Free Netting Bead Patterns (11/21/2014)

2014 November 21

Today I’ve rounded up some great netting tutorials. It’s a great stitch to have in your arsenal as it makes more light and airy pieces using a minimal amount of beads. It’s great for including other types, shapes and sizes of beads into your seed bead work. I think I’m going to have to play with the Netted Crystals Bracelet this weekend.

I don’t actually know the name of this pattern and I have no idea where I found it either. I can’t find it on LiriGal’s site or blog so I must have found it on Pinterest. I haven’t seen a photo of what it’s supposed to look like so yesterday decided to give it a try and see what I’d get. Luckily it does say to use 11/0 seed beads and 4mm fire polished beads.

Circular Netting Stitch is a beading technique that when finished looks like a flower or a star. It is easy to understand as you only have to weave in one direction, clockwise or counter-clockwise as you work your rounds. Each round consists of beads and in order to achieve the arches you need to do an increase netting stitch.  Learning the basic will help you explore many ways how you can use the netting stitch.

If you love to incorporate shaped seed beads and other small accent beads into your work, nothing beats pearl netting for satisfying a craving for rounds. This variation of tubular netting – which is really a spin-off of tubular peyote – works with just about any round bead you can think of, so long as it has holes suitable for the weave. Druks, firepolish, gemstone rounds, and pearls are all gorgeous when netted.

For me, there are few chord patterns that turn out as stunning as a netted pattern.  This is not a new pattern in any sense of the word.  There are many tutorials already available.  So why do another.  Simple.  It took me an hour to determine for a 4mm Swarovski bicone what beads create the best net.  So here is what I decided, and the outcome.  This can make a beautiful necklace or bracelet.

Now, here’s another beading technique that I think would be good for beginners to learn. You can do so many designs with the technique and playing with the materials you can create elegant beaded jewelries. Based on the video tutorial from Julie Bean of Beadaholique I decided to make a diagram because some find it easier to follow with written instructions and images. A point to remember, since this is a 3-bead tubular netting you should have your number of base beads divisible by 4.

Make a Beaded Necklace Thu, 02 May 2013 06:32:34 -0700

This beaded necklace looks intricate, but it is extremely easy to make. Although it looks luxe, the necklace is also inexpensive to make, since all you need are seed beads, thread and a beading needle. It is beaded using a simple netting stitch, which is common in Ukrainian and Russian beading. If you’re new to netting, this is a good project to get you started. Get your supplies together and let’s make jewelry!
