3D Bead Patterns (10/5/2015)

2015 October 5

I love little 3D beaded projects. It’s fun to make something that is not jewelry occasionally. Inanimate objects are fun, but I really like animals. When you are done making them, you can play with them!

Just finished drawing the tutorial for a Beaded 3D pear charm, I used four different colour of green glass seed beads, adopting the Right Angle Weave.

Some of my little projects. I have been doing bead weaving for the past 3 years on and off. I find it hard to find patterns that do not include using 3mm bicones as my hands are not very good and I find it hard to use them, so I always try to find patterns using 4mm and bigger. I would love to find patterns of more interesting and more recent characters.

Needless to say I’m rubbish at coming up with design names… The pattern was made over a year ago, but I never got round to taking pictures… The lovely geometric beadwork of Kate McKinnon and Jean Power made me want to try it out for myself and this design was the result.

During the few months that I did attempt to create something with them, I became obsessed with beaded beads, and spent many a happy hour tying myself up in knots. I did manage to create one design for a simple bead though, so I thought I’d share it with you today.

Beading For The Very Beginners: Bull Fri, 21 Aug 2015 06:06:00 -0700

For making a bull we will use the technique of three-dimensional beading. The main idea of three-dimensional beading is that each row in the beadwork consists of two tiers which are situated one above the other. So, at first we should make the upper tier of the 1st row, then make the lower tier of the 1st row, after that make the the upper tier of the 2nd row, next make the lower tier of the 2nd row and so on.

I enjoy working with seed beads and take my inspiration from animals and nature. While I enjoyed doing 2 dimensional beadwork, I really wanted to do 3-dimensional sculptures. It took a lot of trial and error, but I finally mastered it.

Share and Enjoy
