Diy: Braided Bead Necklace

Diy: Braided Bead Necklace
I couldn't have predicted so many jewelry posts. What can I say? I get on kicks. I saw a necklace like this in a store but it was shorter and the braid contained different kinds of beads. I wanted it longer with one type of bead. Tada, the braided bead necklace. An amount of beads, it's hard to say how many, I used about 4 more beads than this jar holds. Next, take two strands of beads and thread the two threads through one bead tip. Repeat for each pair and then repeat on the opposite end, making sure to get the knot as close to the bead tip as possible. Clamp three of the ends to one large jump ring. The braiding part is a little tricky if you don't secure your beads strands to something. *Finally, the note about the clasp.

Denim bracelet - tutorial One of my most popular posts last year was my denim bracelets, and I got a lot of requests for a tutorial. So I have decided to kick off the new year by keeping my promise. What you need to make these bracelets are as follows: Beaded Triangle Pendant This simple, minimalist beaded triangle pendant is an easy addition to any wardrobe. I’ve made this one in black cubes with a touch of iridescence, but it could be made to coordinate with any number of colors or textures, and is an ideal piece to pair with a v-neck. Supplies: - seed beads – these are 1.8mm glass cube beads made by Miyuki - beading thread – I used black 00 nymo – if your thread clashes with your beads you’ll also want a bead colored permanent ink pen - chain or cord with a diameter equal to or less than the size of seed bead (so it fits through a one-bead sized hole - jump rings and clasp for your chain Ordinary seed beads will work beautifully for this project, too. I’ve had these cubes in my stash for a while and I love them, but they don’t work for anything that needs to curve. They’re perfect for something like this that needs to stay flat.

DIY Crystal Coral Necklace Beading Tutorial What can you say about this necklace? I created the necklace hoping you guys will like it It’s a variation of the Double Needle Right Angle Weave, showing what you can do with the technique. The length of the necklace is 18 inches.

DIY Paper Poppy Another one of my favorite paper flowers that I created last year is this orange paper poppy. I made two dozen of them to decorate my daughter’s 18th birthday party last year mixing it with a black and white French theme. As one of my favorites and loving the happy orange color, I have since used these poppies for paper brooches, to wear in my hair and of course to add that special touch on top of gifts. This PDF includes the watercolor print for both the front and back of this flower. I find this style works best with a laser printer and am delighted to find that FedEx Office can print this for you for around $1 a flower. Have them print it onto their regular printer paper, text weight.
