Weaving the baubles for beginners may seema difficult matter, but this illusion disappears immediately after the end of weaving the first baubles. Baubles are familiar to many of us since school days. Anyone who did not directly engage in the weaving, certainly received them as a gift or at least saw how the others wove. What is a bauble? This is a small bracelet on hand, made for yourself or for a loved one. It is believed that even the Indians wove each other these wonderful ornaments. Tradition to share self-made ornaments was adopted by hippies. More often, bracelets weave teenage girls as a gift to friends and friends. Today, the bauble (especially the steam room) is a symbol of friendship and a good attitude towards man. As a rule, a bouquet is created for a specific person. Its goal is to express sympathy, the desire for good, luck and other benefits. Nevertheless, today many weave bracelets to order and just sell finished products. Baubles weave from bright threads (mulina, iris, poppy and others), as well as beads, leather laces. Exotic types of modern baubles are products from thin colored wires and crocheted bracelets (crochet and knitting needles). Among all kinds of baubles, a special place is occupied by beaded jewelry on a line. They do not change their appearance with the passage of time, they do not wear off, they do not wear out, they retain their original beauty. Working with beads and fishing line is very simple, so weaving braces for beginners will not turn into something more like a nodular letter of Indian tribes. There are quite a few techniques of weaving with beads. Consider 3 simple, with which all beginners will cope.
Materials and tools that will be needed in the work
- fishing line 0.2 mm in diameter;
- beaded needle (1-2 pcs.);
- beads № 11 (usual) in different colors;
- saucers or other convenient containers according to the number of colors of the beads;
- accessories (fasteners / locks);
- sharp scissors;
- scheme braiding baubles.
The thinner the line, the more elastic it is (betterstretches) but also the tensile strength of such a line will be less. The bead thread is a very thin line, the diameter of which is only 0.12 mm. Beginner masters may not be able to cope with the twisting and tangling thread, so it is better not to take it. For acquaintance with bead weave the optimum size is 0.2 mm. The needle needs the thinnest (and longest) possible. It is called - beaded. It is sold in all shops for sewing and needlework. № 11 - the most common size of beads. The product from it looks neat and very beautiful. This size allows you to create interesting drawings and ornaments on a small area of the bracelet, holding a lot of beads, and the master does not strain his eyes, which is also very important. Before the beginning of weaving, the usual (Czech, for example) beads must be calibrated, that is, manually sorted by size, choosing approximately the same beads. There is a high-quality Japanese beads (TOHO, MIYUKI). Its distinctive features are: first, the same size for all beads in the package, and secondly, their rather large opening, which is very important for beginners. The large diameter of the hole allows you to repeatedly pass the needle with a fishing line in the same bead. As a container, where the beads are poured, ordinary saucers or lids will do. Stringing needle beads directly from them is easiest. The accessories in beadwork are a separate big topic. Almost any fenichka means any fixing mechanism. When creating a new bracelet, pay attention to the lock-hooks and toggle locks. Often they give the product a special charm and charm. Are sold in online stores of handmade accessories. Sharp scissors are needed to ensure that the end of the line is as thin as possible. So it's easier to get into the needle. Without a scheme for baubles, it is better not to start at all. Before beginning any weaving, you need to create (or find a ready-made) scheme for the future product.
Techniques of weaving baubles
Simple brooms are ideal for beginners. Straight weaving (hand weaving) In this technique it is convenient to weave braces with text (for example, the name of a friend). Beads are lined up in straight rows both horizontally and vertically. The result is a long strip. It takes a fairly long line, so it makes sense to cut off at 1.5 m from the spool, and when it is finished, cut another 1.5 m, which must be connected with the work.
Weaving by a cross (on 2 needles) Perhaps this is onefrom the simplest kinds of weaving. It allows you to create loose, but uniform patterns. Such a baubles will not stretch either in length or in width. For a small broom, 1.5 m of fishing line is required.
Snake Simple and effective technique. Allows you to close the ring in the ring and do not use any fasteners. Plaitsya on 1 needle. It will take about 1 m of the line. We'll weave a gold bracelet with a blue center.
Thus, the mechanism of weaving the baubles turned out to be quite simple.
