Wirework & Pearls Necklace Beading Ideas
Showing all made usingand
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 […]
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 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. […]
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 […]
This necklace has a variety of Swarovski gold & cream pearls, siam and topaz crystals and a vintage pendant. I attached the wire to the pendant, then added a pearl and started twisting the wire. I did that for each pearl. When I got to the length I wanted, I started wrapping the wire around […]
I used wire wrapping in the construction of this pendant. I started by shaping the wire in a swirl shape and then started attaching the beads to it using freshwater creme pearls and 6mm purple bicone beads. Then, I finished it by a wire wrapped purple briolette. A silver tone chain is attached.
For this necklace I used round marshmallow turquoise beads, cultured freshwater pearls, and sterling silver chain. The beads are strung on .019 softflex and then crimped onto the chain. I used a round hammered toggle clasp which is wire wrapped to a pearl and then the chain. I love how the pearls work with the […]
This necklace is one of a kind. It reminds me of something you would find in a treasure box. The large beads are all vintage. The necklace also contains glass pearls in almond and black, copper Czech glass beads, snowflake obsidian, hematite, and textured circles. I put each individual bead on wire and linked them […]
I wanted to use this lovely glowing Chalcedony bead as a pendant, but it really needed some added interest and color. I hand formed the ring/frame out of thick 18g wire in roughly a similar yet different shape to the gemstone. I then hammered it and used 28g soft copper wire to wrap it with […]
The name and inspiration for this necklace set was derived from my late grandmother and favorite singer, the late Aaliyah. The beauty of this set just reminded me of their beauty. I worked with beautifully glowing faceted Peruvian blue chalcedony briolette beads and iridescent peach puff coin freshwater pearls. I strung the beads onto gold […]
This is a very simple piece. Faceted flat top tear drop clear crystals are teamed up here with tiny fresh water pearls wrapped in sterling silver. The chain and clasp are sterling silver. The ‘pendant’ focal was strung onto a 22gauge sterling silver wire and attached to the sterling silver chain with jump rings.
I have used a buttercup yellow rose and wire wrapped it along with some beige / latte coloured glass pearls. A little brass key and a flower also dangle from an antique brass hoop to complete the charms. I used antique brass cable chain and a heart lobster clasp to secure. I was inspired by […]
This necklace reminds us of an oyster opening up, full of a pearly treasure! A sterling silver teardrop focal is hammered, textured and formed by hand, then oxidized and polished to bring out the gorgeous pattern. It is accented with peacock colored freshwater pearls, an almond twisted Swarovski pearl, and a single small white jade […]
My love for chocolate inspired this piece. I made it with brown, copper, and creamy pink colored freshwater pearls that I wrapped with 14kt gold filled wire. I decided the Y-drop was the perfect accent for it. I then finished it off with a 14kt gold filled lobster clasp and some medium sized 14kt gold […]
This piece is made with antique brass, amazonite, smoky quartz and pearls. Blue and brown make a nice color combo, and amazonite and smoky quartz are two of my favorite gemstones, so I figured the two stones would look great in a necklace with a little bit of white thrown in somewhere. I took a […]
This piece combines the earthiness of copper with the elegance of pearls. I created four cooper beads using 20 gauge copper wire (7″ pc.) hand wrapped into two sizes of swirls going in opposite directions with a loop in the middle for beading. One 8mm, several 4mm and 6mm white glass pearls as well as […]
