How to weave a leaf from a bead</a>

Simple and effective leaves of beads can be weaved in several ways: looped, parallel, but one of the simplest is the way of French (circular) weaving.

You will need

  • - beads-
  • - wire for beadwork-
  • - Nippers.



Pour the beads in a suitable container, from whichWill be convenient to string. Cut two pieces of wire. The first should be about 15 centimeters long, it should be folded in half. It will become the axis. The second piece of wire should be 60-80 centimeters long - this will be low.


Fasten a long piece of wire, wrapping it several times around the axis. You can do without even the axial wire, turning the end of the main in the form of a loop.


On the central fragment (axis), put severalBeads. Their number depends on the size of the future sheet. On the work wire, string a large number of beads. In the left hand hold the workpiece of the sheet, and the right form a semicircle, rounding the beads on the axis. Wrap (1 or 2 times) the working wire around the axis. Pull a few more beads on the low, form another half-circle. Wrap the wire around the axis at the base of the next sheet.


The following semicircles do consistently, each time making 1-2 turns are low around the axis. The closer the beads of neighboring rows are to each other, the more careful the leaf will look.


If you want to make a rounded sheet, workThe wire should be attached at an angle of 90 degrees to the axis. A sharp sheet is obtained if you do this at an angle of 45 degrees. If you need a sharp and elongated sheet, you can put 1 bead between the semicircles on the axis.


Likewise tracerysheet). On the axis, string up so many beads that will determine the "height" of the sheet. Fix it low on the bottom of the shaft. The first two semicircles (left and right) are close to the axis.


The second semicircle should form a "denticle". To do this, count the required number of beads, lower it down. The working wire should not be wrapped around the axis, but around the first semicircle, having retreated a few beads from above.


Next, you pull a few more beadsDown and guide the working wire back, fix it in the lower part of the axis and bring it to the opposite side. There you also lower the beads down and wrap the wire around the semicircle, trying to make the denticles symmetrical.
