Bead decorated glasses.
This project uses even count tubular peyote stitch decreasing as you go up as the glass thins and increasing as it gets wider. The amount of rocailles you use will depend on the width of the glass.

FINISHING OFF AND ADDING NEW THREAD When you start running out of thread simply weave the remaining thread back through the piece knotting at various points until you run out. Trim any excess. To add a piece of thread, prepare your needle with another length of thread. Weave through the piece in the same way, again, knotting as you go. Weave through until you reach the point where you left off.

  • How to make a glass. Decorated Champagne Flutes - Step 1
    Step 1

    Prepare your needle with about 300cm of nymo loom thread doubled up to make 150cm length. Pick up enough beads (an even number) to go round the base of your champagne flute. Tie in a double knot around the glass leaving a tiny gap between the first and last bead in the circle. Take the needle back through the first bead once more.

    Pick up one bead and let it sit above the next bead along. Then take the needle through the third bead along from the start of the initial row of beads. Continue along the row in this way until you arrive back at the first bead added.

    To step up, take the needle through both the first bead of the initial row and the first bead of this row to move up to the next row to be added. Continue adding rows in this way until you need to decrease to fit with the thinning stem.

    To decrease simply take the needle across the gap without adding a bead and thread into the next bead along. Pull firmly to close the gap.

    On the next row, when you reach the decrease, place one bead over the gap where the decrease occurred. Pull tightly. Continue up the flute, decreasing when you need to.

    When you reach the point where the glass begins to widen, you will need to start increasing. Work the peyote stitch as normal but, where you want the increase, pick up two beads instead of one.

    On the next row, take the thread through the first of the two beads added. Thread on another bead and then take the needle through the second bead added. Continue up the flute, increasing as you need to, until you reach the top.

    To add the top tassels pick up one glass bead and one rocaille. Pass the bead back through the glass bead and then through the rocaille to the right of the tassel on the top row. Continue adding beads all the way round the top. Finish off as described by weaving through the completed peyote tube, knotting as you go.

    To add the bottom tassels prepare your needle with 300cm of thread doubled up. Weave the thread down through a few rows of the completed peyote tube, knotting as you go, until you come out of a bottom rocaille. Add the tassels as you did the top ones but on each tassel add 5 rocailles before you pick up your glass bead and final rocaille. When you have gone all the way round finish off as before.
