With the help of special schemes for weaving plaits,you will be able to learn the most necessary and convenient lessons that will perfectly suit your work and become a visual example of how you need to act to get a guaranteed result. Below will be presented interesting work, as well as the provisions necessary for the formation of the bundle. The plaits can be as dense or laced. Can have a square or round section. Also, when weaving beads from beads, you can add other types of beads to the product.
Option of the American plait
One of the most popular and commonamong the masters of types of weaving, is the "American tourniquet." It is performed in the form of a spiral weave. Despite the fact that it is very simple in weaving, the end result, even using the same beadwork scheme, will always look new, if the variants of its manufacture include beads of different shapes or sizes, as well as shades of beads. This interesting kind of harness, often also called "Rope". It is desirable to remember both names, since both descriptions can meet both. The main principle of weaving the "American" plait is that by fixing the central bead or "stop bead", you need to collect 4 more beads for the middle of the harness and 3 beads to fringe the middle. The line, inserted into the needle, needs to be stretched through the middle, i.е. starting with the first, and ending with the fourth bead base, so that a loop of beads is obtained. For such a base or middle, it is worth choosing beads that have large holes, since the needle will have to pass freely in beads from 4 to 5 times.
How to work with the harness?
Then again we string one bead of the stem and threefor a braid. We stretch the line with the needle to the top, beginning with the second bead of the basis of the bundle. The next action is repeated, starting with the third bead, and continue the weave until you get the bundle of the desired length. When the tourniquet is completely ready, we remove the "stop-bead", attaching instead of it, if necessary, a buckle. How to build an American tourniquet Such a tourniquet, which refers to the kind of technique with a multi-layered overlay, will turn out to be quite plastic and flexible. When weaving products from beads using the technique of "American" plait, you can safely use beads of any kind and size, as well as beads, crystals or decorative stones for braiding. When forming an "American" bundle, each of its series will consist of typed consecutively loops that have a certain amount of beads. It should be taken into account that the more beads will include a loop, the more elastic it will be, and the beadwork in the form of decoration will be more delicate. Now consider the scheme of weaving and features"Laced" bundle, which also has the name "Russian spiral". In the performance of such a tourniquet, you can apply, as the beads themselves, and a variety of beads, bugles, crystals or stones. Such cords (tows) can be used as an additional decorative element in the manufacture of an article or such a tourniquet, can itself serve as an independent decoration. When weaving such a tourniquet, we collect a certain number of beads that you need, which are locked in a ring. For this, it is necessary to pass the working thread through the first strung bead again.
The harness of the Russian spiral
Such a cord is played with the help of an assistanttool. Such a tool can serve as a pencil or plastic tube, which respectively are inserted inside the bundle when you are just starting to make weaving. This is necessary for the tourniquet to have the same tension and facilitate the process of beading. The rod you have chosen to make the harness must have a diameter that will allow the harness not to be too compact, but at the same time not too weak, and the beads could fit tightly to each other. In no case should we not allow, when weaving such a cord between beads, we see a working thread. The tourniquet should be elastic, able to hold the mold well. To perform an "openwork" bundle, the number of beads that can be multiples of three and minus one bead is typed. For example, 11 or 17. It should be noted that the more beads you type, the thicker the tourniquet will be. Weaving is carried out strictly following one direction. Two types of harnesses, which we examined in this article, are performed with the help of spiral weaving, which is also called "tubular". Applying your skills in practice, you will be able to make sure that the techniques of making such harnesses are easy enough, and the products that with their help appear on the light, look just great!
