Chunky Bracelet and Earring Set

With this set, placement of the beads is key. The larger, bolder beads gathered together in the front really make a statement, whether you’re creating a necklace or a bracelet. Keep that in mind as you string your beads on the beading wire. Alternate with the other ceramic beads and the small, round glass beads, which make a fine and subtle supporting cast to these unique ceramic beads which seem to have a language all their own. Be careful not to pull the wire too tightly when finishing with your clasp, as the bracelet will be stiff. A little slack when you’re adding your last crimp bead will help the bracelet move a bit more freely.

The narrow ceramic beads work well for the earrings; they are just enough. Anything more might be too heavy. Add these and the small round beads to your eyepins, make a loop at the ends and add them to your ear wires. Nothing speaks so well as one-of-a-kind ceramic beads, which I’ve really come to enjoy. Have fun!
