Herringbone Bead Patterns (10/23/2015)

2015 October 23

Herringbone, also known as Ndebele Stitch, is another stitch that looks almost completely different in it’s different techniques. Flat display the classic herringbone patterns, while tubular is great for necklaces and ropes.

This tubular herringbone rope is very simple and beads up quickly. I used this bead woven rope in my Blue Victorian Pendant Necklace and absolutely love the way it feels!  All photos are shown with blue beads but I have indicated in the instructions on what beads to use.

Herringbone stitch can be started from either a Ladder stitch start as I demonstrate in this video or from a Herringbone start which I will leave for another video. Each Herringbone stitch involves picking up 2 beads, so your Ladder stitch foundation row needs to be an even number of beads.

Everyone loves a spiral. Spirals are the most common and alluring shapes in nature, found in everything from seashells to our own DNA. Even the shape and flow of human made spiral patterns are very organic, and we are instinctively drawn to them, as if they stir up some ancient memory of our natural heritage.

The herringbone stitch is great if you want to use a assortment of beads. You can easily transition into a new row too. If you are making a bracelet you can add dimension and shape just by using different beads for each row. Your bracelet will still lay flat too.

If you know how to weave with herringbone technique, this bracelet is a yummy piece of cake. And I don’t cover how to make the beading toggle here. It will be very long tutorial. Maybe I will do it later. The design is from the foreign book called ‘Rocca #7′. I got the scan from Picasa Web Album.
