Has anyone had enough of the two-hole beads? I haven’t. Here are some great patterns, some free – some pay, but all are gorgeous.

Today I want to show you the new tutorial – a herringbone bracelet with superduo beads and pyramid studs. The pattern is very easy and simple. I hope you enjoy it. The pyramid studs that I used have 2 holes and measure 10mm. I bought them at Michaels store. I searched online stores where you can also buy them and I found two Etsy stores…

I’ve been checking out Fusion Beads’ 30-Day Bead Challenge, which I mentioned in my blog from last week. This Friday’s challenge is to “Double up and design with fun and funky two-hole beads.” All these new two-hole beads are great fun! Here are several two-hole bead projects from our archives if you need help choosing something to make.
Today I have collected a variety of bead weaving projects. None of them are too hard and shouldn’t take too long. Beadwoven rings, bracelets and necklaces – you are sure to find something fun to do while we still have some summer days to relax and enjoy!

I’m going to try a little tutorial, so easy to make, rings with Superduo or Twin beads and a filigree setting like mine. It’s easy to make, not my idea, so sorry about. I think there’s not other tutorial to explain it.

I haven’t done any bead weaving for a while, so I thought it would be nice to try something simple just to get into the swing of things again. This is a tutorial on how to make a ring with a flower detail and like the title says, it is nice and easy!
Herringbone bead stitch creates a pattern where the beads lie at herringbone-like angles to one another. You can begin it using the traditional ladder stitch start, or the traditional start, which is more complicated, but blends into the rest of the pattern better. Herringbone stitch is also know as “Ndebele stitch,” after the African tribe who specialize in it. Usually Herringbone stitch is flat, which Ndebele is tubular.

Herringbone Stitch (aka Ndebele Stitch) is ideal for making shapes because it lends itself well to increases and decreases. Following from the previous article on normal flat Herringbone Stitch, here we will look at 2 ways of how to increase in Herringbone Stitch.There are a few ways on how to increase in Herringbone Stitch. Here, I will deal with 2 common ways. But before I get there, just let me introduce a term “paired-column” to help make the explanation easier.

A couple weeks ago, a Beading Daily reader suggested that I show how to do a no-ladder stitch herringbone stitch starts. Why love a no-ladder stitch start? Well, when you begin herringbone stitch this way, you have little to no distortion in your subsequent stitches, so that beautiful chevron pattern that the beads make emerges beautifully. With a ladder-stitched start, no matter what your tension, you’re going to have some pattern distortion.
I have fallen madly in love with Kumihimo. I have to wonder why I did not try it earlier? I love making bead woven pendants, but now I can “display” them so much better on a kumihimo rope instead of a plain chain. So if you have been intimidated by kumihimo, give it a try!

This light and delicate kumihimo bracelet was made with yellow-green and amber colored tiny round seed beads. Size 8/0 beads braided on cream-colored 8 warps of #18 S-Lon cord created a kumihimo bracelet that’s ¼ inch thick. Sized for a 7-inch wrist, I used around 40 beads per warp (20 of each color). This resulted in 4 bobbins of yellow-green and 4 bobbins of amber. The colors were placed in the kumihimo disk in an alternating pattern around the disk.

Doing kumihimo with beads is totally addicting. If you’re thinking about learning how to do beaded kumihimo, you should know that you will fall head over heels for this easy Japanese braiding technique. You’ll be buying up size 6 seed beads by the kilo. You’ll start dreaming about end caps and cones for finishing your kumihimo braids. And you’ll be thinking about ways to stitch up fancy beaded sliders and accents for these quick and easy beaded ropes that are a great alternative to bead crochet.
