Embroidery with beads is one of the techniques of needlework, in which this unique and interesting material is used.

Beads can easily be embroidered not only landscapes, faces, animals and so on, but also icons that are in no way inferior to the work of professional icon painters. Any needlewoman can do the work, even if she has never worked in this technique before. The main thing is to choose a seam, which it will be easiest for her to sew. Traditionally, most of the paintings, in particular icons, are embroidered with the "Monastery" seam or, as it is still called, "semi-cross". It is ideal for circuits already applied to the canvas by the manufacturer. Such schemes can be purchased separately or in a set. By the way, this is the easiest of all available options. It is these schemes that are marked for the above-mentioned seam. As for the schemes for embroidery with beads, printed on paper, here you can choose any of the three seams that you like, namely "semi-cross", gerdal or stalk. If you have chosen a gerdal suture, then it is suitable forany scheme. There is only one problem - with the selection of colors of beads. Therefore, if 10 - 15 or more shades are used in the scheme, then it is not desirable to embroider a sealed geldan seam. Description of the seams used for embroidery with beads, with step-by-step photos, will help to master each of them. To work in this technique, you need to take the following materials:
- a set designed for embroidery, or a scheme with a canvas;
- beads in the assortment, a set consisting of the necessary number of colors;
- Special thread for embroidery with beads (white waxed), nylon thread or fishing line, the diameter of which is from 0.13 to 0.16 millimeters;
- needle for working with beads, having a long eyelet without thickening;
"Semicircle" The main seam is"Semi-cross". Bead strips diagonally in one direction. Beads should be carefully selected. Ideally, it should be the same size with even edges. The Czech beads are most accurately described in this description, but even it is not ideal. Another point - when sewing the first and last bead, experienced needlewomen recommend fixing them with a double stitch. Stitch "stalked" When working through this kind of seam is obtaineddense straight line. Perform it from the left side to the right. The principle of making a seam is quite simple. Initially, fix the thread with a knot. Then, two beads are threaded on the needle, the needle itself is inserted into the canvas behind the second bead and removed between them. After that, the needle should be carried through the second bead, put on the needle one more. Now the needle is inserted behind the last strung bead, and it should be brought out between the last and the penultimate beads. Repeat all the actions to the end of the series. The embroidery made with this seam should turn out to be rigid. To do this, all the beads should fit tightly to each other. By the time and "stalk" seam, and the seam "semicircle" are almost the same. But, in the event that the beads are uneven, it is better to choose a "stalk" seam, then the defects of the beads will not be so conspicuous. "Gerdanny" seam Sufficiently convenient version of beadwork. The technique of its implementation is very simple. On the needle, you need to thread the required number of beads, corresponding to the color scheme. Sew the entire beads with a single stitch. After that, the needle is displayed on the front side very close to the last bead. The bead is pushed back by the needle to the place where it should be according to the scheme, and is sewn with a transverse stitch between the last and the previous bead. Similarly, you need to do with all the beads of the series. For embroidery with beads, you can use other stitches. It all depends on which one you like best.
