The first warm days of spring have a remarkable and uplifting
effect on me. Im immediately ready to forget the winters
snowstorms and frigid weather and head outside to see
if anything is sprouting in my backyard. To think that my
recently ice-bound garden will soon show signs of life is not just comforting,
its like getting natures version of CPR.
Fortunately, weve got an abundance of floral projects blooming throughout
this spring issue. Our lovely cover necklace by Lynda Taylor offers a brilliant
peyote-stitched flower on a herringbone band. From our Fab Four Designers of
the Year, weve got Cynthia Rutledges embellished floral bracelet, Sherry Serafinis
dramatic flower cuff, Carol Wilcox Wellss graceful fern necklace, and Kelly Wieses
cascading necklace of leaves and crystal buds. For those of you who sell your jewelry
or have been considering it, you wont want to miss Michelle Machs conversation
with three bead artists who run successful businessestheir secrets could be the key
to your success. And, as always, weve filled this issue with great tips, techniques,
ideas, and inspiration.
Perhaps youve noticed the new photo and are wondering whos writing this
editorial. With this issue of Beadwork, I take over the editors role from Melinda
Barta, who will remain on our staff as senior editor. As a new mom, Melinda will
be devoting more of her time to family, but were glad to have her back with us on
a lighter schedule. I have a great sense of appreciation for everything that Melinda
has brought to Beadwork over the past few years, and our number-one assignment
remains the same: to keep you, our reader, happy by publishing the most beautiful,
the most interesting, and the most fun beading projects youll find anywhere.

DESIGNERS OF THE YEAR
CYNTHIA RUTLEDGE. When I am in design
mode, my inspiration comes from multiple directions.
I primarily work using historical perspective as the
guiding light, letting art and history guide me through
the creative process. Two of my favorite artists are
Sandro Botticelli and John Waterhouse. While I am
designing a new piece, I look to the early Renaissance
style of Botticelli to inspire me with his masterful
composition and incredible control in the use of color.
I look to John Waterhouse paintings for the inspiration
to create jewelry that would fit the Pre-Raphaelite style
of the women in his work. Would Ophelia or the
Lady of Shalott have worn one of my pieces?
SHERRY SERAFINI. The shape and form in
Da Vincis earlier sketches make me want to mimic
them in my beadwork. I also like the paintings
he created. The deep colors he uses can send
me straight to my studio.
CAROL WILCOX WELLS. It is hard to choose
one observation that inspires my work, as there are
so many. Recently, I was listening to stories of feudal
Japan, and the piece I was working on took on that
flavor. It is a subtle conversion of thoughts, color, and
style. For the future, I have just purchased a new book,
Van Gogh in Auvers: His Last Days by Wouter van der
Veen and Peter Knapp. The colors alone make my
creative juices flow!
KELLY WIESE. I am often inspired by the
Art Nouveau period. I love the floral motifs and
flowing lines, particularly Alphonse Muchas work.
I framed several prints of his from an old calendar
and have them hanging in my studio.
FEATURED DESIGNERS
DORIS COGHILL. Many times a three-dimensional object
inspires me. For example, I might re-create a piece of vintage
jewelry using seed beads or cover a piece of glass or a stuffed
animal with seed beads and include it in a larger bead sculpture.
JENNIFER GALLAGHER. Though at times the colors of my
beadwork have been influenced by paintings, I am often inspired
by the colors Mother Nature produces. As a child, I liked to play
with kaleidoscopes. Now, as an adult, I often use them to inspire a
color palette and patterns. My father introduced me to the
subject of fractals, noting that my beadwork often produced
fractal patterns. Because I prefer sculptural beading, I often use
the fractal concept for inspiration.
AMY HAFTKOWYCZ. Its difficult for me to pinpoint any
specific art form that inspires my beadwork because I find that
my ideas can spark from just about anything around me, depend-
ing on my mood that day. Sometimes a spectacular piece of
blown glass will draw me in; other days it may be the color depth
of a perfectly glazed piece of pottery. The beautiful thing about
beadwork is that it can grow from just about anything.
RIANA OLCKERS. The South African painter Catharina and
her use of abstract form and vibrant colors inspires me. I own one
of her artworks, and the purple lamb in this particular painting is
just adorable. When I listen to the sounds of Vivaldi, my creative
juices just start flowing. Abstract and classic seem to do it for me!
KRISTAL WICK. A great deal of my designs are inspired
by nature. An image embedded in my mind that I constantly
re-create using Swarovski crystal ABs occurred in early winter.
I was driving as the sun rose. A crisp, white, snow-covered field
shimmered and glistened like an ocean of crystals. I had to stop
the car while my eyes just drank in its sheer, simple beauty.
What a gift!
Q: Besides jewelry, what other kinds
of art inspire your beadwork?

DID YOU KNOW?
Jewelry-supply manufacturer Rio Grande
uses solar power to operate everything
from office lights to wax injectors and
tumblers. The more than 5,000 solar
panels installed above the parking lot
at their New Mexico facility generate
enough power for 300 homes, making it
the states largest commercial solar site.
When I saw the Sparkly Wheel design
in your magazine, I knew I had found the
perfect foundation for the antique key
necklace I had been wanting to make.
What a great project to be inspired by!
I love the outcome.

Bead Journal Project
The annual Bead Journal Project organized by Robin
Atkins, coauthor of Beaded Embellishments (Interweave, 2002),
encourages participants to bead a journal page each month
for a year. Several group blogs allow the more than 300
beaders involved in the projects fourth year to share advice
and encouragement. While most originally sign up to develop
their artistic or technical skills in bead embroidery, many also
gain insight on deeply personal issues. To view the journal
pages to date, visit www.beadjournalproject.com.
I was fascinated with the Sparkly
Wheels. I used them as focal beads
with size 11 seed beads and 4mm
druks, stringing them together using
a bead-crochet rope made with size
8 seed beads. I named the piece
Round the Color Wheel. Thanks for
all the ideas! Im glad to see youre
including more seed-beading projects
and techniques.
PAMELA KEARNS/TORONTO,
ONTARIO, CANADA
I had been wanting to do something
with beaded rings that was a little faster
than peyote stitch. When I saw the
Sparkly Wheels, I knew it was what I
had been looking for. I like turquoise
and purple and combined the rings with
some polymer clay charms and beads
Id made in those colors.
VALARIE GARBER/OKAHANDJA, NAMIBIA
In our June/July 2010 issue, the Sparkly Wheels component in our Custom Cool department (page 26) caused
a sensation! Here are just a few creative ways to use this fun netted component.
I just had to write you about
those gorgeous wheels! I made
one with purple Swarovski bicones
and gold Delicas for my daughter-
in-law. Im just finishing two more
wheels, one using olivine bicones
and the other using black diamond
bicones to match an outfit Im
wearing to a wedding in August.
Your magazine is a great
inspiration to me.

IMMEDIATELY ATTRACTED
TO THE MIX of metals, I decided to
push the metal theme further by throwing
in brass. I loved the colors and textures in
the cords, but finishing them with finesse
was tricky. The cord ends were large
enough to accommodate only a couple of
strands. Since a needle is my beading tool
of choice, it was easy to secure all the cords
and the chain by sewing them together.
This enabled me to attach the cord ends
to only the suede cords. The large-hole
gold beads concealed the transition nicely.

I WANTED TO CREATE a breath of fresh springtime
air, so I mixed the greens and blues with a splash of lilac.
The leaves add a nice touch of movement. I love mixing
metals, so I can wear my pieces with anything in my closet.
I added the reflection of dew drops in the early morning with
the Swarovski crystal ABs in the trim of my peyote-stitched,
textured charm. Colored jump rings add a tiny dab of green.
My necklace, Natures Song, is finely finished with the luscious
grassy greens and tranquil blues of the fairy ribbons.

Take a bow, Nancy!
After seeing some of Nancy Dales inspiring beadwork,
our editors invited her to participate in this issues Challenge.
We enjoyed her creativity in combining the kits materials with
bead embroidery and beadweaving. See below for details
on how you, too, can submit a picture of your work and
be considered to win a Challenge kit.

I HAD A HARD TIME SELECTING what to use from
the kit, but eventually chose the green ribbons and the golden
bits. I covered the ribbons (plus a purple and green fiber of
my own) with a three-drop peyote rope, leaving knots in the
sections to show off both the fibers and the gold filigree beads.
Then I picked out a matching cabochon from my stash and
embroidered around it to make a pendant. I used the bee
charm and the golden leaves in the fringe. I named the
finished piece Grape Leaves. It was a wonderful
opportunity to stretch creatively!

THIS ISSUES GENEROUS KIT almost feels like four
kits gathered into one. Many of the elements looked great in
small groups, but I wasnt able to incorporate all the different
styles. Knowing this design was for our April/May issue, I
conjured up feelings of spring by selecting the leaf charms and
bright green ribbon and cord. To blend the elegant feel of the
pearls with the earthy feel of the leather cord, I embellished the
straps with tubular peyote-stitched sliders. What did I enjoy
most? Discovering that the prongs on the hook-and-loop
clasps caps provide a secure fit when tightened around tubular
peyote-stitched caps.

1) BASE. Prepare the foundation:
Pattern: Use the permanent marker to
draw the flower shape (see template,
page 22) on the beading foundation.
Mark the petals centerlines so they
dont quite extend to the end of the
petals. Center the rivoli on the flower
pattern and trace around it. Cut a hole
2 to 3mm inside the traced line of the
rivoli to create a nest so it can lie flat
on the foundation. Use a toothpick to
apply a layer of adhesive around the
back edges of the rivoli and press it
into the nest. Let dry for at least 20
minutes.
2) RIVOLI. Use backstitch and peyote
stitch to bezel the rivoli:
Rounds 1 and 2: Tie a strong knot at the
end of 3' of braided beading thread
and place a needle at the other end.
Pass through the foundation from
back to front near the rivoli. String
4F, slide them to the backing, and lay
them alongside the rivoli. Pass down
through the backing next to the last
bead added. Pass up through the back-
ing between the second and third
beads just added, then pass through
the third and fourth beads (Fig. 1).
String 2F, lay them alongside the cab-
ochon, pass down through the back-
ing next to the last bead strung, and
up through the beads just added
(Fig. 2); repeat, working backstitch
around the rivoli. Note: This round
will create the first two rounds of the
bezel. Make sure the round contains
an even number of beads.

3) CENTERLINES. String 1H and 1A;
pass back through the 1H just strung,
pass down and up through the founda-
tion, one beads width away on the cen-
terline. Repeat three or four times.
Following the centerline, backstitch
with 4G, then continue backstitching
with B until you reach the end of
the line. Repeat on the centerline of
each petal.
4) FILL. Bead-embroider and backstitch
the flower petals:
3mm rounds: Backstitch the Pacific opal
3mm rounds, three at a time, around
the base of the rivoli between the cen-
terlines of the petals.
4mm pearls: Pass up through the founda-
tion at the corner of a centerline and
3mm round. String 1 purple 4mm
pearl and pass down through the
Round 3: Work tubular peyote stitch off
the backstitched beads, using 1F in
each stitch. Step up for the next and
following rounds by passing through
the first bead of the current round
(Fig. 3).
Round 4: Work tubular peyote stitch with
1F in each stitch.
Round 5: Work tubular peyote stitch with
1A in each stitch. Weave through the
beads to exit down through the foun-
dation; then weave up to exit at the
base of one petals centerline.

foundation near the last place exited;
repeat the thread path to reinforce.
Continue to add 4mm pearls to
the corners of each centerline and
3mm round.
Outline: Using C, backstitch an outline
around the 3mm rounds and
4mm pearls.
3mm pearls: Randomly stitch the 3mm
white pearls around the design,
passing through the beads twice
to reinforce.
Main petals: Use D to backstitch horizon-
tal lines across the petals, covering the
rest of the foundation. Secure the
thread on the back of the foundation
and trim.
5) EMBELLISH. Use 3' of doubled
braided beading thread with a large knot
on the end to pass up from the back of
the foundation near the rivoli. Weave
through beads to exit from Round 3 of
the bezel. String 1A, 1 topaz 3mm bi-
cone, and 1A; pass back through the bi-
cone, string 1A, and pass through the
next 2F in Round 3; repeat around to
add 1 fringe between every other cylinder
bead of Round 3. Secure the thread on
the back side of the foundation and trim.

Create a smaller flower and make earrings by attaching a post

through the first bead added in this
step. Secure the thread and trim.
8) FINISHING. Apply a dab of glue to
the back of the beaded flower and place
it on top of the cuff in a pleasing man-
ner. Place a rubber band around the
entire cuff to keep the flower in position
while it dries. Tie a knot on the end of
2' of doubled olive thread and clip the
end. Sew through the cuff, hiding the
knot under the beadwork. Take small
random stitches where the flower meets
the edge of the cuff to secure it while
maintaining a 3-D look. Secure the
thread and trim.

1 white 3mm pearl; pass down
6) FLOWER ASSEMBLY. Combine the
flower components:
Beading foundation: Carefully trim the
foundation flush against the bead-
work; avoid cutting any stitches.
Gluing: Use a toothpick to spread a thin,
even layer of glue on the back of the
beadwork; press the beadwork onto
the back of a 3 3" piece of Ultra-
suede, making sure the glue doesnt
seep out from the edges. Let dry at
least 20 minutes. Trim the Ultrasuede
flush against the beadwork.
Edging: Tie a knot at the end of 3' of olive
thread and place a needle at the other
end. Pass through the edge of the
Ultrasuede from back to front. String
2G; stitch through the edge of the
Ultrasuede from front to back and
through the foundation from back to
front one beads width from the last
stitch. Pass back up through the sec-
ond bead just added and pull tight to
form the first brick stitch. *String 1G;
stitch through the Ultrasuede from
front to back and through the founda-
tion from back to front one beads
width from the last stitch; pass back up
through the bead just added (Fig. 4).
Repeat from * to completely close the
flowers edge. For the last stitch, add
1G, pass down through the first bead
added in this step, and up through the
following bead.
Fringes: Weave through edging beads to
exit between two petals. String 1 to
6E, 1 Pacific opal 3mm round, and
1A; pass back through the 3mm
round, the E, and the edge bead just
exited. Add 1 to 3 fringes between
each petal. Secure the thread and
trim. Set the flower aside.
7) CUFF ASSEMBLY. Glue Ultrasuede
to the cuff and edge it with beads and
pearls:
Ultrasuede: Cut two 1 7" pieces of
Ultrasuede. Use a toothpick to apply
tacky glue to the inside of the metal
cuff blank within
1
/8" of the edge.
Smooth one piece of Ultrasuede
inside the cuff. Let dry 20 minutes.

5) TUBE LINKS. Work tubular herring-
bone stitch and square stitch to form a
long link:
Round 1: Using 8' of chartreuse thread
and leaving a 2' tail, ladder-stitch a
strip, alternating 2G and 2H four
times for a total of 8 beads. Ladder-
stitch the final H to the first G to
form a ring. Exit from the first G.
Rounds 2 and 3: String 2G, pass down
through the next bead in the previous
round, and up through the following
one, then string 2H, pass down
through the next bead in the previous
round, and up through the following
one; repeat around to tubular-
herringbone-stitch a total of 8 beads.
Step up for the next and subsequent
rounds by passing up through the first
bead added in this round. Repeat once.
Round 4: Work tubular herringbone
stitch with 2N in each stitch, taking
care to let the wide part of each drop
sit on the outside of the tube (Fig. 13).
Rounds 523: Repeat Round 2
nineteen times.
2) MEDIUM LEAFLETS. Working off
the final right-angle-weave unit, repeat
Stitches 419 and the embellishment
from Step 1 twice, forming the connec-
tor units with 1H, 1G, and 1H. Form a
third leaflet, this time forming the final
right-angle units with 1I, 1G, and 1I.
3) SMALL LEAFLETS. Working off the
final right-angle-weave unit, repeat
Stitches 719 and the embellishment
from Step 1 twice, forming the connec-
tor units using 1I, 1G, and 1H for each
unit. Form a third leaflet off the top C
by repeating Stitches 1319 (Fig. 11).
Weave through beads to exit through
the top C of the unit where the third
leaflet began.
4) SPINE. String 1G and pass through
the next vertical G at the center of the
frond; repeat (Fig. 12) fourteen times to
add a total of 15G. Secure the working
thread and trim; dont trim the tail
thread. Set the frond aside.
Repeat Steps 14 five times to form a
total of 6 fronds.

7) CLASP RINGS. Square-stitch rings,
then embellish them to form the rings
for the toggle clasp:
Small clasp ring: Repeat the ring link, this
time connecting it to the loop at one
end of the chain and exiting on the
outside of the ring. String 1A, 1N, and
1A and pass through the M next to the
last one exited, the next 2M in the
same column, and through the near-
est M in the second column (Fig. 17).
Repeat the embellishment around
the entire ring to add a total of
11 picot fringes.
Medium clasp ring: Repeat the small clasp
ring, this time starting with a strip
32 rows long, connecting to the loop
at the other end of the chain, and
adding 16 picot fringes.
Large clasp ring: Repeat the small clasp
ring, this time starting with a strip
42 rows long, connecting to the same
loop as the medium clasp ring, and
adding 21 picot fringes. Note: Placing
this ring will be tight, but the snug-
ness lets the rings sit side by side.
Use the tail thread to repeat the end cap
and loop at the other end of the tube.
Set aside.
Repeat entire step seven times to form a
total of 8 tube links.

thread and leaving an 8" tail, square-
stitch a strip 2M wide and 22 rows long.
Slide the strip through the end loops of
2 tube links and bend the strip so its
ends touch; square-stitch the first and
last rows together to form a ring and
connect the tubes (Fig. 16). Weave the
working and tail threads through the
columns to reinforce the beadwork; se-
cure the thread and trim. Repeat six
times to connect all the tube links into a
long chain.

Round 24: Repeat Round 4.
Rounds 2527: Repeat Round 2 three
times. Exit out from the first G of a
2G set.
End cap: Square-stitch a strip off the last
2G exited thats 2G wide and 4 rows
long. Fold the strip over the tubes
opening and square-stitch the final
2G to the 2G on the other side of the
tube (Fig. 14). Weave up through beads
in Round 27 to exit up through an H.
End loop: Square-stitch a strip off the last
2H exited that is 2H wide and 16 rows
long. Fold the strip over the tubes
opening and square-stitch the final
2H to the 2H on the other side of the
tube (Fig. 15). Weave through this strip
several times to reinforce. Secure the
working thread and trim.

8) FERN TOGGLE. Right-angle-weave a
rope and stitch the fronds to it to form
the clasps toggle:
Rope: Using 4' of chartreuse thread and
leaving a 12" tail, stitch a tubular
right-angle-weave rope 4" long
using G.
End frond: Use the tail thread of one
frond to string 1G; pass through a top
G at one end of the rope, string 1G,
and pass through the top G on the
other side of the rope at the same end.
Repeat the thread path of the unit,
this time incorporating the last G
exited on the frond. Secure the thread
and trim.
Middle fronds: Use the tail thread of
another frond to ladder-stitch the
fronds end G to a vertical G about
1" up the rope, one stitch over. Repeat
the thread path several times to rein-
force. Secure the thread and trim.
Repeat to place a third frond another
1" up the rope. Slide the rope through
the small clasp ring, then add a fourth
frond another 1" up the rope.
Repeat the end frond connection to
add the fifth frond to the other end of
the rope.
Curled frond: Place the sixth frond on the
tube link that sits above the small
clasp ring, between the rounds of N.
Securely stitch the wide end of the
fronds spine to the tube link right
below the upper round of N. Securely
stitch the fronds spine between the
sixth leaflets to the tube, right above
the lower round of N, attaching the
frond so it slightly curves around
the link.
To wear, pass 2 fronds from the loose
end of the rope through the medium
and large clasp rings, forming a
toggle clasp.

1) BASE. Work lattice weave to form
the bracelets base:
Row 1, Unit 1: Use 6' of waxed thread to
string 8L; tie the beads into a circle,
leaving a 10" tail. Adjust the beads to
form a small square. Pass through
the beads again to tighten.
Row 1, Unit 2: String 7L; pass through
the last L exited and the first 4L
just added.
Row 1, Units 37: Repeat Unit 2 five
times, tightening the units into
squares as you go. Step up for the
next row by weaving through beads
to exit the sixth L (the top bead) of
the final unit (Fig. 1).
Row 2, Unit 1: String 7L; pass through
the last L exited and the first 2L just
added (Fig. 2green thread).

Row 2, Unit 2: String 5L; pass through
the top bead of the next unit in the
previous row. String 1L and pass
up through the side bead of the
previous unit. Weave through the
first 4L added in this unit (Fig. 2
blue thread).
Row 2, Unit 3: String 1L; pass through
the top bead of the next unit in the
previous row. String 5L and pass
down through the side bead of
Unit 2 in this row. Weave through
beads to exit from the third L
added in this unit (Fig. 2red thread).
Row 2, Units 47: Repeat Units 2 and 3
twice. Step up for the next row by
weaving through beads to exit from
the fourth L (the top bead) of the
final unit.

Lattice weave looks best if the beads
are shaped into the little squares as
you go. Ive found that it helps to
shape the lattice weave stitches if I
move my thread in sets of two beads
at a time.
When forming beaded closures, use
a separate thread so if the connec-
tion breaks, you always know that
that thread was only for the closure,
making the repair stress-free.
3) LOOP. Add the clasp loop to the base:
Base loop: Start a new 16" thread that
exits up through the inner side bead
of the second unit in the third-to-last
row at the other end of the base (Fig. 5
black bead). Arrange the thread so it
exits on the underside of the base (the
button is on top). String 41L or an
odd number of beads that fit snugly
around the button. Note: A 2
3
8" strand
works well for a 22mm button. Pass
down through the inner side bead
of the sixth unit from the left in the
same row (Fig. 5green bead). Weave
through beads to exit up through
the inner side bead of the fifth unit
from the left in the same row (Fig. 5
blue bead). String 1L, skip the last L
Fig. 3: Working Base Row 31
Rows 330: Repeat Row 2 twenty-eight
times or until the base is long enough
so that when its wrapped around
the wrist, theres a " gap between
the ends.
Row 31: Weave through beads to exit the
top bead of the previous rows sixth
unit. Work lattice weave for five units
(Fig. 3). Secure the thread and trim.
Second decrease row: Turn the base so
Row 1 points up. Place a needle on the
tail thread. Weave through beads to
exit the top L of Row 1, Unit 2. Work
lattice weave for five units. Secure the
tail thread and trim.
2) BUTTON. Start a new 16" thread that
exits down through the inner side bead
of the third unit in the second-to-last
row at one end of the bracelet (Fig. 4black
bead). String 9L and the button; pass
down through the inner side bead of
the third unit from the left in the
fourth-to-last row on the same end of
the bracelet (Fig. 4green bead). Weave
through beads to exit up through the
inner side bead of the fourth unit from
the right in the same row (Fig. 4blue
bead). String 1L, skip the last L strung,
and pass back through the next 7L.
String 1L; pass up through the side bead
of the fourth unit in the second-to-last
row (Fig. 4red bead). Repeat the thread
path several times to reinforce; secure
the thread and trim.
Fig. 4: Adding the button
strung, and pass back through all but
the first bead strung. String 1L and
pass down through the inner side
bead of the third unit from the left
in the same row (Fig. 5red bead). Pull
the loop tight and test the fit around
the button; make adjustments
as necessary.
Embellishment: Count 5L down from the
center L at the top of the base loop.
Weave through beads to exit through
that bead, toward the center. String
3A, skip the next L on the loop, and
pass through the following one; repeat
four times to add a total of 15A (Fig. 6).
Repeat the thread path to reinforce.
Secure the thread and trim. Set the
bracelet base aside.

ARTI ST S TI P
To begin a small tube of peyote stitch, get the circle
of beads ready, place the circle on an armature (such
as the end of a pencil, pen, or dowel), holding the tail
thread and the armature together as one. As you
stitch the next round, push all new beads either up
or down and tighten the work as you go.
Repeat, this time forming a fringe
and passing into the nearest Round 7
bead then forming a fringe and pass-
ing into the nearest Round 8 bead to
add 6 fringes (Fig. 8red thread). Weave
through beads to exit from Cone
Round 6.
Petal Round 1: String 1B and pass through
the next B in Cone Round 6; repeat
five times to add a total of 6B. Step up
through the first B added in this
round. Note: The beads will seem too
small; dont worry, this will be taken
care of as the petals are stitched.
Petal Round 2: String 1B, 9E, and 1B; pass
back through the last B exited in Petal
Round 1 (Fig. 9green thread). String
2M; pass through the fifth E just
added, back through the 2M just
added, through the last B exited from
Petal Round 1, and the first 5 beads
added in this round (Fig. 9blue thread).
String 3F, skip the nearest E, and pass
through the following E. Weave
through beads to exit from the last B
exited in Petal Round 1. Tighten the
petal. String 1B and pass through
the next B in Petal Round 1 (Fig. 9
red thread).
4) LARGE FLOWER. Work tubular
peyote stitch and embellishing tech-
niques to form a flower:
Cone Rounds 1 and 2: Use 6' of waxed
thread to string 12B, leaving a 6" tail.
Tie a knot to form a tight circle and
pass through the first B strung.
Cone Rounds 36: Work tubular peyote
stitch with 1B in each stitch for a total
of 6B in each of 4 rounds. Step up for
each new round by passing through
the first B added in the current
round. Secure and trim the tail
thread only.
Cone Round 7: Work one tubular peyote
stitch with 1B, then pass through the
next B from Cone Rounds 5 and 6 to
form a decrease; repeat twice to add a
total of 3B (Fig. 7blue thread).
Cone Round 8: Work tubular peyote stitch
with 1B in each stitch to add a total
of 3B. Pass through the 3B just added
to pull the beadwork closed (Fig. 7
red thread).
Stamens: String 3C and 1D, skip the last
bead strung, and pass back through
the 3C and through the next B in
Cone Round 8; repeat twice to add a
total of 3 fringes (Fig. 8blue thread).

five times to add a total of 6N. Step up
through the first N added in this
round.
Leaf Round 2: String 7B, 1N, and 3B; pass
back through the N to form a picot.

of your wrist. Use a needle to mark the
center and set the bracelet on the work
surface. Position the vine onto the
surface of the band in a pleasing man-
ner and position the large flowers on
top of the vine, ensuring that one is at
the center of the base. Keep a mental
note of the components positions.
Large flowers: Use the thread attached to
the large flower at the center of the
base to stitch the flower to the base so
the stitches also secure the vine
underneath; dont trim the thread.
Repeat with the other 2 flowers.
Vine: Use the remaining thread from the
large flowers to securly stitch down
nearby stems, flowers, and buds. The
goal is to anchor enough of the vine to
make a solid connection to the base.
When securing the vine toward the
ends of the base, bend the band a bit
while anchoring so that when the
bracelet is worn, the embellishments
can move easily. Once the vine
is solidly placed, secure the threads
and trim.

subsequent petals. Add just 3 stamens
as in Step 4, using the picot beads of
the stem as the base.
Bud: Repeat the small flower, forming
3 petals. Weave through beads to exit
through the top center bead of one
petal. Pass through the top center
beads of all 3 petals to draw them
closed (Fig. 12).
Leaves: Repeat Leaf Round 2 to form
3 leaves. For a more organic look, try
changing the number of B on each
side of the leaf to make them shorter
or longer. Use different numbers of
beads on each side of the leaf to get
them to bend. Change the number of
beads in the spine of each leaf or omit
them for a different look. Make some
clusters consisting of three leaves and
some with only two leaves.
Continue working short lengths of stem
fringe, varying the lengths and adding
embellishments as you go until the en-
tire initial strand of stem beads is em-
bellished. Note: When adding a new
thread or finishing an old one, secure
the threads in an embellishment, not in
the main vine.
6) ASSEMBLY. Attach the vine and
large flowers to the bracelet base:
Positioning: Try on the bracelet band with
the button centered on the underside
last Leaf Round 1 bead exited to form
a loop (Fig. 10blue thread). String 2N
and 1B; pass through the first N added
in this round, the 3B picot, back
through the nearest N, 2B, and last
2N added, and the last Leaf Round 1
bead exited. Weave through beads to
exit the next N from Leaf Round 1
(Fig. 10red thread).
Repeat Leaf Round 2 to form a total
of 6 leaves. Weave through beads to exit
from Cone Round 1. Set the large
flower aside.
Repeat the entire step twice, but for the
first repeat, make these color substitu-
tions: G for B, H for D, I for E, O for
M, J for F, and P for N. For the second
repeat, make these color substitutions:
A for B, E for D, H for E, Q for M, K
for F, and R for N.
5) FLOWERING VINE. Work branch
fringe and embellishments to form a
vine for the top of the bracelet:
Stem: Use 6' of waxed thread to string
enough N to match the length of your
bracelet, leaving a 12" tail. Pass back
through the fourth-to-last N added to
form a picot and continue through the
next 4N, then string 14N; pass back
through the fourth-to-last N just
added to form a picot and the remain-
ing 10N just added. Pass through the
nearest 4N initially strung and weave
through beads to exit from the first
picot bead (Fig. 11).
Use the 3N at the ends of each fringe to
add one of these embellishments:
Small flower: Repeat Petal Round 2 to
form 3 flower petals. Mix and match
colors as desired. Note: It isnt neces-
sary to add 1B to form the step-up for

Work this project with firm tension.
Throughout this project, add new double and knotted
thread by tying the new thread onto a previous
right-angle-weave unit with a larks head knot, bring-
ing the needle to the next stitch. Place the larks head
knot on the inside of the cuff.
It's easy to accidentally decrease when changing bead
sizes in right-angle weave, so count the number of
units at the end of each row to confirm the correct
number before moving on to the next row.

1) RIB 1. Work rows of right-angle weave
to form one edge of the bracelet:
Row 1, Unit 1: Cut 6' of thread, place a
needle on the thread and fold it in
half, tie the ends into an overhand
knot, and trim the thread close to the
knot. String 4C and pass between the
2 strands of thread to form a larks
head knot (Fig. 1); pull tight to form a
circle, then pass through the first 2C.
Row 1, Unit 2: String 3C; pass through the
last C exited from the previous unit
and the first 2C just added.
Row 1, Units 363: Repeat Unit 2 to form
63 units. Step up by exiting from the
top of the final unit for this and subse-
quent rows. Note: This sizing works
well for a 6" wrist; increase by
7 units for larger wrist sizes.
Rows 23: Use D to form each unit for
2 rows (Fig. 2black thread).
Row 4: Use 1D for the sides and 1C for the
top of each unit (Fig. 2green thread).
Row 5: Use 1C for the sides and 1A for the
top of each unit (Fig. 2blue thread).
Row 6: Use A to form each unit (Fig. 2
red thread).
2) RIB 2. Continuing from Rib 1, work
right-angle weave to form the center of
the bracelet:
Row 1: Use C to form each unit for the
entire row.
Row 2: Use D to form each unit for the
entire row.
Row 3, Units 14: Use D to form each unit
for a total of 4 units.
Row 3, Unit 5: Use 1D to form each side
and 1E to form the top of 1 unit.
Row 3, Units 67: Use D to form each unit
for a total of 2 units.
Row 3, Unit 8: Use 1D to form each side
and 1E to form the top of 1 unit (Fig. 3).
Row 3, Units 963: Repeat Units 68
nineteen times. End the row with
4 units of D.
Row 4: Use D to form each unit for the
entire row.
Row 5, Units 12: Use D to form each unit
for a total of 2 units.
Row 5, Units 34: Use 1D to form each side
and 1E to form the top of 2 units.
Row 5, Unit 5: Use D to form 1 unit (Fig. 4).

2 units of D.
Rows 610: Repeat Rows 15 in reverse.
3) RIB 3. Repeat Rib 1 in reverse.
4) EDGES. Finish the edges of the cuff:
Edge Row 1: Use 1C to form each side
and 1A to form the top of each unit.
Edge Rows 24: Use C to form each
unit for a total of 63 units in each
of 3 rows.
Hem: Roll the rows just stitched to the
inside of the cuff. Use a right-angle-
weave thread path to attach the top C
of Edge Row 4 to the bottom C of
Row 10 (Fig. 5). Weave through beads
to exit from the top C of the final unit
of Edge Row 3, toward the center
of the work.
Embellish: String 1B and pass through
the next top B of Edge Row 2; repeat
to stitch in the ditch across the row
(Fig. 6). Secure the thread and trim.
Start a new 3' doubled thread that exits
from the side bead of the last unit in
Row 1 of Rib 1; repeat entire step to edge
and embellish the other side of the cuff.

2) CLASP. Stitch a covering for the
magnetic clasp:
Strip: Use 3' of braided beading thread
on the size 12 needle to peyote-stitch a
strip of beadwork 6A wide by 28 rows
long, leaving a 6" tail.
Clasp tube: Apply a piece of tape to the
outside of one clasp half. Wrap the
strip around the clasp so the beads
in the first and last rows interlock like
a zipper and one straight side is flush
against the connecting edge of the
magnet. Weave back and forth
through the beads of the first and last
rows to form a seamless tube. Dont
trim the thread; set aside.
Attach: Weave through the clasp tube
beads to exit a side A at the connecting
edge of the clasp half. Pass down
through 1B on the non-safety-pinned
end of the rope and up through an
adjacent B. *Pass up through the next
A on the clasp tube and down through
the following A. Pass down through
the last B exited and up through the
following B. Repeat from * around
the tube twice until the clasp is neatly
connected. Note: Because there are 14A
at the edge of the clasp tube and 6B at
the end of the rope, it will be impor-
tant to pick up a seventh B from the
next-to-last round of crochet to keep
the connection symmetrical (Fig. 3).
Repeat the thread path to reinforce;
secure the thread and trim.
1) ROPE. Work tubular bead crochet to
form a rope:
String: Leaving the cotton thread uncut
from its skein or spool, string the
following sequence of beads 51 times:
9B, 1C, 2B, 1C.
Round 1, plain stitches: Chain-stitch
6 stitches without beads. Insert the
crochet hook into the first chained
loop. Hook the working thread and
pull a loop through the chained loop
in a slip stitch to join the chain into
a ring, completing Round 1 (Fig. 1).
Rounds 2 and on, beaded stitches: With the
loop still on the crochet hook, insert
the hook into the next stitch of Round
1. Slide the first bead on the thread up
to and over the hook. Hook the work-
ing thread just below the bead (Fig. 2)
and pull it through the nearest stitch
in Round 1 and the loop, snugging the
beaded stitch. Continue to work in
bead crochet, spiraling around to
form the rope, bringing up a bead
with each stitch. Secure the last cro-
cheted stitch temporarily with a safety
pin, allowing for fit adjustment later.

a chain ring

Fig 3: Attaching the
clasp to the rope
3) ROPE END. Measure the rope for fit,
allowing for an additional " for the
other clasp. To shorten the rope, remove
the safety pin and carefully pull out
rounds of stitches as needed. Crochet
a final round without beads. Cut the
thread from the skein or spool, leaving
an 18" tail. Pull the last stitch so the
thread comes completely through the
loop; dont make a slipknot. Thread
an embroidery needle onto the tail,
knot the thread securely onto the last
chain-stitched loop, weave the tail into
the rope, and trim; repeat with the
starting tail.
editors tip
Its easier to shorten a crocheted rope than to string
more beads to lengthen it. String a few extra se-
quences at the beginning of the project if your de-
sired length may be longer than 7", then crochet
all the strung beads.

Tension is key for this project. Try to keep your work as tight
as possible, but dont be tempted to tie a knot in Round 1.
This would make it difficult to achieve a symmetrical shape.
Experiment with different bead types. Use semiprecious
stones, sparkly crystals, pressed glass, cylinder beads, or seed
beads. Keep in mind that the bead holes need to be wide
enough to allow four or five passes of thread.

1) HAT. Work herringbone and tubular
peyote stitch to form a hat-shaped
component:
Round 1: Use 5' of thread and a size 10
needle to string 6B, leaving an 8" tail.
Tie a square knot to form a circle and
pass through the first B.
Round 2: String 1C and pass through
the next B in Round 1; repeat five
times to add a total of 6C. Step up
through the first C added in this
round (Fig. 1green thread).
Round 3: String 2B and pass through
the next C of Round 2; repeat five
times to add a total of 12B. Step up
through the first 2B added in this
round (Fig. 1blue thread).
Round 4: String 1C and pass through the
next 2B of Round 3; repeat five times
to add a total of 6C. Step up through
the first C added in this round (Fig. 1
red thread).
Round 5: String 1D and pass through the
next C of Round 4; repeat five times
to add a total of 6D. Step up through
the first D added in this round (Fig. 2
green thread). Note: The beadwork will
begin to form a tube.
Round 6: String 1C and pass through
the next D of Round 5; repeat five
times to add a total of 6C. Step up
through the first C added in this
round (Fig. 2blue thread).
Round 7: String 2B and pass through
the next C of Round 6; repeat five
times to add a total of 12B. Step up
through the first B added in this and
subsequent rounds (Fig. 2red thread).
Round 8: String 2B, pass down through
the next B of Round 7, pass through
the next C from Round 6, and pass up
through the next B of Round 7.
Repeat five times to add a total of 12B
(Fig. 3blue thread).
Round 9: String 2B, pass down through
the next B of Round 8, string 1C (a
bridge bead), and pass up through
the next B of Round 8; repeat five
times to add a total of 12B and 6C
(Fig. 3red thread).

Work with very tight tension
to create the hat shape.
Change to a size 12 beading needle
if you find it difficult to pass
through the beads.
Use the best-quality beads you
can afford; the effort spent is the
same, but the end result will show
the difference.
Replace the fire-polished beads
with crystals for a different look.

contact: All materials: U Bead It, (916) 488-2323,
www.ubeaditsacramento.com.
Center: String one 4mm bicone and pass
through the opposite C bridge bead
on the first hat. String one 4mm
bicone and pass through the last C
exited on the second hat. Repeat the
thread path to reinforce (Fig. 6
blue thread). Weave through beads
to exit the middle C of the next
Round 14 picot.
Bottom: String 1C and pass through the
opposite middle C on the Round 14
picot of the first hat, then string 1C

Repeat entire step to connect all the hats
into a straight line.
3) CLASP COVER. Repeat Rounds 17
of the hat. Place half of the clasp into the
form, allowing the clasp loop to poke
through Round 1. Weave through Round
7 again to pull the beads tight around
the top of the clasp (Fig. 7). Secure the
thread and trim. Set aside. Repeat to
cover the other clasp half.
4) CLASP. Start a new 8" thread that
exits from a bridge C bead at one end of
the bracelet. String 4A and pass through
the last C exited to form a loop (Fig. 8);
repeat the thread path to reinforce. Se-
cure the thread and trim. Repeat at the
other end of the bracelet. Use jump
rings to connect the clasp halves to the
loops just formed.
Round 10: String 2B, pass down through
the next B of Round 9, pass through
the next C from Round 9, and pass up
through the next B; repeat five times
to add a total of 12B (Fig. 4black thread).
Round 11: String 2B and pass down
through the next B of Round 10;
string 1A, 1C, and 1A and pass up
through the next B; repeat five times

(Fig. 4orange thread).
Round 12: String 2B, pass down through
the next B of Round 11, string 1E, and
pass up through the next B; repeat five
times to add a total of 12B and 6E
(Fig. 4green thread).
Round 13: String 2B, pass down through
the next B of Round 12, pass through
the next E from Round 12, and pass
up through the next B; repeat five
times to add a total of 12B (Fig. 4
blue thread).
Round 14: String 3C and pass down
through the next B of Round 13;
string 2A, 1C, and 2A and pass up
through the next B; repeat five times
to add a total of 24C and 24A. Repeat
the thread path to reinforce and exit
through the middle C of a 3C picot set
(Fig. 4red thread). Dont trim the
working thread.
Round 15: Thread a size 12 needle onto
the tail. String 1 fuchsia 3mm bicone
and pass through the opposite B in
Round 1. Pass back through the bicone
and through the first B exited (Fig. 5).
Repeat the thread path to reinforce.
Secure the tail thread and trim.
Set the hat aside.
Repeat to form six more hats.
2) CONNECTIONS. Assemble the hats
into a bracelet with bead connections:

Find your Niche
As a designer, you may love to experi-
ment and try new stitches, colors, and types
of finished pieces, but youll have a much
easier time finding customers if they can
succinctly describe your work. Not every
piece needs to fit your core specialty, but
the majority should. Carol, for example,
is known for her beaded cuffs, while
MaryLou gets repeat business for her
bead-crochet necklaces and lariats.
2
Do the Necessary
Non-Bead Work
When some designers daydream about
selling their work, they can be unrealistic,
picturing themselves comfortably settled
in their studio, spending all day designing.
The reality is quite different. All three
designers spend a considerable amount
of timeanywhere from 25 to 50 percent
on other critical business tasks: accounting,
packaging, marketing (including Twitter
and Facebook), customer service, photog-
raphy, and writing. Two designers admitted
that the only time they have to bead is
in the evenings, after their other work
is done.
3
Increase Your Number
of Products
MaryLou has made more than 5,000 sales
from her Etsy shop, which she opened in
2006. At one point, MaryLou shares,
I was becoming discouraged because I
wasnt selling much beadwork. I considered
abandoning it, but then I looked at it from
the perspective of a potential customer and
realized that I needed to provide more
choices. Once she built up her inventory,
her sales began to increase almost immedi-
ately. She currently lists more than 200
finished pieces in her shop.
WHILE THERES NO QUESTION that the economy
has affected sales of handmade goods along with everything
else, there are still some designers who are selling successfully.
How do they do it?
Three beadwork designersCarol Dean Sharpe, Laura McCabe,
and MaryLou Holvenstotshare their advice about selling in
galleries, shops, and online. Its worth noting that none of them
use identical strategies. Part of being successful is finding out
what works best for you and focusing on those key areas. Here
are their best tips:

Create Variations
Consider creating variations of the
same projectsuch as a beaded bracelet
with the same pattern but different
colorsrather than unique, one-of-a-
kind pieces. This strategy not only helps
you build inventory quickly, but it can
help with pricing. Carol notes, I spread
the cost of creating a new design, which
can take countless hours of inspiration
and actual design, over several iterations
of it. This allows my work to be more
affordable than if I made only one
original version.
5
Offer Custom Work
MaryLou estimates that half her
business is custom work. While custom-
ization for her generally means chang-
ing colors and sizes of existing work,
shes also done some one-of-a-kind de-
signs, such as creating Obama-themed
cuffs during the last election.
Sometimes customized work can
become part of your line. For example,
Carol created a beaded cuff with several
sevens on it for a grandmother who
loved playing the slot machines in
Atlantic City. Shes sold several copies
of the design and now sells the pattern
to other beaders.
The key to offering custom work is
communication. Laura no longer does
custom work partly because of this issue.
She notes, People are often not very
good at communicating what it is they
want. Because they dont usually under-
stand the medium, they cant under-
stand what will and wont work from an
aesthetic and technical standpoint.
Youll want to make sure that you dont
end up with a commissioned piece
that the customer refuses to buy and is
so specialized that you cant sell to
another customer.
6
Use Multiple Venues
All three designers have offered
their work in multiple places at the same
time. You could choose multiple online
outletssuch as Etsy, ArtFire, and Alere
Modernseveral brick-and-mortar
7
Price It Right
Often the panicked response to no
or low sales is to reduce your price.
Carol advises, Do not try to sell by un-
derpricing your work. If you do not
value your time and craftsmanship, you
cannot expect potential customers to do
so either. Laura suggests that you
should err on the side of overpricing.
Its virtually impossible to raise prices,
but you can always lower them.
You may find that certain venues
allow for more profit than others. Laura
started out selling her work on consign-
ment at a store that took 50 percent of
the sale price. She now sells directly to
customers through her website. The
labor involved in producing the work is
so great that there is no way to recoup
your costs if you have to pay that fee.
shops and galleries, or a mix of both.
You could also seek out nontraditional
outlets. Carol, for example, sold her
work at the local farmers market before
moving her business online. Using mul-
tiple venues increases your exposure to
potential customers. It also makes you
less vulnerable to outside circumstances,
such as having the gallery or shop that
carries your work close, something that
all three designers have experienced.
8
Educate the Customer
Pricing is particularly tricky for
beadwoven pieces. Laura notes, The
majority of the cost in finished bead-
work is labor, not materials. This is
quite different from a lot of precious-
metal jewelry, which, while having labor
costs, also has a great perceived value as-
sociated with the precious metals and
stones used. MaryLou agrees, stating,
Many people dont understand or ap-
preciate the number of hours and
amount of skill required to create a piece
of beadwoven jewelry. Their only expo-
sure to beadwork is the inexpensive jew-
elry that comes from developing
countries. Talking about the creation
process, whether on a blog or in the
product description, is one way to
educate customers on the value of
your work.
9
Branch Out
In addition to selling finished
work, all three designers do related ac-
tivities, such as selling patterns and kits,
writing instructions for books and mag-
azines, or teaching. Not only do these
activities provide additional income, but
they can be good advertising for your
beadwoven pieces.

Join Others
Share business ideas with oth-
ers by talking in person to beaders at
your local bead society or bead shop or
online through Facebook, Twitter,
Beading Daily, or a specialized group such
as the Etsy Beadweavers. MaryLou has
found that most beadweavers are willing
to share resources and tips. Her online
friends provide inspiration and
encouragement every step of the way.
One last bit of advice: Slow and
steady is a good way to build your busi-
ness, so be persistent. All three jewelry
designers have been selling their work
for years; none of them was an over-
night sensation.

Fig. 1: Forming Rows 112 of a petal
2) BUD PETALS. Use tight tension to
stitch petals for the bud:
Rows 1 and 2: Cut 4' of cream thread, place
it on a needle, and fold the thread to
get a 2' doubled thread. String a ten-
sion bead, leaving a 5" tail. String 8D,
3F, 5E, and 3B; pass back through the
last E added to form a picot.
Row 3: String 1E, skip the next bead
from the previous row, and pass back
through the following bead; repeat
across using I and J to blend the color
from light to dark. Work the final
stitch with 1D.
Row 6: Work 2 peyote stitches with 1C in
each stitch, 8 stitches with 1I or 1J in
each stitch, and 2 stitches with 1B in
each stitch for a total of 12 beads.
After passing through the last B in
Row 5, pass back through the B just
added, decreasing the row.
Rows 710: Repeat Row 6 four times,
stitching Bs at the petal tip and
Cs at the base, with I and J in the
middle stitches.
Rows 11 and 12: Work peyote stitch with Bs
toward the petal tip and Cs at the
base. Weave through beads to exit
from a B on the other side of the picot
formed in Row 1 (Fig. 1).
Second side: Repeat Rows 312 to form
the petals other side. Remove the ten-
sion bead, but dont trim the thread.
Set the petal aside.
Repeat entire step four times for a total
of 5 petals.
Join: Place the petals side by side so the
bases touch and the petals all curve in
the same direction. Use the working
threads to square-stitch the first
3 edge rows of 1 petal to another petal,
near each of the petals bases (Fig. 2).
Secure all of the threads but the
longest and trim; set the large
flower aside.
1) FLOWER PETALS. Use tight tension
to peyote-stitch petals for the flower:
Rows 1 and 2 (petal center): Cut 6' of cream
thread, place it on a needle, and fold
the thread to get a 3' doubled thread.
String a tension bead, leaving a 5" tail.
String 16D, 6F, 5E, and 3B; pass back
through the last E added, forming
a picot.
Row 3: String 1E, skip the next bead
previously strung, and pass back
through the next bead; repeat across
using D, F, and E to blend the colors
from light to dark for a total of
13 beads in this row.
Row 4: Work 12 peyote stitches across the
row, starting with 1D in each stitch
and using I and J to blend the colors
from dark to light. Work 1 stitch with
1B. For the final stitch, string 1B, pass
through the B at the base of the picot,
and pass back through the B just
added, decreasing the row, for a total
of 14 beads in this row.
Row 5: Work 2 peyote stitches with 1B in
each stitch, then work 9 stitches using
I and J to blend colors from light to
dark. Work 1 stitch with 1C. For the
final stitch, string 1C, pass through
the D at the base of the petal, and pass
back through the C just added,
decreasing the row, for a total of
13 beads in this row.

11 peyote stitches with 1K in each
stitch and 2 peyote stitches with 1H in
each stitch. Weave through beads to
exit from the first H added in this
round (Fig. 3red thread).
Stem: String 2H; pass through the last H
added in Round 6, the first H added
in Round 6, and the 2H just added.
Continue to work ladder stitch with
2H in each stitch to form a stem
3 rows long. Dont trim the thread;
set the leaf aside.
Repeat entire step once. Repeat it twice
more, but omit the stems and stitch
1 leaf to the top of the stem of another
leaf. Secure the thread of 1 double leaf
and trim. Use the working thread of the
other double leaf to continue working
ladder stitch for 4" using 2L in each
stitch. Set the 2 double-leaf stems aside.
4) MEDIUM AND SMALL LEAVES.
Peyote-stitch more leaves:
Medium leaves: Repeat Rounds 16 of the
large leaf, except use 7H, 11G, and 6H
for Rounds 1 and 2, forming the
herringbone stitches at the near half-
way points and working the colors
randomly as before. Stitch the stem
using L. Set aside. Repeat for a total of
2 medium leaves.
Small leaves: Repeat Rounds 16 of the
large leaf, except use 5H, 9G, and 4H
for Rounds 1 and 2, forming the
herringbone stitches at the near half-
way points and working the colors
randomly as before. Set aside. Repeat
for a total of 3 small leaves.
3) LARGE LEAF. Peyote-stitch an irreg-
ularly shaped leaf:
Rounds 1 and 2: Cut 4' of green thread,
place it on a needle, fold the thread to
get a 2' doubled thread, and knot the
ends together. String 9H, 1G, 1H, 1G,
1H, 14G, 1H, 1G, 1H, 1G, and 13H;
pass through the knotted loop of
thread to make a larks head knot and
pass back through the last H added to
form a circle (Fig. 3black thread).
Round 3: String 2H and pass through the
next H of Round 2. Manipulate the
beads so the vertical holes of the beads
are almost parallel to form a herring-
bone stitch. Work 11 peyote stitches
using 1H or 1G in each stitch, blend-
ing the colors. String 2G and pass
through the next G of Round 2. Work
10 peyote stitches using 1G or 1H in
each stitch, blending the colors. Step
up through the first H added in this
round (Fig. 3purple thread). Note: It
looks more natural if the leaf colors
and shapes are irregular.
Round 4: Repeat Round 3, adding
12 beads between the herringbone
stitches on one side of the leaf and
11 on the other (Fig. 3green thread).
Round 5: Repeat Round 3, adding
13 beads between the herringbone
stitches on one side of the leaf and
12 on the other (Fig. 3blue thread).
Round 6: Pass down through the next H
added in Round 5, then work 3 peyote
stitches with 1H in each stitch and
11 peyote stitches with 1K in each stitch.
String 1K and pass down through the
next K to form a picot, then work
Row 4: Work 1 peyote stitch with 1D, then
continue across using I and J to blend
colors from dark to light. For the final
stitch, string 1B, pass through the B at
the base of the picot, and pass back
through the B just added, decreasing
the row.
Row 5: Work 1 peyote stitch with 1B, then
continue across using I and J to blend
colors from light to dark. Use 1D for
the final stitch at the petal base. String
1C, pass through the D at the petals
base, and pass back through the C just
added, decreasing the row.
Row 6: Work 1 peyote stitch with 1C,
either 1I or 1J in the middle stitches,
and 1 stitch with 1B. After passing
through the last B in Row 5, pass back
through the B just added, decreasing
the row.
Row 7: Repeat Row 6.
Rows 8 and 9: Work 2 rows with B toward
the petals tip, and C toward the
petals base.
Second side: Weave through beads to exit
from a B on the other side of the picot
formed in Row 1. Repeat Rows 39 to
form the other side of the petal.
Remove the tension bead, but dont
trim the thread. Set the petal aside.
Repeat entire step to form a second
petal.
Join: Place the petals together so the
cupped-base edges touch. Use the
working threads to square-stitch the
first edge row of 1 petal to the other
one, connecting each side to form a
bud. Secure all but the longest thread
and trim; set the bud aside.

end of the strap that exits from Row 1.
Work a strip of ladder stitch 3N wide
and 3 rows long. Repeat the thread
path to reinforce, adding 1A at the
ends of each ladder to form decorative
picots (Fig. 8blue thread). Work a 15-row
strip of two-drop odd-count peyote
stitch off the ladder using 2H in each
of 3 stitches, adding 1A at the end of
each row to form decorative picots
(Fig. 8red thread). Wrap the strip
around one side of the square toggle
ring so the size 11 cylinder beads just
added touch the back of the necklace.
Zip the last row of the strap to the first
stack of herringbone stitch on the
back of the necklace. Secure the
thread and trim.
Toggle bar: Start a new 8" thread that
exits from Row 2 at the other end of
the strap. String 9A and the loop of
the toggle bar; pass through the last
N exited. Repeat the thread path to
reinforce. Secure the thread
and trim.
13) ASSEMBLY. Position and stitch the
floral components to the strap:
Flower: Measure 5" down from the
toggle ring and start a new 3' cream
thread on the face of the strap.

point. Exit up through the center of
the flower. String 1 large netted pearl,
1 light amethyst 3mm bicone, and 3B;
pass back through the bicone and
pearl; repeat the thread path to
reinforce.
Vine: Position the vine on the strap so the
double-leaf end is just to the right of
the flower, the long stem flows under-
neath the flower, and the bud end
swings up to the left near the top of
the strap. Stitch the vine to the strap
in several places along its length to
secure it. Stitch the remaining small
leaf to the strap on the right end of
the vine.
Fire-polished beads: Weave through beads
to exit up through the strap near the
center of one of the double-leaf com-
ponents. String 1 fire-polished round,
16B, and 1C; pass up through the fire-
polished round; repeat twice, varying
the number of B and C to give a natu-
ral look. String 1 ivory 4mm pearl and
pass back through the fire-polished
round and the strap; repeat the entire
thread path to reinforce. Repeat this
section to add the other fire-polished
round near the center of the other
double-leaf component.
Dangles: Weave through beads to exit
from a picot along the bottom edge of
the strap, just to the left of the flower.
String 4J, 1 light amethyst 3mm
bicone, 4J, 1 briolette, and 4J; pass
back through the bicone and 4J;
repeat the thread path to reinforce.
Repeat to attach another dangle
2 columns down from the previous
one, this time starting the stringing
sequence with 9J.
Dentelles: Stitch 1 netted dentelle to the
strap just to the bottom right of the
double-leaf end of the vine. Stitch the
remaining 2 netted dentelles just to
the bottom left of the bud end of
the vine.
Pearls: Use the same technique as with
the flower center to stitch the netted
pearls to the strap, placing them in a
pleasing manner throughout the
design. Secure all threads and trim.

TRIANGLE WEAVE
}
Jean Campbell
Are you a right-angle-weave fan? If so, why not learn about
its less-square cousin, triangle weave? Its a challenging
stitch thatll keep you on your mental toes, but the results
are quite beautiful. Ive used bugle beads in my examples
for maximum clarity, but you can use any type of bead
for this stitcheven big glass ovals look great!

and the first bead just added (Photo 3).
Row 1, Units 37: String 2 beads; pass

first bead just added (Photo 4); repeat
to form as many units as desired.
For this example, Ive stitched 7 units.
For the final unit, pass through both
beads added to the unit.

What Would Happen If?
Got flat triangle weave down? Now its time to try a tube. Be careful about what
type of beads you use since the thread will be under more tension and may be cut
by a sharp bead edge. I used large cylinder beads for the sample shown on page 74.
Round 1: Work a row of triangle weave
with an odd number of units (in my
example I stitched 9). Fold the strip of
beads so the first and last units touch.
String 1 bead and pass through the
mirror bead of the first unit; then
pass through the last bead exited on
the final unit and the first bead just
strung to form a ring (Fig. 1).

Row 2, Unit 2: String 2 beads; pass
through the last bead exited, the
2 beads just added, and the next hori-
zontal bead from the previous row
(Photo 7).
Row 2, Unit 3: String 1 bead, pass through
the nearest bead from the previous
unit, the last bead exited from the
previous row, and the bead just added
(Photo 8).
Row 2, Units 47: Repeat Row 2, Units 2
and 3, twice or to the end of the row.
Weave through beads to exit the hori-
zontal bead in the second-to-last unit,
toward the edge of the work.
Row 3, Unit 1: String 2 beads; pass
through the last bead exited and the
first bead just added (Photo 9).
Row 3, Unit 2: This is a little weird here.
To keep the sides of the beadwork in a
line, you need to backtrack one stitch.
So, string 2 beads, pass through the
last one exited, and the second bead
added to the previous unit (Photo 10).
Row 3, Unit 3: String 2 beads; pass
through the last bead exited and the
first bead just added (Photo 11).
Row 3, Units 47: Repeat Row 2, Units 3
and 2 (in reverse order), twice or to
the end of the row (Photo 12).
Repeat Rows 2 and 3 to desired length.
Round 2, Unit 1: String 2 beads; pass
through the last bead exited and the
first bead just added.
Round 2, Unit 2: String 2 beads; pass
through the last bead exited, the
2 beads just added, and the next hori-
zontal bead from Round 1.
Round 2, Unit 3: String 1 bead; pass
through the nearest bead from the
previous unit, the nearest horizontal
bead from the previous round, and
the bead just added.
Round 2, Units 49: Repeat Units 2 and 3
from this round twice, then repeat
Unit 2. Exit from the last bead added.
Round 2, Unit 10: String 1 bead; pass
through the end bead
from Unit 1,
the end bead from
Unit 9, and the
bead just added
(Fig. 2).
Repeat Round 2
to desired length.
Note: I worked with single thread in my
examples, but its best to work with
doubled thread when using bugles
because of their sharp edges. You may
also reinforce the beadwork by
reweaving the entire thread path
thats what I ended up doing for both
of my samples.

techniques
PAS S THROUGH VS
PAS S BACK THROUGH
Pass through means to move your
needle in the same direction that the
beads have been strung. Pass back
through means to move your needle
in the opposite direction.
F I NI S HI NG AND START-
I NG NEW THREADS
Tie off your old thread when its
about 4" long by making a simple
knot between beads. Pass through
a few beads and pull tight to hide
the knot. Weave through a few more
beads and trim the thread close
to the work. Start the new thread
by tying a knot between beads
and weaving through a few beads.
Pull tight to hide the knot. Weave
through several beads until you
reach the place to resume beading.
F RI NGE
Exit from your
foundation row
of beads or fab-
ric. String a
length of beads
plus 1 bead.
Skipping the
last bead, pass
back through all
the beads just strung to create a
fringe leg. Pass back into the founda-
tion row or fabric.
S QUARE STI TCH
Begin by stringing 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 sec-
ond bead just strung. Continue by
stringing 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.
HERRI NGBONE STI TCH
Begin with a foundation row of even-
count ladder stitch. String 2 beads,
pass down through the second-to-
last bead in the ladder and up
through the next bead. String
2 beads, pass down the next bead and
then up through the following.
Repeat to the end of the row. To end
the row, pass back through the last
bead strung. To begin 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 and passing down
then up through 2 beads of the previ-
ous row. The 2-bead stitch will cause
the beads to angle-up in each
column, like a herringbone fabric.
Begin tubular herringbone stitch
with a foundation row of ladder
stitch. Join the ends together to form
a ring. 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.
L ADDER STI TCH
String 2 beads and pass through
them again. 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. Use this stitch to
make strips of beads or as the foun-
dation for brick and herringbone
stitches.
PEYOTE STI TCH
One-drop flat peyote stitch begins by
stringing 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 previ-
ous row. Continue adding 1 bead at a
time, passing over every other bead
of the previous row.
Two-drop flat peyote stitch is
worked the same as above, but with
2 beads at a time instead of 1.
Make a mid-project peyote-stitch
increase by working a two-drop over
a one-drop in one row. In the next
row, work a one-drop peyote stitch
between the two-drop. For a smooth
increase, use very narrow beads for
both the two-drop and the one-drop
between.
To make a mid-project peyote-
stitch decrease, simply pass the
thread through 2 beads without add-
ing a bead in the gap. In the next
row, work a regular one-drop peyote
stitch over the decrease. Keep ten-
sion taut to avoid holes.
For circular peyote stitch, string
3 beads and form the first round by
passing through the first bead. 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 all around,
then step up at the end of the
round. Continue in this manner,
alternating the two previous rounds.
You may need to adjust the bead
count depending on the relative size
of the beads in order to keep the cir-
cle flat.
For tubular peyote stitch, string an
even number of beads and make a
foundation circle by passing through
them two more times, exiting from
the first bead strung. String 1 bead
and pass through the third bead of
the foundation circle. String 1 bead
and pass through the fifth bead of the
foundation circle. Continue adding
1 bead at a time, skipping over 1 bead
of the first round, until you have
added half the number of beads of
the first round. Step up for the next
round by exiting from the first bead
of the second round. String 1 bead,
pass through the second bead added
in the second round, and pull thread
tight. String 1 bead and pass through
the third bead added in the second
round. Continue around, filling in
the spaces 1 bead at a time. Exit
from the first bead added in each
round.

PROJECT RATING
BRI CK STI TCH
Begin by creating a foundation row
in ladder stitch. String 2 beads and
pass under the closest exposed loop
of the found ation row and back
through the second bead. String 1
bead and pass under the next
exposed loop and back through the
bead just strung; repeat.
To decrease within a row, string 1
bead and skip a loop of thread on the
previous row, passing under the sec-
ond loop and back through the bead.
To increase within a row, work
two stitches in the same loop on the
previous row.
For circular brick stitch, work
increases as needed to keep the work
flat; at the end of each round, pass
through the first and last beads to
stitch them together, then string 2
beads to begin the next round.
For tubular brick stitch, join a lad-
der-stitched foundation row into a
ring by passing through the first and
last beads of the row, with the holes
facing up. *String 1 bead and pass
under the closest exposed loop of the
foundation ring. Pass back through
the same bead and repeat, adding
1 bead at a time. Finish the round by
passing down through the first bead
and up through the last bead of the
current round. Repeat from *.
NETTI NG ( S I NGL E
THREAD)
Begin by stringing 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.
BACKSTI TCH BEAD
EMBROI DERY
Begin by passing through the fabric,
from wrong side to right side. String
4 beads. Lay the beads against the
fabric and pass down through it just
past the fourth bead. Pass up through
the fabric between the second and
third beads and pass through the last
2 beads just strung. String 4 beads
and repeat.
RI GHT- ANGL E WEAVE
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, pass through
the last bead passed through in the
previous unit, and the first 2 just
strung; the thread path will resemble
a figure eight, alternating directions
with each unit. To begin the next
row, pass through beads to exit the
side bead of the last unit. String
3 beads, pass through the last bead
passed through, and the first bead
just strung. *String 2 beads, pass
back through the next side bead of
the previous row, the last bead passed
through in the previous unit, and the
last 2 beads just strung. Pass
through the next side bead of the
previous row, string 2 beads, pass
through the last bead of the previous
unit, the side bead just passed
through, and the first bead just
strung. Repeat from * to complete
the row, then begin a new row as
before.
CROCHET
Fig. 1
Fig. 2
For single crochet, insert hook into
an edge stitch, yarn over hook and
draw a loop through stitch, yarn over
hook (Fig. 1) and draw it through
both loops on hook (Fig. 2).
For bead chain stitch, pull the bead
close to the loop on the hook, yarn
over, and pull the loop through.

I
f you think C-Koop is a cute nick-
name for former Surgeon General
C. Everett Koop, then its likely
been awhile since youve visited a
bead show or read a beading magazine.
C-Koop Beads is owned by Sara
Lukkonen, a Minnesota artist who
named her bead business after her
chicken-coop studio. That didnt
last long, she admits, once it turned
October and began to snow.
Her chicken-coop studio may not
have survived the winter, but Saras
interest in enameling has steadily
grown since the mid-1970s, when she
first experimented with a hobby kiln.
She enjoyed the results, but found the
process slow. After reading about torch
enameling, Sara began using this
method and selling simple jewelry with
her handmade beads. She took a break
to start her family and her dietitian
career. Then in 1998, she purchased
a huge lot of glass powder at an estate
sale and began crafting jewelry for
herself in her basement studio.
A year later, Sara walked into The
Bead Monkey wearing a bracelet with
her handmade enameled copper beads.
The beads caught the managers atten-
tion, and she asked to sell them in her
shop. Eventually, Sara hired her
niece Jenny Emig full time to help
her with torch work, along with two
other employees.
While she may not view herself as
an artist, Sara always made things as a
child. Her attempt to excel in a college
art class, however, was unsuccessful.
Her professor told her that she had
no sense of design.
Given C-Koops tremendous popu-
larity in the beading community, its
safe to say that there are thousands of
beaders who would disagree with that
art professors assessment. Beaders
crowd around her table at the sixteen
national and local shows she does each
year. She also sells beads at bead shop
trunk shows and online. She laughs
when she hears that some beaders
hoard her work. Im making beads all
the timeyou dont need to do that! If
I ever decide not to do them any more,
Ill give everyone plenty of warning.
Despite her sometimes eighteen-
hour days, an announcement about
her retirement doesnt appear to be
coming any time soon. In 2011, Sara
will teach a few workshops, dreaming
of the day when she can host artist
retreats on her property. For now, she
plans to keep her teaching commit-
ments minimal so she can still spend
plenty of time at the torch. Ill keep
making beads as long as its fun, Sara
promises. View more of her work at
www.ckoopbeads.com.

SARA LUKKONEN
For Sara, the excitement of enamel-
ing is that no two beads are exactly
alike. First, the copper shapes need to
be cleaned, domed, and holes added.
The magic comes with the colors, Sara
explains. Glass powders in hundreds
of colors, including some vintage ones,
provide bright layers of color when she
dips the metal into the glass. Frit
finely crushed or broken glassadds
tiny flicks of color on top of the base.
The result is a Monet-like bead, charm,
button, or toggle in more than one
hundred different styles and shapes.
Her customers comparisons to
Monet surprise her, as does the ques-
tion about her art background. I dont
see myself as an artist, she confesses.
I see myself as a chemist. Enameling
does require knowledge of how copper
and glass react chemically. The tem-
perature has to be just right for the
glass to adhere to the copper (not too
hot or it may burn). Its also important
to cover at least 75 percent of the back
of the bead with glass, Sara explains, or
the glass might pop off, especially when
the temperature changes.
