Bead Hyacinth: Master Class

Bead Hyacinth: Master Class

Weaving beads is considered art difficult. And many, in general, experienced needlewomen, looking at the beautiful flowers made of beads, do not dare to try themselves in this kind of needlework, and in vain. If the actual weaving (on the thread, on the fishing line) implies mastering by various technicians, then making products on a wire is suitable even for beginners. We offer you a master class on the creation of hyacinth from beads. This spring flower will surely create the appropriate mood and will bring a lot of pleasure to the skilled worker during her work. But if you want to try something simpler, we recommend to start with.

So, for the manufacture of hyacinth of beads will need:

green beads - 10-20 grams depending onthe number of leaves; blue (or white, pink) beads - 40 grams to create flowers; yellow or dairy beads - by the number of flowers - for the heart; wire for weaving with a thickness of 0.3 mm - 30-35 meters (perhaps less, I assume that there was 30 meters in my coil - exactly one coil went); a small plastic flower pot (in my case the lid from the coffee can serves); alabaster and dishes for its breeding; floss threads of green or florlenta; scotch tape or electrical tape of any color; bead culling or cheap beads - for filling the "soil"; a piece of cling film; scissors.

Master class on creating a hyacinth of beads

Elements of hyacinth flower Cut the wire to a length of 15 cm. Such lengths will be needed for the number of flowers multiplied by 5. As for the number of prospective hyacinth flowers, it depends on the assembly. I made 24 flowers, but it took only 20. Also cut the wire length of 8-10 cm - according to the number of flowers. We take the first of them, put a yellow bead on it and move it to the middle. We fold the wire in half so that the bead does not turn upside down, and we twist it to the end of the wire. We do the same for all the other wires - these will be the middle of our colors. We proceed to the manufacture of petals for hyacinth from beads. For each petal will need one piece of wire. So, take the wire and string one bead on its edge. We turn the tip of the wire - 1.5-2 cm is enough, no more - and we twist to the end of this tip. Next, we type on the same wire 6 beads. Make a bend and recruit another 8 beads. Instead of 6 + 8, you can immediately dial 14, and then count and make an inflection. The wire is passed through the first bead. The resulting ringlet squeeze with your fingers so that the two bead stripes are pressed against each other. On the wire we string another 8 beads, and we pass the wire through the seventh bead of the “ring” - it will turn out just at the bend (see photo). Again, we compress the bead stripes so that they are pressed against each other, and we bend the petal, “winding” it on the finger. We make such petals at least 100 pcs. If you are afraid that you will be bored with such a long and monotonous work, you can make 5 petals each, and at once form flowers from them - I do just that. Assembling a hyacinth flower from beads To the core we attach a petal of beads, combining the base of the petal with a bead on the stem, which symbolizes the middle. We twist the “legs” of the two elements. So, screwing one petal to the leg,form our hyacinth flower. By the way, in a real plant, each flower has 6 petals. I made 5, because 6 gathered in an inaccurate flower, while 5 curled beautifully, not crawling on each other. Hyacinth Leaves Bead Leaves for Hyacinth weperform in the technique of French weaving. To do this, you need to stitch as much green beads as possible on the spool of wire - at least 50 cm. We do not cut the wire! By the number of leaves, we cut the wire into 15 cm lengths. This will be the axis of the leaf. We take the first wire and string the beads on it until it reaches a low length of 6-8 cm. We twist the edge of this segment (about 3-4 cm) with the beginning of the wire from the coil (on which, as mentioned above, we previously strung a lot of green beads). On the bottom we move the beads to the place of twisting; we both lay low side by side and perform a one-time winding from the coil around the axis of the sheet. It is important to fasten tightly so that the beads do not hang out. Again we move to the twisting of the bead - and lay out on the other side of the axis another row of beads. We make a one-time twist. We continue to lay rows until around the axis will be 3 rows of beads. Now you need to lay the transverse "reinforcement" so that the sheet does not spread out like this: To do this, fill the upper edge of the axis along the row of beads, and then we wind each row of beads, laying the axis between them. On the clearance will be something like this: In this hyacinth there are several leaves around the peduncle, which form a rosette. I made five leaves - they were enough to surround the peduncle. How to collect and put in a pot of hyacinth beadWe take 5 or 6 flowers: one - the central one - as it is, and on the rest we bend the stem at the same distance from the flower - approximately at a distance of one centimeter. The main thing that this distance was really the same. Fold all the flowers as shown in the following photo: this is how you determine, depending on the size of your flower, 4 flowers are enough to form a circle or all 5 are needed. When you have decided, we begin to windcentral flower with green thread or florlenta. The winding should be one centimeter, after which we apply the rest to the central hyacinth flower, with the legs bent, and fix them with a thread. We fasten the legs to the central one so that the stem of the hyacinth does not disintegrate and continue winding. So. gradually primatyvaya all the flowers, we form a hyacinth peduncle. In the course of work, the flowers may wrinkle a little - do not worry, after planting you will be able to straighten them as you need. But in order to avoid excessive crushing, place the peduncle, say, in a cup with cereal, so that it does not fall. Surround the peduncle leaves and wind them to the rod with tape. The upper part of the hyacinth is wrapped in food film, leaving unprotected place of twisting with tape and the lower part of the leaves - they must also go to the ground. Now we breed "soil": pour dry alabaster into the pot and fill it with water. Stir, getting the consistency is not very cool dough. Spoon quickly fill our flower pot with alabaster and insert our hyacinth in the center so that the lower part of the leaves is also immersed in alabaster. We hold the hyacinth in an upright position for a while until the ground seizes completely - it will happen very quickly. When the gypsum is completely dry, food filmcan be removed, and the bottom to fall asleep poor-quality beads; beaded hyacinth leaves and flowers - straighten well, using a needle to help draw out the crumpled elements. </a> We hope, our master class on weaving hyacinth from beads you liked.
