1. Course Introduction: Hey, guys, welcome to the course. My name's Greta, a freelance jewelry designer. I'm here to teach you how to make be teeth jewelry at the beginning, off the course. How introduced some popular types of these tools and materials than our demonstrate a range of basic beating techniques that we will make it easy for you to get started. There are three types of beaded jewelry you have learned in this course. In the beat and wire section, you learn how to work with jewelry, wires, metal frames, chins and findings to create these beautiful jewelry pieces. During the bead strings section, I will show how to string bees with different stream. With euros, you'll be able to make some bits, strain bracelets and floating bead necklaces in the beat. Leaving section. I'll guide you through the process of how to make beaded jewelry with basic reading, reading stitches. At the end of the course, you'll be able to use the fundamental techniques to design and create your own jewelry. I will be adding more projects and listens to keep you updated. Thank you so much for joining me. Let's start our jewelry making journey 2. Tools and Materials: Beading Mat, Beads and Frames: bt Matt A. Beating Matt is a nice surface for designing and making these jewelries. The most commonly used beating Mads have nap on the surface, so they prevent bees rolling around and hold BZ in place. You could also use other fabric as a beating Matt for cheaper price, like a piece of fleece I'm using right now. Bees. He's coming so many different types. I'll give a brief introduction about some popular pees on the market. First, let's talk about glass bees, one of the most commonly used. The glass bees are synthetic crystal bees, usually made of leading glass Swarovski crystal bees, well known for their highest standards of quality. But they are more expensive than most of the other crystal bees on the market. If you are a beginner with low budget, you can get affordable. Column mixed crystal bees that come in one package so you have many colors to practice without paying too much popular shapes of crystal beads. The five groups of bees on the second row are four millimeter by conquest of bees. The bike home shape has kind of edgy Luke. They go really well with round bees because of the shape, contrast you're around and tear job crystal bees. Most of crystal bees have multiple facets, which make them more sparkly. Well, there are some crystal. Bees are not visited. The surfaces are just smooth drew styles. When choosing bees, we need to check about drew styles to match with our designs. Let's take to your job bees, for example. These bees are drilled from top to bottom, called vertical jeweled. These are George horizontally through the top off the beat called Top Guild. If you put them on one string, the bee's gonna lay in different ways. Then let's talk about finishes of crystal bees, which can change or you hans the bees. Appearance. I'll cover three pope of the finishes of crystal bees. 1st 1 is transparent. These three groups of by conquest of bees in different colors with the same finish. Transparent finish. It means light can pass through the bees. Their colors sometimes look a bit different, depending on the colors of backgrounds and lighting conditions. I put these crystal bees on the piece of a white T shirt, paper and my skin. The others still stay on the grief fabric. You can see the difference the color off. The bees on white tissue paper look lighter, and the ones on the grief fabric look a bit darker. 2nd 1 is metallic. It means there's a metal like coating on the beads surface. These are opaque crystal bees with a metallic coating finish, which gives the bees a look off metal. The 1st 1 is color. Maybe A B stands for Aurora borealis Effect, which is a special coating on the part of crystal bees. To create a Ringo like appearance, we're shop online. You'll see all the information you need on the least things. Let's taken crystal beads listing on amazon dot com, for example, we can see the shape, size, quantity in color when the color name full by letters A. B. It means the bees have these Ringo like coating. I've got these bees in my hand. This finish make the bees reflect many different colors and more sparkly. Let's see these four millimeter and three millimeter by Camby's in Crystal A B, which means transparent cover these crystal bees with a B coating. They are widely used in wedding jewelries to match with white or cream pros. The top grades crystal a B buy. Com Bees are always described as beautiful as diamonds, another type of glass bees widely used in beast. Jewelries are glass pose. They are made to look like a real pros, but more uniforms in colors and shapes cheaper than real pros. Gemstone bees, the beast made of semi precious gemstone, usually have some inclusions and vain ings inside. The colors are not even where you put the same gemstone bees together. But this is natural beauty. These are authentic, oval shaped freshwater pros. They're not top great pros. Every po has a slightly different shape. They don't look that consistent when you put them together. There are many bees made of a variety of other materials, such as metal wooed acrylic plastic clay. It's center up. What are space? Api's space, Api's are usually smaller in size and placed between bigger peas. They helped to create a more interesting pattern. Any beat can be used as a space of bead. Let's see some examples. If I put three white glass pros on the piece of beating wire to make a necklace, it's a very playing simple design. If I put three millimeter crystal a bebe icon, bees to separate the polls. The design looks a bit dressing now, placing gold metal bees between the white pearls. Then we added the color contrast to the design. If I use silver metal bees to space these black bees, the design gets some highlight with color contrast and more eye catching. What are CPIs the ass Moby's used in a variety of bees. Jewelries, round and cylinder Seabees are more commonly used. They can be used as space appease and be placed between larger bees. Oh, they can help to create beautiful beat leaving patterns. Let's see a beat leaving pattern with white pose. We can see clearly the threat bridge between the posts. If we add CB's between the pros, the pattern looks a bit more interesting, and the threat bridges are all covered by the Seabees. You can see the comparison sizes of cities are quite confusing. You always see the numbers like these side six size, eight size, 10 size, 11 size 15. Just need to remember the larger the number, the smaller the bead. Here I put full seat bees on one string from left to right. The outsize 15 size 11 size eight, side six size 11 is the most commonly used seed beat, sides said. 11 is about two millimeters. It can be a bit smaller or bigger, depending on which manufacturer or brand you choose. You can also search on Google for each manufacturers or brand size chart before purchase frames here. Awesome metal frames. They are very nice components we can add to be stool Aries. We'll use them soon in this course. 3. Tools and Materials: Jewelry Wire: wires for jewelry making. There are so many types of jewelry, wire and the wire brands on the market. I'll talk about full things. We need to concede the before purchasing jewelry, wire the arm metal types. Wire thick knees, Hockney's and shape Some popular metal types. Silver plated wire and gold plated the wire are very popular for beginners to practice, they have the real silver or go through a year plated on base metal like brass or copper. But the plated lay year is very thin, so eventually the plating is going toe wear off, but they are quite affordable. Nice for making costume jewelries. You may see the words tarnish resistant on the packages. It means the wire have got special permanent coating. To protect the color. However, the coatings made pube off. If the wire get scratched, you can also get sold it sterling silver wire and gold wire. They are more expensive, especially solely the gold wire, many times more expensive than gold plated wire. But you don't have to worry about the layers wearing off. They are also silver field wire and goat. Feel the wire on the markets. They have a much thicker layer of silver or gold on outside of the base metal. And this lady here, it's supposed to lost a lifetime. We've proper care for the price. They are higher than plated wires and lower than the sole lead silver or gold wires. There are also other types of mental wire on the market, like aluminum wire, stainless steel wire, etcetera. Why are thick knees Jewelry wire is measured in cages or millimeters. The higher the gauge number, the theme that the wire So the 18 gauge wire is obviously thicker than the 24 gauge wire. Now we can easily see both of the gauge number and the millimeters information on shopping websites or on the packages. Hartness. There are three types of wire. Hartness First is dead. Soft is quite easy to manipulate. That's off the wire. Most of the wire we get from craft stores is that solved. It is most commonly used to make dedicate wire jewelries with small bees and stones. It doesn't hold its shape when go with really heavy bees or stones. If there's no hotness information on the package, usually is that solved. I'm going to use debts off the wire in this course second is half hard. It's harder than debts off the wire. If you want your jewelries to be more long lasting, or go with heavy piece or gemstones, then you can choose half hardwire. Next is full heart. Full hardwire is the hardest wire you can get. You need proper twos. Toe work. We've not recommend for this course shape. The most commonly used wire shape for jewelry making is round, which means the cross section is round. You can also get half round square that or other variations to create different textures for your work. We are going to use round wire in this course. 4. Tools and Materials: Jewelry Pliers: Let's look at the pliers we can use to make bees and wire jewelries. These are rounding those pliers. Both of the rounded draws are you long type of cone shape we can use. Run those pliers to make wire loops, co use and curved Benz. Let's make a wire loop together. Grab a piece of wire fist decided the size of the group. The drawers are graduated, so we make tiny loops on their tapered ends and make big loops at the white part of the cone. Put the wire between the jaws. Make sure the wire is perpendicular to the drawers and nothing sticking out. Then room. I re stay away from me when I cannot go anymore. Reposition the pliers and rollicking and to the end meets the wire. Then the loop is totally closed. Now the loop is on one side of the wire. We need to send to the group, grab the wire like these, bend it and push with my fingers. Then we've got a scented loop. This is called eye pain. You learn how to use. I pains to make jewelries later in this course, the next arch in those pliers, The drawers are pointing at the end so it can fit into a tiny place. This surface on inside of the drawers. It's smooth and flat. We use thumb to grip wires, make bins open and closed loops. These are flush Qatar's. We used them to cut wires, and the narrow tip can get into tiny corners. When we cut a piece of wire, the back side of the cutters will give a flash cut. Let's have a look. I'll cut this piece of wire into two pieces. Put the wire in the meat off the blade. Make sure the wire is perpendicular to the blade, always cut down into the mat. Otherwise, of the little ends are flying everywhere is Beta Tau, where my protections when working with wires. As you can see, this edge is nice and flat, but the other piece has got appointed edge. Another thing out, like to mation, is the capacity of Flash Qatar's. Before you buy a pair of Flash Carter's, please check their capacity in the products information I bought my Flash Carter's online. Here is the products information on the website. It tells you what types of wire and the maximum sides off wire. You can work. We've if you use flush Qatar's to cut anything heavier than their capacity than the blaze could get damaged around those pliers. Chin those pliers and flash Qatar's essential tools for making bees and the wire jewelries . These are my long drop liars. As you can see, there's a layer of nylon on the drawers. One of the main things we use. Thes war is straightening out. Seen. A wire wire might be bent out of shape from the package. Grab the wire with Milo. Draw pliers. Pull the wire through the drawers several times, then we'll get smooth and street wire toe work. We've. If we need to redo a work, we'll have to straighten out the wire as much as we can with our hands. Then pull the wire through the drawers. The street. Now it's kinks. This process weakens your wire a little bit, especially when you using hotwire with color coating on it. You'll see the coating. Pupil. Let's look at the flat nose pliers. See the jaws both of the inside and outside us move flat and in the rectangular shape. Flat nose pliers have similar functions, like chin, those pliers they can't. Great wire. Firmly as you can see, a lot of a surface area compared with chin nose pliers. These happen nose pliers. They're just like chin. Those pliers. We've been two draws. Some people prefer these over the normal chain. Those pliers. If you love your chinos players, then you don't have to buy a pair of been nose pliers. Another tool here is needle file. We use them to smooth, pointy end of wire. If any wire end on the jewelry may scratch all the skin, then we can use needle file to smooth the edge. 5. Tools and Materials: Findings and Chain: Let's see some findings for jewelry making. These are jump rings. They're used for connecting different components. Together, we can use pliers to open and close jump rings because each jump ring has a small split become indifferent diameters because they are made of jewelry wires, so they have different thicknesses and metal types. Here are 20 gauge yellow, gold plated, silver plated, and the roads go to play deep jump rings. Some jump rings are so did closed. We call them close to jump rings. There's no slit, and we cannot open them. We're going to use both of normal jump rings and closed the jump rings for this course. These are clasps. We see them a lot on necklaces and bracelets. There's a variety of clasps on the market. Our introduce three popular types. These are loves to clasps. They usually go. We've lightweight jewelry. PC's Here is a pair of magnetic clasp. It's so easy to open and close it. But it's not that secure. It usually goes. We've inexpensive lightweight jewelry PC's. This is a pair of Togo class. You can see them on some heavier jewelry PCs because the weight of heavier jewelry keeps the bar in place. These are some year wires the I used to fasten that year in pot, and they go in through your lobe. Here are some head pins. These are flathead pins. These are called forehead pins. We use them to create beat links. We're going to use bullhead pins to make a pro class to necklace in this course cable chins . These are some loose cable chains for jewelry making. We can buy them in bulk. Cable chin is made up of same sized loops. We can easily attach beat links, jump rings, clasps or other components on those loops. 6. Make Earrings with Jump Rings and Metal Frames: in this lesson, we'll learn how to use jump rings, year wires and metal frames to make this pair of year rings with euros and tools needed. I've got some rose, gold plated jump rings to open and close jump rings. We can choose any two sets of pliers from bench nose pliers, chin those pliers or flat nose pliers. I'll be using two pairs of chin those pliers in this lesson. These are some rose, gold plated hexagon shape, mental frames, two large and four small and the payer off rose. Gold plated year wires. Take one pair of chin those pliers to group the jumping on one side with the split facing up group. The other side of the jump ring was the other players. I twisted the two sides in opposite directions to open the jump ring. As you can see, we didn't change the shape. It's still perfect round. Keep the jump, Oring gripped by one players, then add a bigger frame and a small frame through the jump ring group. That jump ring was the other players twists the two sides back together to the ends meet. Now the jump ring is completely closed, so we've connected these two frames together. Same way to open another jump Oring slide on the small frame of the link we just made been at another small frame. Close the jump ring. We've got the body part of this hearing. Next, open another jump ring. It's like the small frame off the body parts and what year wire on the jump ring. Close the jump ring. We may have to do it several times to make sure the jump a ring is totally closed. So we've finished the first half hearing. Repeat the same steps to make the body part for the other earring. I've got it here, but this time slight the big frame off the body part and the other year wire on the jump pre, then close it. That's the other half hearing. So we've finished these simple and stylish earrings. There's a common mistake we should avoid when using jump rings when we open the jump ring. Do not pull it apart as this will change the shape of the jump ring. Then we are not able to close the jump Oring completely. You see, it will always have a small gap there. The components connected to this jump ring will easily slide off 7. Bead and Wire: Make Bead Link with Open Loops: in this lesson, we are going to learn how to make a bid link materials and tools needed. We're going to use brown tunnels, pliers, chin, those pliers, wash Carter's, my loan drop pliers and 22 gauge wire. The beat I'm using for this listen is 18 millimeter wide glass pearl. We also need a ruler. Once you get really experienced, you'll be able to make this beadling without a ruler to make sure we get the same size of loops. We can make marks on around those pliers we've permanent markup in, or just a normal pen to mark across both of the draws. I need small loops for this project, so the marks should be closed to the pointy ends of the draws. So I will mark about here just like that. Then grab my loan, Joe. Pliers to ST. Now it's the wire. Who? The wife through the jewels several times. So we will get street wire toe work. We've take flash contest to cut off a piece of wire about four centimeters long. Give a flush cut before we make a loop. At this end, a flat end is easy to be gripped by round nose pliers. Use the ruler to get the exact men is 44 millimeters Well, Macon. I pin fist. Put the wire in line with the marks between the drawers. Make sure there's nothing sticking out on the wire is perpendicular to the drawers. Then room I raced away from me, and two, I cannot go anymore. Reposition the players and role again and to the end, Miss the wire. We've got to move. Put the tape of round those players in the loop, bend it and push with my fingers So the loop aids centered. We've made an IPE in the measure the length of the tail. That's 37 millimeters original Length of these wire was 44 millimeters, so seven millimeters wire was used to make this loop. Put the pro on this eye pain. Measure the tail with the ruler. We need the civil millimeters to make the other loop, but give about one millimetre extra. So leave eight millimeter wire August end and cut off the excess again. Once you get really experienced, you'll be able to judge where to cut without a ruler. Let's make the other loop. I want both of the loops face the same direction. Turn the loop to get the side of the loop facing me. Then group the ends of the wire you light with the MOX room. I raced away from me, reposition the plier rule again to finish the loop, then sent to the loop. The loop was opened a little bit. There I can go back with a round nose pliers to roll. It closed recent to the loop again, now is totally closed and scented. We can group the two loops with chin nose pliers and my long jaw pliers to adjust the directions of the loops and make them street. So we've made a pro link. There are two open loops on each side of this. Be think so. Later we can attach chins or other components to the loops. 8. Bead and Wire: Make a Simple Necklace with Pearl Link: Now let's learn how to make a simple necklace was the polling we just made. We need a small size jump, a ring, a medium sized jump ring, a lobster clasp and some loose silver plated cable chin. The size of each over loop on the chin is about one point of five millimeters. By two millimeters. I need 40 centimeters chin, so this is 30 centimeters. Need another 10 centimeters cut off here with Flash Carter's Take it off from the broken loop. Now we need to cut this chin into. To have we can place a piece of wire through the loops on each end of the chin, then find a loop in the center of the chin. So this loop cut this loop. I'll take a pair of pliers to take off this loop, so we've got two pieces of 20 centimeters. Chain to connect to the chin was the paroling Take chin. Those pliers to twist open one loop, just like jump rings. Never pull it out of shape. Always twist open slut in one piece of chin, then twisted to close the boob just to repeat the same steps with the other loop to connect the second half chin to finish the Nicholas open the small jump ring slut in one end of the necklace in the clasp. Close the jump ring, then opened the medium sized tampering so that in the other end of the necklace clothes the's jump ring. So we've finished the necklace. You can make beat links with a different type of bees to make simple necklaces like this. 9. Bead and Wire: Make Earrings with Pearl Links and Frames: in this lesson will make this pair of earrings have made to pollings. We've eight millimeter pink glass pros and 22 gauge gold plated wire. We'll need a pair of year wires to jump rings and two square frames. All of thumb are gold plated. I'm using flat nose pliers and chin nose pliers to open the jump a ring. Then put a pro link a frame and one year wire in this jump ring, then close it. We've made 1/2 hearing repeats the same steps to make the other half earring, so we've finished. It's very easy to use jump rings to connect all different components together. To make jewelries, we can buy finished components like these metal frames from the market. We also can make our own jewelry components like beat links with our favorite bees and put them on earrings, necklaces or bracelets. 10. Bead and Wire: Pearl Cluster Necklace with Head Pins: in this lesson, we are going to learn how to make this pro class to necklace. The pro links don't always stay at the same place, but it's nice to have that movement. We need seven oval shape freshwater pros and some loose silver plated cable chin. The clasp, a small size jump ring to medium sized jump rings and seven bullhead pins. You can also use other head pins or I pins. Instead. Fist will make a polling with hip. In this time, we don't need a rumor. Put one pro on ahead pain. I'll use the mocks on running those pliers. To make a loop, rip the wire above the Po in line with the MOX. Keep the wire perpendicular to the pliers just to leave a bit of a room to bend the wire, then bent to about 90 degrees. Grab the wire just about the bend. You lie with the MOX. Take the wire tail up and over the top. Pull it down, reposition the pliers and pull it back to finish the group. Then take flush cutters to trim off the excess wire tail just recent to the loop a little bit with a round nose pliers. So we've got a pro link. Make another six pro links. I finished all of them. Or just get the chin and lay out my design for the class dependent to see how long the chin I need easily out all the pro links. That's about 5 to 8 millimeters space between every two pro links. I'll leave a bit of extra chin just in case. Then take chin those pliers toe open the loop on one pro link and slightly one end of the chin, then close the loop. Next, just attach other pro links one by one on the chin. We can leave the exact same space between every two pro links by counting how many loops on the chin we should escape. It's okay to have inconsistent spaces like this necklace we're making now, so I will just add the other pro links without counting the loops. Just leave about 5 to 8 millimeters space from one another. I'm going to add the other pro links and skip these parts. I've added all the pro links on the chin. There's a bit exist, chin. So just a treatment. The excess off with Flash Qatar's Open the medium sized jump ring. Put the finished part in it, then close it. We've finished the pendant parts. Now let's get the chin to finish Necklace our cut off about 40 centimeters chain. Put these chin through the jump ring on independent, attach a medium size jump ring on one end of the chin and use the small jumping to connect to the clasp and the other end of the chin. So we've finished this pro class to Nicholas. 11. Bead and Wire: How to Make Wire Wrapped Bead Link: in this lesson, we're going to learn how to make a wire wrapped beat link. Compare with the other beat links we've made. This one has to wire wrapped loops instead of the open loops. I will use 24 gauge silver plate to the wire at the 16 millimeter beads to make the link I've mocked all might. Run those players. Get a piece of 10 centimeters 24 gauge wire. Grab the wire with running those pliers. Live about four centimeters Wire from the end to make the first wire wrapped loop. The wire should be perpendicular to the pliers. Spends the wire to 90 degree angle. Grab the wire right team Mokoena with routing those pliers in light was the marks. Take the wire tail up and over the top. Pull it down and to you we cannot pull it anymore. Then take it off from the top drawer and move it to the bottom jaw. Make sure it's in line with the marks. Then put a wire tail back to 90 degree angle, so we've got to loop. Take chin those pliers to hold the loop firmly. Make sure the long piece of wire is perpendicular to the players. Then use fingers or another pair of chin, those players to grab the end of the wire tail and the wrapped around the long wire about three times. Make sure the coils seat tied to one another, then cut off the excess of wire with the flash card is facing down To get the flash cots, take chin those players to talking the wire tip. We've got a wire wrapped loop. There are three coils here. You can make more coils or just to call, use for wire wrapped loop slight on the beat. I'm going to make the other wire wrapped loop on this side. I want the other loop perpendicular to the 1st 1 so keep the fist loop facing me. Grab the wire. We've rounding those pliers here. We need to leave the same distance above the bead to do the three call use. So just estimate the amount of space between the beat and the loop on this side Been the wire to 90 degree angle. Grab the wire about the bend. Eli. It was the MOX just to repeat the same steps. Take the wire tail up and over the top pull it down as far as they can go, then move it to the bottom jaw. Make sure it's in line with the marks. Then put a wire tail back to 90 degree angle. Take chin those pliers to hold the loop firmly. Use fingers or another pair of chinos players to rap three times, just like the other side. Then cut off the excess wire. Take chin those pliers to talking the wire tip so we've got a wire wrapped beat link. You can use different bees to make wire wrapped, beat links or put several pees on one link. We've learned how to make beat links. We've simple open moves and wire wrapped loops. It takes this time and let's wire to make beat links with open loops, and it's easy to attach components to them. Easy to remove or change components from them because we can open and close the loops like jump rings. But the components might sleep whole from the loops, so they are not that secure. If we use seen the wire or soft wire, why wrapped loops? A more secure. Once we finish wire wrapped loops, they're not supposed to be open again. so we need to attach components before wrapping the coils. It takes small time in the more wire to make wire wrapped loops because the out quite secure. We can use Sina wire and self the wire to make them, and the components are not going to sleep off. 12. Bead and Wire: Wire Wrapped Bracelet: in this lesson, I will show how to connect the wire wrapped bead links. Then let's make this bracelet, as I showed in the last lesson to make a wire wrapped beat link. First, make a loop on the piece of 10 centimeters. 24 gauge wire. We've running those pliers before wrapping coils. Put the finish the beat link in the loop, so slide it in from the short wire. Then we're going to wrap the wire tail around the long wire. Take chin. Those pliers brought the loop family just to leave this link. Here, use fingers or take another pair of chinos pliers to grab the wire. Tell you on the rap three times. Trim off the excess wire talking the end. We have chin those pliers. We've attached this beat linked to the wire wrapped loop. Then add a beat group the wire. We've round nose pliers. Leave the same amount of space above the bead to do the three coils. Bend the wire to 90 degree angle. Wrap the wire right in the corner. In line was the marks. Take the wire tail up and around. Keep the other loop of this Beadling facing me so this loop will be perpendicular to the other loop, then move to the bottom. Draw in line with the marks. Who? The wire tail back to 90 degree angle. If we have finished another beadling slight the beat link in the loop and finish the three coils. Always remember to put the link in the loop before wrapping the coils. Trim off the excess wire, talking the wire tape with chin. Those pliers. We've got three beat links connected together. Repeat the same steps to connect morbid links, and you get the desired to then for the bracelet house. Keep these pots. I've got the right length for my wrist. A jump hearing was attached to the Beat Ling. At this end of the bracelet, a clasp was attached to the beat link from the other end again. Always remember to slight component in the loop before wrapping coils. So we have finished this bracelet 13. Bead Stringing: Stringing Materials: in this section, we're going to learn how to make beats string jewelries. Let's see some stringing What? Your rules. These are some popular threes course and the beating wires for making beef strain jewelries . I'll talk about the size first, becoming different sizes. You can see their diameters Information on the packages. There are two general rules for choosing which size of stringing material to use. FISA route is using larger diameter. String you material for heavy bees. Smaller diameter for lightweight bees. Second, the rule is make sure the diameter of string material is slightly smaller than the bees hose so it can go through the bees. Now let's look at these materials. This is nylon monofilament, which means a single strand of clear nylon fiber. This material is given different names from different Brand's or manufacturer's here. Other names so all of the's names refer to a single strand off clear Milo fiber. This material is really affordable. You can get it from some well known companies, or you can just to spend one or $2 to get these simple packs. Then let's see some stretch cord. This is a single strand of clear stretch cord another popular type of stretch cord is made up of several strands of stretchy material woven together. We usually use thes stretched cord to make Elastica bracelets. These are beating wires. Beading wire is made up of several strands of stainless steel wire woven together and coated with nylon. It's softer and more flexible than metal wires stronger than my long cord. It's supposed to be the most durable material for beats string. They come in different colors. Here. I have both gold and silver colors. The number off wire strands is marked on the package. The most trends. The beating wire, the more flexible it feels. But more strains are usually more expensive. 19 strands Beating wire is highly recommended by many experienced designers considering book flexibility and price. It works well for a variety of beef stream projects. So if you're not sure which beating wire to use as a beginner, maybe go for the 19 strands beating wire 14. Bead Stringing: Stringing Tools: then let's look at some tools we use for beats string. These are not cutters. They are like flush cutters. But I used for beats string materials. We can use them to flashcards, threat or cord Well, we can use a pair of Caesar's. We've seen blaze to cut thread or cord. We also need a pair of chin, those pliers and a pair of crimping pliers. How show how to use both of them to do crimping. These are beats stoppers before you start to put these all string, it's good to have a beat stopper on the other end of the stream material, so the bees are not going to slight off from the other end. Then let's see crimp bees and crim tubes. We use them to attach close to jump rings, clasps or other components to the jewelry PC's Well, we can use them as beat stoppers on the jewelries to keep bees in place. I would talk about their sizes later in this course, beating Nieto's Our introduced two types of beating Nieto's. These beating needles look like normal sewing NATO's but thinner and have smaller eyes. We used this type of NATO's to do beat, leaving projects. The other type of beating me. Those are big. I need those. Some people call them white. I need owes. Just open it and put the threat inside. I personally prefer big. I need those. It's easier to thread and weaken threat secret chord like stretch cord so we can use them to do both of beats during and beat leaving projects. I'll use big pine needles in this course. The big guy beating needles I'll be using in this course is about 2.1 inches as a manageable length I recommend for beginners. 15. Bead Stringing: Make a Bead Bracelet with Beading Wire: in this lesson, we'll learn how to string this bracelet with beating wire. I'll be using night in strength Super Color Beating wire. You can also use nylon court for this project. The bees amusing are two millimeter super color space of bees and six millimeter gemstone bees, a clasp, a closed jump ring and to crank tubes of cut off a piece of 30 centimeters beating wire. I only need 16 centimeters brace little and former wrist, but we need some extra beating wire to do, crimping threat all one crimp tube fooled by either the clasp or the close to jump ring. Let's go with the clasp. Then take the end of the beating wire threaded back through the crimp tube. Then move the cream tube to the clasp. Leave a small gap here so the clasps do can move around. In this loop. Use chin those players to squish it flats so the crimp tube will hold the beating wire firmly, and the class is trapped in the boob. Here, you can cut off the excess wire tail. Well, we can just leave it here and let some bees to cover. It is considered to be more secure to keep the wire tail rather than cut it off right after crimping, I'll begin to put some bees on the wire 1st 1 is a gemstone bead. Thread the wire tail through the bead. We need more bees to cover the wire tail. Let's begin to add more beads. I'll put one space a bead between every two gemstone bees. The threat. The wire tail through these bees. The wire tail is all covered by the bees. Then continue to add these To get the desired men, I would go to a good length. Former raced next. We need to trap that closed jump ring on the other end of the bracelet. Slept in a crimp tube, fooled by the closed jump ring. Take the wire tailback through the cream tube. Who? The wire tail, then threaded through a couple of these Who? The wire tail again. Leave a bit of a room so the jump ring can move around. In the small loop. Take chin those pliers to squish the cream tube flat. Trim off the excess wire so we've finished this bracelet. If you make it long enough for your neck, this could be a necklace so we've learned how to string bees with beading, wire or nylon cord. In this lesson, we can use cream pie's or cream tubes to get clasps and close to jump rings attached. When stream bees, we've beating wire on my long cord. We always use close to jump rings because there's no sleet on the ring and the beading wire on nylon cord will not sleep off. We were using chin nose pliers to screech the cream tubes flat, which is an easy and old school technique later in this course, will learn a different technique to do crimping. We've crimping pliers. 16. Bead Stringing: Make an Elastic Bracelet in Two Ways: in this lesson will make this elastic bracelet. I will show two ways to finish this bracelet. We need stretch court 0.5 millimeters fiqh, about 50 centimeters long, a beating nido and some bees. These are pink colored glass bees with silver coating inside. Put the BD needle on one end of the court and the beat Stolper on the other end, so the bees are not going to come off from this end. Then keep adding bees on the court through the needle. Do you get the Rutland? I was. Keep these pots. I've got enough bees on the cord. Take off the beat stopper and the beating Neither. The first way to finish the bracelet is to make three awful overhand lords. The first not should not be too tied cause we don't want the bees crinkle together. The second not should be quite tight, and the third not needs to be tighter. To secure the finish, have made three notes just to pull the cord to test. If the notes are secure enough, we can also add a dab of jewelry glue on the north's to make the finish more secure. Parts of the excess court leave a tiny bit of extra tail over the notes just in case, then took the north's inside a bead. We've finished the bracelet. If we use bees with small hos, there's no way to hide the notes. But it's understandable. People know there are notes on a elastic bracelet. Stretch court will break eventually if you wear them frequently. Once you see it phrase or you feel your bracelet is losing elasticity, then it's better to restoring them with new Stretch Court before it breaks. These bees have quite big hose, so I can show you another way to finish this bracelet. We need longer stretch court about 50 centimeters long after threat or the bees we need on the court. Take the needle to go through all the bees again. In this way, we are using to lay years of stretch court toe, hold the bees so the bracelet is going to last longer. We're almost there. Just take off the beat Storper. We don't need it anymore. Go through the rest of the bees, then just to pull the court to tighten up. We don't want a gap here. Looks fine. Now Take off the beating. Neither make two notes again. The first did not. Should not be too tight. The second not should be tighter. You see, the notes are only on the top chord to link them together. Greg. One chord to wrap around the other cord, then make another to tighten notes. Make sure the notes are secure enough, Then trim off the excess cord. Took the notes inside a bead. Again, we can apply. Some grew on the north. This is the second way to finish the bracelet. This can only work with bees that have large hose, so the normal side stretch court and NATO can go through all the bees twice. 17. Bead Stringing: Floating Bead Necklace with Beading Wire: in this lesson will make this floating beat Nicolas with beating wire. I'm going to use a crimp tal, or you can call them crimping pliers. I will show a different way to crimp with this tool in this lesson. The materials for this project are six millimeter round crystal bees in crystal AP cover and formula meat on white glass pros. A class and a close to jump ring cream puppies. 19 Strength Super color beating wire. The other piece of 50 centimeters beating wire. We've not cutters or flash cutters. Threat on a crew beat at one end of the wire, fooled by the class. Then take the end of the beading wire threaded back through the cream. Move the crimp to the clasp. Leave a bit of a room here. Now make sure the beating wires seeking next to each other, not one on top of the other. Then take the crank tour to do crimping. There are two notches on the tour. The back notch has a nip in it. The front march is a nice oval shape. We just need to follow two steps to crimp with this tour. First step. Use the back notch to grab the crimp beat. Squeeze it firmly. The crypt bead is squeezed flat, and there's a crease in the meadow to separate the two wires. Second step plays the crew bead up right in the front knowledge, then squeeze it firmly to foot the crank bead. So we've done. These are the two steps to crimp with a crimp tal. Compare with chin nose pliers. The crank tour can fold a krump beat in half, which makes the cramp bead and notice for and more polished, then used not cutters or flash cutters to trim off the excess wire. We don't want to leave the tail here because there are no bees going to cover it. I've cut a piece of straw to help me space out the bees evenly. It's about three centimeters long. Put it on the beating wire, then threat on the crank bead. Move it close to the stroll. Grab the crimp. Eat with the back knowledge of the quick Tour Norbit. Right next to the store. You can see the other end of the straw covered half of the clasp. Squeeze it family. We can take over the strong now. I didn't finish the second step. Place the crimp beads up right in the front, March two folded, so the crimp bead is fastened on the wire. Then threat. 01 pro. One crystal bead and another poll. Let them drop down the threat on the crimped bead. Let it stay right next to the pearl. Repeat the two steps to crimp it so the crystal and the pros are trapped by to crimp bees. We've finished the first you need here. The queen bees I like be the stoppers to secure the bees in place. Then let's do the second you need. Put the stroll back on the wire, followed by a crimp bead. Grab the Quran feed with the back notch movie it next to the store. The other end of the stool covered half off. The first you need, squeeze it family, then take off the stool and foot. The quick bead again threat on one pro. One crystal bead and another pro fooled by another. Crimp beads that the crew peed State right next to the pool. Repeat the two steps to crimp the bead. We have finished the second unit, then, just to continue adding more units to get the desired Lynn. I would go to good length for myself to finish the necklace. We put the stool back again, then threat on the crank bead and the jump ring. Take the wire tail back through the cream. Who? The wire. Move the cream next to the stool. The other end of the straw just covers half off the last you needs. Don't crank the bead. Take off the store and trim off the excess wire. So we've finished this floating beat Nicolas. Many designers make floating necklaces without a straw or anything like that. Once we get experienced, we can judge the space just to buy our eyes. 18. Bead Stringing: Size of Crimp Beads/Tubes: Let's talk about the sizes of crank bees and crimped tubes. The general rule is to make sure the diameter of the crimp, appease or tubes is large enough to allow our string materials to go through them twice so we can attach clasps and jump rings. But the diameter should not be too large if we use chin. Those pliers to cream, because they will look to wide, was switched that my chin nose pliers. If we want to use cream to no matter which brand of crypto, there will be products, information on the package or on their websites. That tells you the range of croup sizes you should use. The one I'm using in this course is beat a long standoff. Crypto, you didn't have to get the same one. I just use it as example. There's a chart on the package to tell us the sizes of crime peas or tubes that can go with this criminal. We do need to use the correct size of cream to go with this tour. So in the first step of crimping the back, no church can squeeze the cream properly and create a crease in the middle, so we can fold it in half for the second step, so please make sure the sizes of the queen bees or tubes you're going to buy can go with both of your stream materials and your crimped tool. Should we use Quinn peas or creamed tubes? It's more like a personal preference. Crimp tubes tend to be more secure because they have a larger area to hold the stream with euros. So many people prefer to use crimp tubes to connect clasps and jump rings. Well, groupies are shorter. Once we fought them in half with crank tour. They are really and noticeable, so I prefer to use crew peas as beef stoppers for making floating necklaces. 19. Bead Stringing: Two-Strand Floating Bead Necklace with Nylon Cord: in this lesson, we're going to learn how to make a floating beat Nicolas with clear my long cord. The transparent nylon cord sometimes is invisible, which can create an illusion that the bees are floating on the skin. The clear nylon cord I'll be using is pointed 25 millimeter in thickness. The bees for this project are six millimeter wide glass. Pros and formula meter around crystal bees increased or maybe color. Get a piece of nylon cord about 50 centimeters. Attach the clasp on one end of the court with a crimp tube and itchy nose pliers. Or we can use crimping pliers. Dream off the court tail threat on a crystal bead, move it down. Leave about 2.5 centimeters space to the crimp tube, then take the court to go through the crystal bead again in the same direction. Who the court. So the crystal is trapped in this loop. Now Aikens do move the Cristo to adjust its position. I'm happy with the space between the Christo and the cramp tube. Now about 2.5 centimeters for the court to close the loop. Give a little bit of tension, so the beat is locked in place, then threat on one pro and another crystal bead. Move them down. Take the court to go through the crystal bead again in the same direction. Pull the tail before close the loop. Move the crystal bead right next to the pool, then through the court tight so the Cristo is locked Here. We've finished the first you need of these, Nicolas. Unlike the beating wire, we don't have to use cream pie's or tubes. We think my long cord toe look, the bees in place was your police tight. It pretty much will stay that way. Let's make the sick of the unit threat on a crystal bead moving down. Take the court to go through the crystal bead again. Leave the same space from the first unit. About 2.5 centimeters. I just a judge it by my eyes. Then pull it tight. Give a bit of attention three on one pro and another crystal bead. Take the court to go through the crystal bead again before closed the loop. Position it right next to the pearl, then give a tight pool. We have finished the second unit just to repeat the same steps to make more units to reach the desired level. I've got enough you needs for the Nicholas. Then place a quick YouTube fooled by a closed the jump ring threaded back through the tube . Put the court to leave the same distance between the crimp eat and the last unit we can double check. It was the other side to make sure the space is about the same. Crimp the tube here, cut off the extra cord. We've got a single strand floating necklace. We can add more strands on this design. I've made another strand with only crystal bees on this cord. It's slightly shorter, so just simply add this strand on the same clasp and the close to jump ring. Put on a crimp tube through, went and then take these end to go through the same class. Take the court to go back through the tube. I will live about two centimeters between the tube and the first Cristo, then crimping flats. Trim off the excess court, put a crimp tube on the other end, then threaded through the same close to jump ring. Go back through the tube again. Live about two centimeters space between the tube and the last Cristo crimped the tube, then cut off the extra court. We've finished these two strand floating beat Nicolas. 20. Bead Weaving: Introduce FireLine: this is fire line. Fire line is highly recommended by many beat weaving designers. It's a superior braided fishing line, is very flexible and stole. It comes in different colors. The one I'll be using is crystal color. The size of fire line is based on their weight taste. £6 fire line is 60.6 inch thick. This is the most widely used for in line size, another populace rate for beat weaving. He's world fire. You can try both of fire line and wildfire to see which one you prefer. 21. Bead Weaving: Right Angle Weave- Make Right Angle Weave Bracelet: beat. Weaving can be don't on the bathroom or by hands from this section. We're going to learn off boom and beat reading so we don't need to buy a big boom device. There are many different beat weavings teaches that can create unique patterns, shapes and textures. I'll record more lessons to keep you updated with different stitches and their variations in this lesson. We're going to the right angle Reeve stage to make these bracelet I'm going to use for millimetre by conch restore bees and some CPIs. These are size 11 cities, about two millimeters in diameter, a closed jump, a ring and the clasp. The SS More closed the ring attached to the class one beating ego 120 centimeters. Fire line for this project. Put the Bt needle on one end of the thread. Place eight Seabees on the needle, fooled by the close jumping and one crystal bead. Move them all the way down. Leave about 15 centimeters tail on this end of the thread. Then take the needle to go through all the bees again. We're going to make a loop. Pull it tight, so we've got to loop the clothes the jump ring is attached to the loop. Here, make two or three titles to secure the boot. Then take the needle to go through this crystal bead at the three crystal bees, then go through the fist crystal bead again. So we've got a forbid unit. This is the first unit of this right angle. We've bracelet. Let's see a diagram. It will be easier to understand. So this is the first you need. We've made. It's like a square loop with four Chris Toby's. You can see the bees lie at right angles to one another. So that's why is called right angle. We've to understand the structure of better. I'll draw a line in the middle of this unit. You can see there are two peas on the line, one B, these on the top of the unit and the other one is on the bottom. Then it has one beat on the left side and one on the right side. To make the second unit, we need to add three bees on top of the first you need like that. So we need to take the needle to go to the top, beat off the first you need Go through the bead on the side, then go through the top, beat at three crystal bees and go through the top beat of the first you need. We've made the second unit. Let's see the diagram. This bit here is a top beat of the first unit. It's also the bottom bead of the second you need to make the food you need just to add three bees on top of the second you need like that. So we need to take the needle to the top, beat off the second unit. I need to flip it over to continue. Go through the bead on the side, then the top beat at three crystal bees Go through this speed again. We've made the food you need. Then take the needle to go to the top speed of the foot you need. Now we are ready to add the new unit. So three crystal bees then go through the top beat of the 50 unit. We've made the fourth unit repeat the same steps to continue adding more units. Do you get the desired than I've got a good length for my wrist? Then we'll add CPIs to make a loop and get the clasp attached to the end place for cities. The clasp and another forces bees on the needle. Take the needle to go through the top crystal bead off the last you need, then go through all the CPI's and the crystal beat on this loop again. By the way, the ring on the clasp is quite small, so it doesn't move around in the city's loop. It'll stay there. That's why I put it in the center of the Seabees. So full sit bees sit on each side of the clasp. Next, take the needle to go back through some bees and make notes to secure the work. We can either go back to the crystal bees or go back to the Seabees. I'll take the needle to go back through a couple of CPIs, then take the needle to go end of the Threat bridge. Pull the thread, take the needle to go into the loop and police tight. This is called half hitch knot, then continue to go through the next couple of CPIs and make 1/2 hitch notes. Go through the next few CPIs, make another note. We can also take the Nido to go into the loop twice to make the notes, pull it tight, then go through the next two CB's and the last crystal bead. We've made several notes on this end, so it should be secure enough. Trim off the excess thread we've seizes. We're finished this end. Let's go back to the other end. Put the needle on the threat tail, then go back through the Seabees on the lube and make some notes to secure the work, just like the other side with you than to use heavy bees for this bracelet. So several notes should be enough. If you're going to use bigger and heavier bees, then better to go back through Moby's and make models to secure the project. Okay, we are almost there. Trim off the excess a thread. We've finished this right angle. We've bracelet 22. Bead Weaving: Cross Weave (Two Needle Right Angle Weave): right angle wave can be down with one needle or two knee. Those we've learned to the one needle method in the last lesson in this lesson, we're going to make a right angle wave bracelet. We've to needles. The two needle right angle wave is also called Cross Wave, cut off 120 centimeters. Fire line for this project. The bees are four millimeter by co increased Opie's size 11 CPIs, about two millimeters in diameter, a jump ring, a class. I have attached a small jumping to the clasp and to beating me. Those put the beating me. Those on both ends of the thread place my cities on one needle. We're going to make a seat bees loop to attach the jump ring or the clasp. Later. You can add more cities to have a bigger group or use less CPIs To get a smaller lewd, bring them all the way down to the center of the thread. Put a crystal bead on one nido moving on the thread. Take the other nido to go through the feed from the opposite direction to cross the crystal bead. Hope to need those together and slide it down. We've got toe loop at the center of the thread. Take one needle to go through all the bees again. So we'll have two strands of thread inside the bees to secure the loop. This time, we're going to use normal jump rings so we can finish the loop first and attach the jumping at the clasp later. Okay, we've finished the loop to make the first unit of the bracelet. We just follow two steps. Step one. Place a crystal bead on each niedere. Move them down. Step two. Place a crystal bead on one NATO movies on the thread. Take the other needle to go through the bead from the opposite direction to cross the bead . Slide it down. So we've finished the first you need a square loop with four crystal bees. These lie at right angles to one another. This to needle method is considered to be easier for beginners. We just simply place the same beat on each side of the thread, then cross a bead to finish each you need. That's why it is called cross way. Let's see the diagram. We've made the first unit with four crystal bees to make the second, you need just to add three crystal bees on top of the first unit, same as I showed in the last. Listen, we only need to repeat two staves. Place the crystal bead on each needle, moved them down. That's the first step. Then place a crystal bead on one NATO movies on the thread. Take the other needle to go through the bead from the opposite direction to cross the bead . That's the seconds did. So we've got the second you need place of crystal bead on each needle. Move them down. That's the first step. Then place a crystal bead on one NATO movies on the thread. Take the other needle to go through the bead from the opposite direction to cross the bead . That's the seconds dead. We've made the food you need just to repeat the same steps to continue adding more you needs to get the desired island. I've got a good length former braced. We're going to make another CPIs loop on this end. Place niceties on one NATO. Then take this nido to go through the last crystal bead. So we've got a loop on this end. Take one needle, No matter which one to go through all the bees on this loop again to secure the group. We've finished this loop. Now let's secure the whole project. Go through all these three crystal bees to meet the other threat so we can make notes with two threes. Now the two threes are at the same point. Here. Make two or three titles to secure the project. Mater. Take one needle to go back through some bees and make half Hey, journals. We can go as far as the threat of the house. If we got enough thread, we can go all the way back to the first. You need to Stephen and secure the work. Just keep going. I'll skip this part, Then take Caesar's to trim off the excess thread. Just do exactly the same. Was the other thread. Go through some bees and make half regionals again. Escape these parts. Dream off the exist thread. Then just use pliers to attach the jump ring and the class to each city's loop. So we've finished the bracelet. Many beginners found the two needle right angle wave is easier to understand. One needle method and to needle method are like two different thinking patterns, even though they achieve the same finished look. Some people prefer one method over the other. It's better to try out both of them to see which one you prefer. 23. Bead Weaving: Cross Weave-Make a Pearl and Crystal Beaded Bracelet: in this lesson, we're going to learn how to make these cross wave bracelet with multiple peas I'm going to use to beating Nieto's size 11 CPIs. The are transparent rainbow kala formula, meter by con creased of bees in crystal, a B cover, full millimeter white glass pros and a pair of magnetic clasp it has to have with a small close to bring on each half. Cut off 120 centimeters. Fire line for this project put beating me those on both ends of the thread who foot CPIs on one. NATO fooled by 1/2 of the cast. Then put another four seats. Bees on the same Nida. The half clasp is placed at the center of the Seabees. Then take two needles to cross a pro. Move it down. We've finished a loop with 1/2 clasp attached. Take one needle to go through all the bees, including the half clasp, so the group will be more secure. We have finished the loop. Next, we are going to make the first you need just full 02 steps. Step one. Place one probe on each side. Moved them down, take two needles to cross a pro, So we've got a full pro. You need to make the second unit. I'll go with multiple bees, they're asked due to states. Step one tries to sit bees, one crystal bead and another two seat bees on each needle moved them down. Step two take to need owes to cross oppo. Move it down. We've made to the second you need It's a bigger loop. Compare with the first unit because we put more bees on each side for this you need. Then, just to repeat making these two units, place one probe on each side. Then take the two needles to crow SAPO to get a full pro you need. Then place to seat bees, one crystal bead and another two seat bees on each nida. Take two needles to cross a pro. To get a bigger loop, you need just continue making more units like these. Do you get a desire to them? That's about the length I need to finish the bracelet. Place four cities on each needle. Place the other half of the clasp on either of the two. Knee those. Move them down Now make two or three notes. We've thes two threes. Make sure the notes are tight and secure enough. Then take each needle to go back through the bees on this loop and make one or 2/2 hitch notes. We've already made knots with two threes, so we don't have to make a lot off half hitch notes. I'll go with the other Nido. Go back through the other bees on the loop and make one or two notes. Here. I'll take each needle to go back through one or two you needs on the bracelet and make notes to secure the project. I'll escape this pot, then trim off the excess thread. Do the same with the other thread. Again, I'll escape these pots. Trim off the excess thread. We've finished thes cross wave bracelet again. Cross wave is the two needle version of right angle wave. In this lesson, we created a more interesting pattern. Using multiple bees 24. Bead Weaving: Ladder Stitch-How to Do Ladder Stitch : leather stage is probably the easiest be the bleeding stage for beginners to learn. It's commonly used as the base for other bead weaving speeches, but we still can use leather speech on his own to create jewelries like the ring we are going to make in the next Listen. Now let's look at how to do at this stage. Have threaded my needle with a piece of fire line about 30 centimeters. I'm going to use cylinder shaped CPIs because they seat together nicely for the speech. First, we can slide one bead as our stop bead. It keeps other bees from fully off the end of the thread. Leave a short tail here, then go through the bead in the same direction again. Who? The thread. So the bead is trapped on the thread. Pick up a one bead as the foundation bead of the latest egx. Then just follow two steps, stick one, pick up a new bead and go through the previous feed so they seat next to each other step to go through the new bead. Then just simply repeat these two states. Step one, pick up a newbie and they go through the previous speed. Step two, Go through the new bead just to repeat, pick up a new beat and go through the previous feed. Then go through the new bead. Continue adding bees like these. It's very easy to reach a desire to live with mother stage. I'm going to add another couple of bees like these. Now I have 11 bees on this letter stage. At this stage, the finished part of look a bit loose and the bees may not see it street next to each other . We can reinforce leather speech to make it stronger and look nicer. Just take the nido to go back through. Each bead full of the existing threat path you can see is getting straight. Oh, continue going through all the bees on this leather stage. Now the needle is back at the starting point. It looks nice and street. So that's the basic that a speech technique 25. Bead Weaving: Ladder Stitch-Make a Classic Beaded Ring with Ladder Stitch: in this lesson, we are going to make this letter stage BD the ring I'm going to use gold color cylinder shaped CPIs. They are about 1.6 millimeters in diameter and 100 centimeters fire line like I showed in the last lesson, Put a stop beads on the thread, leave a short tail, then go through the beat again. So the bead is trapped on the thread. This time, pick up three bees as the foundation bees off the ladder stage, then still follow two steps. Step one. Pick up three newbies and go through the previous three bees. Step to go through the three newbies. Just to repeat these two staves, pick up three newbies and go through the previous three bees, then go through the three newbies. Keep repeating these two steps. This time we are using three bees on each row, but the basic technique is the same. It's an easy, repetitive persists. Continue adding bees like these. Do you get a good length to wrap around your finger? This is a good length for my ring finger. It can wrap around my finger nicely. Then we're going to connect. The two ends together to form a ring, take the needle to go through the fist row, then go back through the last row to bring the two ends together, then go through the fist row and the last arose again. This can secure the connection. We can take off the Stoke beat now. Then I'll take the needle to go through each row on this ring band to reinforce the work. This process will stiffen the work and keep the bees seat nicely together. I was keep these pots and back to the fist rule. Now to secure the finish, take the nido to go. End the threat bridge to make 1/2 hitch nods, then go through the next two row and pull the thread tied so the not is tightened. Then go through the next road. Make another note. Go through the next couple of froze. It's quite secure. Now. Trim off the excess thread and the other three tail, so we've made a letter stage. Bt the bring 26. Bead Weaving: Beaded Flower-Make a Classic Daisy Chain Bracelet: in this lesson, I'm going to show how to make these classic daisy chain bracelet. The traditional daisy chin is always made. We've around cities, but you can use different types of bees. First, I'll show how to make a daisy flower. I'll use bigger peas to make a daisy flower so you can see it clearly. These are three millimeter glass pros in two colors. Blue and white have threaded my needle with a stock bead. On the other end of the thread, pick up six blue pros. The other petal bees of the daisy slight them down. Then take the needle to go through the fist po again. We've made a loop, then pick up a white pro. It will be the centerpiece of this daisy. If I place it in the center of the loop now we can see the thread. As of the centerline of this loop, it divided the group into two halves. There are three blue pros on each half, so three blue pros on the top off the loop and the other three blue pros are at the bottom of the loop. The threat came out from the top off the speed we count the next three bees, so one to three going to the third beat from the bottom. Who? The thread. So we've made a daisy. Next, let's make this classic daisy chain bracelet. We've seen bees, the colors of the Seabees. I'm going to use our cream white to Coy's blue and silver color. All of these three groups of cities our size 11 about two millimeters in diameter. We also need size 15 silver color cities. They are about 1.5 millimeters in diameter, a close to jump a ring and the clasp. There's a small closed ring on this clasp. Have threated my needle with 75 centimeters fire line and added a stop beat on the other end. Live about 13 centimeters, three tail so we can attach the clasp or the clothes. The jump ring. Later. Place six Blue CPIs, the other pedal bees of the first daisy. It's like them down. Then go through the fist blue sea peat to form a loop. Because this is the first daisy on the thread. I'll take the needle to go through all the bees on this group again to secure the move. Then we are ready to add the center bead, pick up one size 11 supersede bead. We can place it in the center of the loop. Now the threat came out from the top. Off the speed we count the next three bees, so one 23 go into the third beat from the bottom. So we've made the first daisy, then pick up three size 15 silver seat beads. I want them to be the space appease between the daisies. You can add more bees or less bees to be the space of bees. Now we are ready to make the second daisy. This time, I'll use six white cities as the petal bees. Then go through the fist white see bead to form a loop. The Who? The loop as close to the space appease as you can. So there's no gap between this daisy and the space. Api's pick up one size 11 Super C peed. This is the center bead again counts. The next three bees on the loop go into the food beat from the bottom. We've made the second daisy again. Pick up three size 15 Super CPIs. Then we're ready to make the food Daisy with blue petal bees. So six blue cities then go up through the fist blue Sea Peed. Who? The loop closed up to the space of bees. Then pick up one size 11. Silversea peed and go into the speed from the bottom. This is the third Daisy flower at three size 15 Super CPIs. I'm going to do one more Daisy. Then I'll show you how to finish off this bracelet. Now we are ready to make the next daisy. We've white pittle bees, so six white cities go up through the fist white. See bead. Who? The loop close up to the space of bees at one size 11 Super C peed as if the centerpiece going into the speed from the bottom. Just continue making more daisies and adding space. Appease like these to get the length you need have made a good length for my wrist. Then I'll attach the clasp. On this end. Pick up three size 15 super CPIs, just like the space appease, we added between the daisies. Then pick up the clasp and go back through these three CPIs. So the clasp is attached to this end. Go through these petal beat to send to the class, then go through the other pedal bees to secure these parts. I like the bracelets were made in the right angle. We've section this time. I didn't make a seat. Please move to attach the class because this bracelet is quite 20. So I just used three sides. 15 cities to get the clasp attached to minimize of the finish. Continue to go through the Peto bees on this daisy and the make several notes. To secure this parts. - Trim off the excess thread. We've finished this end. Let's do the other end. Take off the stop bead. Put the needle on the threat tail. Then just like the other side. Pick up. Three says 15 super CPIs. Fooled by the closed jump ring. Go back through these three bees, then go through this petal beat to center this part. Next, go through the other petal bees on this daisy and make notes to secure the work. - Trim off the excess thread. So we've finished this classic daisy chain bracelet 27. Bead Weaving: Beaded Flower-Make a Daisy Ring and A Matching Bracelet: in this lesson. We are going to make this daisy ring and a matching bracelet. I'm going to use size 11 cities in red and pink color. You can use any other colors you like. I need about 50 centimeters. Fire line. I've placed a stop beat. We've 13 centimeters. Threat tail. We've learned how to make daisies in the last lesson. So pick up six pink bees as the petal bees go up through the fist beat to make a loop. This will be the first daisy on the thread. Right now, we don't have to run through all the bees again for security. I'll do that after we finish the band of this ring. So let's go ahead. To finish this daisy, pick up a red bead as a centre bead. We can go through this beef now pull the thread and the red bead is centered in the loop. Then pick up six pink bees to make the next daisy. This time, I'm not going to add space. Appease between the daisies. Go up through the first beat. We just added to make a loop, Pull it close up to the first daisy, make sure there's no gap between the loop and the first Daisy. Then we can add to the center bead so that Daisy's just seat next to each other continue to make the next daisy. So pick up six p Toby's to make a loop. Just remember to pull the loop close up to the previous daisy at the center bead. I'm going to make another two daisies and skip these pots have made five daisies in total. Then let's make the bend of the ring. We just simply pick up some pink CPIs and select, um, on the thread. This is a very easy way to make the ring band. I'll show you a different way to make the bend off ability to bring in the next to listen just to keep adding bees like these. Do you get the right balance? I've got a good land. It can wrap around my ring finger nicely. Then we're going to connect. The two ends together to form a ring. Take the needle to go into the pink beat where the threat tale came out. We can't remove the stop bead, then take the needle to go through all the other petr bees on this Daisy to secure the connection. Then go back through all the pink bees on the ring band. We are going to the other end off the band to secure the connection there. - Okay , we're here. Then go through this petal bead to send to the band next, run through all the other petal bees on this daisy to secure these parts. Then go through the pedal bees again and make half hitch notes to secure the finish. Just like what we did in the last lesson. I'll skip this part. Have made several notes between the pedal bees of this daisy. Here, I'll go through a couple of bees on the bend. Then we can trim off the excess thread, Put the needle on the threat, tell you and just do the exact same thing to secure the finish. Go through the pedal bees again and make several notes. I was Keep these pots trim off the excess thread. We've finished this daisy ring to make a matching bracelet. I have used 80 centimeters Fire line have finished all the daisies on the thread without any space. Abi's between them to attach the clasp to this end, pick up to pink cities fooled by the class, just like what we did in the last. Listen, go back through the newbies, we just added, and go through the next pedal, beat on this daisy to send to the class, then go through all the other pet of bees to secure these part. This time, I'll take the needle to run through these two B's and the class again, then go back through these to bees. In the previous lesson, I didn't go through the added cities and the clasp twice to secure that part. That's because the CPI's connected with the clasp, a size 15 their house a very small. It's really challenging to go back through them again. My needle and thread might get cold, and the bracelet is quite lightweight. The class but does not hold too much weight. So is fine. Not doing that. Next. Just go through all the pedal bees again on this daisy and make several Nel's again. I'll skip these pots. Trim off the excess thread. We've finished this end. Just do the exact same thing on the other end to attach a closed jump, a ring. Then we were finished. This matching bracelet 28. Bead Weaving: Beaded Flower-Make a Pearl and Crystal Halo Ring: in this lesson, we are going to make this pro and crystal halo ring first will make a loop. We've tend by con crystal bees, then add a pro as the center bead, just like how we made a daisy flower in the previous lessons. But this time, the pro as the center bead is much bigger than the crystal bees, so the crystal bees loop appears as a halo around the pole. I'm going to use 16 millimeter glass pearl three millimeter by conquest of bees increased or a B and some silver cylinder shaped CB's about 1.6 millimeters by 1.3 millimeters. I was threaded my needle. We've 80 centimeters Fire line, Pick up Tim Crystal bees, Select thumb on the thread. Leave about 15 centimeters Tail. We don't need a stop beat this time Here, Out high three overhand nodes so we can make a loop with the crystal bees. You can still go through the fist. Christo beat to form a loop like we did in the previous lessons. But I just want to show you a different way to make this loop. Okay, we've got a loop next. Instead of adding this into bead. I'll take the needle off from the long thread and put it on the threat tail, then go through all the crystal bees and make several half regionals to secure the group. The pearl we are going to use as a centre bead is much bigger than the crystal bees. So we used 10 Chris Toby's to get a loop that's large enough for the Pearl. It's better to secure the loop now to Stephen this part, and to keep its round shape. Keep going to the two threes meat. Now we can take the needle off and put it back on the long thread. We are ready to add the pro in the center now, so pick up the pro. This time we count the next five bees on the loop. So 12345 and take the needle to go into the fifth crystal bead from the bottom. So the pro it's centered in the loop. Take the needle to go through the next seven crystal bees and make one or 2/2 huge notes to secure this part. Okay, we almost there. Just stop here. If I hope this parts like these here is the threat came out of the pearl, and here is the same thread. If you received these thread as the centerline of the boob, then there are five crystal bees on each side of this loop. My knee, though, just passed through the middle crystal bead on the right side. Now we can trim off the threat tail. Then we are ready to make the bend of the ring, pick up full Seabees and look back through this crystal bead. Then run through the CB's and the same crystal bead again for security. Then go through three seats bees again, pick up to CPIs, loop back through the two CPIs in the meadow, then go up through the two CPIs. We just added. So we are doing a letter stage to make the band of the ring. We just repeat two steps, step one, pick up to sit bees and go back through the previous two CPIs step to go through the two CPIs. We just added, We've learned how to add these, like these in the letter stage section is quite easy to make the bend. We've led a stage. Just keep adding bees like thes. I'll escape these pot. I've got enough bees on the band. It's a good size for my ring finger. Here we have two cities to connect the bend, so we need to cities to link the other end of the bend as well. First pick up one seat bead. We'll go through this crystal bead from the crystal bead connected to the band. We count the next five crystal bees. This is the fifth beat. Go through the speed at another seat, beat. Look back through the fist row on this end, then go through all these bees again for security. Next, we'll reinforce the band, so just simply go back through each row off this letter stage beaded bend. We've learned this in the latest stage section, so I'll skip this part and back to the other end of the bands now to secure the finish. This time, I will not make any half hitch. Note. There's a different way to finish a beat weaving project. Just simply, we've back the work again, full of the existing threat paths. Some people don't like to make notes for security. If you don't like to make North's either, then you need to have enough thread left to go back. Far enough away from your finished point. We've already reinforced this latter stage. Now I'm going through the CPIs for the third time. It should be secure enough. I'll finish here. Trim off the excess thread. So we've finished this pearl and crystal halo ring. 29. Bead Weaving: Beaded Flower-Make a Flower Pendant with Necklace: in this lesson, you learn how to make this flower pendant with Nick Quiz. This beaded flower has one pro as the center bead and silver cities as the halo around the Pearl. Then we'll add eight by conquest of bees as the petro bees. Let's make this flower pendant first. Then I'll show you how to make them. Nicholas. I'm going to use 16 millimeter white glass pearl, four millimeter blue by concrete store bees and size 11 super cities. We need about 50 centimeters. Fire line. I have placed a stop beat. We've Putin centimeters threat tail. In the previous lesson, I made a loop first with small by concrete Stoke peas as a halo than added the pearl in the center. But this time, I'll show you a different way to make the halo pick up the six millimeter pro and six Super Cities, then go up through the Pearl. So I just wrapped the CB's around the pearl on one side. Then I'm going to wrap the other side of the pearl again. Pick up six cities, go up through the pearl. We've finished this side as well. You can see there's a gap on the top and the bottom. I need to take my needle to the Bolton to add seat bees there to feel the gap. So go through all the seat bees on this side. We are ready to add cities now. He cut two cities run through the city bees on the other side of the pearl so the two cities are placed there, then go through the rest of the CPI's on the same side so we can add cities to fill this gap. He cut two cities just go through the next seat bead on the other side. So we've finished the halo. Let's begin to add Pinto's pick up one seat, beat one Crystal B and another seat bead, then loop back through the previous two CB's on the halo. We've made the first petal off this flower. This crystal bead is our petal bead. The seat bees on each side of the Christo will be our space appease between the Petreaus. Then let's make the second Peto from now on, just full of three steps to make a new Pittle Step one go through the next two CB's on Halo step to pick up one seat beat one crystal bead and go through the seat beat next to the first Cristo. So this city is now a space. A bead between the two pet owes. It links the two petals together. Step three, loop back through the previous two seat bees on the halo, so we've finished the second petal. Just repeat these three steps to add the third Pittle Step one. Go through the next two seats, bees on the halo step to pick up one seat, feed one crystal bead and go through the seat bead next to the previous Cristo Step three Group back through the previous two seat bees on behavior. You can give a pool to a working threat and threat tell you. So we've finished the third petal. Let's do one more Petr together. Still, repeat the three steps. Step one. Go through the next two cities, step to pick up one seat, beat one crystal bead and go back through the seat bead next to the previous Cristo Step three. Look back through the previous two CB's on Behave. Oh, so we've made the fourth petal continue making another three petals like these. Then we will make the last petal together have finished three petals. Let's make the lost one. Take the needle to go through the last two seat bees on behavior, then go through this city bead that is next to our first Cristo. This time we only need to pick up one crystal bead, then go through the seat beat next to have a previous Cristo. We didn't add any seat beat this time because we've already got one seat beat on each side . Then look back through the last two CPIs we've finished or the eight petals. Then just take the needle to go through the Seabees on the loop and make several half hitch Donald's to secure these parts. You can also go up through the space appease and crystal bees to reinforce the petals. Okay, I was. Keep these pots. Jim off the excess thread have removed the stock bead. Now put the needle on the threat tail just to go through somebody's on the loop full of the existing threat path. Make a couple of North's to secure the work. We can also go through the space, Api's and crystal bees to reinforce the Pepco's. I was keep these parts trim off the excess thread. So we've finished the BT the flower pendant. Let's make the Nicolas I'll use about 55 centimeters clear. Nylon cord is 0.3 millimeters in diameter. I have attached a clasp to this end with a crank beat and the cramp in pliers. You've learned how to cream, so I just escaped these parts. Let's begin to add bees on the nylon cord the beast will be using to make the necklace are size 15 silver cities, which are smaller than size 11 cities I used for the flower pendant. You can still use size 11. CPIs. I just personally prefer a super fine Nicolas grab. The other end of the Milone Court is quite Steve. We can pick out the CPI's by scooping through them. Just hope the cord parallel to the beating Matt, then scoop through the Seabees. They are so small, and we need quite a lot of them to make the necklace. It's an easy way to pick up small seeds. Bees like these just continue adding cities. Do you get half of the necklace length you need? I've got half of the necklace. Lynn, about 20 centimeters. Grab the ends of the court and go through one crystal bead on the flower pendant just like that slight, dependent close up to the cities, then continue to add cities on the court to make the other half of the necklace have added enough bees. It got similar than to the first half. Then thread a quint beat, hold it by a closed jump a ring. Take the court back through the crank bead. Put the court to tell you, leave a bit of a room for the closed, jump a ring, then take a crimp implies to cream. I'll escape these pots, Jim off the court tail. So we've finished this flower pendant with Nicholas. 30. Conclusion: congratulations. You've completed the course. Now you have the skills to make many different these jewelry styles. I hope you're happy with what you've learned in this course again. I'll be adding new lessons to keep this course updated. Thank you so much for taking these cause. It's keeping touch.
