NBR 101 - BEADWORK

PASS

  • All correct photos have been turned in

REDO

  • If they do not turn in the correct photos

    • It is borderline IMPOSSIBLE to not pass this on the first try

    • The main point is to see that they are practicing, and they are receiving feedback to address the biggest issues they are facing at that moment

  • If the End Beads are not FULLY finished (meaning hair must be stitched on, and the end beads tied off and glued in order to pass)

QUESTIONS TO ASK YOURSELF WHEN GIVING FEEDBACK:

 

  • Are the beads 1” apart? 
  • Are the section sizes too small? or too large?
  • Is the beadwork sectioning clean? or messy?
  • Are the beads on base? Or off base?

CORRECT EXAMPLE OF BEADWORK

Below are INCORRECT examples of Beadwork and possible feedback to give.

BEADS OFF BASE

If you take a close look at your beads you can see that they are shifting off base. If you see that they are shifting left or right, you need to be sure that you are kicking out at 90degrees from the scalp. If your beads begin to shift high, that means that you are PULLING on the string as opposed to wiggling down.

SECTION SIZE TOO WIDE

You want your section size to be a vertical SLIGHT oval, as opposed to WIDE. If you are grabbing a too wide section, when you stitch those hairs will get caught and it will be painful for the client.
