Do you want to express your warmest and sincerefeelings and admiration for someone? Give him a gerbera. Large bright flowers with petals like the rays of the sun and a delicate caramel flavor will surely taste to their modesty and artless beauty. According to one legend, the nymph named Gerbera was so beautiful that she conquered both young men and girls with her beauty. Attentive and obsessive attention bored and tired the beauty, and she turned into a humble flower. This remarkable flower has in addition to simple beauty another amazing property - it can stand in a vase with water for almost 2 weeks without the slightest signs of wilting. In this case, you can not tear off the live gerbera, and make it yourself, then the flower will serve you as an ornament of the interior or an original gift for much longer. In this article we suggest weaving the gerbera from beads. Bright pieces of a rainbow will be an excellent material for transfer of shades of a live flower, as modern manufacturers let out beads of the most different colors. The main requirement for it will be its quality, or rather the calibration. The better it is, the more accurate the beads are in the size, the more accurate the finished product will be. In order to weave one flower will be needed:
- Beads 11/0 (orange, yellow and green), if desired, you can take pink, white or any other color that you like;
- Wireworm 0.3 mm
- Threads of green color and glue PVA (you can use a floral tape).
First we need to make a heartflower with fringe. We begin work with beads of green color. On a piece of wire 120 cm long and thread on it 2 beads. Then 2 more and in them we cross the wire tails. Now we'll spin in circles. For the first circle on each wire tail, string 6 beads and put opposite tails in them. Those. in the beads of the right tail we pass the left tail and vice versa. For the second to nibble 10 beads. When we weave the next circle, we will begin to perform the needles. They form fringe. The plait of beads is green and yellow. On one wire tail we string 1 green and 2 yellow beads. Now we carry the wire tail into the first yellow bead in the opposite direction. Wire the wire to the circle and tighten. We get a little yellow needle. Now we need to make 8 more such needles (see photo) on this wire tail. Pass the second wire end through the green beads of needles. It turned out half of the circle. The second half we plait on the same ponytail as the first, the same way. Again, pass the second end of the wire through the green beads. Now we have a full circle with needles. In order to be comfortable to weave the next circle, bend the needle upward. We perform the fourth circle the same way as the third, but weave it at the second end of the wire to equalize their length. Needles again bend upward. It remains to twist the wire tails as shown in the photo and the core is ready. Herbera petals will weave paralleltechnique. The number of beads in the rows is as follows: 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 (2) - 6 (4) - 5 (2) - 4 - 3 (2). The numbers in parentheses indicate the number of rows that must be braided together with the specified number of beads. After the petal is gossip, twist the ends of the wire. For one gerbera, 24 petals are required. The last stage remains. Assembly. We take a piece of wire about 60 cm in length and pass into the last row of petals. We shift them to the center of the wire and form a circle. We will have 2 laps of 12 petals. Now take the core and insert it into the hole of the first circle. We twist the wire tails. We paste the resulting blank into the second circle from the petals. Unfold the front side of yourself. Before us are the wire tails of the petals. They need to be strung on 7 green beads. Another 7 beads we string on a wire tail, which was obtained from an additional piece of wire, connecting the petals together in a circle. Now you need to arrange the circles so that the petals go in staggered order. We move the green beads low as close to the petals as possible and twist all the wire tails into 1. We wrap the stem of the flora with ribbon or thread. In the second case, it will be necessary to glue the beginning and the end of the work so that the threads do not crumble. Gerbera is ready to decorate your interior.
