Bead Weaving & Swarovski Crystal Jewelry Ideas
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 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 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.
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 […]
A two-needle RAW weave using Swarovski 3mm pearls and Swarovski crystal bicones. The fastening is a beaded 8mm Swarovski pearl. The name is a reference to Catherine the Great, who was patron of the Arts while she reigned in Russia. The cross is a right angle weave exercise taught in Moscow beading schools.
