Creating crafts from beads - one of the mostancient types of needlework. Beadwork was introduced into a person's life many hundreds of years ago. Many archeological excavations find articles of various glass, gold and other beads, which were the prototype of modern beads. What do they weave from the small fragments of the rainbow now? Lovers of high-quality and beautiful jewelry are pleased with various earrings, bracelets, necklaces, pendants and rings, for lovers of home comfort there are schemes of paintings, caskets, purses and handbags. Craftsmen weave from beads napkins, holders for curtains, brooches, fur-tree toys and much more. To create such beautiful, bright and memorable things you need a certain skill in working with beads. Therefore, before you start creating a favorite, and at the same time rather complicated and time-consuming things, it is better to practice on simple and simple figures from beads. To create such crafts, different techniques of weaving are used, and besides the schemes of such figures there is a great variety, so boredom and monotony do not exactly threaten. Conditionally, the figures can be divided into three-dimensional and flat. Both are very easy to create, and the result of their work can be used as a key ring for a key or a mobile phone, an original suspension or earrings. In the master class to create two nice horses, you can practice perfectly in the techniques of mosaic and brick weaving. These cute little kittens are about 5.5 x 5.5 cm or slightly smaller. Everything will depend on how well you calibrated the beads you chose. The better the beads are selected for each other, the more accurate the result will be the work. The horses are woven from two parts, both parts are sewn together, and between them there is a little material for stuffing to create bulkiness. It will take: Beads 10/0 (black and white for peepholes and contours), and for the rest of the bull's calf to your taste. A line, monofilament, kapron thread (the one that will be more like it). Cone-shaped or in the form of cylindrical beads (this will be a hoof) about 5 - 7 mm. Material for packing. You need to start work from the central part of both halves (they are marked on the diagram in blue contour). Weave in mosaic technique. Then weave the part on which the neck of the horse and at the end of the weave part of the trunk. When both halves are woven, it is necessary to sew them for extreme beads. Do not forget, fill with stuffing material. For a tail in each low, make 30beads, for bangs on 5 beads, for manes 16 beads. The legs make 20 beads + 1 bead. All the parts are made with needle technology. Each such "needle" - is to string all the beads, and then pass the fishing line, letting the last three beads through all the others. The horse is ready. And here is another pretty filly with a bright mane. It will take: Beads 10/0 black, white and the color that will be at the trunk and mane. Monofilament. Beads for hooves. Two beads of a larger size for the peephole. Material for packing. Work begins in mosaic technique, as inlast time, from the center part. (It is indicated by a rectangle in the diagram). After that, weave the back of the head and one ear. The second one in the figure is highlighted in gray. In order to be comfortable to weave a bang, this second eye is better to weave in the end. To weave down on the drawing two more rows and beginto weave a face. Then weave the body. Make both halves. Sew for contoured extreme beads, filling with filler. The legs are similar to the previous horse. The mane and tail consist of needles of 10 beads, a bun of 5. The mane is sewn in two rows for the extreme beads of both halves. The bun is sewn between the ears (on five beads). Do not forget to weave the second ear. Sew on the big bead-eyes. A funny horse is ready. Another charming figure, not requiring special skills - an angel of beads and beads. Such a guardian angel can be a great gift for a friend or loved one, hanging in the form of a key ring on keys, it will remind you of you and your warm feelings to a person. You can weave them on a string, line or monofilament, andjust on a thin wire. Below is a very simple and understandable master class for weaving an angel. It will take: Line (wire, thread). Beads of different sizes. A large bead for the head. The body of an angel can be weaved with cross-technique in two strings, beginning with 5 beads or beads. To dial a piece of wire (fishing line) of a convenient length of 5 beads. Dial 4 beads on one ponytail and pass the second tail in them. It turns out that both ends of the wire (line) crossed inside the second row of the body of the angel of 4 beads. In the next row there will be 3 beads, then 2. Then 1. On this body is finished and weaving startswings. On each tail of the wire strings of 15 beads of another color. Skip the tails in the beads of the penultimate row. Right from right to left, left from left to right. And cross the tails in the bead of the last row. On both tails to string 1 large bead. This is the head of an angel. On one of the tails, thread a few beads (such as on the wings) and roll it low with a ringlet. It's a halo of an angel. Now you can make an eyelet from the remaining wire and hang the angel like a Christmas ornament or a keychain. Here are a few more schemes. Bright flat fish. Cute pink elephant. To create it is similar to horses. The place of attachment of the tail is indicated by a cross in the figure. The tail is made in needle technology strung a bead of different shades of pink on a working thread.
