Intro to Bead Embroidery Components Tutorial
Yes, it’s finally here — my Intro to Bead Embroidery Components tutorial. It’s been a long time in coming, and kept growing in size when I added more and more topics and projects. It ended up with 60 pages and loads and loads of photos.
And of course, plenty of components and projects to keep you busy.
One of my favorites ended up being the dagger fringe earrings — made with dichroic cabochons, it turned up being delicious. It’s one of the components that kind of called out to me (I could hear the cabs pleading to be made into something pretty).
I love bead embroidery, and the drop-dead gorgeous projects I see in books and magazines are definitely eye candy! But collars and large cuffs aren’t what I wear for jewelry. And while I do enjoy bling, I also know that I would never be able to finish one of the broad collars — way too time-consuming for me.
Components, on the other hand, are as close to instant gratification as you can get! Not to mention that they can be dressed up or down to suit your fancy.
You can use them singly or connected together to make a necklace or bracelet. Maybe a pair for a set of earrings?
What about mixing and matching components? As you can tell, there are loads of things you can do.
And since each component works up pretty fast, you can start one after lunch and wear it that night.
(Oh by the way — it’s really fun, too!)

If you’ve been beading for a little while, you’ve most likely heard the word “components”. But how exactly does that apply to bead embroidery?
If you’re not quite sure what components can do for you, here’s a short video on some of what’s covered.
Here’s another idea of how to use components, in the bead embroidery bracelets tutorial.
