Netted Beaded Necklace

The bead netting technique is a beadweaving technique that is quite easy to learn and works up very fast. You can use just seed beads or mix them with other beads (I mixed with rondelle beads for this tutorial), in one colour, size  or different colours and sizes.

Banana beaded necklace design

This is done using the russian spiral technique. It is a very easy procedure and works up quickly too. It can be done with different sizes of seed beads. You can use 11/0 seed beads with 8/0 or 6/0 or 10/0 seed beads with 6/0 seed beads or even 6mm crystal rondelle bead. I have used 11/0 with 8/0 seed beads for this particular necklace.

Tubular necklace
Usually made with the classic cubic right angle weave(CRAW) technique. I made this one by first doing two needles RAW (matting), then just close it up to form the tubular shape.

Nepal Chain Stitch Beaded Bracelet

The nepal chain stitch is a very easy stitch and it works up quickly too. However, it is a bit tricky as it needs a lot of tension and as such, you need to pull your thread very tight and often. Also, to prevent it from twisting, you need to hold the middle(stem) in order to overcome this.

Side layers 1 beaded necklace tutorial

The side layers design is classy and very easy to do. It is done with either 6mm or 8mm Crystal beads or pearls or any other type of beads. This tutorial was a very quick one and I just simply used the beads that I saw lying around. I also used a thicker thread and that is why the crystal beads are not very straight. ase if you want to try it, do use 8mm(size8) crystal bead with 10/o (size2) seed beads. Hope you enjoy the tutorial
