~*~ The things you need ~*~
~ Fishing line or other thread
~ 4 - 8 mm beads with large enough holes to put the fishingline through 4 times
~ 10 - 6 mm christals
~ 4 - 4 mm acent beads of choice
~ 2.6 mm seedbeads
~ 1 headpin
~ bent chainnose pliers
~ roundnose pliers
Cut of a piece of the fishing line, 75 cm
should be enough.
You start by stringing the beads in RAW, this
means you string 1 crystal, 1 bead, 1 one crystal
and you cross the wire in 1 bead
you now string 1 crystal on each wire and
cross again in 1 bead. repeat this until you
have strung 4 beads
Now you string 1 crystal on each
wire but you cross the wires in the
first bead ( as shown in the picture
on the left)
Pull the wires tight as shown on the
picture on the right
String "3" seedbeads on each wire,
(picture to the left) cross in the accent
bead of your choice (picture below)
Now string "3" seedbeads on each wire
again and cross the wires in the next 8
"3" you can also use 4 seedbeads this depends on the
shape and size of the other beads
Repeat stringing the seed beads and
the accent beads in this order until you
went completely round.
Then cross the wires in the first 8 mm
bead you started with.
When you're done you should have
one wire at each side of the bead.
You now go through 1 crystal, string 1
seedbead and go through the next crystal.
You do this until you have a seedbead
between every crystal at each side.
Then string one wire through a bead
to the other side so the two wires
can be knotted together.
When you are done pas the wire
through a crystal on each side
in the same direction.
Put a little dot of glue on the knot.
When the glue is dry snip of
the wire ends.
Now you string 1 seedbead and
1 crystal to a headpin.
Sometimes the gap between the 4
crystals is a bit big so I string an extra
bead on the headpin, don't worry you
want see it, it goes inside the beaded
Next you string on the beaded bead, the
headpin goes through the middle of the
4 crystals give it a gentle push so the
extra bead goes inside the beaded
bead. Now you string on 1 crystal and 1
Take you bent nose pliers and
bent the headpin in a
90 degree angle
Now your beaded baroc bead is
With your roundnose pliers
make a single loop or a
