Bead-Making Instructions for Beaded Beads:
from
My recent obsession with seed beads
has completely changed how I view
my DIY (Do It Yourself) world, as well as
added hundreds of new projects to my
“must do” jewelry list. I love sharing this
passion with my Beading Daily readers,
and I’m super excited about these
five new free projects; Bead-Making
Instructions for Beaded Beads: How to
Make Beads from Beading Daily.
You’ll learn how to make fascinating croissant and triangle-
shaped beaded beads as well as the ever-popular tubular
peyote, herringbone, ladder, square, and brick stitches.
All of the beaded-bead patterns in Bead-Making Instructions
for Beaded Beads: How to Make Beads from Beading Daily
come with great step-by-step instructions, colored diagrams,
and materials and tools lists. My fave part is the Artist’s Tips.
For example, Carol Huber Cypher recommends stuffing
her Beaded Pillow Beads with herbs, scent, affrmations, or
milagros instead of felt.
Lynn Davy’s Going Bananas uses fve different stitches. This
particular necklace is like a seed-bead–stitched sampler, and
you’ll know the secrets to all fve stitches by the time you’ve
completed this beauty.
Party Girl Necklace by Robin Cowart pretty much says it all!
This project includes wireworked links to your beaded beads
for a fun twist.
Mel Jonassen says you can use her D-oh Nutz beads for
earrings, hair accessories, or beaded tires on a miniature car!
Vroom, vroom!
Deliciously Diagonal Beaded Beads by Jessica Beels look
like mini croissants. Mmmmmmm, they make me hungry for
more!
Everyone who wants to learn how to make beaded-bead
jewelry will fnd something fun in this bead-mania eBook!
Try a few out and you’ll be hooked like me. So grab your
needles and seed beads; let’s get stitching!

:: tubular peyote stitch
See pp. 16–17 for helpful
technique information.
Create a surprisingly easy-to-make
beaded bead, whose beauty comes from
the pattern of bead color placement. The
croissantlike shape is merely an illusion—
you actually build a tubular peyote shell
and leave the center hollow.

1) MIDDLE ROWS. Working in tubu-
lar peyote stitch, start at the center
(widest) part of the bead and decrease
rounds out to one end; the other side
is worked to mirror the first:
Rounds 1 and 2: Use 6' of doubled thread
to work the following with 1 bead in
each stitch: string 2D, 4A, 2D, 4B, 2D,
4C, 2D, 4A, 2D, 4B, 2D, and 4C. Pass
through all the beads again to form a
ring, leaving a 4" tail. Pass through the
first D of the ring. Leave some slack.
Round 3: Work tubular peyote stitch
around the circle, adding the same
color bead you exit. Step up by
passing through the first Ds of
Rounds 2 and 3 (Fig. 1).
2) DECREASES. Make a series of de-
creases to bring the beaded bead to a
point, continuing to work in tubular
peyote stitch:
Round 4: Work with tight tension and
1 bead in each stitch: 1D, 1A, 1A,
1D, 1B, 1B, 1D, 1C, 1C, 1D, 1A, 1A,
1D, 1B, 1B, 1D, and 1C. Skip over the
next bead and step up through the
first Ds from Rounds 3 and 4 to
make a decrease (Fig. 2).
Round 5: Work 1 bead in each stitch:
1D, 1A, 1A, 1D, 1B, 1B, 1D, 1C, 1C,
1D, 1A, 1A, 1D, 1B, 1B, and 1D. Make
another decrease by skipping over
the next bead and stepping up
through the first Ds from Rounds 4
and 5 (Fig. 3). Snug the beads. The
beadwork will kink, slightly folding
on itself.
From now on, you’ll always add the
same bead color from which you exit.
Round 6: Work the round, but end one
bead earlier. Complete the decrease
from the previous round by string-
ing 1D (the color you just exited)
and passing through the first Ds
from Rounds 5 and 6 (the previous
round and this round) (Fig. 4). Snug
the beads.
Round 7: Work the round, ending one
bead earlier. Skip over the next
bead, passing through the first D
from the previous round and this
round (Fig. 5).
Round 8: Work the round, but end one
bead earlier as in Round 6. String
1 bead the same color you just
exited and pass through the first D
from Rounds 6 and 7 (the previous
round and this round).
Rounds 9–31: Repeat Rounds 7 and 8.
When choosing which colors to add
at the end of the rounds, continue
the color pattern of the diagonal
lines, matching the D diagonals to
culminate at the black line running
along the central point.
Rounds 32 and 33: Work 1D in each
stitch. Weave through the rows a
few times to reinforce. Secure the
threads and trim close to the work.
3) FINISHING. Secure 6' of new
doubled thread that runs in the
same direction as before and exits
the second D from the central point
(the first bead of Round 1).
Repeat Rounds 4–33 to mirror the
first half of the bead. ✦

A strand of uniquely shaped wooden beads intrigued me.
I was able to reproduce their form using two peyote-
stitched triangles whose offset edges are seamlessly joined.

1) TRIANGLES.
Round 1: Use 3' of thread to string 3A
and tie them into a circle. Pass
through the first bead again.
Round 2: String 2A and pass through
the next A of the previous round.
Repeat around for a total of 6A.
Step up by passing through the first
A added in this round (Fig. 1).
Round 3: String 2A and pass through the
second A in the pair from the previous
round. String 1B and pass through the
next A from the previous round.
Repeat around for a total of 9 beads
(Fig. 2). Step up by passing through the
first A added in this round.
Notice that we are peyote-stitching in
the round, always increasing (adding
2A) between the increases (2A) and
adding one more B to each side of the
developing triangle.
Round 4: Work peyote stitch placing a
B before and after each B and 2A
between the 2A of the previous
round, to add a total of 12 beads
(Fig. 3). Step up by passing through
the first A added in this round.
Rounds 5–12: Continue working circu-
lar peyote stitch, increasing B as
necessary between the A “spokes.”
Exit from the second A of the final
round.
Round 13: Work one side of the triangle
using B. When you reach the corner,
pass through the 2A of the previous
round without adding beads (Fig. 4).
Repeat around so your triangle has
rounded corners. After placing the last
B, pass through only the first A of the
pair. Don’t trim the thread. Set aside.
Repeat Rounds 1–13 to make a second
triangle.
2) FINISHING. Stack the triangles,
offsetting the points so a point of
the top triangle rests on the mid-
point of the edge of the opposite tri-
angle. The 2A of a point should
straddle the sixth bead of an edge.
Place a small wad of felt between
the triangles.
Use the working thread of one of
the triangles to pass through the
sixth (center) center bead on the
edge of the opposite triangle. Zip
the edges closed slowly and care-
fully around the entire edge,
matching the point to mid-edge
each time. Pull tight. Secure the
thread and trim. ✦

1) SLICES.
Round 1: Make a ladder-stitched base
(see Techniques, page 16) 2 beads
high and 6 long.
Round 2: String 4 beads and pass
through the second row of the
base. Add 4 beads on the opposite
side and pass through the third row
on the base. (Fig. 1). Continue add-
ing 4 beads at a time to each side
until you reach the last row. Add
2 beads to end the last row and
weave the thread through the
piece to reinforce it. Add 2 beads
to the other end and pass down
through the 4 beads of the first
row. You should now have a base
6 beads high and 6 beads long.
Round 3: Brick stitch (see Techniques
page 16) onto the base using 2 seed
beads instead of 1. Work 4 rows,
decreasing down to a two-bead
point. When you reach the top,
weave the thread back down to the
base (Fig. 2).
Round 4: Repeat Step 3 for the other
side. When you reach the end, curl
the shape around your finger and
stitch both ends together to make a
ring. (Fig. 3). Weave in the loose
threads to secure, and trim.
Make 8 slices total.
2) ASSEMBLY.
Round 5: Secure a thread at the edge of
one slice. Hold the piece that you
are joining side by side with the
other. Join one to another by pass-
ing down through 2 beads of the
second slice and up through the
2 beads on the first slice that the
thread originally exited. This will
make a circle, and when pulled,
should cause both rows of beads to
lie side by side.
Round 6: Pass up through the next
2 beads of the first slice. Keeping
the slices side by side, do the same
stitch, always pulling to join (Fig. 4).
Proceed around until the seams are
fully attached. Weave the thread to
the edge of the slice and repeat
Steps 5 and 6. ✦

1) BEADED BEADS. Make 24 beaded
beads, using a single color of fire-
polished beads for each one:
Base: Use 3' of thread to string 3 seed
beads (a, b, and c), leaving a 6" tail. Tie
a knot to form a circle and pass
through all beads to reinforce (Fig. 1).
Loop 1: Pass through the next base
bead. String 1 seed bead, 1 fire-
polished, 1 seed bead, 1 fire-polished,
3 seed beads, 1 fire-polished, 1 seed
bead, 1 fire-polished, 1 seed bead.
Pass through the same base bead
(Fig. 2).
Loops 2 and 3: Repeat Loop 1 (Fig. 3).
Pass through all beads again to
reinforce, exiting the center seed
bead at the tip of Loop 1; do not
allow loops to twist as you pull the
thread tight to create a rigid bead.
Gathering: Pass through the center seed
beads at the tips of Loops 2, 3, and 1
again. Gently, but firmly, pull the
thread to gather the seed beads
together like the top of a drawstring
bag. With a little practice, the bead
loops will pop into position to form a
nice, round shape. Pass through the
3 tip beads in a circular thread path
three times to reinforce (Fig. 4).
Tie a half hitch knot and weave tails
through several beads. Dab the knots
with glue to secure and trim the tail.
Repeat entire step to complete 4 beads
in each of the 6 fire-polished colors.
2) ASSEMBLY. Cut the oval chain
into forty-eight 1" pieces; cut the wire
into twenty-four 1" pieces.
Links: Use round-nose pliers to form a
simple loop with one wire; string
1 beaded bead, passing through the
top and bottom base-bead rings
and form a simple loop. Repeat with
all wires and beaded beads for a
total of 24 beaded-bead links.
Joining: Open one loop of one link and
*string the end of 2 chains (Fig. 5).
Attach the loop of another link to the
free end of each chain. Open the other
loop of the link and repeat from *.
Continue for the length of the neck-
lace to add two chains between each
link. Join the last two chains to the
free loop of the first link. ✦

Quirky and very bright yellow indeed, these
art glass beads by English beadmaker
Emma Ralph were a challenge that Lynn just
couldn’t resist. Teamed with beaded beads,
peyote spirals, and organic accent beads,
they eventually arranged themselves into
a fun and funky neck piece in Caribbean
colors: banana, mango, lime, and coffee.
Perfect for a summer beach party!

1) SMALL BEADED ROUND. Use tu-
bular peyote stitch to cover the 12mm
wood round:
Round 1: Use 3' of thread to string 5B
and tie a square knot to form a cir-
cle, leaving a 6" tail. Step up for the
next round by passing through the
first bead strung (continue to step
up after each round).
Round 2: Work tubular peyote stitch
with 1A in each stitch.
Round 3: Work 2A in each stitch.

the tail thread through the wood
bead as before. Follow Fig. 2 to repeat
Rounds 1–10 in reverse, but using B
instead of D in Rounds 16–19 and
D instead of B in Round 21. Secure
the thread and trim close to the
work.
3) BEADED HAIRPIPE. Use ladder and
tubular herringbone stitches to cover
the hairpipe bead and add fringe and
square stitch for embellishment:
Rounds 1 and 2: Use 5' of thread and
topaz size 15°s to ladder-stitch a
strip 2 beads high and 14 beads
long. Stitch the first and last col-
umn of beads together to form a
ring. Slip the ring on the hairpipe.
Work all remaining rounds in tubu-
lar herringbone stitch.
Round 3: Use topaz size 15°s to work a
round off of the ring. Step up at this
round and the end of every round.
Round 4: Work the round using topaz
size 15°s and work an increase
between each stitch (Fig. 3).
Round 5: Work the round with topaz
size 15°s.
Round 6: Work the first stitch with 1A
and 1D, the second and third with
2A, and the fourth with 1D and 1A.
Complete the round using A.
Rounds 7–9: Repeat Round 6 to form
2 vertical lines of D.
Rounds 10–13: Repeat Rounds 6–8, but
shift the position of the D beads
one stack to the left or right.
Rounds 14–17: Repeat Rounds 10–13.
Round 18: Work the round with topaz
size 15°s.
Rounds 19–20: Repeat Rounds 4 and 5 in
reverse.
Rounds 21–22: Work the round with
topaz size 15°s. Weave through
beads of the last round in a ladder-
stitched thread path to match
Rounds 1 and 2.
End rounds: Stitch 1C between each
pair of stacks (Fig. 4). Weave
through the beads to exit from a C
just added; string 1B and pass
through the next C. Repeat all
around to add 1B between each C
(Fig. 5a). Weave through beads to
exit the other end of the hairpipe
and repeat the embellishment. Pass
back and forth through the hair-
pipe, stitching through the B oppo-
site the B last exited before passing
back to the other end, until all the B
are connected (Fig. 5b).
Line embellishment: Weave through
beads to exit between the first
1A/1D stitch of Round 6. Work a
dimensional, vertical row (12 beads
long) of square stitch off of the D
beads added in Rounds 6–17, using
2D in each stitch. Pass through all
the D just added again and pull gen-
tly to smooth out the beaded line.
Weave through beads to the other
yellow lines and repeat.
Fringe embellishment: Weave through
beads to exit from an A midway
between the two lines of D and
work a vertical line of fringe: *String
1F and 1C; pass back through the F
and through the A of the next row
below the exit point. Add another
fringe, this time with 1F and 1B.
Pass through the next A on the
base. Repeat from * to add 6F in all,
alternating B and C as the tip beads.
Weave through beads to add a sec-
ond vertical line of matching fringe
along the other side of the bead.
Secure the thread and trim close to
the work. Set aside.
4) STRINGING. Use the beading wire
to string 6F and slide them to the
center. Use both ends to string 1G,
one 4mm crystal bicone, the heart
bead, one 4mm crystal bicone, 1 nut
round, the 14×9mm lampworked
bead with dots, and 1 saucer.
Use 1 wire to string 1G, 1 bone 4mm

beads (core beads), 1H, 1G, 1 crimp
tube, 1G, 1 crimp tube, 1 acrylic nugget,
the small beaded round, and 1 orange
drop. Pass back through the beaded
round, nugget, crimp tubes, and a few
core beads. Snug the beads and place
a stop on the wire to keep the work in
place.
Use the other wire to string 1G, 1 bone
4mm round, 1G, 17 mixed size 8° and

loop that fits snugly over the small
beaded round at the other end of the
necklace. Pass back through the horn
round, 1G, 1 crimp tube, 1F, 1 crimp
tube, and as many other beads on the
strand as possible. Snug the beads
and place a bead stop on the wire to
keep the work in place.
5) PEYOTE-STITCH RUFFLE. Use 3'
of thread to string 1 tension bead,
leaving a 6" tail. Pointing the needle
toward the clasp loop, pass through
3–4 core seed beads of the strung sec-
tion, just below the crimp tubes.
Row 1: Work peyote stitch down the
section of core beads using 2A, 1G,
or 1I in each stitch. Stop when you
reach the wood 3mm just above the
large beaded round.
Row 2: String 1 orange drop and 2A;
pass back through the last bead of
Row 1. Work free-form peyote stitch
across the row, adding 1A between
any 2A you placed in the previous
row. Use 2A in some stitches to
make random increases. In some
stitches vary the colors as desired.
Row 3: Use one- or two-drop peyote
stitch and random seed bead colors
and sizes to work the row. Fill 2A
increases from Row 2 with any
color size 11° (Fig. 6).
Row 4: Use A to work one-drop peyote
stitch across the row.
Row 5: Work one-drop peyote stitch
across the row, widely varying the
bead colors and types, including
seed, small wood, and drop beads.
Remove the tension bead. Secure
the threads and trim close to the
work. Gently twist the spiral into a
pleasing shape.
6) FREE-FORM SPIRALS. Use 3' of
thread to string 1 tension bead, leav-
ing a 6" tail. Pointing the needle to-
ward the other half of the clasp, pass
through 3–4 core seed beads, just
below the large beaded round.
Work 2 rows of free-form peyote stitch
down the section of core beads, as you
did for the peyote-stitch ruffle, work-
ing increases at random and widely
varying the bead colors and types.
Weave through the core beads to exit
from the end of the section and work
another free-form peyote-stitched
ridge (Fig. 7). Repeat once more for a
total of 3 ridges. Remove the tension
bead. Secure the thread and trim close
to the work. Gently twist the spiral as
before.
Repeat entire step to embellish the
remaining short section of core beads
below the lampworked tube.
7) PENDANT FRINGE. Use 2' of
thread to string 1 tension bead, leav-
ing a 6" tail; pass through 3 of the first
6F strung in Step 4.
Fringe 1: String 3A, 1G, 1C, 1B, 6A, 1 bone
4mm round, 1C, and 1 bright yellow
size 15°. Skip the last bead strung
and pass back through the rest of
the beads and exit the next loop
bead (Fig. 8).
Fringe 2: Repeat Fringe 1 using 4A, 1G,
1C, 1B, 8A, 1J, 1E, and 1 bright yel-
low size 15°.
Fringe 3: Repeat Fringe 1 using 5A, 1G,
1E, 1B, 10A, one 4mm bicone, 1B,
and 1 bright yellow size 15°.
Fringe 4 (center): Repeat Fringe 1 using
5A, 1G, 1C, 1B, 10A, the 5mm horn
round, 1F, 1C, and 1 bright yellow
size 15°.
Repeat Fringes 3–1, in that order,
varying the accent beads as desired.
Remove the tension bead. Secure the
thread and trim.
8) FINISHING. Remove the bead
stops and snug all the beads and
beadwork so no wire shows, but the
necklace is still flexible. Crimp the
tubes. ✦

When nakinq the peyote-

tension fairly tight, especially on
the decrease rounds after you’ve
conpìeted the center row. || the

of the bead, make one half by
decreasing, then come back to
the center row and decrease to
make the other half.

Netting (single thread)
Begin by stringing a base row of 13
beads. String 5 beads and go back
through the fifth bead from the
end of the base row. String another
5 beads, skip 3 beads of the base
row, and go back through the next;
repeat to the end of the row. To
turn, pass back through the last
3 beads (one leg of the last net).
String 5 beads, pass back through
the center bead of the next net
and continue.
Fringe
Exit from your foundation row of
beads or fabric. String a length of
beads plus 1 bead. Skipping the
last bead, pass back through all the
beads just strung to create a fringe
leg. Pass back into the foundation
row or fabric.
Brick Stitch
Begin by creating a foundation row
in ladder stitch. String 2 beads and
pass under the closest exposed loop
of the found ation row and back
through the second bead. String
1 bead and pass under the next
exposed loop and back through the
bead just strung; repeat.
To decrease within a row, string 1 bead
and skip a loop of thread on the pre-
vious row, passing under the second
loop and back through the bead.
To increase within a row, work two
stitches in the same loop on the
previous row.
For circular brick stitch, work increas-
es as needed to keep the work flat;
at the end of each round, pass
through the first and last beads to
stitch them together, then string 2
beads to begin the next round.
Ladder Stitch
Using two needles, one threaded
on each end of the thread, pass
one needle through one or more
beads from left to right and pass
the other needle through the same
beads from right to left. Continue
adding beads by crisscrossing both
needles through one bead at a time.
Use this stitch to make strings of
beads or as the foundation for
brick stitch.
For a single-needle ladder, string
2 beads and pass through them
again. String 1 bead. Pass through
the last stitched bead and the one
just strung. Repeat, adding one
bead at a time and working in a
figure-eight pattern.
TECHNI QUES
Tubular Herringbone
Stitch
Begin with a foundation row of
ladder stitch. Join the ends together
to form a tube. String 2 beads. Pass
down through the next bead and up
through the following bead. Repeat
around the tube. At the end of the
round, pass through the first beads
of the previous and current rounds
to step up to the new round.
Crimping
String a crimp tube and pass
through the connection finding.
Pass back through the tube, leaving
a short tail. Use the back notch of
a crimping pliers to pinch the tube
into a U, leaving a wire on each side
of the bend. Rotate the tube 90°
and use the
front notch
to form the
pinched tube
into a clean
cylinder.

Wireworking
To make a simple loop, grasp
one end of the wire with
round-nose pliers. Holding
on to the wire with one
hand, gently turn the pliers
until the wire end and wire
body touch. Create a 90°
reverse bend where they
meet.
For a wire-wrapped loop, cut the
desired length of wire and make
a 90° bend 2" from one end. Use
round-nose pliers to hold the wire
near the angle and bend the short
end up and around the pliers until
it meets itself. Wrap the wire
tightly down the neck of the wire
to create a couple of coils. Trim the
excess to finish.
Tubular Peyote Stitch
String an even number of beads and
make a foundation circle by passing
through them two more times,
exiting from the first bead strung.
String 1 bead and pass through the
third bead of the foundation circle.
String 1 bead and pass through the
fifth bead of the foundation circle.
Continue adding 1 bead at a time,
skipping over 1 bead of the first
round, until you have added half the
number of beads of the first round.
Exit from the first bead of the second
round. String 1 bead, pass through
the second bead added in the second
round, and pull thread tight. String 1
bead and pass through the third bead
added in the second round. Continue
around, filling in the “spaces” 1 bead
at a time. Exit from the first bead
added in each round.
Peyote Stitch Increase
Make a mid-project increase by
working a two-drop over a one-drop
in one row. In the next row work a
one-drop peyote between the two-
drop. For a smooth increase, use
very narrow beads for both the two-
drop and the one-drop between.
Peyote Stitch Decrease
To make a mid-project decrease,
simply pass thread through 2 beads
without adding a bead in the “gap.”
In the next row, work a regular one-
drop peyote over the decrease. Keep
tension taut to avoid holes.
Square Stitch
Begin by stringing a row of beads.
For the second row, string 2 beads,
pass through the second-to-last
bead of the first row, and through
the second bead just strung.
Continue by stringing 1 bead,
passing through the third-to-last
bead of the first row, and through
the bead just strung. Repeat this
looping technique to the end of
the row.
TECHNI QUES ( CONTI NUED)
Circular Peyote Stitch
String 3 beads and form the first
round by passing through the first
bead. For the second round, string
2 beads and pass through the
next bead of the previous round;
repeat twice. To step up for the
next round, pass through the first
bead of the current round. For the
third round, string 1 bead and
pass through the next bead of the
previous round; repeat all around,
then step up at the end of the
round. Continue in this manner,
alternating the two rounds. You
may need to adjust the bead count
depending on the relative size of
the beads in order to keep the
circle flat.
