May 2010 Beaded 3D Shoe Charm Project

You can find a variety of Free Arts and Craft Project here, including beaded project and other project. This month, I would like to feature the instruction on a beaded 3D shoe charm made with Japanese glass seed beads, using right angle weave beading technique.

Beaded 3D Shoe Charm

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

Step 19: Continue to:
  • You should now have the shoe shape basically finished.
  • Turn the shoe top (with opening) to face you.
    From where you stopped at step 18, continue to add new beads (shown by the brown beads in the diagram) in between each old beads on your beaded shoe piece.
  • Add three new silver beads (represented by green beads) as the shoe lace stripe on one side of the string and tie off. Pass the excess string back through the finished piece for a more secure final piece.
  • Take a jump ring, open it with pliers and add it to the position where you added bead in step 18, close the jump ring or add charm or pendants or earring hooks to it.
  • I made a pair to hang as a charm, you can repeat step 1 to step 19 to make another one and you can have a pair too!
