DIY Jewelry Making with bead stitching on knitted wire and Jesse James Beads7 I love using golds and browns in my bead stitching designs. They are easy to mix and match with other colors, especially with your outfit. I’m going to show you how to create this bracelet using fun and simple bead stitching techniques with gold and brown Jesse James Beads and SilverSilk capture knitted wire chain. Additionally, I’ll be showing you a cool new and easy sewing technique to add texture to this design…as if there wasn’t enough with those gorgeous beads! DIY Jewelry Making with bead stitching on knitted wire and Jesse James Beads3 Start with 2 feet of knitted wire and 3 feet of Fireline thread. Thread a bead stitching needle and sew up through the knitted wire, near the end. Pick up 1 small shell chip, 3 brown-lined aqua seed beads (if you’ve bought the kit for this project, this is the smaller size seed bead – aka size 11), 1 brown Picasso seed bead (larger size, aka size 8), one copper seed bead (size 8), another 1 brown Picasso seed bead, and finally another 3 brown-lined aqua seed beads.

Then switch the pattern to 1 brown-lined aqua seed bead (smaller size), 1 bronze dagger and another 1 brown-lined aqua seed bead.
