Access This Week´s Class: Picot Bracelet New Bead Weaving Pattern: Romanesque Earrings I just created a new bead weaving video showing how to make what I call Romanesque Earrings. I was looking at some stained glass window designs and one I saw that I really liked was Romanesque. This beading pattern is not hard to make. I used 4mm bicone beads and seed beads. I used the picot pattern on the edges of the design as well. I hope you will like the result! Here is a preview of the video course:
I love making these RAW beads. The designs you can make with them are endless! Trying the technique with different types of beads, round crystals, top drilled beads or even seed beads just add to the amazing things you can make! www.auntiesbeads.com
How To Make a Pearl Necklace Handknotted Pearl Necklace with Pendant Blue Topaz &Pearl Necklace This handknotted pearl necklace has a pendant made from a pear-cut blue topaz in a sterling basket setting. You can change the beads of the necklace or use a different pendant... the basic techniques allow for a lot of classy designs! Skill Level Intermediate. Try this once you are comfortable with the basic techniques. Time Required 1-2 hours. Materials Comments Setting I used a cast sterling silver basket setting to accept a faceted pear-cut blue topaz. Stone Calibrated stones yield a more assured fit. The depth of a stone will vary, so not all settings will accept all stones of a certain size. My stone is a 9x6-mm blue topaz. Smooth jaw pliers I used flatnose pliers, but you could use stone-setting pliers or nylon-jaw pliers. No teeth or you will scratch the setting! Loupe Optional, but nice to have. Stringing Material I used size F silk, but you could use heat-treated nylon or string the necklace on beading wire. Pearls I used a strand of 5.5-mm potato-shape pearls, with a pair of 4.5-mm pearls near the pendant. 2 Bead Tips or other appropriate endings, such as crimps or bullion.
