Re: How To Make a Gingham Bead

I'm baaaaackk, that was fun. Of course I was too lazy to pull the periwinkle stringer, but how cool was that to watch all the colors come together! The picture is of the good side, the other side is really bad! Thanks SO MUCH for sharing!

Re: How To Make a Gingham Bead

Karen - that's wonderful! <sniff,sniff> I kinda feel like a grandma...

You know the other side that's a little goofy? Slap a raised flower over the messed up parts!!

Re: How To Make a Gingham Bead

Aw Teri, this is so fabulous! I was wondering how you got the intermediate colors. All I could think up was blended colors and tricky stuff - as I gaze at the 3 looms, 1 spinning wheel and 2 knitting machines in my studio. :-) I was totally incumbered by understanding how they weave gingham! This is great! Thanks so very very much! ~Juliet (...who is down to the last of the bulk propane and hopes she has enough to play tonight before getting the bugger refilled tomorrow!)

Re: How To Make a Gingham Bead

Thanks Teri I had to run right out and try it. I have admired your ginham beads and asked Anne of AMR if she had any ideas or if you might post a tutorial. So you made my day.
Of course I don't have any thick stringer of a single color in light and dark so I used full rods I have 2 greens that are similiar in color. I did have a thick white stringer. So here is my first of hopefully many attempts.

Re: How To Make a Gingham Bead

Good idea! I'll remember that next time. Thanks again for your wonderful tutorial, I'm pretty new to the art and trying to soak up as much information as possible.

Re: How To Make a Gingham Bead

Lisa! I'm so impressed - you did a terrific job - especially since you used full-sized rods. I pull my own stringers, except for white, so that's how I get matching colors in stringer form.

Re: How To Make a Gingham Bead

Whoo Hoo! I just made a bunch (practicing ya know) I'll post pictures in the AM - oh, later AM - after I sleep some that is. They're in the kiln now annealing. Thanks so much for the fabulous directions Teri! It really does work! Now all I need to do is get my dot placement and sizing more uniform! Yours are so amazingly uniform! THanks! ~Juliet

Lisa S., what in the heck happened to your mandrel? I get dizzy just looking at it, let alone thinking about making a bead on it.

Great job by the way. I really like them - and that's saying a lot because I usually don't care for the color green, but you make it work.
