beaded bracelets 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. beautiful weaving of beads

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. weaving machinery from beads

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 begins with the set of necessary number of beads of row number 1 (look at the diagram), plus the first bead of the row number 2 (next).
  • Igloo to go one more time in the penultimate bead andreturn it to the second row, closing the thread in the ring. The extreme bead of the new series should lie strictly parallel to the extreme in the previous row. Thus, over the last bead in the first row, a bead in the second row was fixed.
  • String a new bead and hold the needle through the penultimate in row number 1, draw the thread through the strung bead (the second from the edge). We string the third bead and repeat it to the end of the row.
  • The weaving should be turned and continue according to the described principle, checking the color scheme.
  • In order to fix the working thread, you need to repeatedly pass it into the neighboring beads. Attach the fasteners. Fenichka is ready!
  • 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.

  • We must begin the weaving immediately from two sides: each end of the line to be threaded into its needle.
  • String 3 beads, let them slip into the center of the line. In a quadruple bead, pass both needles in opposite directions, thereby closing the thread in the ring.
  • For each needle according to the scheme, we string 1beads, let's slip down. In the third bead, we also pass both needles, creating a new ring. It is necessary to tighten the line all the time, so that the weaving is tight. In the same way finish the series.
  • The last cross in the row weave a little differently: put 2 beads on the left end of the line, and then in the third, also insert both ends of the line from opposite sides, as in all the crosses.
  • In the second row we weave not 3 but 2 beads using 2 of the first row.
  • We continue to the end.
  • 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.

  • We type 1 gold, 2 blue, 5 gold and 2 blue beads. We return the needle to the very first bead (gold) so that the shape is not round, but drop-shaped.
  • We string 4 gold and 2 blue beads. We return to the 8th bead (if counted from the very beginning of the set, it is golden). It was a snake. So it is necessary to repeat to the end.
  • The snake can be closed in a ring. To do this, the last fragment of the weave, clinging to the beginning of the baubles. That is, we string 3 gold beads, pass the needle through the 4th (if we count from the very beginning of the weaving) bead (gold), string 2 more blue and pass as usual.
  • We string 3 gold beads, pass to the very first gold bead and finish the baubles with a knot that we hide in a bead.
  • Thus, the mechanism of weaving the baubles turned out to be quite simple.
