I like how the petals looks like the rays of the sun; it makes me smile.
Beading also makes me smile and just like daisies, there’s also a beadweaving technique called “daisy chain weave.”
Daisy chain weaving is the easiest beading technique. They’re so easy that even kids can do it but even though it’s that easy, let’s understand the basic of daisy chain weaving technique.
The thing to remember in daisy chain is that you should always have an even number of petals. Each petal should have an equal opposing side. You can have 4 petals, 6 petals, 8 petals and 10 or even more. In daisy chain weaving, you can either have the petals connected by sharing or separately weave the daisies.
Continue weaving in this manner and you will have a basic daisy chain. Try it with 6 beads.
For 6 petal daisy chain start with the normal weaving pattern. To add a 2nd daisy, string in 1 bead, pass the thread back thru the an opposing bead shown in orange. String in 1 more bead and pass the thread into the 1st bead you just added.
As you practice you can create your own variations. Remember, explore and you can come up with your own techniques. I hope you liked the diagrams. It is easier for me to show the steps in diagrams but on the next few weeks, I’ll show images as I try create a piece. For now, try on these free tutorials for Daisy Chain accessories!
