Question Lazy Stitch Beadwork

Waxuygi,

I'm a self-taught beader, and now I need help. How in the world is lazy stitch beadwork sewn into leather? Any advice would greatly be appreciated.

Huya,
Jim

It isn't that tuff to do, just kinda run the needle through the top layers of the hide and not all the was through it. It takes a little practice to make sure you have it deep enough, but you will get the hang of it quickly.

Hope that helps

Also try beading with Sharps beading needles and not the regular long ones...that always helps with beading onto or through leather. CCTW sells them I believe and so should most bead stores. They are shorter and sharp (lol).

Oh yeah this is Blackbear...must have signed on using hubby's screen...this is his name.

okay, what is --->CCTW ? okay i bead but i have a question, what is "A" thread ? i have been using artificial sinew but my eye in my wire sized beading needle is way to tiny. my solution for that is to take a larger needle and poke the hole of my bead needle a little larger with the point of the larger needle. (plus any tips on pulling apart artificial sinew? when i pull a peice off if gets all caught up and knoted up and thats a bummer.)

cctw was meant to be cctp.. crazy crow trading post. A thread is the size, size A. pulling apart artificial sinew just takes patience, it does the same thing to me if I go too fast.

To expand on Blackbear's words: Nymo (Belding Corticelli's brand name for nylon thread) is sized by letters and numbers. F is the thickest commonly available. F or D is a good size for 11/0 beads. B works well with 13/0's and 00 with antique 18/0-20/0's.

Nymo has to be waxed to help cut down wear and help fill the bead hole. Ironing or a few seconds in the mircowave can cut down balling up of wax between the beads. Spools of Nymo should be stored away from direct sunlight, since UV light can break the polymer chains.

re: seperating sinew
like blackbear said, it just takes a lil' patience to seperate - i use synthetic sinew to sew my caribou hair tuftings.
* i rub it together - towards the end and slowly part - using the 'natural' parts in the sinew, so it doesn't lessen the strength.
i noticed that the one i use 'seperates' better then some other kinds. with mine i can get 4 strands outta one - and i forgot the name of the brand i use ... dang it ...
* good luck with your sewing

The quickest and easiest way to get any kind of beadwork onto leather is to bead on your favorite material....i.e. canvas, baby bedding backing stuff or whatever, then sew it onto the leather with a heavy duty saddle making sewing machine. Seems like it would break the beads, but it doesn't.............worked for me!
