelry is not only one of a kindit is positively affecting the world.

Q: Explain your other eco-friendly jewelry


collections.
A: LAIONESPRESSO is a collection made from
recycled Nespresso coffee pods. The aluminum
material they are made from is perfect for
bending and molding into various shapes, and
the colors are so vibrant! THE ILLITERATE PAPER
COLLECTION makes use of paper from wrapping, packing, and carrying. These collections
inspire innate creativity. Each piece becomes a
constant reminder to reduce unnecessary
waste. What one person considers ugly or
trash, I consider an opportunity for creativity,
art, and beauty.

Q: What do you find beneficial about using


recycled materials?
A: Tying together environmental stewardship
with jewelry design is something I find interesting. I can use my passions for design and environmental conservation to create something
unique, beautiful, and powerful. ORIGOMU is
more than jewelry design, and it is more than
environmental action. It is a way to create
beauty out of trash and to inspire others to do
the same. On a deeper level, it inspires people
to look within themselves and to reinvent
themselves. It provides hope for a positive
future. It is a second chance.

Q: What inspired ORIGOMU?


A: I found plastic six-pack rings on my street,
and it made me think of the damage trash
does to wildlife and the environment. I specifically thought of how birds necks get caught in
the rings, killing millions each year! I started the
ORIGOMU necklaces collection to inspire people to reuse a material many think of as trash
and turn it into something beautiful. The name
ORIGOMU was inspired by the Japanese word
for folding rubber, a play on the process by
which these necklaces are created. These necklaces symbolize how the rings get caught
around the birds necks, reiterating the point of
the damage that can be prevented by taking
action and recycling.

Q: Tell me about the evolution of your


design style.
A: My design style for the past 14 years has
always been the same. My pieces are big
because I am tallrunway pieces for sure.
They are very contemporary and monochromatic, and they have a lot of character since
you need a statement to make people think
about beauty and the planet. My pieces make
people stop and look. They are definitely conversation starters!
