We want to tell a simple, cheap and, most importantly, fast way to create satin beads by hand.
Online shops offer a wide range of satin ribbons of different colors. For our necklaces, we chose a brown dot satin ribbon.
• brown dot satin ribbon,
• wood or any other beads,
• brown beads Pearl (they need one bead larger than the wood beads)
• Daisy Spacer Metal Beads (2 for each bead, so they need a 2-fold greater than the beads)
• dark brown waxed cord.
Cut off from the satin ribbon N equal pieces, where N = diameter beads + Seam.
Sew the edge pieces, using a sewing machine or by hand with a needle and thread. Sew edge so as to obtain a hollow cylinder into which you can insert a bead. To the edges do not crumble, hold the edges of the fabric over the fire lighters.
Take a needle and thread, sew and contractible seam one of the cylinder bases. Put a bead into the cylinder.
Similarly, contractible the second seam of the cylinder bases. Result is neat satin beads.
Collect the beads on a string.
