January 2007 Beaded Ball Necklace Project

You can find a variety of Free Arts and Craft Project here, including beaded project and other project. This month's project is a beaded ball necklace made with Japanese seed beads using the Right Angle Weave technique (RAW). Great as a fashion accessory or as a jewelry gift.

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

Beaded Ball Necklace :

What you need:

1)    Glass seed beads size 11/0 (silver white and purple) 
2)    Beading string (0.25mm)
3)    Jewelry clasp (1 set)

Step 1: Always Remember to pull tight on EVERY STEP.

Small Size Ball:

  • Follow step 1 to 6 on this link page and make 2 small balls of silver white color beads and 2 small balls of purple color beads (total of 4 balls)
Step 2: Medium Size Ball:
  • Cut a piece of beading string around half a meter long. Add on 5 beads on the center of the string and crisscross the other side of the string through the last added bead, pull tight and make sure the piece is at the center of the string.
Step 3:
  • Take the left (black) end of the thread and add on 5 beads, crisscross the other end through the last added bead. Continue to pass the black end of the thread through the bead on it's side from step 2 (shown where the black arrow is coming out from).
Step 4:
  • Take the red end of the thread, add on 4 beads, crisscross the other end through the last added bead, continue to pass the red end through 1 bead from step 2 (shown where the red arrow is coming out of).
Step 5:
  • Repeat step 4 exactly 2 more times and follow by the last bead circle of this step:
    Take the black end of the thread, add on 3 beads and crisscross the other thread through the last added bead. Follow by passing the black thread through the one bead beside - shown where the black arrow is coming out of.
