Free Bead Stitch Patterns: Beading Q and A (11/14/2011)
Can you help me make French beaded flowers?
I let someone borrow my books, now I’ve got no patterns… If you could be kind enough to share some instructions with me it would be very appreciated. If you’ve never heard of them before, they are tiny beads thread on a wire and twisted up into the design of flowers.
Here are some sites that will help you.
Also, check your local library. You may be able to find some of the books you had lent out, or you can search for them on half.com and replace them.

If anyone can gave me a link or instructions with pictures on how those are made, I would greatly appreciate it. I’ve taken up beadwork as a hobby and I love it. On the other hand I don’t find the About or eHow sites helpful. Thank you!!!!
Cheyenne (Brick) Stitch, and Comanche (Brick) Stitch:
This is the old style Cheyenne (Brick) Stitch. The one above is a modern day adaption of the old style. It’s easier but, I don’t use it because the finished work is flimsy. Some will curl up from the sides (like the diamond shapes.
I just find that beadwork done in the old Style is firmly woven and always stays flat.

Does anyone know any Seed Beading books that shows and describes all stitches step by step?
I want a book that shows and describes peyote, brick and other stitches etc. in Beading and Jewelry making.
Two of my favorite books go into great detail of a variety of stitches, have great illustrations and lots of ideas for each stitch:
