Beaded Jewelry Tutorials for a Scientist?

By on Wednesday, February 21, 2018 2 Comments

Something about Sonysree Creations' beaded bracelet tutorial caught my attention.  I couldn't quite put my finger on the why for a while.  It is a lovely and simple design for those who want a quick project. And it has a contemporary look about it. Then I realized what it was!  The seed bead sections look like erlenmeyer or conical flasks which are found in laboratories!  This design will be perfect for a scientist!


This designer uses monofilament (fishing line) which is trickier to use than the typical beading threads like Fireline. She explained why, "I had lots of problems with monofilament when I was started working with it. I love work with Fireline, Wildfire etc . But those threads are more expensive, I can't afford it. I don't want stop beading because of thread. Beading is my passion. So I started loving monofilament . "Something is better than nothing " .. Now I can manage with monofilament..we are good friends now ...( except peyote stitch)".

It is a versatile design as you can use either 11/0 or 10/0 seed beads.  If you prefer 10/0 seed beads and can't find these locally, check this source.



And here is the necklace version.  Note how she added extra large beads to help the design curve more.
