Difficulty: 1
TECHNIQUE: Herringbone stitch and ladder stitch

Long rope with PRECIOSA Rocailles

Mix straightforward tubular herringbone stitch with vibrant PRECIOSA Terra Intensive Matt rocailles to create a long rope of beadwork that can be worn in multiple ways. Wear it simply as an elegant everyday necklace, wrap it around the neck twice for a choker or wind it around the wrist several times as a bracelet either in casual strands or a more complex twist.

Material and Tools

Materials

A 16 mm sieve with 8 holes around its circumference; a 18-20 mm diameter round brooch base
 

Tools

A 0.20 mm nylon line; a thin needle; scissors; hot melt glue with a glue gun

Procedure

Step 1

Prepare about 150 cm of the line (an arm‘s width). Place an R stop bead about 10 cm from the beginning.

Step 2

String 10x R1. Thread the line through the penultimate 9th bead one more time.

Step 3

String 7x R1. Thread the line through the 1st bead from Step 2. String 5x R1. Thread the line through the 4th bead one more time.

3

Step 4

String 7x R1. Thread the line through the middle R1 of the 7 beads from Step 3. String 5x R1. Thread the line through the 4th bead one more time.

4

Step 5

Repeat Step 4 another 28 times (a total of 29 times).

5

Step 6

Connect the band into a circle.

Add 3x R1 and thread the line through the middle R1. Create the point of the loop. Pull out the R stop bead. Tie off the line and finish it.

Step 7

Create the circle.

On one side of the band, thread the line through the top R1. Add 1x R1 between every second one (a total of 24x). Thread the line through one more time. Tie off the line and finish it off.

Step 8

Prepare the line again.

Step 9

String 18x R2. Thread the line through the penultimate 17th bead one more time.

Step 10

String 7x R2. Thread the line through the 9th bead from Step 9. Thread the line through the 7x R2 one more time. Thread the line through the 1st bead from Step 9. Thread 5x R2. Thread the line through the 4th bead one more time.

10

Step 11

String 7x R2. Thread the line through the 9th bead from Step 10. Thread the line through 7x R2 one more time. thread the line through the middle R2 from the 7 beads from Step 10. String 5x R2. Thread the line through the 4th bead one more time.

11

Step 12

Repeat Step 11 again 20 more times (21 times in total).

12

Step 13

Repeat Steps 8 - 12 one more time.

13

Step 14

Connect both parts of the band into a circle. Add 3x R2 and thread the line through the middle R2. Create the point of the loop. Pull out the R stop bead. Tie off the line and finish it off.

14

Step 15

Create the circle.

On one side of the band, thread the line through the top R2 (a total of 24x). Thread the line through one more time. Tie off the line and finish it.

Step 16

Sew both circles to the circumferential holes on the sieve at the same time. Tie the line to the sieve. Place the knot on the rear side. First use the holes that are located opposite one another (the green points). Then use the holes located crosswise the previous ones (the red points). Then finish using the remaining holes (the blue points). During this process, you can tighten the line several times by tying it to the end of the line used to attach the circles to the sieve.

Step 17

Sew on the C. Once again use the circumferential holes on the sieve, always using two oppositely placed holes.

Step 18

Use the hot melt glue to adhere the cockade to the brooch base.
