Tutorial : Flower Motif #5
Level : Beginner






Equipment :

- 4mm Swarovski Bicone
- 9x6mm Czech Firepolished Glass Donut Rondelle
- 11/0 Seed Bead
- Clear Nylon Thread No.25

You can use smaller or bigger rondelle beads.

1.



Cut one thread around 60 cm. and make a ring of six seed beads.

2.



Add one crystals, three seed beads, one rondelle bead and three seed beads. Cross both threads at a crystal (red arrow).

Note : If you use other size of rondelle bead, you can adjust the number of seed beads using here.

3.



Put the left thread into the next seed bead of the ring we first made (red arrow). Put the right thread into the three seed beads (blue arrow).

4.



Add one rondelle bead and three seed beads to the right thread. Cross both threads at a crystal (red arrow).

5.



Repeat step 3 and 4 around the seed beads. Cross both threads at a rondelle bead (red arrow).

6.



Add three seed beads, one crystal, one seed bead to one thread. Add three seed beads to the other thread. Cross them at a crystal (red arrow).

7.



Put the thread into the three seed bead (red arrow) and rondelle bead (blue arrow).

8.



Turn to the other side of the motif.

Add one seed bead to the right thread (red arrow). Add three seed beads to the left thread (blue arrow). Cross them at a crystal (green arrow).

9.



Put the left thread to the three seed bead (red arrow) and rondelle bead (blue arrow).

10.



Repeat step 8 and 9 around the motif. Cross the threads at the seed beads (red arrow).

11.



String the threads through six seed beads and make them tight. Return the threads to one rondelle bead.

12.



Add five seed beads to a thread. Put that thread into the second seed beads (red arrow),.

13.



Add one seed bead (red arrow). Put the thread into the rondelle bead (blue arrow).

Repeat 12 and 13 around the motif.



Done!

The finished motif with these 9x6 mm rondelle beads is quite big. If you want to make the earrings or ring, you should use smaller rondelle beads. 

Here's an example necklace I made with this motif.



Happy Beading!
