Leaves from beads technique of weaving the main species (video)


A leaf from beads can be different in shape and variation of its weaving. This master class will teach you how to make the most famous varieties of leaves very easy.
There is a French technique of working beads, which is carried out by arcs. Consider a master class of weaving leaflets from beads using this technique.

Master-class on making different types of leaves

How to weave a leaf with a sharp end

  • The base of such a leaf includes the lengthProducts, the length of the legs and the stock on top (it is a few centimeters). A short axis (leg) must be twisted with a wire where we will later plant beads (photo # 1);
  • On the base and the tip of the wire we plant beads, it must be done in such a way that there is a little more on the wire of the beads than on the axis (photo No. 2);
  • To fix the resulting bend, you need to twist it with one turn around the base (Photo No. 3);
  • To complete the bend, you must plantBeads that stayed, low. It is worth remembering that to get an acute end, it is necessary that the left half of the arc on the axis starts slightly above the right (photo No. 4);
  • In order to attach half of the bend to the axis, it is necessary to put the wire on the top of the foot and make one turn around it (photo # 5);
  • The remaining arcs are made the same as the first. The main thing is to make sure that the arcs exactly fit each other, and the base remains straight (photo №6-7);
  • Make the necessary number of arcs (photo # 8);
  • To finish the work, the last bend is fixed to the foot, we twist the wire to the end (photo No. 9);
  • The upper end of the base is bent to the wrong side. Unnecessary length is removed by wire cutters. It is necessary to leave a couple of millimeters in order for the bent end of the ax to rest in the twist of the last fold and do not cling (Photo No. 10).

    Narrow pointed tip
    In this master class, we will consider in detail the weaving of a narrow pointed leaf to understand what is its difference from a regular leaf with a sharp tip.
    Narrow leaves of beads with sharp ends differ from ordinary pointed ones in that they have a narrower and more oblong appearance.

    It begins to be created exactly as well, but betweenArcs on the bottom of beads, and the next fold is fastened to the base over this bead. To complete the arc, one turn is made around the leaf circle. How many folds and beads that thread on the base will be made according to your desire. The end of work is done as well as in a leaf with a sharp end.

    Orchid leaves
    The master class of weaving orchid leaves is also made according to the French technique, only it is made round, not pointed.
    The peculiarity of the orchid leaf scheme is thatBends are fixed on the axis perpendicular to each other. Twisting around the axis is not done, so you need to make sure that the beads are tightly pressed against the axis and the bend seemed to be continuous.

    Having made the necessary number of folds, the creation of an orchid leaf is completed in the same way as in pointed bead leaves. The main feature of the leaves
    Is their length. It is recommended that the sheet be sewn with a thread in several places to make it look more solid.

    Shamrock shamrock
    If you decide to weave clover, then the master class of weaving his shamrock from beads is very simple in execution:

  • Following the scheme, make a loop with beads (from 5 to 9 pieces), on the one hand you need to leave a short one, and on the other - a long piece of wire. A small piece in the future will become the foot of our flower;
  • The next fold will go as if framing the first. We fix it on the foot with one or two turns. The arc can be several (not more than 4);

  • Stepping back from our first leaf, do one more, in the same way. Indentation is needed in order to then make a leg of the new leaf, from the base of the inner loop and to the front;
  • We perform the necessary number of leaves and twist the wire, giving the twig the desired shape.
  • Toothed leaf Schemes for weaving leaves with denticles are also not difficult to perform, but the technique is significantly different from the previous ones. Consider a step-by-step master class:

  • As for a leaf with a sharp end, one fold is performed;
  • The second fold on the right is done by returning: Fastened not over the base, but on the previous fold, a few beads running away from its edge. The wire is wound from the inside and out on the outside of the sheet;
  • The second part of the bend should fit well with the first and be fixed on the base of the axis;
  • The bend on the left side is done by return similar to the first, necessarily symmetrical to it;
  • The following bends are made in the same way as the second;
  • Completely finished the work we fix the wire around the circle of the leg and until it ends;
  • As in the weaving of the pointed sheet, cut off the end of the axis in such a way as to bend it and clamp it to the base.

  • French weaving technology is used inVery many leaves made of beads: compound leaves, ivy leaves and others. Those who want to learn how to weave more difficult to do the leaves, even having a detailed master class for work, you must first learn this technique of work.
