Glass Necklace Beading Ideas
I started this piece by shaping a piece of 16 gauge silver plated wire into an S-shape; then I started hammering it, creating a different texture. I then used two pieces of wire by twisting them together, then wrapping them around the S-shape wire. At last I started attaching the leaf shaped charms and a […]
I wanted to make a necklace for winter (I am in Australia), a substantial piece that can hold its own over bulky jumpers. This scarf necklace is made with 14 strands of glass seed beads, glass bugle beads and rose quartz beads, strung onto professional nylon beading thread. To keep the strands together, I made […]
This piece was made as a commission for a colleague’s mother – the brief was that she has a young and carefree spirit and loves greens and browns. Materials include antique brass Vintaj pieces, unakite, moonstone, Czech and Indian glass and Swarovksi crystals and pearls, all combined with a gorgeous antique brass chain.
This necklace consists of blue translucent glass stones fixed in silver plated wire. I wove the wire around the stone to create a snail shape. The lace that forms the top part of the necklace is a spiral chainmaille technique using silver plated chains. The pendant was woven and the stone is caged in the […]

I attached silver clay rings and random clusters of brown glass pearls and crystal beads to a sterling silver cable chain which I then anchored to a color-coordinated leather cord to make the necklace a little more […]
The inspiration for this necklace was the unique focal piece. Wanting to create a necklace that was worthy of it, I added green and white glass pearls, gold spacers and jade gemstones to round this out to a bright and eye-catching necklace. Learn how to make this necklace.

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. […]
I recently learn how to stitch beaded beads and this set was the result of my first attempt. I created several peyote tubes in three different sizes using pearl colored seed beads (smallest for the earring – largest for the necklace. I strung them on Accuflex along with 4mm Swarovski crystals and 8mm and 4mm […]
I love autumn for it’s crisp weather and beautiful colors and wanted to create a necklace to incorporate those colors.

The leaves were hung down from those triangles and between the triangles to give […]
I came across these lampwork beads for sale and just had to buy them. I combined them with chocolate brown czech glass beads that have a swirl design debossed in them that coordinates so well with the swirl patterns on the handmade beads. I also added triangular shaped silvver metal beads that have a circular […]
The vast majority of my pieces are symmetrical and I wanted to experiment with an asymmetrical design.

I like to recycle everything, including my beads. To make this necklace I re-used turquoise chips from a pair of flip-flops. I worked with two different lengths of bead stringing wire. On the longer part of this necklace I alternated the turquoise chips with glass seed beads. After several different trials I decided to use […]
