It's not just about bracelets, earrings, barrettes, but also about more complex works, for example, about a necklace made of beads made by oneself.
A bit of history
Homemade jewelry has become firmly in fashion, butto say, with what it all began, is rather problematic. Some jewelers liked the idea so much that they began to produce collections of products with simple design. And if such a masterpiece is difficult to repeat because of the high cost of materials, you can always choose your own budgetary crafts. And it will not be inferior in any way to the beauty created by the jeweler.

How to make a necklace
Necklace from beads for beginners own handsTo make it is simple enough. Proceed as follows. All the coils of the moulin are divided into 3 equivalent bundles, each about 80 cm in length. The bundles are joined together in such a way that the tips of the threads remain behind the bundle. The rest is plaited in a braid. This is what will serve as the basis of the decoration. The length is calculated based on the size you want.
The basis should be postponed for a while and proceedto manufacture the next part. You will need a thread and beads of the same color. Cut the thread and let it pass to the first bead in such a way that the ends meet one another. The ends are tightened, further work is carried out in this way. It is necessary to create a bead thread that is 1/3 of the length from the base. At the end you need to form a bundle. Another part of the bead necklace made by own hands.
To make the next part of the necklace, you needtake wire and beads with rhinestones. The rhinestones are threaded onto the wire, which must be bent, passing through the last pebble, the same to do with the other end. Both ends are held in the upper opening of the rhinestone, located in the middle, and the wire is tightened. To fix the element, metal is wound from the wrong side.
The next step will be stitchingunused small beads. It remains to connect all parts of the necklace to the base - and the original decoration can be safely tried on. As you can see, making necklaces of beads for beginners will not be difficult.
What other decorations are there?
In this part of the article we will talk about manufacturingair necklace. You will need a crochet hook. As a result, the made necklace made of beads will have its own volume and is perfect for evening dress, it is not embarrassing to demonstrate it at an official event. As for the manufacturing process, the needlework skills of the hook will be very useful for performing complex loops that will give the necessary volume to the decoration.
What is needed in the work
In this case, you will need additional tools:
- fishing line;
- hook of medium thickness (No. 2.5-3);
- pins with rings;
- locks, carbines or "screws".
The thickness of the hook should be just this. This size is suitable for working with the line. It is important! Otherwise, there are difficulties with tying the loops and pulling the line.
The procedure for making jewelry
Consider how to make a necklace of beads yourhands. Initially, you should string the beads. The handyman should remember that the necessary length of the line is better to measure and cut off immediately. It will take approximately 4.5 meters. While there is stringing, you need to monitor the uniformity of the beads, so you do not have to stop work to tug the pebbles.
From the lower edge retreat 5 cm and tie the knot witha loop into which a hook will be inserted to form air loops. Then pododyvayut beads (number - at the discretion of the needlewoman). In the process of knitting, you need to increase and decrease the elements to give the necklace a delicacy. A part of the loops can be made with beads, some without it, in the latter case the loops become larger. For convenience, you can use the following scheme: for example, 4 - 3 - 4 - empty - 4 - 3 - 4, etc.
Light necklace of beads own handsimplies the presence of air loops, which do not need to be pulled together. The hook is threaded into the loop, then the fishing line is caught and pulled through the selected loop. This method allows you to perform a simple air loop, which serves as the basis for the chosen technique.
Features of the formation of the first layer
The first layer must consist of a bead chain,having a length of 0.4 meters. At performance of works all is based not only on the future beauty of a product, but also on simplicity of the further assembly. Behind the first chain are sewn empty loops in an amount of 5 pieces, which are assigned the role of a conductor dividing the rows of necklaces. This approach will facilitate in the future the separation of the bound chain into rows and the assembly of a three-dimensional ornament.
With the length of the first row of 40 cm, the next one will need to be increased by 2-3 cm. The third section with air loops and beads also increases. It is important not to forget to leave free loops between them.
The work continues until the beads are finished, toThis time should be ready for more than 10 blanks of the future necklace. The number of rows depends on how tight the binding was made. The last chain ends with five air loops, the line is fixed with a knot, so that the decoration does not crumble.
We proceed to the last stage of shaping the necklace of beads with our own hands (a photo - further in the article). To begin with, all layers of the workpiece must be placed on a soft surface. You can use a pillow for these purposes. You will also need a sufficient number of pins.
The chain is stretched layer by layer, and pinsact as locks and are fixed where the air loops were formed (5 pieces). As a result, you should get a three-dimensional, long, zigzag chain of beads.
How to make a buckle
After the end of the weaving, it remains to collect the decoration. You need to use the pins with rings and pliers to unbend the ring. It must be put on the eyelets, starting at either end of the necklace, gradually removing the pins. When all the parts are on the fastener, it needs to be folded, also proceed with the loops at the other end of the jewelry and put on the end pieces. The pins can be decorated with beads to hide the wire.
