This hyacinth beaded box design is available exclusively in my ebook, ‘How to Make Beaded Boxes.’ So, if you want to make this project, please follow this link to purchase a copy of the ebook. It is sold as a download, or on CD-Rom. So, you get video demonstrations of all the techniques. Plus, you can print out pages if you wish.
This project uses the following beads:
- Size 10 delicas
- Size 11 Delicas
The ebook includes information about where you can buy supplies.
Then, in addition to the beads, you will need your favourite beading thread. My preferred choice is Fireline, but you don’t have to follow that. Just use something that gives you good tension.
Experience and Techniques
The hyacinth beaded box is made mostly in Peyote stitch. So, you will be using a combination of variations. But don’t worry – I have demonstrated all of them on videos. I have also created detailed videos to show you how to make the flowers, which use a variety of basic techniques.
I would suggest this project is suitable for intermediate and beyond. But if you are just starting out and you’re prepared to learn some new things, then give it a go!
About the hyacinth beaded box
When I was planning the designs for this ebook, I knew I wanted to include a hyacinth. I had already decided on a theme of flower pots for all the projects. (So, this hyacinth is just one of seven different designs included in the book).
I have created a very adaptable design here. So, you might choose to explore my more advanced option, adding four separate flowers to your beaded box. Or, you can keep things simple and just make the one, single flower in the pot.
So, I hope that will inspire you to grab a copy of the ebook. But if flower pots aren’t your thing, I have over 50 other beaded box designs you can check out here.
