Beaded Daisy String Tutorial

These are so fun! A strand of beaded daisy flowers separated by a string of beads. You can use this technique to make bracelets, anklets, necklaces, eyeglass straps and probably more items. 

Beaded Daisies on a String Tutorial

I think this is the simplest of the beaded daisy chains and teaches the basics of stitching back through beads to make a pattern. That makes it a great beading stitch for beginner's of all age to learn. It was my first introduction to working with beads - even if I didn't do the stitch quite right back then.

For reference, I re-learned this stitch the right way from the book Indian Bead-Weaving Patterns by Horace R. Goodhue. It's not the easiest bead pattern book to follow, but it is one of the most comprehensive compilations of Native American bead techniques. If you are interested in the book, I recommend you review this article on Native American Technique for Daisy Chain Stitch where I talk about it in more detail.
