how to bead a shamrock ? ? Answered

Using head pins and heart glass beads so it will hold the shamrock shape to make it into a charm.



Thanks Rick...................couldn't find this. I'm ready to bead as St. Patty's day is on it's way!!!!

Yes long headpins will work great and allow you to create a nice loop at on end so it can hang from an earring or necklace.

Thank you for your answer. I am looking for instructions on how to do it. Not with a real shamrock, just heart beads and headpins.

You could also use some beading wire to tread the beads together. Several passes through the holes will give you a good strong hold. It may even be a good idea to loop the wire through the hole of a bead then back over top of the bead and back through the hole again on each bead to prevent it from spinning on you and loosing the shape you want to keep.

A real shamrock?

It will dry up your best best is to dry one and then cast in clear resin to make the bead.

Or make up a false one.
