Huichol flower Tutorial

Friday, November 08, 2013 Viridiana Diaz Padilla 35 Comments



Hello there!

First of all so sorry for my awfull manicure but I had waited for some spare time to make this tutorial and I had to choose between having my nails done or making it and Voila !

I'll make a very short explanation for each photo, this to avoid making it too complicated. But if any doubt just let me know :)

For this one I choose to use 4 different colours, light orange, orange, red and black, once you can learn the pattern you can make any number of colours and combinations.
 

Start with a stop bead (just pass the needle twice trough the same bead leaving 5 cm of tread)




 
Add 11 beads more to make 12 total
 
And close in a circle
 
Add 5 light orange beads and go through 2 black beads
 Pull tight, and you will have your first 5 beads loop
 
Add 3 more beads and go back through the last 2 orange beads and through 2 more black beads.
Keep adding 3 beads at the time and going back 2 beads each time until you close the circle, in the very last loop you will only add one bead since you will have the last 2 and the very first 2 you put at the beginning of the circle, when you finish it should look like this:

 
Go to the top of your loop and on the second bead add 5 dark orange beads
 
Jump one bead and go back down, and without going into the black beads come back up through the next 2 light orange beads.
Finish the circle.
 
Once you finish the circle go back through the first 2 dark orange beads until you are back at the top.
 
Add five red beads, jump over one orange and go through the next one
 
This time you are not at the bottom, you are coming out trough middle of the 2 dark orange beads
 
Add one dark orange bead a black and another orange bead.

  Then go through the opposite middle bead and finish at the top again.
 
Add 5 red beads and repeat untill you finish the circle again

It should look like this:
Now go to the top through the first 2 red beads
 Add 5 black beads, jump the next red bead and go through the one right after.
Add 3 red beads and go through the black middle bead, when you come out. Add 3 more and go to the  next petal going through the same bead you just did on the last one


 Add 5 more black beads and repeat untill you finish the circle
 Now it should look like this:

 Add 3 black beads and go to the next red corner bead
 Add one more black bead and go to the opposite corner
 Add 3 more beads and go all the way through untill you reach the end of the petal (3 blck beads). Sorry the photo doesn show me going trough 3 just 1 but you do 3 :)
 Repeat the last step untill you finish the circle
  and you have Finished!
This flower is the base to make lots of different earrings necklaces and bracelets you just need to use your imagination and any colour combination you want.

Un poco de todo!

Hello everyone!

Its been more than two months since my last post, and my only excuse is that I've been very busy beading away. Today I had my last craft fair of the season. I know the season is just starting but I’ve been selling so many things, that I haven’t been able to keep up maintaining my stock, so now I will take a bit of a break to go back to what I love the most, just Beading!.

What a week

Wednesday, April 17, 2013 Viridiana Diaz Padilla 3 Comments


Last week was a very busy week, nothing special, just that raising two kids as a single mum (husband went to Paris for a week and I was alone). There's nothing like some time apart to realise how much he helps around :)

On top of that my best friend went on holidays to Colombia, no way to call her to come and give me a hand or just to have a coffee :) Im sure she is having a great time.

On Wednesday I sold my favourite piece on Etsy, the one that I secretly didn’t really want to sell. It's a piece that I liked to list in order to attract more people to the shop. I call it the "Deer necklace" and it's my "masterpiece". I love when people stopped just to admire it, in a few words it was my eye catching piece. When it was sold I was actually really sad - but just for a little while. I've already started creating a new one and its almost already finished:)

A Beautiful Day!

Sunday, April 07, 2013 Viridiana Diaz Padilla 1 Comments

Well what else can I ask for. The sun is shinning, there is no wind and the thermometer has at last gone over 10 degrees. We're eating camarones a al diabla, (devil prawns) a family recipe, and sipping margaritas - like my father in law often says “this is the life”.

Maybe over sharing? Well I'll tell you why, today the Bumblebead (I mean me) had it's first display stall at the HK &SD Country Market. It was great to meet lots of nice people and to see lots of nice products. I only got to see a few stalls (someone had to stay and watch mine) Two stalls to the right there was a chilli jam stall, and as a good Mexican I brought some home, mmm delicioso! I also got fresh prawns, 2 flower pots and some hot Spanish sausages. I really wanted to get a few greeting cards and some fruit jam, but I left it to the end and didn't have time to buy some - maybe next time. Lovely craft fair, if you live on the area, you should really check it out.

Last Sunday I was supposed to have a stall at a local craft fair, but due to the typical English spring (ie. Snow and extreme cold) it was unfortunately cancelled. However, this wasn't all bad as it meant that I could stay home and enjoy myself making more Easter eggs!

The technique I used was the same as last time, just with different patterns. The pink egg is a little different at it used Peyote stitch. 

I'd love to hear what you think, and if you want to try to make your own just let me know if you have any questions!

Beaded Easter eggs

Thursday, March 14, 2013 Viridiana Diaz Padilla 0 Comments


In Mexico we don't celebrate Easter like here in the UK, the main difference being that we don't have chocolate eggs or Easter bunnies. But as they say, when in Rome, do as the Romans.


So, here they are, my Easter inspired beaded Easter eggs! Let me know what you think of this one, which is "work in progress"!

I think that my blog is ready to be presented to the world!

I've been working on it for about 3 weeks now, so why did it take so long? Well I must say I’ve been fairly distant from the tech world for a few years now and I had no idea how to make a blog, especially in English, which isn’t my first language. But one click here and one click there it just started flowing. 

I'm still learning and aim to add new sections, pictures and posts in the future, but for now, please have a look around and let me know what you think. Remember, if you like any of the patterns just ask.

Sunday almost midnight and here I am, all happy and exited since I just had my first Etsy sale, I have also been working on some photo gallerues, now you can also see some of my bracelets, perhaps next weekend I'll finish uploading the necklaces.

My blog is still a work-in progress and I've been waiting before I send a link to all my friends, so it's a bit lonely still, but soon perhaps one more week? I'll do my best, in the mean time if you end up reading this, well congratulations, you found it!

Thank you so much for your visit, don’t forget to leave a comment!
