In this article we propose to weave a flowerhyacinth made from beads. This unusual and beautiful gift of nature is known for a very long time. A lot of legends and legends have been written about it. There are sad, for example, the Greek legend of the youth of Hyacinth, the favorite of the god Apollo. Beautiful flowers grew on the spot where the drops of the young man's blood fell. And there are life-affirming beliefs, for example, in the East hyacinths were called "locks of guri". Here they believed that women learned to curl ringlets when they saw these flowers. In order to weave a hyacinth flower from beads it takes quite a bit of skill and very much patience and time. Its creation requires assiduity, as it will be necessary to weave a lot of small details, which will eventually become a beautiful beaded flower. Hyacinths in nature are completely different: white, purple, pink. You can weave a flower of any color you like. It will take:
- Beads 11/0 (we have pink for petals), yellow for stamens and green for leaves;
- Wire in tone beads;
- Green threads floss (+ glue) or floret ribbon green;
- A small container where our flower will grow;
- Decorative stones or soil.
We begin to weave with petals. For each, you need a piece of wire about 25 - 30 cm in length. String 24 beads on the wire, arrange them closer to the center of the wire. Pass one end of the wire through the 14 beads in the beginning. Tighten the wires so that the two beaded parts are next to each other. String on one of the wire tails another 10 - 12 beads and arrange this low between the rest, as in the photo. Wire twigs twist among themselves for a couple of turns. We got one petal. In order for us to have a beautiful flower, we need many such blanks. The number of petals is a multiple of 6. We offer 180 pieces. We pass to the weaving of stamens. For each medina (of 3 stamens), a piece of wire 25 cm long will be needed. Plait yellow beads. String 1 bead on the wire and arrange it in the center. Twist the wire, fixing the bead and continue twisting the two tails of the wire by another 0.7 - 1 cm. On one of the tails to string another 1 beadyellow and arrange it at such a distance from the first that after twisting the wires they were on wire twists of the same length. Do the same with the third bead. It turned out 1 middle. If you decide to make 180 petals, thenit is necessary to weave 30 such cores, since each flower has 6 petals. Now we will weave the blanks in florets. To do this, we join together 2 adjacent wire tails from two petals and string 8 beads on them. Now we attach one more petal and take one wire tail from this petal and one from already linked to the first petal. Similarly, connect all 6 petals. The last 8 beads we string on the second wire of the sixth lobe and the first wire of the first. Now insert the core of the three stamens into the center of the flower and twist all the wires. Similarly, we form all the flowers. They will be 30 pieces. Now we will weave the leaves for the hyacinth. They are performed in arcuate French technique. For the leaf you will need an axis 14 cm long. You can weave without cutting the wires from the spool, having previously made a low of green beads about 1.5 m long for each leaf. On the axis of strung beads of green color 10 cm in length. Run 3 to 4 pairs of arcs. The working wire is perpendicular to the axis. Try to press the arcs as close as possible to the axis and to each other. Weave 4 to 5 leaflets. In order that they do not disintegrate, you can flush additional wires across the leaves in several places. We proceed to the final stage - the assembly. Attach to 1 flower 4 florets in a circle. These 5 pieces are the top of the flower. Make a few turns of winding floras with a ribbon or threads of green mulina. If you use strings, do not forget to glue the beginning and end of the winding. Attach the next circle of 6 flowers, etc. almost at the very end attach leaflets. At the end, make a loop of wires and fasten the hyacinth in the pot. Decorate with decorative soil, stones or any other elements that you like.
