Bead Stringing & Copper Jewelry Ideas
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 […]
This is a beautiful necklace and very simple to design. To make this necklace I took various kinds of beads mixes like glass beads, shells, uncuts, semi-precious, handmade marble glass beads, 4mm glass beads, 11/0 seed beads, bugle beads and some glass flowers. I made two strings of uncut chips, each separated by two black […]
This amazing gemstone beaded bracelet features green aventurine gemstone chips, copper glass seed beads, and a beautiful 1 3/4″ rhyolite gemstone in the center that I have surrounded in sterling silver beads. This bracelet is designed with a toggle clasp and measures 7 1/2″ in length.
This piece is a 18 inch choker with two strands closely intertwined. The first strand has tiger’s eye stones and picture jasper beads with the second strand of gold colored seed beads wrapped around the picture jasper beads. Brown glass and copper-tinted spacers are mixed in with the other beads to complete the piece. All […]
I was thinking of a book from my childhood. It was about this little African boy and his adventures. All the girls in the pictures wore anklets made with beads and large teeth! The long green glass beads reminded me of those teeth and the bright green color evokes a bit of a jungle feel. […]
This piece combines the earthiness of copper with the elegance of pearls. I created four cooper beads using 20 gauge copper wire (7″ pc.) hand wrapped into two sizes of swirls going in opposite directions with a loop in the middle for beading. One 8mm, several 4mm and 6mm white glass pearls as well as […]
I picked up some size 6 beads in this color mix called “Navajo” and was inspired to make myself a necklace and matching earrings. I also used various stones from a mixed set, silver spacers and bead caps and metallic copper seed beads. I made the earrings by threading seed beads with the size 6 […]
To start the necklace, I cut 3 pieces of beading wire, the first one longer for the focal point of the Buddha. I strung the charm, amazonite 4mm round beads, and bali saucers on the first length of wire and crimped both sides around small round pewter links. The round links are then attached to […]
This necklace was designed with 7-8mm antiqued golden copper freshwater cultured pearls. I separated each pearl with small clear glass seed beads. Chrysolite Swarovski Austrian crystals and sterling silver beads are also used to design this necklace. The large pendant measures 2″x2″ and features colors of frosted amber/copper with hints of green. I finished this […]
An exotic necklace made of Hickoryite jasper, natural peach jade, red tiger eye, stick pearls and copper over pewter beads and clasp. The necklace is 21 inches long and the matching earrings have grey niobium ear wires. I was inspired by the Hickoryite jasper ovals and everything else fell into place.
The focal drop is a hand crafted lampwork bead that is clear with a copper swirl lining. The necklace includes dark wood round beads, Czech faceted smokey brown beads and some silver coloured metal Bali-like beads, bead caps and hanger to finish. The seed beads are clear dark brown and the bugle beads are metallic […]
For this necklace I used a cabochon with a real scorpion within. I made the combination with shell pieces, bone beads, miyuki seed beads and beautiful filigree beads. The combination of the different materials and the copper and cream colors give this necklace a friendly instead of a scary look.
This beaded necklace was designed with smoked topaz (brown) Swarovski crystals, brown fossil beads, sterling silver beads, and copper/brown glass seed beads. The large floral pendant gives this necklace a subtle hint of vintage flare. It holds six large topaz rhinestones centered in each individual flower. Matching Swarovski crystals dangle off the end for a […]
This necklace is really easy to make. On beading wire I strung alternating emerald potato pearls with black seed beads. On each end I used a split ring and on one side is chain for adjustable length and on the other side is a hand made clasp using 20g silver wire. For the pendant I […]
This long sturdy necklace is very easy to make. It is the beauty off the beads that makes it. I put small onyx beads, long tube red jasper beads, golden brown rectangular mother of pearl beads, small dark orange carneol beads, golden brown freshwater pearls and a lot of red copper rings together on just […]
I’ve created this necklace using African cream disk trade beads, cream coral beads, and West African lost wax brass beads (basket shape). To add color to this piece I’ve added blue turquoise beads and antique gold Bali style spacers. Completing the necklace is a 22mm oxidized copper ring as the toggle clasp. This necklace measures […]
This bracelet features my own handmade lampwork beads, sterling silver, and fluted Czech glass beads. I made the beads by creating a round ivory colored base, added a copper green stripe, then a black stripe. The beads were annealed in a kiln and then cleaned. Finally I soaked the beads in an acid etching solution […]
The materials in my piece consist of amethyst colored beads, a beautiful shell pendant with a fantastic sheen and smoothness, a charm to accent the pendant, and to finish the necklace off I used a heart toggle clasp. It was constructed using simple techniques … I simply strung the beads onto a copper wire, and […]
