Many Native American and other heritages are rich with fine woven beadwork. This tutorial teaches a stitch called Brickstitch, which can be used to make everything from these earrings to more elaborate shapes. Start by practicing these instructions, and soon you’ll be able to make so many beautiful beaded items.

If you’re like me, beaded beads look really intricate and beautiful, but I can never figure out how to make them from just looking at the finished product. In my internet wanderings, I stumbled upon this website that has some free tutorials for some beautiful beaded beads. My personal favorite is the O Pendant, which I think could make neat earrings as well if you used smaller beads.

I like these Seed Bead Weave Earrings. They remind me of Indian jewelry that is popular at Indian Powwow Festivals, and in little stores in the mountains of North Carolina. This tutorial uses bead weaving and stitching to create a beautiful pair of earrings using seed beads.

Many of you have asked me how to make these beads so I’ve decided to make a free tutorial to show you how! These have a finished size of 8mm and while they are a little fiddly, they’re great fun to do. Just a few tips before we start…if this is your first time at making beaded beads you might find it easier to use a different colour for each row, as I have done, so that you can easily see which beads are on which row…

I thought that this free form peyote necklace would be a fun one to introduce during this month when we’re celebrating gemstones and pearls here at Beading Arts. The seed bead work is the perfect frame for your gemstone beads, especially if you mix them up into a sort of “bead soup” like this example. I had a few of these and a few of those, and somehow they all ended up working together well in this piece.
