Pearls Necklace Beading Ideas
In my jewelry creations, I like to mainly use wire, as I love creating different styles, colors and textures with it. In this piece I used 16 gauge silver plated wire. I shaped it in a swirl and zigzag shape, then started hammering it to give it a different texture. After that I started attaching […]
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 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 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.

This pendant was constructed of gold filled wire and fresh water pearls. I started this as an exercise in learning. I was following a tutorial written by Eni on the Beaded Bail. I decided to follow through using an undrilled sea shell that I’ve had for some time. First I had to drill a hole. […]
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 […]
I created this silver metal clay necklace to intentionally be charmy and have tons of movement when worn. 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 […]
An illusion necklace is much easier than it looks! The cord, sold on some beading websites, is called invisible cord or illusion cord. It is also sold as fishing line and the technical name is monofilament. I’ve seen it in black and a translucent white, so this necklace can be made for light and darker skin […]
The cabochon I used was my inspiration for the entire bead embroidery necklace. I used Swarovski crystals, beads and pearls. The freshwater pearls and shells I found on the beaches during holiday. The back is finished with ultra suede. The clasp is also my own design and made with a Swarovski rivoli, O-beads etc.

A dear friend gave me some hematite cabochons. Since I love to combine materials, I started looking for different once. I combined the hematite cabs with Swarovski pearl beads, freshwater pearls, different colors Miyuki seed beads, treasure beads, silver colored rings and spacers. I finished it all with three-way silver locker clasp.
