  • Learn the Ropes With These Free Beaded Rope Projects

    For most of us, our introduction to beaded ropes came by way of making tubular versions of our favorite off-loom bead-weaving stitches, or by creating a classic spiral rope.

  • Why We Love 2-hole Glass Beads

    From Jennifer: When I started learning how to bead 14 years ago, 2-hole beads were something of a rarity. The only glass beads with two holes that I could find were vintage Czech and German, and since they weren't that common, I would snap them up. The problem was, even though they were gorgeous...

  • Two-drop Variations of Favorite Bead-weaving Stitches - Peyote Stitch, Square Stitch, and Herringbone Stitch

    Want to bead faster? Try doubling the number of beads strung with each stitch. Known as “two-drop,” this technique treats two beads as one, as in “string 1 bead (now actually string 2 beads) and pass through 1 (now 2) bead(s).” Keep in mind that it can change the structural integrity...
