August 2009 Beaded Pig Charm Project.

You can find a variety of Free Arts and Craft Project here, including beaded tutorials and other project. This month's project is a beaded 3D pig piglet charm, made with Japanese glass seed beads using right angle weave Beading technique.

The pictorials are illustrated with spaces between beads for a clearer direction, in the actual beading, there should be no spaces.

Beaded Pig Charm :

What you need:

1)   Glass seed beads, size 11/0 (white, pink, red
and black)       You can use any bead size or even crystals to create    
      this beaded pig and customize to your desired size, as  
      long as you make one with all the same size of beads 
      or crystal. (tip: if you want a more adorable look 
      increase the black bead (eyes) size by one size when 
      you bead)

2)   Beading string (0.25mm) (a short wire for the tail)

Always Remember to pull tight on EVERY STEP.
