There’s nothing quite like a beaded cuff to show off the marvel of tiny seed beads. With the right combination of colors and stitches, you can have a bold and beautiful bracelet that fits like fabric. The only thing that can make a beadwork cuff even better is the addition of some choice accent beads. This project combines the visual appeal of an ombre palette with the added texture and delight of disc bead accents. We’ll also explore an easy way to attach clasps to beadwork that can be applied to a variety of stitches.
Gwen wrote the (free) Strappy Strip herringbone weave pattern to give our visitors a beaded chain on which to hang the Rivoli Sunflower and other beaded pendants. With it I finally learned the Herringbone Weave, which I had long ignored. I really took to that stitch and made, with it, many pretty and many ugly designs. These include an early version of the Hour Glassy Beaded Bead and the Ionic Cube shown below.

I love herringbone stitch, and the textures in twisted tubular herringbone stitch make some pretty fantastic beaded necklaces and bracelets. I love using this beadweaving stitch to make beaded ropes and straps for my bead-embroidered cabochon pendants, and lately I’ve been experimenting with adding a little bit of texture and color to my beaded herringbone ropes. Jazzing up your next tubular twisted herringbone rope is easier than you might think, and you can probably do it with the beads you already have in your stash!

I have been in a herringbone stitch mood. With my last two designs, I played around with this stitch to see what the stitch will allow you to do. I wondered if one could create a type of free form herringbone project like the free form peyote projects. I discovered that it is actually easier combining different sized beads with the herringbone stitch than with the peyote stitch. Your bead work does not warp as much with the herringbone stitch when you combine different sized beads.

I think tubular herringbone stitch would work better than tubular peyote. The nature of the stitch allows the tube to be more flexible, and if you work in twisted tubular herringbone, achieving the stripy pattern is simple. What I came up with is a small candy cane .

Do you love herringbone stitch as much as I do? Really, there’s so much you can do with it — whether you want to make a beaded bezel for a crystal bead, a beautiful twisted herringbone rope, or a piece of beaded jewelry with a distinctly African ethnic feel, herringbone stitch is my go-to bead-weaving technique for creating unique jewelry.
