Beaded chain stitch insects

Apart from flowers, the beaded chain stitch method can be used to embroider insects’ bodies and wings.Here are a few examples:

A dragonfly


A bee?Well, almost!

This  spider’s my favourite.I can’t believe I’m saying this because I suffer from arachnophobia.My mother thinks that’s weird because she doesn’t know that millions of people worldwide suffer from this phobia.The body of this spider is embroidered with 2 different sizes of beads.Once, I had a spider brooch which was my favourite but who needs a brooch when you can embroider this easily!


  1. You create such beautiful things with stitches and beads, An inspiration to us all.

  2. Pretty! I like the way you've used the beads especially different shapes.

  3. wow Bead magic....superb!
