  • beaded champagne glasses

    Hello all,
    I saw sometime ago some beaded champagne/wine glasses where the stem part of the glasses were beaded... like probably in either wrap stitch or peyote or tube stitch of some kind... but anyways... I was just wondering if any of you know how to do this or have seen it done anywhere online... I have searched and searched until I'm blue in the face and can not find the picture that I found before....
    My Mother is getting married next month to an awesome native guy and I want to bead them some champagne glasses for them to toast with.
    any help would be greatly appreciated!

        thanks alz...
        I still can't figure it out... I have found several other pictures online but no instruction.
        I cant figure out if they used peyote or what.. I tried peyote but good grief is it ever hard when you arent starting your stitch on something... if there was a way I could wrap the stems in something first than bead them... but theres just no way

          I saw some on eBay that were just wrapped.

          If you're going to wrap the stem with something, just make sure it's not affected by water.

          I've seen salt and pepper shakers that are beaded right on the glass, so I think that might be a better way to go.

          If you don't want to use gourd stitch (what most people call peyote), you can use the peyote stitch - which kind of looks like gourd on edge, and instead of going back through the beads, you go back through the previous row's stitching.

          I know that's clear as mud, so I'll try to find pics.

            Hi Creekfairy
            I have already seen a small decorated glass with beads. A copper thread was used on which were made to pass the beads. The thread was, hand hand, wound around the edge. As don't seem me really the seam Peyote is used in the glass of the photo, probably, this technique is used and the beginning and the end of the copper thread fixed to the stem with some heat glue.
            I hope this can be you useful

                Those glasses look awesome! And that's some good directions for tubular gourd stitch.

                  This is some nice 2 drop gourd stitch on glass. You can almost see they put something (maybe tape?) on the glass under the beading....probably just to keep it from slipping.

                      I know this is late in the posting but I was totally surprised to see my lavender champagne flutes in this string! I own Triple Willow Gift Gallery.com

                      I do not peyote stitch the whole glass stem. Even with drop stitching it can get irregular and uneven. I also incorporate some lazy wrap stitch. It took me a few years to finally figure out all the little tricks to make each and every glass come out perfect.

                      I compliment you on your taking time to learn how to do it yourself! However, if ya'll find something you like in my pages, let me know and I'll be glad to give you a discount!

                      Good luck to you and I hope your mom's wedding is perfect!

                        Wow, how cool! I don't expect you to give out all your secrets since it's your livelihood, but can you tell us if you put anything on the glass before beading it?

                          Hi, i am the guilty one of the insertion of the photo. I apologize me not to have revealed the name of the Triple Willow Gift Gallery but, at the time, I had saved the photo really for the particularity of the job but I had not saved the data. You compliment for the technique and the taste in the colors however.

                            I am complimented that you posted the pic so no apology necessary! I am just pleased that you like them!

                            I do not put anything on the glass except in rare cases when the stem is irregular in some way. Then I might add glue under the row to make sure it doesn't curl - but usually, that is not needed. The bead work will turn freely on the stem even though it is on tight.

                            Yes, the glasses are a big part of how I make my living ... but don't worry about it being a secret! lol! Anyone can learn to do this on their own so there isn't a reason for me not to help.

                            I don't normally do native american designs in the peyote parts because I can't follow through with the design always. When I find a good straight stem, then I do. Otherwise, I make it up - usually with weddings in mind.
