Beaded bracelet with mesh
Tools and materials Time: 4 hours Difficulty: 5/10
- Beads 11/0;
- Bicones 4mm;
- Fishing line or thread for working with beads;
- Beaded needle.
A beaded bracelet with a mesh turns out to be voluminous due to the beads hidden inside. They give shape to the decoration and extra shine.
So, let’s be patient and go ahead for a new decoration for our beautiful pens!
Step 1: form the first row
We start by forming the first row. To do this, we string about 147 beads onto a long piece of thread (this amount is due to the fact that the length of the bracelet is formed). We send strung closer to the end of the segment. To make it more convenient, before starting work, you can fasten a so-called stop bead at the end of the line, which will fix the low on the line while you are forming the first row.
Step 2: weave the mesh blank
Next, we send a needle in 6 beads from the end of the low and tighten. Next, we string 5 more beads, and send them to the sixth, counting from the last step. So we repeat until the end is low, until you have a blank for the net in your hands.
For the next row, string 8 beads, and send a needle into 4 beads of the cell of the previous row. Repeat all these steps until you have 9 rows of such a grid.

We are on the way if you want:
- Set YOUR goals and achieve them
- Transform limiting beliefs into supportive ones
- Find yourself and your uniqueness
- Understand YOUR desires and values
- Make a choice
- Understand your strengths
- Resolve conflict situations in relationships.
Step 3: weave bicones
Now you can start forming the filling for the bracelet so that it keeps its shape well. For this, we use bicones, which are positioned as shown in the graph. Two rows of bicones should be enough for the bracelet to look level enough.
We begin to sew the blank with bicones, pulling the edges of the mesh.
Step 4: join the edges
As a result, it remains only to connect the edges of our bracelet together so as to get a closed circle. If you do not want a bracelet without a clasp, then at this stage you can just install it so that the bracelet is more convenient to put on and fasten on your hand.
That’s all, our beaded bracelet with mesh is ready. We hope our step-by-step master class with the weaving pattern was useful to you. Happy creativity!
Beaded bracelets. Schemes 2 Rhombus Grid Lesson 17.1.
We continue to analyze how to weave bracelets and beaded necklaces according to the "mesh" pattern. Today we will look at weaving a slightly wider bracelet than in the previous tutorial. There is a bracelet woven by my 2nd grade student Yulia.
Beaded bracelets. The beginning of weaving. Small 2-diamond grid.
For work we need beads of one or more colors of the same size. Take your workbook and redraw the diagram. Color it according to your desire. If a child weaves, then the key beads (1, 3, 7,11, etc.) can be highlighted in a different color, so that it would be easier to find them.
If you have already tried to weave a mesh, then you can apply an ornament to the scheme. Then your bracelet will look much more interesting. But you can weave a small piece like a pattern.
The thread can be taken 1.5 meters long. Works on one needle, as a rule, are woven with a shorter thread than with two. I think it’s understandable why: on two needles, the thread immediately folds in half and becomes half as short. To change the thread less often, you need to take it longer. But so long that it would be convenient to work and not to get confused in it.
1. We collect 12 beads according to our scheme. I have them all the same color. Yours can be colored differently.
2. Changing the direction of the thread, thread it into the fifth bead from bottom to top (see diagram).
3. We put on 3 beads (13-15) and continue to weave the row, thread into the first one. Beads from bottom to top.
4. Put 5 beads (16-20) on the reversal of the mesh. Change the direction of the thread again, go from top to bottom through 14 beads. It will be in the middle towards the diamond. If you look closely at the diagram, you will notice that the side of the rhombus consists of 3 beads. Therefore, we will wear 3 beads all the time (except for spreads). We put on 5 beads on the turn and top and bottom. Determine if this is a bracelet diagram or a necklace? If you are at a loss, then look carefully at the previous lesson.
Beaded bracelets. The beginning of weaving. Medium mesh.
Let’s see how the second scheme differs from the first? Of course, by the number of beads in the rhombus side. There are five of them. This means that the grid cell will be larger. The mesh will turn out to be more openwork, wider, it will be weaved faster, but the pattern on it will be more vague. Therefore, when creating a drawing, do not make, for example, strips of 1 bead – it will come out ugly.
If you want, you can make strips of 2 (or more) rows of beads in 1 strip.
1. We put on a string, 1.5-2 meters long, 18 beads.
2. Changing the direction, thread through the 7 beads from bottom to top, pull up the thread.
3. Put on 5 beads (19-23), thread into the first one.
4. Put 6 beads on the top turn (24-29). Changing direction, thread at 21 from top to bottom. 21 beads are also the middle of the rhombus side.
5. Put on 5 beads again (30-34), thread at 16. Since at the turn it can be difficult to determine the middle of the side, then you can calculate 2 beads from the key down. For example, having typed 5 beads (30-34), we look at the key (7), count down – to the right (in the course of weaving) 2 beads (18, 17). This means that the next one (16) needs to be threaded. We count in the same way on the upper reversal. If you find it difficult to find these beads, then paint them on the diagram in a different color. Then it will be easier to weave the pattern.
6. Put on 8 beads (35-42) on the bottom turn. Determine if this is a diagram of a necklace or bracelet?
7. Change the direction of threading again and thread the beads into 12 beads from bottom to top. Because it is difficult to count the beads further from the beginning of weaving, then just look for the middle one, towards the rhombus. She will be the one where you need to thread the needle.
8. We weave in this way as much as necessary.
Placement of the lock in the grid 2 rhombuses.
A lock on a 1.5 rhombus mesh is needed, if possible, another. Such locks are not with one ring, but with two or three. These rings are called "leads". The diagram shows a lock for 2 pins.
The lock is put in the same way as the net is woven.
1. Put on 4 beads on a thread, hook on the upper bow of the lock, return to the last one, of 4 beads.
2. Put on 2 beads, thread into the middle one. Just as if you were just weaving a net.
3. Put on 3 beads, thread into the lower arch of the lock, return to the last of the three.
4. Put on 3 beads and thread in the middle of the side. We go through the weaving and return to the starting point (not shown in the diagram). We pass the second time in the same way as the first, so that the lock was attached more securely.
5. After the second pass, we go along the weaving, tying knots. The mesh has many more options for passing the thread. (orange line) But make sure that the thread passes between those beads, between which it has already passed during weaving.
The answer to the question asked above: the first scheme is a beaded bracelet (upper and lower beads with the same number of beads), the second is a necklace (beads on the lower bead (8) are larger than on the upper one (6).
Bead mesh master class
With a properly executed bead mesh, a unique necklace or bracelet is created. When using beaded mesh, works are made in accordance with your fantasies. Therefore, people involved in needlework must definitely know what it is and how to make it.
Materials for work
For weaving bead products, you need to purchase certain materials:
- Sequins vary in shape, color palette and size. For creation, raw materials are used in the form of glass, mica or metal.
- Beads and buttons. Are presented on the market in a less extensive range.
- Seed beads are usually small bead-shaped beads that also differ in shape, palette, and price range.
- Wire or thread.
Some needlewomen prefer to use beading fishing line. But when using it, it should be understood that products from it can slightly bulge. Wire is used to stiffen, because its flexibility, tear resistance and rigidity are ideal for creating jewelry. If the bracelets are made without additional fastening, a rubber thread is used.
Bead mesh weaving process
At the beginning of work, you need to fix the bead, this kind of stopper. To do this, thread a thread through it twice and tighten.
To form the rhombuses that make up the mesh, you should pass the thread twice through the key points marked with beads of a different shade.
The first row of the net consists of loops connected by a common thread. Moving on to work on the second row, you should weave new and completed loops into a mesh by passing the thread through the beads at the corners of the rhombuses.
Repeating this simple sequence, weave the beaded mesh until the required size is reached.
Where is bead mesh used?
A common option is to create hand bracelets and necklaces. It is possible to weave bracelets of completely different shades to match with flowers and to match the necessary clothes.
A few tips for choosing a thread
Another equally important tip for those who do not want to embroider the mesh with stones. The optimal solution is a nylon thread, which doubles for strength. As a result, the product will not disintegrate if it breaks.
You should not use very large beads. The smaller the beads, the more delicate the product looks. Beads are identified by a number that corresponds to the diameter of the bead. Two beads of the same number can be of different thickness. By purchasing beads, you can find out in advance the permissible error.
Materials required during work:
Weaving pattern for 2 rhombus mesh.
The beginning of weaving.
We fasten the first red bead in the middle of the working thread.
Then we collect the beads in this order. 1 red, 2 black, 1 red, 2 black, 1 red, 2 black, 1 red, 5 black, 1 red, 2 black beads.
Draw the needle through the central red bead and collect 2 black, 1 red and 2 black beads.
Draw the needle through the first red bead of the previous row.
We collect a similar row. 2 black, 1 red and 2 black beads and bring out the needle as shown in
We collect a row in the same color scheme, bringing the needle through the next side red bead.
This time we collect 5 black, 1 red and 2 black beads and remove the needle before work, as shown in
Next row. 2 black, 1 red, 2 black beads.
We bring the needle to work, through the next side red bead.
By this principle, you can weave a network of any size you need.
One piece of advice if you do not need to expand the network, then it is better to weave with nylon thread folded in half. The beads will lie in even rows.
