Swarovski Crystal Bicone Woven Puffed Heart


Materials:

72 Swarovski Crystal 4mm Bicones + 1 if adding a hanger

Fuchsia - 21

Rose - 15

Lt Rose - 14

Rosaline - 12

Crystal AB - 10

Swarovski Crystal Rounds one 8mm & two 6mm or three 6mm

Monofilament Illusion Cord


Notes:

Use 50" of monofilament

To get some of the curl out of the monofilament, hold line at each end and gently stretch and hold for a second or two.

Passing line through Beeswax will help beads hang on while working the pattern.

Keep tension on both lines while working to hold the shape of the piece.

While working the pattern the line will cross through one bead. When the ends of the line cross through the bead, the left thread becomes the right, and the right line becomes the left. Be sure to change the placement of the thread from left to right and right to left and keep the piece the same side up. L to R/R to L in the steps is a reminder to switch the sides of the line.

The term pass through is used when you pass the line through a previously strung bead. Be sure to use the correct line when passing through.


Start:




1.String beads 1,2, 3,4 to center of line - cross through #4. (L to R/R to L) pull gently.

2. #5 on R line, #6 on L line. Add #7 - cross through (L to R/R to L) pull to shape.

3. #8 on R line, #9 on L line. Add #10 - cross through (L to R/R to L) pull to shape.

4. #11 & #12 on R line. Add #13 - cross through (L to R/R to L) pull to shape. Turning corner

5. #14 & #15 on R line. Add #16 - cross through (L to R/R to L) pull to shape.

6. Pass L line through #9. #17 on R line. Add #18 - cross through (L to R/R to L) pull to shape.

7. Pass L line through #6. #19 on R line. Add #20 - cross through (L to R/R to L) pull to shape.

8. Pass L line through #3 & #1. Add #21 - cross through (L to R/R to L) pull to shape. This begins the point of the heart. Be sure to make the beads fold towards the back of heart.

9. String #22 on R line, #23 on L line. Add #24 - cross through (L to R/R to L) pull to shape.

10. String #25 on R line, #26 on L line. Add #27 - cross through (L to R/R to L) pull to shape.

11. String #28 & #29 on R line. Add #30 - cross through (L to R/R to L) pull to shape. Turning corner

12. String #31 & #32 on R line. Add #33 - cross through (L to R/R to L) pull to shape.

13. Pass L line through #26. #34 on R line. Add #35 - cross through (L to R/R to L) pull to shape.

14. Pass L line through #23 & #2. Pull to back as before. Add #36 - cross through (L to R/R to L) pull to shape.





15. Pass L line through #5. #37 on R line. Add #38 - cross through (L to R/R to L) pull to shape.

16. Pass L line through #8. #39 on R line. Add #40 - cross through (L to R/R to L) pull to shape.

17. Pass L line through #11. #41 on R line. Add #42 - cross through (L to R/R to L) pull to shape.

18. Pass L line through #12. #43 on R line. Add #44 - cross through (L to R/R to L) pull to shape.

19. Pass L line through #14. #45 on R line. Add #46 - cross through (L to R/R to L) pull to shape.

20. Pass L line through #15. #47 on R line. Add #48 - cross through (L to R/R to L) pull to shape.

21. Pass L line through #17. #49 on R line. Add #50 - cross through (L to R/R to L) pull to shape.

22. Pass L line through #19 & #22. Add #51 - cross through (L to R/R to L) pull to shape.

23. Pass L line through #25. #52 on R line. Add #53 - cross through (L to R/R to L) pull to shape.

24. Pass L line through #28. #54 on R line. Add #55 - cross through (L to R/R to L) pull to shape.

25. Pass L line through #29. #56 on R line. Add #57 - cross through (L to R/R to L) pull to shape.

26. Pass L line through #31. #58 on R line. Add #59 - cross through (L to R/R to L) pull to shape.

27. Pass L line through #32. #60 on R line. Add #61 - cross through (L to R/R to L) pull to shape.

28. Pass L line through #34 & #37. Add #62 - cross through (L to R/R to L) pull to shape.

29. Pass L line through #39. pull to shape.

L line is exiting #39 & R line is exiting #62

Insert one 8mm round in the point of the heart and one 6mm round in each of the lobes. (or use three 6mm round beads).

Work half of the diagram #4 then insert beads, otherwise beads will fall out.



30. String #63 on L line. Add #64 - cross through (L to R/R to L) pull to shape.

31. Pass R line through #60. #65 on the L line. Add #66 - cross through (L to R/R to L) pull to shape.

32. Pass R line through #58 8. Add #67 - cross through (L to R/R to L)

33. Pass R line through #54. Pass L line back through #65. Add #68 - cross through (L to R/R to L)

34. Pass R line through #52 & #49. Add #69 - cross through (L to R/R to L)

35. Pass R line through #47. Add #70. Add #71 - cross through (L to R/R to L)

36. Pass L line through #63 & #41. Add #72 - cross through (L to R/R to L)

37. Pass L line through #43 & #45 & #70

Lines exit next to each other.




If you plan to add a hanger, on both lines, string 3 or 4 seed beads, a crystal, the desired amount of seed beads for the loop, pass back through the crystal, then add the same number of seed beads added on the first side. Work the lines back through the same crystals on the opposite side and make a square knot. Work through a few more beads and knot again. Work the tails away from the final knot and glue the knots. Use size 11 Delicas for the hanger.
