Bead Weaving Necklace Beading Ideas
I wanted to make a necklace for winter (I am in Australia), a substantial piece that can hold its own over bulky jumpers. This scarf necklace is made with 14 strands of glass seed beads, glass bugle beads and rose quartz beads, strung onto professional nylon beading thread. To keep the strands together, I made […]
This necklace is a combination of metal findings, chain, Miyuki bugles and a heart pendant. I got the idea by playing with bugles. At the same time I received an order of the beautiful metal pieces. I knew right then that these materials should be put together in one lovely necklace.
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 […]
This cabochon is 30mm x 40mm and has beautiful earthtone colors. I used Japanese Delicas and size 15’s to peyote stitch a beaded bezel with minimum embellishments and a peyote stitched bail. The beaded rope is done in a spiral rope stitch using the same beads. I have chosen the colors of the beads to […]
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 […]
This jasper pendant was so beautiful that I wanted to use it in a necklace that would frame it well. The bright orange and dark orange metal beads woven in with the smaller copper ones created exactly the effect I was looking for–bright, vibrant, and pretty. It measures 18 inches and combines glass orange rounds, […]
Using 3 Swarovski square crystals, and Toho & Miyuki seed beads, this necklace is made with five beadweaving stitches and a lot of patience! The necklace part is Russian Spiral, while the pendant is beaded crystals and Russian leaves. The fastening is a peyote toggle & loop. I have made this in three colours, but […]
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 […]
The centerpieces of this necklace are Tazwood cherry burl cabochons with subtle inlays of turquoise. They inspired me to create Autumn Splendor. I first beaded around the cabochons, and then with a netting technique and embroidery, blended two sizes of wooden round beads, six colors of seed beads in three different sizes, as well as […]
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.
I’ve been working a lot with a weave pattern involving three strands of beads…I wanted the challenge of creating a five strand necklace and I thought it worked well as a choker. When I finished it, my little son looked at it and said it looked like a rattlesnake…I thought he described it quite well. […]
