My Girlish Whims: Jewelry Lessons. I get a lot of questions from people on where I buy my beads and jewelry supplies.

My Girlish Whims: Jewelry Lessons

I thought I'd do a post with the low down on where I get them from! Where to Buy Beads and Jewelry Supplies Bead Shows Bead shows normally roll into a venue for a long weekend. These shows are great places to STOCK UP! Bead shows are normally pretty exhausting. The BEST bead show I have been to is Bead Fest. I also go to The Innovative Bead Expo, which goes to a few more states on the East Coast. If your interested in going to a bead show but these don't come to your area, flip through a Bead & Button or Bead Style magazine next time you are at a bookstore - there are tons of ads in there for bead shows all over America.

Jewelry Lessons: How to Wire-Wrap Jewelry Part 2 - My Girlish Whims

Today I'm going to show you how to wire-wrap a pendant with these pretty crystal earrings! Note: These are also available for sale in my etsy shop. As promised, here is another installment of DIY BASICS.

This time we are focusing on a little guide to the types of necklaces and the lengths that correspond to them. Knowing where you want a necklace to fall on the body is an extremely important part of the design process. Certain necklace silhouettes only work at certain lengths. For instance: a bib necklace is always going to fall somewhere between 14 and 16 inches. Ciao amici, ieri con mia grande gioia è stato pubblicato il catalogo Il catalogo presenta colori e creazioni di questa primavera/estate.

Ci sono anche io!! Le immagini, qui sotto, riportano alcune mie creazioni: Peach Flowers, Isabelle e La Libellule.Per chi fosse interessato, sul suo blog è stato aperto un giveaway: condividendo le pagine del catalogo è possibile vincere un'inserzione del valore di $200! Nel frattempo, godetevi qualche pagina... As I was making the upcoming tutorial for the ladder necklace it occurred to me that making wire wrapped links was going to be a large part of the project.

So I decided to make an info-graphic for wire wrapped links as a reference guide to anybody who would like to make the ladder necklace but does not know how to make wire wrapped links. This is part of the on-going DIY BASICS section of the blog. I will be slowly trying to get these DIY basic techniques up and have them all in one section soon. That way anybody following along will always know where to go to refresh their memory on a certain material or technique they aren’t sure about.

These are very time consuming to make, between the photography, editing the images and then creating the graphic this one took about 6 hours, so please credit me and link back here if using this graphic on your blog or social media.
