Flexible stringing material (Opelon, Elastomer, Lycra), an 8 mm wide ribbon (40 cm), a stringing needle, a hook, scissors, a ruler, flat nosed pliers and linking pliers
Metal parts: 30 cm of wire with a diameter of ca 1 mm
The basis for the effective result when using
this technique is the regular layout
of the seed beads which will subsequently
be strung and used for crocheting. We have
alternated various types of seed beads and
beads in our example. The leaves and tabs
will only be added at the beginning
of the stringing.
Unwind the flexible stringing material from
the bobbin and string ca 1.20 m of string
beads. Do not yet cut the stringing material
from the bobbin (figure no. 2).
Take the hook and make the basic loop at the start of the stringing (figure no. 3a). Create each next loop after the designated number of strung seed beads. Here, we have separated 3 pieces and crocheted
a further loop onto the flexible stringing (figure no. 3b). Proceed in this manner until all the strung seed beads have been crocheted. When crocheting, tighten
the stringing slightly so that sufficient
strength is guaranteed while at
the same time ensuring the flexibility
of the crocheted stringing.
The crocheted seed beads will measure
ca 25 - 30 cm depending on how tight
the stringing is. Now cut the stringing material from the bobbin with a reserve
of ca 8 cm and pass the end through the last loop.
Bend the wire in half and create a loop on one end with the linking pliers (figure no. 5a). Bend both ends of the wire equally into the shape of a heart (figure no. 5b).
String the crocheted stringing onto
a shaped wire using the individual crocheted loops (figure no. 5c + 5d).
Complete the heart with a loop which
is created perpendicular to the loop on
the other end of the wire. Thread the ribbon through this new loop and tie a bow (figure no. 5e + 5f).
