When Justyna sent me a message about her new tutorial I immediately looked into it and I felt excitement upon seeing beautiful beaded flowers :) The first thing that came to mind was you, guys :) as I know you will love this!

 

You know how popular beaded flowers are when it comes to handmade jewelry making. The design never fail to make someone smile. When I first learned beading flowers are one of the first designs that I learned. Looking closely at Eirdhan Creations’ beaded flowers, I think pearls are the perfect materials you can use to create the flowers as they look like shiny seeds :) But of course, you can also use round beads.

The finished piece is approximately 1.77 in diameter, perfect as a brooch and pendant. You can also use the piece as a component for a bracelet or necklace.

 

1. Cut a comfortable length of thread and string: 1 x 6mm round bead, 1 x 8/o seed bead, 1 x 6mm round bead, 1 x 8/o seed bead, 1 x 6mm round bead, 1 x 8/o seed bead and cross the thread in the last bead strung.

2. Pick up 1 x 6mm bead, 1 x 8/o bead, 1 x 6mm bead with the left thread, pick up 1 x 6mm bead with the right thread, pick up 1 x 8/o seed bead and cross both threads in this bead. Repeat four more times.
3. Pick up 1 x 6mm bead, 1 x 8/o bead, 1 x 6mm bead with the left thread, pick up 1 x 6mm bead with the right thread and cross both threads in the nearest 8/o seed bead strung in step 1 as shown in the picture. As you will continue with one thread only you can make a knot to keep better tension.

4. Make sure that your thread is exiting from the 8/o bead and is directed towards the center of your beadwork. Pick up 7 x 11/o seed beads and pass through the next 8/o bead as shown in the picture. Then pass through the 6mm bead, 8/o bead, another 6mm bead and 8/o bead. Repeat the entire step two more times and at the end pass through the two first 11/o beads as it is shown in the picture.

5. Pick up 3 x 11/o seed beads and pass through the two 11/o beads on the other side (you are changing the direction now). Then pass through the 8/o bead, 6mm bead, 8/o bead, 6mm bead, another 8/o bead and two nearest 11/o beads as shown in the picture. Repeat the entire step two more times. At the end pass through the two additional 11/o beads so your thread is exiting from the 4th (middle one) 11/o bead.

6. Pick up 2 x 11/o beads and pass through the middle 11/o bead added in the previous step. Repeat five more times, adding 12 x 11/o beads in total in the center of your beadwork (left picture).

 

7. Pick up 1 x 8mm round bead and pass through the beads on the opposite side as shown in the middle picture. Push the just added bead gently inside the circle of the 11/o beads – the 8mm  bead should be inside the 6mm beads, partially covered by the 11/o beads.

 

8. Pick up 1 x 15/o seed bead and pass through the next two 11/o beads as shown in the picture on the right. Repeat five more times, adding 6 x 15/o beads in total.

  2. Excellent read, I just passed this onto a friend who was doing a little research on that. And he actually bought me lunch as I found it for him smile So let me rephrase that: Thanks for lunch! “Without friends no one would choose to live, though he had all other goods.” by Aristotle.
