DIY Bead Necklace
In order to make a gentle and spectacular five-strand braid-braid, we need the following materials:
- Czech beads No. 10 of two flowers
- 0, 2 mm thick fishing line
- Two jewelery trailer
- Two pins with eyelets
- Two ringlets
- Pliers round
We take ten pieces of fishing line of 70 centimeters each, we string beads on each piece so that on each side there is a tail of 10 centimeters.
The first and last bead in each segment must be beaded two or three times so that the beads do not move along the fishing line and fall off.
We collect all 10 segments of the future necklace together and tie the tails into a knot.
We promote the knot as close as possible to the beads.
Tighten the knot.
Then once again tighten the tails of the necklace of beads in a knot, tying them together again.
Cut off the excess ends of the line with scissors
And we burn them with a lighter.
Open the loop pin or pin, we hook the common fishing line.
With the help of pliers close the ring.
This is what should happen.
Put on the pin. Optionally, you can use glue.
Bend the pin at a right angle. Bending should be done as close as possible to the trailer necklace of beads.
Then with the help of the round-nose pliers we make a loop.
The first loop of a bead necklace is ready with your own hands.
We now turn to weaving a necklace of beads. For convenience, we fasten with adhesive tape a necklace to the working surface. We divide all the beaded threads into five strands.Each strand consists of two strands.
In order not to stray in the braiding of the necklace from the pigtail, it is better not to count the strands.
We work according to this scheme: first we take the leftmost strand, we carry it outundernext thread
and then we spend it on the next thread.
Now we take the rightmost strand and draw it first.undernext thread
and thenabovenext one.
According to such a beadwork scheme weave a necklace to the end. The resulting pigtail can be left free, and you can tighten and make tight.
At the very end, we remove the locking beads and remove the extra beads so that all the beaded threads are of equal length.
When all the tails are the same length, the last beads go through the line two or three times so that the beads do not fall off the line.
Then we tie tails necklace of beads in a knot.
Then we do everything the same way as at the very beginning. Then insert the end into the resulting loops, and a fastener into it.
