Learn Bead Stitching with Guest Nealay Patel

DIY Jewelry Making with bead stitching on knitted wire and Jesse James Beads7

I love using golds and browns in my bead stitching designs. They are easy to mix and

match with other colors, especially with your outfit. I’m going to show you how to

create this bracelet using fun and simple bead stitching techniques with gold and

brown Jesse James Beads and SilverSilk capture knitted wire chain. Additionally, I’ll

be showing you a cool new and easy sewing technique to add texture to this

design…as if there wasn’t enough with those gorgeous beads!

Start with 2 feet of knitted wire and 3 feet of Fireline thread. Thread a bead

stitching needle and sew up through the knitted wire, near the end. Pick up 1 small

shell chip, 3 brown-lined aqua seed beads (if you’ve bought the kit for this project,

this is the smaller size seed bead – aka size 11), 1 brown Picasso seed bead (larger

size, aka size 8), one copper seed bead (size 8), another 1 brown Picasso seed bead,

and finally another 3 brown-lined aqua seed beads.

Sew through the small shell chip and about 1” of the top-inside area of the knitted

wire.

Repeat the same bead stitching pattern again so that there are two picots on the

knitted wire (psst – a picot is a designing term for “loop”). Then switch the pattern

to 1 brown-lined aqua seed bead (smaller size), 1 bronze dagger and another 1

brown-lined aqua seed bead.

This is what the pattern should look like. Repeat this pattern for the remaining

knitted wire.

When you get to the end, secure the thread by sewing through the knitted wire to

make a 2”. loop. Tie the main strand with the loop to make a knot.

Trim any threads that stick out.

Crimp one end of a 12” length of Soft Flex Silver beading wire to one half of a clasp

and string a decorative Jesse James Beads bead.

Pass the beaded knitted wire through the beading wire, then pick up a Jesse James

Bead, and then pass the beaded knitted wire through the beading wire again. Repeat

this step to create the wavy texture.
