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!
Karla, I seriously love your video's and have learned so much. I do not think there are too many sights that offer free videos. I learned peyote stitch from you. I have been working on the St Petersburg for quite a while. I started seeing my thread thinking it was showing too much so started pulling thread tighter. Then my thread would break and my knot would not stay or would not go through 11/0 seed beads. Would you have

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.

I LOVE IT!
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?

St Ptersburg St Video
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!!!!!
