In this master class we will weave an original, gentle and air bow of beads, based on a simple beaded openwork mesh. This bow can be used as a keychain, brooch or barrette. For the manufacture of a bow, we only need:
- Small beads, any color (at your choice), it must be taken as much as possible;
- Pearl beads 3 mm in diameter, no more than 20 beads;
- Thread, line or monofilament.
Steps for completion: 1. It is necessary to type 89 beads on a thread with one working end, and at the very end of the thread you need to tie a knot or tightly fix as an object an additional contrast bead or bead. So, after completing the weaving, it is necessary to remove the bead-knot and fix the end of this thread. Then you need to pass the thread in the opposite direction through the second bead from the end and put on the thread 7 beads, skip seven beads in the set, then pass the thread through the eighth bead. You need to perform a series of rhombuses, each time stringing on 7 beads and passing the thread through the eighth bead of the set. To decorate the last diamond in this row, you need to type 7 beads on the thread, go through the thread through the first bead of the set, then put on 1 bead and go back through the first bead of the set and through the 4 beads from the seven diamonds for the last rhombus. Next string 7 beads for each wall of new rhombuses, and pass the thread through the fourth bead of the seven interwoven rhombuses in each wall. It is necessary to perform an openwork mesh according to this scheme. 2. The edges of the workpiece should be bent to the center, as shown in the diagram, then weave them to the central part of the canvas, leaving in the center a series of whole rhombs. Further on the center of the workpiece, type an additional row consisting of nine beads (marked with asterisks in this scheme). 3. On the basis of an additional row of nine beads, it is necessary to weave 1 row in the technique of hand weaving, on the second row weave 2 beads with hand weaving, then put 2 more beads on the thread, pass the thread through the first strung bead, then through the third bead in the previous row, then weave a series according to this scheme. It is necessary to pull the thread through the last bead in the row and perform an openwork mesh for the hanging part of the bow, according to this scheme. Then separately, it is necessary to make the second hanging part. 4. It is necessary to make a detail for the neck of the bow by a separate cloth. Half of the cloth tediously weave in the technique of mosaic weaving, alternating beads with beads. The second part must be performed only from the beads, stringing 2 beads at a time during the series with beads. 5. Next, you need to bend the hanging parts, as shown in this diagram, and fix them with a thread. Then you need to put a mosaic pattern of beads and beads in the center and weave its edges together. That's all!
