Beaded chair


Today we will make a beaded chair.
We will need:
- size 8 seed beads of two colors (I used seed beads of lime-green and blue-lilac colors);
- 70 сm of wire 0.3 mm thick.


Start weaving and string 4 blue beads on the wire. Place the set of beads on the middle of the wire.

Hold two beads at one end of the wire and cross the other end of the wire through them.

Tighten the wire so that the beads stay approximately on the middle of the wire (but there is no need in exact accuracy, it will be even better if one end of the wire is 10 сm longer than the other one). As a result we've got the first two rows of beads.



Then string 7 green beads on any end of the wire

and cross the other end of the wire through these beads.

Tighten the wire placing this third row of beads so that it forms a circle over the first row.

Again string 7 green beads on any end of the wire and cross the other end of the wire through these beads.

Tighten the wire carefully placing the fourth row under the second row. As a result the third and the fourth rows of beads have formed a circle around the first two rows.

Next, string 5 blue, 11 green and 1 more blue beads on the longer end of the wire.

Hold the last blue bead and pass this wire backwards through all the green beads.

Tighten the wire carefully, moving all the beads close to the beadwork. As a result the beads have formed a needle that is a chair leg.

Again string 5 blue, 11 green and 1 more blue beads on the same end of the wire.

Hold the last blue bead and pass this wire backwards through all the green beads.

Tighten the wire carefully, moving all the beads close to the beadwork. We've got a beaded needle that is the second chair leg.

Next, cross the other end of the wire through 10 blue beads from the last two sets that are situated on one line.

Tighten the wire, placing these blue beads is a circle over the third row.

Then take the end of the wire that goes from the chair leg and string 5 blue, 11 green and 1 more blue beads on it.

Again hold the last blue bead and pass this end of the wire backwards through all the green beads. Then tighten the wire carefully moving all the beads close to the beadwork. As a result we have got the third chair leg.

After that string 11 green and 1 blue beads on the other end of the wire.

Hold the last blue bead and pass this end of the wire backwards through all the green beads. Then tighten the wire carefully moving all the beads close to the beadwork and getting the fourth chair leg.

Next, string 2 blue beads on one end of the wire and 3 blue beads on the other end of the wire.

Take the end of the wire with 2 beads and cross it through the last blue bead on the other end of the wire.

Tighten the wire carefully. Thus we have formed the last segment of the chair seat.

Now we need to make the chair back. String 9 blue beads on one end of the wire and 10 blue beads on the other end of the wire.

Take the end of the wire with 9 beads and cross it through the last blue bead on the other end of the wire.

Tighten the wire.

Next, string 13 green beads on any end of the wire

and pass this end of the wire through the 3 of 5 blue beads in the last segment of the chair seat in direction from the nearest chair leg.

Then string 13 green beads on the other end of the wire

and pass this end of the wire through the remaining 2 of 5 blue beads in the last segment of the chair seat in direction from the second back chair leg.

Weaving is completed. Twist together both ends of the wire

and cut them off. Bend the wire tip and hide it under the chair seat.

Now give a shape to the chair, bending chair legs at a normal-angle to the seat.

The beaded chair is finished!
