B&B Extra August 2016

Symbols of love

A

Please support our fine sponsor!

big trend in beading lately has been making jewelry with meaning. Spend just one minute on Etsy or Pinterest and you’ll find endless bracelets, pendants, and more with warm and encouraging sentiments like “Believe in

yourself” or “Mothers and daughters share an everlasting bond.” Stamping words on metal is the obvious way to work a message into your jewelry, but if you prefer subtlety, try the projects in this issue of B&B Extra, which symbolize four types of love and allow you to quietly weave meaning into your jewelry in a not-so-literal way. Anna Elizabeth Draeger’s “Kisses & hugs bracelet” (p. 4) perfectly symbolizes familial love and friendship. Marla Salezze’s “Love knots and rivolis earrings” (p. 7) symbolize the unity of romantic love. Richard Eivins’ “Beaded crosses” (p. 10) reflects spiritual love of the Christian variety. But what of Justyna Szlezak’s “Wasp nest pendant” (p. 14)? Think of it as symbolic of a messy, tempestuous, and stinging love, frequently made more intense by the close proximity of home living. Whether you make these for yourself or someone you love, express yourself with beads!

2 With the tips of the crescent beads facing outward, form the strip into a ring as in steps 4 and 5 of “O component,” but do not end either thread. 3 With one needle exiting between a crescent and a 2 mm (with the needle facing toward the 2 mm), pick up a 150 seed bead, and sew through the next 2 mm. Pick up a 150, and sew through the following two Bs (figure 4, a–b). Repeat these stitches three times to complete the round (b–c), retrace the thread path, and end this thread. This is now the top of the X component. 4 With the other needle, work as in step 3, but don’t end the thread (aa–bb). Sew through the next 150 and 2 mm (bb–cc). This will be the bottom of the component. 5 To make a 73⁄4 in. (19.7 cm) bracelet, make a total of six X components.

Assembly

1 Position an O and X component next to each other with the X component on the right. Using the thread from the X component, pick up a 2 mm, and sew through the corresponding 2 mm on the bottom of the O component. Pick up a 2 mm, and sew through the 2 mm your thread exited at the start of this step (figure 5). Retrace the thread path several times, and end the thread. 2 Position a new O component to the right of the X component. Using the thread from the O component, pick up a 2 mm, and sew through the corresponding 2 mm on the bottom of the adjacent X component, opposite the previous connection. Pick up a 2 mm, and sew through the 2 mm your thread exited at the start of this step. Retrace the thread path several times, and end the thread.

3 Alternate steps 1 and 2 until all the components are joined in a straight line.

Clasp

1 Using the remaining thread from the first O component, pick up three 2 mms, sew through the 2 mm your thread exited at the start of this step, going in the same direction to form a ring, and continue through the first 2 mm added (figure 6, a–b). 2 Pick up a 150, and sew through the next 2 mm in the ring. Repeat this stitch once (b–c), retrace the thread path several times, and end the thread. 3 Open a jump ring, and attach one half of the clasp to the ring. 4 With the remaining thread from the last O component, work as in steps 1–3 to add the other half of the clasp. w

Crystal shard component

1 On 18-in. (46 cm) of thread, pick up an even number of 110s, and wrap them around the crystal shard. They should just fit around the circumference. Tie the beads into a ring with a square knot, leaving an 8-in. (20 cm) tail. 2 Work two rounds of tubular peyote using 110s. 3 Slip the band around the top-drilled crystal shard, and anchor it by sewing through the hole of the crystal and the opposite 110 in the peyote band. Exit an 110 along the top edge of the band. 4 With a thread remaining from the rivoli bezel, sew through the bezel to exit an 110 in the second round from the face of the rivoli, opposite the join to the love knot. Work a peyote strip using one 110 cylinder per row until there are three 110s along each edge (figure 1, c–d). Align the strip to the center of the crystal shard band, and zip up the two pieces. End this thread. 5 Using the thread from the crystal shard band, sew through the beadwork to exit opposite the strip made in the previous step, and work a peyote strip to match the other band. Zip the strip to the peyote bezel (attaching it to the second round of 110s from the back

of the rivoli), and end this and any other remaining threads.

Peyote ring

1 On 12-in. (30 cm) of thread, pick up two 110 cylinders. Work in flat peyote stitch, picking up one bead per row, until you have 15 110s along each edge (figure 2). 2 Wrap the strip around the other side of the love knot, and join the ends (photo c). End the threads. 3 Open a 9 mm jump ring, and attach the earring finding to the peyote ring. w

1 On 1 yd. (.9 m) of thread, pick up a 4 mm fire-polished bead. Leaving a 6-in. (15 cm) tail, sew through the 4 mm again, creating a thread bridge along one side of the bead (figure 1, a–b). Repeat this stitch, tying a square knot with the working thread and tail before sewing through the 4 mm, to add a second thread bridge (b–c). Pull the knot into the 4 mm, and end the tail. 2 Working in brick stitch, pick up two color A 110 seed beads, sew under the thread bridge, and continue back through the last A picked up (figure 2, a–b). 3 Pick up an A, sew under the thread bridge, and continue back through the A just picked up (b–c). Repeat this stitch five times for a total of eight As encircling the 4 mm (c–d). 4 Sew through the first A picked up in the ring, under the thread bridge, and continue through the second A added (d–e). These two beads will be row 1 for the top section of the cross. 5 Work in brick stitch for row 2 of the top section as follows: Pick up an A and a color B 110 seed bead, sew under the thread bridge between the two beads in row 1, and sew back up through the B just added (figure 3, a–b). Pick up an A, sew under the thread bridge in row 1, and sew back up through the A just added (b–c). 6 Work row 3 of the top section as follows, noting the different terms for each kind of stitch: Increase start stitch: Pick up an A and a B, sew under the last thread bridge

Row 5: Decrease start stitch: Pick up an A and a B, sew under the second-tolast thread bridge in the previous row, and sew back up through the B just added. Sew through both beads to align them (not shown in the figure for clarity), and exit the B. Work one regular stitch using a B and one stitch using an A (b–c). 8 Sew through the next two Bs in the last row (figure 5, a–b). Pick up five As, and sew back through the first A just picked up and under the adjacent thread bridge, centering the loop between the two Bs. Sew back through the five As again to reinforce the loop (b–c). Sew through the beadwork to exit the next A in the ring to be in position to start the left section of the cross (c–d). This A and the adjacent A in the ring will be row 1 of the left section. 9 Repeat steps 5–7 to add the left section (d–e). 10 To make a point at the tip of this section, sew under the thread bridge between the two center Bs in the last row (e–f). Pick up an A, and sew under the same thread bridge (f–g) and back through the A. Sew under the same thread bridge, and then continue through the beadwork to exit the next A in the ring to be in position to start the bottom section of the cross (g–h). This A and the adjacent A in the ring will be row 1 of the bottom section. 11 Work the bottom section as follows: Row 2: Work as in step 5 (h–i). Row 3: Work a decrease stitch with two As (i–j). Rows 4–8: Repeat steps 5–7 (j–k) and then repeat step 10 (k–l), exiting the next A in the ring to be in position to add the right section of the cross. 12 Repeat steps 5–7 and 10 to add the right section, and end the thread. 13 Open the loop on the earring findings, and attach it to the top loop of As. 14 Make a second earring.

• In step 3, add 10 As in the ring instead of eight. • When adding the sides of the pendant, you will be attaching them to three side beads in the ring instead of two (figure 6). • Work the remainder of the pendant following the pattern in figure 6, but do not create a loop of As at the top — add a point as in step 10 instead. • Do not end the thread — instead, sew through the beadwork to exit the top point A of the cross, and set the working thread aside.

Daisy chain necklace

1 On a comfortable length of thread, pick up four As, leaving an 8-in. (20 cm) tail. Sew through all the beads again,

and position them in pairs to sit with the holes parallel to each other (figure 7, a–b). 2 Pick up eight As, and sew through the A adjacent to the A your thread exited at the start of this step to form a ring (b–c). 3 Pick up a B, a C, and a B, skip four As in the ring, and sew through the next A, going in the same direction (c–d). This completed daisy chain unit has three As on each side and two As at each end. 4 Pick up two As, and sew through the two adjacent end As and the two As picked up in this step (d–e). The two new As are the starting end As of the next daisy chain unit. 5 Repeat steps 2–4 (e–f) until you reach

the desired length, ending with an odd number of units. You will switch between working clockwise and counter-clockwise with each unit. End and add thread as needed. 6 Pick up two As, the loop of a clasp, and two As, and sew through the last two As your thread exited at the start of the step. Retrace the thread path, and end the working thread. Repeat this step using the tail. 7 To join the pendant to the necklace, find the center unit on the neck chain. With the working thread from the pendant, sew through the middle A on one side of the unit. Sew back through the tip A of the pendant, retrace the thread path several times, and end the threads. w

Repeat this stitch nine times to complete the round, and then retrace the thread path to cinch up the beads. Sew through the first 3 mm added in this round. Round 4: Pick up four 110s, sew through the 3 mm your thread exited at the start of this step, going in the same direction, and continue through the next 110 and 3 mm (figure 7, a–b). Pick up three 110s, sew through the adjacent 110 in the previous stitch, the 3 mm your thread exited at the

start of this step, and the next 110 and 3 mm (b–c). Repeat this stitch seven times. To complete the round, sew through the adjacent 110 in the first stitch of this round (figure 8, a–b). Pick up two 110s, and sew through the last 110 in the previous stitch (b–c). Sew through the 3 mm your thread exited at the start of this step and the next three 110s above the next 3 mm (c–d). Round 5: Pick up three 110s, sew through the last two 110s your thread exited at the start of this step and the next two 110s in the previous round (figure 9, a–b). Pick up two 110s, sew through the first 110 picked up in the previous stitch (b–c), the two 110s your thread exited at the start of this step (c–d), and the next two 110s in the previous round (d–e). Repeat this stitch seven times. To complete the round, sew through the adjacent 110 added in the first stitch of this round (figure 10, a–b). Pick up an 110, sew through the adjacent 110 in the previous stitch (b–c) and the two 110s your thread exited at the start

of this step (c–d), and continue through the next two 110s in the first stitch of this round (d–e). 7 Sew through the middle 110 of each stitch in the last round to form the center ring, retrace the thread path, and end the working thread. 8 Using the other needle, repeat steps 6–7 to form the other half of the bead, but don’t end this thread. 9 Sew through the beadwork as needed to exit an 110 between two tile beads (figure 11, point a). Pick up five 150s, and sew through the 110 on the opposite edge of the tile bead (a–b). Continue back through the five 150s just added and the 110 your thread exited at the start of this step, going in the same direction (b–c). Sew through the next four 110s along this edge (c–d). Repeat these stitches nine times to complete the round, and end the thread. 10 On a head pin, string an 110, a bead cap, the beaded bead, a bead cap, and an 110. Make a wrapped loop above the bead cap, and attach a jump ring to the loop. w
