Beading Jewelry Projects with Clasp
This necklace is a nice combination of turquoise and brown colors. I started by twisting 2 strands of natural shell beads together, attaching a silver bail to it. I linked the turquoise howlite teardrop pendant to the bail. For an adjustable size, I attached brown satin ribbon in place of a clasp.
I was feeling summery and wanted to make something to suit my mood. I came up with this bracelet which is made of vintage Lucite flower charms in various pastel shades. The charms are wire wrapped onto a silver plated chain. I have finished the bracelet with a classic silver plated heart toggle clasp.
This necklace features 4 strands, each unique, but layer together beautifully. I used one of my favorite color combinations…bronze and turquoise. I made two of the strands more of a random look with seed beads, freshwater pearls, crystals, and turquoise. One strand has a regular pattern of turquoise and copper beads. The final strand holds […]
I started this crocheted necklace by picking out one of my favorite colors of C-Lon cord–I love the gold color. Then I chose some small gold and white seed beads, small freshwater pearls and clear sparkly crystals, both Swarovski and Czech. I threaded them all onto the cord randomly making sure I mixed up the […]
This fun beaded bracelet was created with 4mm sparkly brown and, just a touch of, hot pink crystal fire polished beads. Its “wrapped” effect was created by threading the beads with 10 meters of size 2 cotton cord onto soft 1.5mm brown leather cord. I made the catch for the clasp by knotting the ends […]
I made this antique turquoise piece using 2 sizes of round turquoise beads. You may use from 8mm for the smaller ones and 20mm for the big ones to have this effect. I use wire wrapping technique for each dangle with bronze eye pins to get that antique effect that would match the spider veins […]
This beaded gemstone necklace features beautiful 6mm tigerseye gemstones, turquoise rondelle gemstones and a large 1 1/2″ turquoise oval gemstone pendant. A sterling silver clasp and chain allows this necklace to be adjustable. Matching bracelet and earrings are also shown on my website.
I made this necklace using ceramic focal beads from Earthenwood Studios. The light blues and yellows look amazing with the Vintaj brass. I made a simple chain using faceted chalcedony, and small blue ceramic rounds. I just simply strung the beads on looped wire, attaching them all together with jump-rings. I threw in a few […]
This necklace features red coral coins combined with glass seed beads, mother of pearl chunks, freshwater pearls, banded hematite jasper, and mahogany obsidian. I made it a double strand and added a sterling silver connector to dangle a pendant stone combination. I like the rich combination of textures and colors in this group of stones. […]
Inspired by a midnight vision of waterfalls falling off of cliffs, this necklace was made with freshwater pearls, sea-green aventurine chips, gold and silver mussel-shell coins, mother-of-pearl cube beads, dark shell beads and a sprinkle of aqua semi-precious gemstone beads to accent. It measures 17″ around and has a toggle clasp. I used two strands […]
This bracelet consists of different size blue freshwater pearls, alternating with Bali spacer beads and clear Swarovski crystals. For the clasp, I used a small lobster claw clasp on one side and a split ring on the other side. I covered the crimp beads with bead covers. This bracelet looks great and really sparkles because […]
This necklace was inspired by a piece I saw of someone whose work I admire. I wanted to see if I could render something like it but in my own style. I love the boldness of the 20mm round mosaic turquoise beads and the contrast that the antiqued brass leaf motif beads caps provided against […]
I made this necklace using rose quartz round beads, faceted donut shaped cherry quartz beads, and cultured freshwater pearls. Toggle clasp is sterling silver. The beautiful faceted rose quartz pendant is 1 1/8″ in length. Necklace is strung on 49 strand .019 softflex beading wire. Necklace is 19″ in length.
Inspired by my love of knitting as well as my love for beading, I decided to try making a hand knitted bracelet reminiscent of the peyote stitch or loom seed bead bracelet bands. I wanted to make a reversible pattern so that the bracelet could be worn on both sides. I started this “Two in […]
I created this bracelet using a simple bead weaving technique with the combination of Swarovski crystal beads in garnet, citrine, and peridot colors. I added gold metallic seed beads and white glass pearls for more vivid contrast, solidity, and depth. I used metal findings consisting of a sterling silver hook clasp, jumprings, and an extension […]
This necklace consists of 6 strands of dark, light brown, and bone colored 5mm wood beads. It is 18.5″ in length. The focal pendant is a 2.25″ wooden donut with paisleylike flowers painted on one side (the other side is blank, solid wood). It can be worn with either side showing; just flip the pendant […]
This classic style bracelet is made using 10mm acrylic beads and seed beads. I have used beading wire to construct the bracelet. The clasp I have used is lobster-claw style and I have added a metal princess charm using a split ring. This bracelet will be suitable for a few of my friends and family […]
This unique pendant was handmade with silver that is hand cast into two different long strands. The bottom one is longer and has a smooth finish and is made into a double branch. The top one is textured and oxidized. Between each of these on the left side is a beautiful rectangular lapis lazuli gemstone. […]
