Sample text

Place stone inside the woven band and continue making rows with the lavender beads until you have the stone secured. 4 Referring to the bead key, string on beads in the following sequence: GS-GS-GS-D-R-D-GS-GS-GS. 5 Moving in the direction away from the top of the slab, skip over to the third row of vertical beads from the row where you started (row 1) and go to the other side of the band (bottom as you are holding the piece). Pass the needle through the vertical beads in that row from bottom to top, as shown in Figure 4-24, and pull up.

Each fringe strand is made by threading 35 khaki brown 11º beads, one gold disk, and 35 gold 11º seed beads. The more you twist the needle, the tighter the twist will be on the fringe. 4 For the strap, refer to the Potawatomi weave instructions, page 30, to make the band with both the gold and khaki brown 11º seed beads. 5 Once the woven strap is long enough to go over your head, attach it to the beaded cabochon at the upper corners by stitching through the strap into the edge of the cabochon until it feels secure.

Twisted Fringe Twisted fringe takes a little time to master. This method works best with seed beads and can be used anywhere you would use a fringe. 1 2 Thread on enough beads to get slightly longer than desired fringe length—in this example, 12 seed beads are strung—and follow with one or more decorative beads. Thread on an equal number of seed beads beyond the decorative beads (12 more). Push beads up tight against the work and needle up against last bead, as in Figure 3-28. Twist your needle around in a circular manner for several twists.
