  3 Tips for Making Beaded Beads

Beading beads can become amazing designs and it's fun to try them, but if your total beginner maybe take it slow in creating your own beaded beads.

Here are some beginner tips:

Tip #1

We recommend comfort so use a stitching style that you are comfortable with. Simple stitches like a basic peyote stitch or ladder stitch is plenty for doing beaded beads. If you want a more advanced pattern then use a more complex stitch style as long as you're comfortable with it.

Tip #2

Make sure you start with an easy design before you move to a more difficult one. If you go for a complicated shape you can get quite frustrated, especially beginners. Make sure you become more accustomed with designing and making beaded beads and be patient and give it some time.

Tip #3

One last thing to remember is that when you are doing beaded beads, bigger is better when you're using beads. Using large beads makes it easier to do your stitching since the holes are larger. Once you're familiar with the stitching pattern, you can then take on the bigger challenge of stitching smaller beads.
