DIY Make Jewelry with Flat Herringbone Stitch Tutorial

Let’s learn to make jewelry with Flat Herringbone Stitch.
Flat Herringbone Stitch is a fast way to build up your beadwork. I find it similar to Ladder Stitch because you also add 2 beads at a time, but unlike with Ladder Stitch, you don’t have pass the thread back thru every 2 beads you add. Since with Herringbone you are continuously working with 2 beads you must always have an even number of beads.First you start with the Ladder Stitch. This will be your base or foundation.

Shown in red colors, add 2 beads and lay it side by side then weave the thread down thru the 2 beads from the 1st row shown in blue.

Add again 2 beads (red) and pass the thread down thru the 2 beads from the 1st row (blue. Keep weaving in this manner until you have build up your 1st 2 rows as your base/foundation.

To end the 2nd row and start a 3rd row, add again 2 beads then bring the thread down into very last bead from the 1st row and weave back into the previous bead still from the 1st row. Make a curve and weave back up into the last bead you just added. Now you thread is coming out of the last bead and ready to start your 3rd row.

Repeat how you weaved the 2nd row.

    1. I am the administrator of a large Facebook Group, Seed Beads and More. We currently have over 2400 members and are growing daily.
      Each month, I issue a beading challenge to the members, usually featuring a different technique using seed beads. The challenge is in the form of an informative document, including links to sites such as yours.
      For our next challenge, I plan to challenge our beaders to create a design using a herringbone (Ndebele) stitch. For those that have mastered the technique, I want to point them toward forming something out of the ordinary rectangular flat piece using herringbone stitching.

      I found this on your site,
      http://handmade-jewelry-club.com/2012/12/diy-how-to-do-flat-herringbone-stitch-tutorial.html
      In our web document for the members, I would like your permission to include one image from the tutorial with a link to the site.

      I would, of course, submit it for your approval before publishing.
      I feel that your site would be of benefit to our members, and that the exposure would bring new visitors to your site, benefiting both of us.

      Thank you for your consideration.
      Sincerely, Anita Adamson
