I have never made anything with pinch beads so I thought I woud try this whimiscal woven design. They are really cute and wearable. The instructions show many steps, but I promise it's super easy. Try it!

Supplies you’ll need:

  • 1 strand of Czech glass pinch beads in cornflower blue (I listed a few other options)
  • 11/0 seed beads
  • Beadalon green wildfire cord .006 in.
  • ear wire
  • headpins
  • size 10 embroidery needle

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1

Cut 2' of cord for each woven bead. When you string your first set of beads on, place them 3/4 of the way onto the cord. There will be an end tail of cord sticking out. Continue by following the images shown.
