from Beluga Beads Tutorials
(5) Name: 'Jewelry : Diagonal weave with the V-turn
Diagonal weave with the V-turn
Diagonal weave with the V-turn
Diagonal weave with the V-turn

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • netting
  • beading

Pattern Description:

The tutorial contains hand drawn pattern of the necklace in the photos and a very detailed. Following the detailed, step-by-step illustrations, you will be able to create the simple diagonal weave - the one in gold in the photos, AND the diagonal with the V-turn (in bottle-blue and purple in the photos). *********** You will need - not more than 20g of seed beads (9/0 Czech or 11/0 Japanese) - and about 180-200 pieces of glass pearls (3-4mm) or any kind of bigger bead: bicone, bugle, etc. However, you can also make the diagonal line with a different color of seed beads. Its your choice. :) - cotton thread or Fireline makes the best, fishing line makes it too rigid to wear. *********** The tutorial is available in English. *********** The tutorial consists of three parts: - instructions and drawing for the beginning and the simple diagonal weave - instructions and drawing for the V-turn in the middle - instructions and drawing for the backwards diagonal (finishing, after the V-turn) ********** I did not include photos of the pattern itself (on purpose), but the drawings are clear to read, seed beads and pearls are easy to differentiate, thread line is easy to follow. Each step is written down clearly, i.e. how many beads to pick up, where to stitch, what to skip, etc. ********** I wish you happy beading!
