Free Bead Embroidery Tutorials (8/29/2014)
Here are some great Bead Embroidery patterns, tutorials and “how-tos”. Sorry I missed Wednesday’s post. We have so much web design work, it plumb went out of my head! In my “real life” I work at home with my husband doing web design, hosting, domains – most anything related to the Internet. I hate how work interferes with my beading – I’m sure you do, too.

Have you ever looked at an amazing piece of bead embroidery and wondered what techniques the artist used to make it? Chances are, it was made using a combination of these two basic bead embroidery stitches: beaded backstitch and beaded fringe stitch. Once you master these two basic bead embroidery stitching techniques, you’ll open a whole new world of possibilities for making beaded jewelry and beaded embellishments!

Anyone who is familiar with my work will know how much I love colour and texture. This latest piece combines forged metal shapes with wirewrapping, in order to achieve a rich tapestry of colour, form and texture. It’s surprising how much sterling silver wire goes into making a piece like this! Just as well I bit the bullet and bought a big reel of it!

A couple of members of the Bead Journal Project have recently commented, asking how to improve their skill at sewing beads in a circle. The master at this technique is Amy Clarke Moore, former editor of Spin Off magazine and co-author with me of Beaded Embellishment. Here is one of her pieces.

Since cabochons come in such a wide variety of materials, sizes, and shapes, it helps to know what beading technique works best for which cabochon when you want to use it to create a piece of beaded jewelry. There are lots of options for each type of bezel, and each type of cabochon, depending on what you want to do with it!

Lately my muse has been following handwork with a needle and thread and some beads. I made some cabochons from polymer that I blogged about here. I decided to use one of the chalked cabochons to make a bead embroidered piece.
