Bead Weaving & Silver Necklace Beading Ideas
Showing all made usingand
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 […]
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.
This necklace is made with a hand crafted polymer clay pendant in shades of turquoise and blue. (The focal bead is an artists designer bead and has been created in an artists studio in the U.S.A. The bead is totally unique and original, even more beautiful in real life. It’s 3.3cm x 2.5cm). The necklace […]
I love vintage style jewelry and wanted a necklace that would be perfect with a little black dress for an evening out. This beaded necklace was made using Swarovski Elements crystals, Miyuki seed beads and silver metal beads. The lacy filigree look of the beaded pendant gives the necklace a 3D effect.
This necklace has an amber foil lined lampwork heart focal bead and a mix of smaller Czech glass and lampwork glass beads to finish. The seed beads used are foil lined gold, the bugle beads are foil lined amber/topaz. The beads are mounted on nylon cord and silver plated wire, and fastened in the back […]
This piece I worked long and hard on. I used imitation pearls and black seed beads, with tigertail wire and silver headpins. I saw a necklace in this style but with different colors and it was not as sassy. I saw the necklace as a challenge for me so I decided to look at it […]
This necklace consists of many of my handmade lampwork beads, gemstones and Japanese seed beads. My theme and colour palette were decided upon as part of a nature series, this piece being the butterfly. I have hand forged silver pieces to represent the slender butterly feelers, with my lampwork glass butterfly sculpture becoming the focal […]
This ornate set was made with a matte black coloured 3D filigree pendant (5.7cm x 5cm), Hematite rice shaped and round beads, facetted opaque black glass beads, some with fire polished finish and silver plated solid metal Bali-like beads. The seed beads used are foil lined dark grey and opaque black. The beads were strung […]
The blue, green and dark grey 6 mm bead combination and the intricate central motif add up to a vibrant necklace that makes me think about spring and blossoms. This necklace measures about 46cm and it is finished with a silver plated lobster clasp and a chain that makes it adjustable.
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.
When I saw a sample of stitching seed beads into the twisted rope called DNA, I had to try it. It’s pretty time-consuming, especially with small #11 seed beads. After many weeks of starting and stopping, this is the result. I added silver spacers, my favorite green triangular beads and a toggle clasp.
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 […]
