April 2006 Beaded Easter Egg Ornament

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 Easter egg that can be turned into an Easter Ornament, pendant, earrings or charm.

Beaded Easter Egg Ornament

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

Beaded Easter Egg

What you need:

1)    Beads, Crystals or Pearls (size 3mm and above - depends on what   
       size you want your eggs to be - use larger beads for larger eggs)
2)    Beading string (nylon or wire) 0.25mm

Step 1: Before you start, always remember to pull tight on every step.
Cut a piece of thread around a meter long.
String on 6 beads. Cross both ends of the thread at the last added bead as shown.
Remember to balance out both end of the threads - both end of the thread should be the same length and your beaded ring should be at the middle of the thread.
Step 2: On the left (black) string, add on four beads. 
On the right (red) string, cross this string though the last bead added on the left string.
Pass the black string through the second bead on the right of the beaded ring from step one as shown in the picture.
Step 3: Almost similar to step 2, 
On the left (red) string, add on three beads. 
On the right (black) string, cross this string though the last bead added on the left string.
Pass the red string through the next adjoining bead on the right of the beaded ring from step one as shown in the picture.
Step 4: Repeat step 3 three more times and this step will show you how to bead the last circle.
On the left (red) string, add on two beads. 
On the right (black) string, cross this string though the last bead added on the left string.
Pass the red string through the next adjoining bead on the right of the beaded ring from step 2 as shown in the picture.
Step 5: This step is similar with step 2.
On the left (black) string, add on four beads. 
On the right (red) string, cross this string though the last bead added on the left string.
Pass the black string through the adjoining two beads on the right as shown in the picture.
Step 6: I'll go faster now, now you'll be repeating something similar to step 3 and 4.
Add 3 beads on each beaded circle until you reached the last circle where you are joining up. Then add 2 beads and pass the right string through the last added bead, follow by passing the (red) left string through the adjoining bead from the first bead circle from step 5 as shown in the picture.
After pulling tightly you should see a half sphere forming.
Step 7: I am only showing the picture for the top two beads of the half sphere, from step 6.
Continuing from where you left off at step 6;
On the left (black) string, add on three beads. 
On the right (red) string, cross this string though the last bead added on the left string.
Pass the black string through the adjoining two beads on the right from the beaded half sphere from step 6 as shown in the picture.

Then:
On the left (red) string, add on two beads. 
On the right (red) string, cross this string though the last bead added on the left string.
Pass the black string through the adjoining two beads on the right from the beaded half sphere from step 6 as shown in the picture. Repeat this until you reached the joining bead circle, where you would add one last bead and crisscross the string as shown (where the two arrows are)

Continue to pass the string on the right (red but changed to green so that you can see better) through the top bead of the first bead circle on this step as shown where the green line passes through.

Pull tight and you will see almost a full sphere forming.
Step 8: For the last step of joining up to form the top tip of the egg.

From where you ended from step 7, on the left (black) string, add two beads (represented by green bead), cross the right (red) string through the last added bead and pass the black string through the next adjoining two beads on the right from step 7.
Next, add one last bead on the left (red) string, cross the right (black) string through this bead and pass the red string through the next adjoining two beads on the right from step 7, continue to pass this same string through the first (green) bead added on this step.

Pull tightly and tie off, you can hide the string and re-enforce your beaded egg by passing the strings back through the piece (without any specific order) after the tying off.
