Want to bead faster? Try doubling the number of beads strung with each stitch. Known as "two-drop," this technique treats two beads as one, as in "string 1 bead (now actually string 2 beads) and pass through 1 (now 2) bead(s)." Keep in mind that it can change the structural integrity of the work, possibly creating open spaces.
Required Materials: Seed beads, beading thread. See project for complete list.
Tools Needed: Beading needle, scissors. See project for complete list.
Techniques Used: Two-drop (herringbone, square, and peyote) stitch
