A Bit of
Spring Cleaning
In last issues editors letter, I made grand plans to celebrate
National Craft Month in March by wrapping up several UFOs
(unfinished objects). However, with a toddler and a new baby at home, that ambitious goal proved to be quite difficult. On the flip side, during my attempt to tackle
these projects, I did manage to get a bit of spring cleaning under way in my studio.
While I may not have made much beading progress, I uncovered many of the materials needed to get started on this issues projects.
Here are just a few of our new designs, featuring soft color palettes and flowery
motifs that are perfect for spring. Start with Passementerie Bangle (page 40) by Alice
Coelho, our lovely cover project adorned with a wandering trail of two-hole seed
beads. Try Csilla Csirmazs Confection Cuff (page 54), which joins perfectly stitched
bezels in a trellis-like pattern. And dont miss Evelna Palmontovs fun-to-stitch
components in her Saffron Blooms Bracelet (page 58), plus her inventive way of
incorporating piggy beadsone of the newest bead shapesinto her sweet Sanibel
Medallion (page 50).
Youll also notice in this issue that our talented senior graphic designer, Connie
Poole, did a bit of spring cleaning as well, giving our pages a fresh new look. Easy-toread type, clean opening layouts that focus on our beautiful project photography,
and modern graphics brighten our pages. Tell us what you think of our new design!
Have fun,

How many pieces do you bead in a given


year, and what do you do with those pieces?

I stitch a couple of
pieces each month,
and family and friends
love receiving, buying,
and wearing them.
The Nana Book is a
scrapbook Im creating for my little
granddaughter. A
beaded piece is tucked
into each layout, surrounded by
journaling. Now, if
only shell wait until
shes older to dive into
the bling!

I bead in my spare
time, of which I dont
have all that much at
the moment, so I
average about one
piece a week. I love to
give my jewelry away
as gifts to family and
friends. Nothing says
you matter to me
better than a handmade gift.
Alice Coelho

On average, I make
two to four pieces a
week, depending on
the difficulty and the
reason. If Im creating
pieces to submit to
publications, I make
duplicates and make
various colorways. I do
sell some of my pieces,
but mostly keep them
for myself or give them
as gifts.
Stefanie Deddo-Evans

Sandie Bachand

I dont keep track, but


I estimate thirty
pieces a year. I sell a
few pieces (more when
the economy was
robust), but mostly I
give them away as
gifts. My sister, Tiffy,
has been the recipient
of my best work
because she is the best
sister in the world.
Kathleen Lynam

I bead a few hundred


pieces of jewelry in
any given year. I generally save most of them.
I like to have different
colorways for my
classes. Some of my
jewelry is given to
friends and family,
and I sell just a few
pieces. I had the
hardest time coming
to work when my favorite piece of bead
embroidery had been
sold. I find it extremely
difficult to part with
my jewelry, but its
getting a little easier
every time.

I make roughly thirtyfive pieces of jewelry


in a year, and I save
them for my daughter,
who is currently five
years old.
Evelna Palmontov

Maria Teresa Moran

As many pieces as I
can. This depends
mostly on how much
time I have. Speaking
of time, I wanted to
suggest to authorities
that one year should
have 500 days instead
of 365 so that I could
bead more. And then
twenty-four hours is
not enough for a day;
please make it something like fifty so that
I could bead even
more.

I bead between fifteen


and twenty projects
per year. One or two
(sometimes more) are
elaborate contest
pieces. Four or five are
advanced-workshop
projects, and six to
seven pieces are
beginner-workshop
projects. The rest are
either commissions or
for patterns submitted
to publications or published on my website.

2. Tina Hobbs (READER PARTICIPANT)

The materials in this kit certainly are not me, so this Challenge was
definitely a challenge! Once I embraced the dare, I formed peyotestitched tubes and a beaded magnetic clasp (see my blog post about
how to make this clasp at bit.ly/177KHJG), then strung them together
with a peppering of the floral polymer clay beads. Now all I need is to
be invited to a luau so I can wear the bracelet.

The colors from the kit really inspired this bead-embroidered design. I
loved the dark tones of the iris fringe beads and wanted to incorporate
as many as possible in the design. I added the same iris color
throughout the piece as well as different shades of pink and purple
seed beads. I used a lot of the size 6 and 8 beads, pearls, and glass
beads from the kit.

When I opened the package, I immediately knew that I was going to


create a necklace that focused on making the beautiful polymer clay
flowers the center of attention. The main technique I used was
tubular herringbone, embellishing the stitch with the flowers and
adding fire-polished beads and seed-beaded tendrils as accents. I
finished the design by stringing pearls and seed beads and adding
an S-hook for the clasp.

Shibori ribbon contains rich, deep colors and hues along with a texture
that naturally flows. What an excellent backdrop for the Blushing
Summer Garden! As I beaded on the ribbon, I let the twists, turns, and
pleats direct my needle. Clusters of pearls and Swarovski crystals
ripple down and around the various paths. Flowers made of polymer
clay and Swarovski rivolis bloom throughout.

PERSONALIZE YOUR JEWELRY COMPONENTS

Marquises and Triangles and


SquaresOh, My!
Melinda Barta

Use basic right-angle weave and peanut beads to form a


surprisingly substantial component base, then add a simple
edging to form it into a marquise or other shape.
TECHNIQUES

2) ROUND2. Use peyote stitch to form the

inside round of the component:


End 1: String 1A; pass through the next 2D of

Unit1. String 1C; pass through the next 2D


of Unit1 and the top (now inside) D of
Unit2 (Fig.3, purple thread). Note: Work
with tight tension to encourage the beadwork to curve.
Bottom half: String 1A and pass through the
inside D at the top of the next unit in
Round1; repeat five times (Fig.3, green
thread).
End 2: Pass through the rightmost D of
Round1, Unit8 and the nearest D of
Round1, Unit9. String 1C; pass through the
next 2D of Round1, Unit9. String 1A; weave
through the beads of Round1, Unit9 and
the last C added to exit from the bottom
(now inside) D of Round1, Unit10 (Fig.3,
blue thread).
Top half: String 1A and pass through the
inside D at the bottom of the next unit in
Round1; repeat five times (Fig.3, red
thread).

1) ROUND1. Use right-angle weave and


peanut beads to form the base round of a
marquise-shaped component:
Unit1: Use 5' of thread to string 4D, leaving a
6" tail. Use the working and tail threads to
tie a knot, forming a tight circle; pass
through the first 2D (Fig.1, green thread).
Unit2: String 3D; pass through the last D
exited in the previous unit and the first 2D
just added (Fig.1, blue thread).
Units39: Repeat Unit2 seven times. Pass
through the nearest D to exit from the top
of the strip (Fig.1, red thread).
Units1015: Repeat Unit2 six times (Fig.2,
green thread).
Unit16: String 1D; pass through the top D of
Unit1. String 1D; pass through the last D
exited in Unit15 (Fig.2, blue thread).
Weave through beads to exit toward the
center of the component from the rightmost D of Unit1 (Fig.2, red thread).

3) ROUND3. Pass through the nearest 2D of


Round1, Unit16 to exit from the outer edge
of the component, away from End 1. String 1B
and pass through the next outside D of
Round1; repeat five times. String 1B and pass
through the end 2D of End 2 (Fig.4, blue
thread). String 1B and pass through the nearest outside D of Round1; repeat six times.
String 1B and pass through the end 2D of
End 1. String 1D; pass through the next outside D (Fig.4, red thread). Secure the threads
and trim. Set aside.
4) BRACELET. To use the component in a
bracelet as shown here, repeat Steps 13
using E for D and with the following adjustment to Round3:
Join: Repeat Round3 as before, but instead of
stringing 1B in the first stitch of Round3,
pass through the nearest B below the bottom C of End 2 in the previous component
(Fig.5, green thread). Continue working
Round3 as before (Fig.5, blue thread);
however, instead of stringing 1B for the final
stitch of Round3, pass through the B thats
second from the bottom C of End 2 in the
previous component (Fig.5, red thread).
Repeat this entire step five times, alternating
four D and three E components (with one D
component at each end of the bracelet) or as
desired, for a total of 7 connected components.

Row4: Work 4 stitches with 1B in each stitch.


Rows5 and 6: Work 4 stitches with 1D in

each stitch for two rows (Fig.6). Secure the


threads and trim.
Repeat from the beginning of this step to form
a second tab, but dont trim the working
thread. Weave through beads to exit from 1B in
the center of the tab. String 4B; pass through 1B
in the center of the first tab. Weave through
beads in the tabs and the connecting set of B
several times to reinforce. Secure the thread
and trim. To wear, stack the first and last components of the bracelet and thread one clasp
tab through both components.

The number and size of peyote-stitched
beads placed between the right-angle-weave
units determine the overall shape. Play
around with bead choices to achieve the
desired look.
To make a square, build the side strips of
right-angle weave off of adjacent top and side
beads in the corner units so the sides sit at
right angles to each other. Use size 15 seed
beads for the inside round (Round 2) and
size 11 seed beads for the outside round
(Round 3). Place a drop at each corner.
To make a triangle, build the side strips of
right-angle weave off of adjacent top and side
beads in the corner units so the sides sit at
right angles to each other. Use size 15 seed
beads for the inside round (Round 2) and
size 8 seed beads for the outside round
(Round 3). Place a drop at each corner.

5) CLASP. Use flat peyote stitch to form tabs,


then join them for a cufflink-style clasp:
Rows1 and 2: Use 18" of thread to string 8D,
leaving a 4" tail.
Row3: String 1B, skip the nearest D of the
previous row, and pass back through the
following D; repeat three times.

GLENDA PAUNONEN AND LIISA TURUNEN

Transform tubular herringbone stitch to create a multitude


of artistic shapes, then link them together to form
a gorgeous necklace.
TECHNIQUES

1) OVAL LINKS. Use tubular herringbone

stitch to form the oval links:


Oval, Rounds1 and 2: Use 4' of thread to

string 4A, leaving an 8" tail; pass through


the beads again and adjust them to form
2 columns with 2 beads 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 added in this round and the last 2A
sit side by side; square-stitch these 4A
together to form a ring (Fig.1, red thread).
Oval, Round3: String 2A, pass down
through the next A of the previous round
and up through the following A to form a
tubular herringbone stitch; repeat. Step up
for this and subsequent rounds by passing
up through the first bead added in the current round (Fig.2, beadwork flattened
for clarity).
Oval, Rounds47: Repeat Oval, Round3,
four times.
Oval, Round8: Work 1 stitch with 2A and
1 stitch with 2B. Note: This will begin to
curve the work.

Oval, Round9: Work 1 stitch with 2A and

1 stitch with 2C.


Oval, Round10: Work 1 stitch with 2A and

1 stitch with 2B.


Oval, Round11: Work 1 stitch with 2A and

1 stitch with 2C.


Oval, Round12: Work 1 stitch with 2A and
1 stitch with 2D.
Oval, Round13: Work 1 stitch with 2A and
1 stitch with 2E.
Oval, Rounds1418: Repeat Oval,
Rounds128, in that order (Fig.3, outside
stitches shown, beadwork flattened
for clarity).
Oval, Rounds1925: Repeat Oval, Round3,
seven times.
Oval, Rounds2636: Repeat Oval,
Rounds818, to form the ovals
second curve.
Connect: Hold the beadwork so that Oval,
Rounds1 and 36, touch each other; squarestitch the beads of these 2 rounds together
to form a seamless oval (Fig.4). Dont trim
the thread; set the oval link aside.

artists tips
Leave all extra threads in place to
use for connecting. The size 15o seed
beads get filled up fast, so its not easy
to begin new threads.
Fig.1: Forming Oval,
Rounds1 and 2

Experiment with using different


shapes and sizes of beads in place of
the pearls to get different looks.
Because of the asymmetrical
feeling of the design, use the
magnetic ball clasp to your benefit.
Make a bracelet that can also work as
an extender to the necklace if you feel
like wearing it longer, or wrap the
necklace around your wrist multiple
times to make a cool bracelet.

first half with Twist, Round1, of the second
half, setting the beads of each round so
they touch Twist, Rounds28 and 29, of the
second half. Use the working thread of the
first half to *pass through the middle of
the rope between Twist, Rounds28 and 29,
of the second half; pass up through 1A of
Twist, Round1, of the second half; pass
down through the next A; then pass back
through the rope between Twist, Rounds28
and 29, of the second half. Pass down
through the next A of Twist, Round42, of

Create this sparkling bracelet that features a unique


focal-point closure in a seamless design.

1) STRIPS. Use a right-angle weave variation

with pearls and seed beads to stitch 2 identical strips:


Strip 1, Unit1: Use 7' of thread to string 7A
and 1D, leaving a 4' tail; pass through all the
beads again (Fig.1, blue thread). String 7A
and pass through the last D added; repeat
the thread path to reinforce and exit from
the first 4A just added (Fig.1, red thread).
Strip 1, Unit2: String 3A, 1D, and 3A, then
pass through the last A exited from the previous stitch; repeat the thread path to reinforce and exit from the D just added
(Fig.2, blue thread). String 7A and pass
through the last D exited; repeat the thread
path to reinforce and exit from the first 4A
just added (Fig.2, red thread).
Strip 1, Units 319: Repeat Strip 1, Unit2,
seventeen times or to the desired length
minus " for the clasp. Secure the working thread, but dont trim the tail thread;
set aside.
Strip 2: Repeat Strip 1 for a second strip.
2) CONNECT. Embellish and weave the pearl

strips together to form the bracelet base:


Edge embellishment: Add a needle to the

tail thread of 1 strip. Weave through beads


to exit from the seventh A of Unit1, toward
the work. *String 1A; pass back through the
next A (Fig.3, green thread). String 1A, 1C,

Fig.1: Forming
Strip 1, Unit1

and 1A; pass through the A before the open


space over the next D (Fig.3, blue thread).
Repeat from * seventeen times for a total of
18A. String 1A and pass down through the
7A at the end of the strip (Fig.3, red
thread). Dont trim the thread; set aside.
Repeat from the beginning of this step for
the second strip.
Connect: Arrange the strips horizontally so
that the embellished side of the top strip
touches the non-embellished side of the
bottom one. Use the bottom thread to pass
through the first edge embellishment A of
the top strip and the next A of the bottom
strip (Fig.4, green thread). *Pass through
the next 1A/1C/1A of the top strip and into
the A before the open space over the next
D of the bottom strip (Fig.4, blue thread).
Pass through the next edge embellishment
A of the top strip and the next A of the bottom strip. Repeat from * seventeen times or
to the end of the base to connect the top
and bottom strips (Fig.4, red thread), then
repeat the thread path to reinforce. Note:
Because the edge embellishments may
slightly shorten the base, its best to retest
the base now for fit. If necessary, add units
to each strip and then connect them in the
same manner.

button for the clasp:


Ring: Use 3' of thread to string {1D and 1B}

eight times, leaving a 6" tail. Pass through all


the beads again to form a tight circle; tie a
square knot to secure, and pass through the
first 1D/1B added to hide the knot within
the beadwork (Fig.5, blue thread).
Nets: String 5A and pass through the next B
of the ring; repeat twice, then pass through
the nearest 1D/1B (Fig.5, red thread).
Press the nets just formed toward the inside
of the ring, then manipulate the ring into an
oblong shape.

edge of Round1. Secure the threads and trim.

artists tips
Use tight tension to form sturdy
beaded beads.
To make stringing the beads easier,
make a makeshift needle using wire
or an eye pin and attach it to the
eyelet on one end of the chain.
For a different look, use pearls,
fire-polished beads, or spike beads
for the embellishment.
Wear the beaded beads alone on
a chain, strung with several other
types of beads, or incorporated into
a more elaborate design.

3) EMBELLISHMENT. Start 2' of new thread

that exits up through a side 2B of Round4.


String 1A, 1C, and 1A and pass up through the
side 2B of the next unit in Round4 (Fig.6);
repeat five times, then weave through beads
to exit up through a side 2B of Round1.
Continue embellishing each unit in this manner to cover Round1 with 9C and Round2
with 6C. Secure the thread and trim.
4) Repeat Steps 13 for a second embellished
bead. Repeat Steps 1 and 2, but place 4 crystals
into the center of the beadwork before stitching Rounds4 and 5; repeat twice for a total of
3 non-embellished beads. Note: The crystals

placed into the center of the non-embellished


beads will be loose inside the beads.
5) Use the chain to string {1 non-embellished

bead and 1 embellished bead} twice. String


the remaining non-embellished bead.
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

artists tips
Tension is key; the tighter you work
this project, the firmer your bangle
will be.
Twin beads may be substituted for
Superduos; they work just as well.

Fig.4: Connecting Rounds13 of the inner band

Make sure to use good-quality


size 11 and size 8 seed beads that
are consistent in shape and size.
If you try other color combinations,
contrasting colors for the inner and
outer bands work best.

20 lb thread to string 130E; slide the
beads to the middle of the thread (Fig.4,
green thread).
Inner band, Round3: String 1E, skip 1E of
the previous round, and pass back through
the following E; repeat sixty-four times
(Fig.4, blue thread).
Connect: Taking care that the strip isnt
twisted, pass through the first E of Round3,
back through the following E of Round2,
and through the next E of Round3. Place a
needle on the tail thread and pass back
through the last 3B of Rounds1 and 2 to
form a tubular band (Fig.4, red thread).
Inner band, Round4: Use the working
thread to work 65 stitches with 1E in each
stitch, then step up through the first E.

Fig.1: Stringing the first


sequence for the base

1) BASE. String beads to form the necklace

base:
Clasp: Use the beading wire to string 1 crimp

tube and one half of the clasp; pass back


through the tube and crimp.
Base: String 1E, 1B (center hole, outside to
inside), 1C, and 1B (center hole, inside to
outside) (Fig.1); repeat thirty-five times.
Note: Each B has a hole through the center
of the bead and a hole through one side of
the bead. We will refer to them as the center
hole and the bottom hole, respectively.
String 1E, 1 crimp tube, and the other half of
the clasp; pass back through the tube and
crimp. Cover the tube with 1 crimp cover;
repeat to cover the other tube.
2) LOOPS. Stitch fringe loops between each
set of piggy beads:
Row1: Start 6' of thread that exits from the
first E of the base, toward the beadwork.
String 2A; pass through the bottom hole of
the nearest B, skip the next C, and pass
through the bottom hole of the following B.
String 2D, skip the next E of the base, and
pass through the bottom holes of the next
2B (skipping the C) (Fig.2, blue thread);
repeat thirty-four times. String 2A; pass
back through the final 1B (center
hole)/1C/1B (center hole) (Fig.2,
red thread).

Row2: String 1A; pass back through the near-

est 2D of Row1 (Fig.3, green thread).


String 1G, 1D, 1G, 1F, 1G, 1D, and 1G; pass
back through the last 2D exited in Row1
(Fig.3, blue thread). String 1A; pass
though the next B (center hole), back
through the following C, and through the
next B (center hole) (Fig.3, red thread).
Repeat from the beginning of this row
thirty-four times. Secure the thread
and trim.

artists tips
Cull the piggy beads and rondelles, using the
best-looking and most uniform beads for the center
area of the necklace. Make sure all of the piggy-bead
holes are open before beginning the project.

Fig.3: Forming the first


loop of Row2

The jet 3mm bicones are used to stabilize the


beadwork. Because they are concealed by the piggy
beads, feel free to use instead mismatched bicones,
Chinese 3mm bicones, pairs of size 15 seed beads,
or size 6 seed beads (the smallest fit best).
For variety, incorporate drop or dagger beads
in the fringe portion of the necklace.

artists tips

Main
Colorway

Keep the spacing of the beads in


Rows13 uniform. If they sit too close
to each other, they will bunch up. If
they are too far apart, there will be
gaps.
Always pull the thread straight out
of crystals and beads. Pulling the
thread against a crystal or bead will
weaken the thread and make it more
susceptible to breaking.

Use Nymo size D, Toho One-G, or

earrings. Any thicker thread will fill
the bead holes too quickly.
If desired, paint the back side of
the rivolis with nail polish or Vintaj
patina ink in a color matching your
beadsthis will protect the rivoli
from scratches as well as coordinate
it better with your beadwork.

Twisted Turkish Ropes

Fig.6: Starting
Rope End 1

Insert the crochet hook into the loop, snug


the thread, and slide the final C strung
down to the knot, making sure it sits to the
right of the crochet hook and that the working thread is passing over it.
Rope End 1: Slide the nearest 2C and 3B
down. Place the working thread over the
hook and pull a loop through both loops on
the hook. Slide 3C and 3B down and pull a
loop through both loops on the hook;
repeat. Chain-stitch 2 stitches without adding beads (Fig.6). Slide 3C and 3B down,
insert the hook into the first loop of beads
(the loop with the tail), and pull a loop
through both loops on the hook, making a
slipstitch (Fig.7). Slide 3C and 3B down and
form a slipstitch; repeat eight times.

artists tips
Occasionally stop and review your
stitching. Sometimes the seed beads
will hide beneath the pearl; if this
happens, just pull them out of hiding
with a needle.
If youd rather work with a shorter
length of craft or topstitching thread,
start a shorter strand of beads
(Kathleen recommends about 4') and
add more later. When youve used up
your beads, trim the working thread
6" from the beadwork. Add beads,
continuing in the stringing sequence
from Step 2, keeping in mind that the
last bead strung is the first bead
worked. Join the working thread from
the rope to the new thread by forming a
weavers knot or a tight surgeons knot,
then tie an overhand knot for added
security. Continue crocheting the rope.

Fig.7: Continuing to
crochet Rope End 1

Rope, Round1: Insert the hook into the next

loop of Rope End 1. Slide 1D, 1B, 1C, and 1B


down and form a slipstitch; repeat twice.
Rope, Round2 and on: Insert the hook into
the next loop of the previous round
(between the D and the first B), slide 1D, 1B,
1C, and 1B down, and form a slipstitch
(Fig.8); repeat twice. Repeat from the
beginning of this round using all the
remaining 1D/1B/1C/1B sequences.
Rope End 2: Slide 3C and 3B down and form
a slipstitch; repeat eleven times. Trim the
working thread about 6" from the work and
pull the end through the last loop on the
crochet hook. Secure the tail threads by
carefully working the thread ends into and
out of the rope a few times.
3) CLASP CONNECTION. Start 12" of
braided beading thread that exits from one
end of the rope, away from the beadwork.
String 1 fire-polished round, 1 crystal cube,
1 fire-polished round, and one half of the
clasp; pass back through the round/cube/
round and back into the rope, on the opposite
side from the last bead exited. Repeat the
thread path to reinforce (Fig.9). Secure the
thread and trim. Repeat this entire step using
the other half of the clasp on the other end of
the rope.

4) Repeat Steps 13 using the other colorway


materials for a second necklace. If desired, twist
the 2 necklaces together to wear.

TWO BROTHERS BEADING

In spring 2014, brothers Steven and William Ladd of New York City will exhibit
beaded accessories, drawings, and large-scale installations created in the last ten
years. Their meticulous, complex work using beads, metal fittings, fabric, and twill
tape often abstractly references memories of their St. Louis childhood. In conjunction with the exhibit, the pair will conduct hands-on workshops with local schools,
lecture about their work, and host a trunk show with their jewelry. The Function
and Fantasy exhibit hosted by the Mingei International Museum in San Diego,
California, runs through June 1. Learn more at www.mingei.org and

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

SLIPKNOT
With the tail end of the thread in your palm,
wrap the working thread around your index
and middle fingers, and lay the working
thread across the tail end, forming an X.
Spread your fingers slightly and push the
working thread through your fingers from
the back of your hand. Pull this loop up
slightly while holding the tail end of the
thread to form a knot. Place the loop onto
the crochet hook and pull working thread
to adjust the tension.

CHAIN STITCH
Make a slipknot on crochet hook, *yarn
over and draw through loop of slipknot;
repeat from * drawing yarn through last
loop formed.

SLIP STITCH
*Insert crochet hook in stitch, yarn over and
draw loop through stitch and loop on hook;
repeat from *.

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

BEAD CROCHET
Work 5 chain stitches, incorporating 1 bead
in each stitch.

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.

Join the stitches into a ring by inserting the


crochet hook under the thread that goes
through the first A. Make sure the first A is to
the right of the crochet hook and that the
working thread is passing over the first A.

For two-needle ladder stitch, add a needle


to each end of the thread. String 1bead and
slide it to the center of the thread. String
1bead with one needle and pass the other
needle back through the bead just added;
repeat to form a strip.

Slide 1 bead down next to the work and


form a slip stitch. This new bead becomes
the first bead in the second round. *Insert
the crochet hook under the next thread,
taking care that the hook is just to the left
of the next bead in the previous round.
Slide the next bead down and form a slip
stitch. Again, make sure the working thread
passes over the previous A.

Repeat from * using medium tension to


continue slip-stitching 1 bead at a time.
There will be 5 beads in each round; no step
up is required at the end of each round, just
continue slip-stitching.

SQUARE STITCH
String a row of beads. For the second row,
string 2beads; pass through the second-tolast bead of the first row and through the
second bead just strung. Continue by
stringing 1bead, 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.

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.

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.

techniques (continued)
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.

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.

To increase within a row, work 2stitches 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
2beads to begin the next round.

HERRINGBONE STITCH
Form a foundation row of one- or two-needle even-count ladder stitch and exit up
through the final bead. String 2 beads, pass
down through next bead in the ladder, and
up through the following bead; repeat to
the end of the row. Step up for the next row
by wrapping the thread around previous
threads to exit up through the last bead
strung. To form the next row, string 2 beads
and pass down through the second-to-last
bead of the previous row and up through
the following bead. Repeat, stringing
2 beads per stitch, passing down then up
through 2 beads of the previous row, and
stepping up as before. The 2-bead stitch
will cause the beads to angle in each column, like a herringbone fabric.

Begin tubular herringbone stitch with a


foundation ring of one- or two-needle
even-count ladder stitch. String 2 beads.
Pass down through the next bead and up
through the following bead. Repeat around
the ring. At the end of the round, pass
through the first beads of the previous and
current rounds to step up to the new round.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

OVERHAND KNOT
This is the basic knot for tying off thread.
Make a loop with the stringing material.
Pass the cord that lies behind the loop
over the front cord and through the loop;
pull snug.

SQUARE KNOT
This knot is the classic sturdy knot suitable
for most stringing materials. Make an overhand knot, passing the right end over the
left end. Make another overhand knot, this
time passing the left end over the right end;
pull snug.

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.

To begin two-needle right-angle weave,


add a needle to each end of the thread. Use
one needle to string 3beads and slide them
to the center of the thread. *Use one needle
to string 1 bead, then pass the other needle
back through it. String 1bead on each needle, then repeat from * to form a chain of
right-angle-weave units. To turn at the end
of the row, use the left needle to string
3beads, then cross the right needle back
through the last bead strung. Use the left
needle to string 3beads, then cross the
right needle back through the last bead
strung. To continue the row, use the right
needle to string 2beads; pass the left needle through the next bead on the previous
row and back through the last bead strung.

BY CHLOE CHATENEVER

Jennifer Maestre
PHOTO BY SUE HUSZAR

Jennifer Maestres work proves that artistic talent can truly be expressed
through any medium with the application of a little innovation and
creativity. Her materials of choice are hardware nails and drilled
pencil segments, which she shapes into spiny sculptures. Each piece
is simultaneously sharp and smooth, organic and composed, fragile
and dangerous, making it as thought provoking as it is beautiful.

PHOTOS BY DEAN POWELL

Q: What inspires you?


A: When I started my work with nails and
then pencils, I was inspired by the texture and
the metaphorical possibilities of sea urchins.
I loved the texture of the points. I also loved
the idea that urchins are so dangerous looking but also so attractive and vulnerable.
I was attracted by the idea that an urchin is
a fearsome, beautiful creature containing
a delicate and fragile interior.
Q: Your stitched sculptures and carved
pieces are very different, despite the fact that
pencils are the main building block for both
of them. Can you talk about how a single
material has inspired you to create such different types of art?
A: I was asked to make a teapot from pencils
and needed to make a handle. Certainly I didnt
want to make a handle from points, so I
thought to glue a bunch of pencils together
and carve them to make the handle [see image
below]. The result looked so pretty that I
decided to try to make jewelry from the laminated pencils.

Q: What do you do with all those


pencil shavings?
A: I usually toss the shavings since they end up
as mostly crumbles, and Im not as inspired to
make 2-D work. I did have some pencils made
from wood bonded with plastic that made perfect rosettes when I sharpened them. They had
a little hole in the center, and as a beader at
heart, I thought, Oh, Ill keep those and use
them as beads. They are fragile, but I have
made three or four pieces from these delightful leftovers. One is a collar based on Egyptian
jewelry, which came out beautifully [see
image above].

Q: What skills and techniques do you


rely on the most?
A: Im a peyote-stitch girl all the way. Ive had to
adapt and invent some new ways of using peyote to work with my pencils. Im self-taught,
aside from one workshop with the incredible
Joyce Scott. She introduced me to using a double line of thread, and for that, I thank her.

Q: How do you design your pieces?


A: I have a few different ways of starting a
project. Sometimes Ill make a very rough and
gestural sketch, just to get a sense of the movement I want the sculpture to have. Sometimes
I decide to follow a pattern of increasing and
decreasing at a certain point. I never know
what these sculptures will look like when
Im done. It is very much a dialogue with the
materials, and the materials often speak
more loudly to me than I do to them.
