St. Petersburg Stitch Video

After many requests, I sat down and learned the St. Petersburg stitch!  It does require your patience, but you will be rewarded with a beautiful stitched v-shaped necklace.  It is a piece that you can put down and pick back up and work in stages!  So join me as I demonstrate this fabled stitch!

St. Petersburg Stitch
Another great beading video by Karla! She does a marvelous job at explaining the process and it is very clear and easy to understand. I only make these when I have PLENTY of time on my hands. It does take awhile to complete. However, the result is a gorgeous necklace!

St. Petersburgh Stitch
Of all the sites, written and web, consulted yours was the clearest and most informative! It allowed me to complete a level 3 necklace that I might otherwise have set aside. Thank you so much for your excellent instructions, especially starting the second side as a separate unit--then connecting to the piece already done. Most helpful.

At first it seemed difficult... but, when I tried it came together perfectly! When I was done a family member saw it and loved it. I made a second one, and i want to know if I want to make it thicker do I add a seed bead to your steps?

Hi Karla, I just wanted to say a very big thankyou for the St Petersburg St Video. I watched it over many times. Your instructions are easy to follow and the finished product is just beautiful. I produced a necklace but you can adapt this for wine glass decor, earings and even the neck of T"Shirt for adornment . You certainly are a master of your trade!Regards Alice

I procrastinated about doing this stitch, but finally tried it tonight. It was quick and easy (after watching the videos about a dozen or so times!) and looks stunning. I used Opaque Turquoise Luster seeds with Crystal AB fire polish (to match a shirt I had). I couldn't be happier with it and look forward to making many more in different colors & sizes! Many thanks, Karla!!!!!
