Using a wide variety of techniques andways of beading, you can create incredibly elegant and elegant jewelry for women with their own hands. These can be earrings, necklaces or bracelets, spectacular belts or charming brooches. Each needlewoman, sooner or later, tries to master this kind of beadwork, like a tourniquet. Naturally, in order to master this new kind of weaving, we need not only verbal or written explanations, photographs of illustrative examples, but also patterns of weaving of different kinds of harnesses. The plaits can be as dense or laced. Can have a square or round section. Also, when weaving beads from beads, you can add other types of beads to the product. One of the most popular and commonamong the masters of types of weaving, is the "American tourniquet." It is performed in the form of a spiral weave. Despite the fact that it is very simple in weaving, the end result, even using the same beadwork scheme, will always look new, if the variants of its manufacture include beads of different shapes or sizes, as well as shades of beads. This interesting kind of harness, often also called "Rope". It is desirable to remember both names, since both descriptions can meet both. The basic principle of weaving the "American" harnesslies in the fact that securing the central bead or "stop bead", you need to collect 4 more beads for the middle of the performed bundle and 3 beads, in order to blunder the middle. The line, inserted into the needle, needs to be stretched through the middle, i.е. starting with the first, and ending with the fourth bead base, so that a loop of beads is obtained. For such a base or middle, it is worth choosing beads that have large holes, since the needle will have to pass freely in beads from 4 to 5 times. Then again we string one bead of the stem and threefor a braid. We stretch the line with the needle to the top, beginning with the second bead of the basis of the bundle. The next action is repeated, starting with the third bead, and continue the weave until you get the bundle of the desired length. When the tourniquet is completely ready, we remove the "stop-bead", attaching instead of it, if necessary, a buckle. Such a tourniquet, which refers to the type of technique with multilayer overlapping, will turn out to be sufficiently plastic and flexible. When weaving products from beads using the technique of "American" plait, you can safely use beads of any kind and size, as well as beads, crystals or decorative stones for braiding. When forming an "American" bundle, each of its series will consist of typed consecutively loops that have a certain amount of beads. It should be taken into account that the more beads will include a loop, the more elastic it will be, and the beadwork in the form of decoration will be more delicate. Now consider the scheme of weaving and the features of the "delicate" bundle, which also has the name "Russian spiral". In the performance of such a tourniquet, you can apply, as the beads themselves, and a variety of beads, bugles, crystals or stones. Such cords (tows) can be used as an additional decorative element in the manufacture of an article or such a tourniquet, can itself serve as an independent decoration. When weaving such a bundle,a certain number of beads that you need, which are locked in a ring. For this, it is necessary to pass the working thread through the first strung bead again. Such a cord is padded with a tool. Such a tool can serve as a pencil or plastic tube, which respectively are inserted inside the bundle when you are just starting to make weaving. This is necessary for the tourniquet to have the same tension and facilitate the process of beading. The rod you have chosen to make the harness must have a diameter that will allow the harness not to be too compact, but at the same time not too weak, and the beads could fit tightly to each other. In no case should we not allow, when weaving such a cord between beads, we see a working thread. The tourniquet should be elastic, able to hold the mold well. To perform an "openwork" bundle, is typedThe number of beads, which can be a multiple of the triple and minus one bead. For example, 11 or 17. It should be noted that the more beads you type, the thicker the tourniquet will be. Weaving is carried out strictly following one direction. Two types of harnesses, which we examined in thisarticle, are performed with the help of spiral weaving, which is also called "tubular". Applying your skills in practice, you will be able to make sure that the techniques of making such harnesses are easy enough, and the products that with their help appear on the light, look just great!
