Bead Weaving & Gold Jewelry Ideas
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 bracelet was created with an off loom beadweaving technique using golden glass seed beads, embellished with semi-precious carnelian and blue freshwater pearls. As a healing stone, carnelian is believed to be a stone of ambition and drive. It protects the user from negative emotions and inspires positive courageous confidence.

I attached a Czech pressed glass leaf for the […]

This necklace was made with two sizes of gold and silver seed beads. The main part of the necklace is in a Victorian lace style and is made with small seed beads, and the center piece has a large amber cosmic shaped Swarovski crystal surrounded by larger gold and silver seed beads.
The idea of this set came to me last fall and was inspired on a very sunny day. It was what we call Golden Fall. First, I weaved the necklace base using vertical netting stitch technique. I used tiny seed Czech beads #12 of amber color. Then I made seven leaves for the necklace and […]
I wove a freshwater pearl with golden seed beads to create a rose feature. I used strong fireline to weave the seed beads around the freshwater pearl. I made a circle with the seed beads and then wove the pearl on, then working in rounds I added the petals. Around the rose sit clusters of […]
