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 fun beaded bracelet was created with 4mm sparkly brown and, just a touch of, hot pink crystal fire polished beads. Its “wrapped” effect was created by threading the beads with 10 meters of size 2 cotton cord onto soft 1.5mm brown leather cord. I made the catch for the clasp by knotting the ends […]
This is a very simple macrame bracelet hand knotted with a shiny synthetic gold colored cord. the beads are cream colored resin and 8mm honey/amber glass. The knots used are lark’s head and the square knot. It is finished with a loop and bead closure. The closure bead is acrylic. Very easy to make!
My grandmother had given me a wooden bead necklace that had crazy safari animals on it along with these cool wooden beads in green and black. I took it apart and began to play with the wooden disks. I had purchased the triangle of bloodstone about a year ago and it was waiting for a […]
The main materials used in this unique bracelet is 8 mm turquoise magnesite stones and bronze leather cord. I started by using the leather cord, making two strands, then I started weaving the stones between the two strand cord so that the bracelet will be wrapped three times around the wrist. Finally, I attached a […]
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 […]

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 […]
Inspired by my love of knitting as well as my love for beading, I decided to try making a hand knitted bracelet reminiscent of the peyote stitch or loom seed bead bracelet bands. I wanted to make a reversible pattern so that the bracelet could be worn on both sides. I started this “Two in […]
“Cloud of Fortune” or xiang yun, refers to beautiful, auspicious clouds, used especially in describing the skies accompanying appearances of Buddha.

To create my “washer” necklace, I took two washers commonly found at your local hardware store. I used 2 different sizes, and hammered them to give them texture. I then attached them to an olive green suede cord. I added a few additional beads, and then attached a toggle clasp using 18 gauge wire.
Whilst on holiday this year I found a shop which sold a lot of wrap bracelets. I thought they were lovely but quite expensive so decided to attempt to make one when I got home. To make the bracelet I have used 4mm gold glass beads, brown leather cord, 1 button and fireline to thread […]
