We have a fabulous new collection of bead strands featuring bee shapes and honeycombs.
Our strands are available in seven different colors.
Danielle Wickes has created a new project that showcases the bee strands.
A Spiral of Bees!
Create a swarm of Honey Bees around your wrist with this fun spin on Russian Spiral!
Part 1 of this Step-by-Step is a review of Russian Spiral Stitch. There are a lot of great tutorials and videos out there for how to do Russian Spiral stitch. The method I chose for this design is based on a technique I learned from Kitti Robinson Designs.
I have modified the method she shows in the video, substituting size 6/0 seed beads for the 4mm beads.
Part 2 of this Step-by-Step shows how the strand of Bees and Honeycombs are tacked onto the spiral for a swirl effect.
This design would make a beautiful necklace as well as a bracelet. Many other ideas to modify and create variations are possible. Have fun and share your gorgeous creations with us on social media!
