Beaded Bead Necklace Making a large bead out of small beads is the kind of thing everyone should know how to do because the concept is just so cool. If you’ve made the beaded rings we featured previously you already have all the skills you need to make this. I still had the beads I used for the brick stitch diamond pendant out and I couldn’t resist making something else with them. I love those colors. Supplies and Equipment: - seed beads – these are matte opaque size 15 in cream, seafoam, robin’s egg and black (consider swaping them for size 11 beads – they’re much easier if you’re new to beading) - thread – this is nymo in size OO - beading needle - sharp scissors - jump ring - necklace chain with clasp This is the pattern I used. This tutorial isn’t incredibly in depth because this bead is made exactly the same way these beaded rings are made. String on your first row of beads. Turn, and work back, being careful not to twist your piece. Stitch the piece closed. Weave your tails in well and trim the threads.

Little Wishes - Beyond Beyond | Beyond Beyond ™ Well, we are dusting off our obligatory black armband over in Beyond Beyond land for one of our most favourite shops ever – Early Bright (mega sad face) they have been the purveyors of some delicious and inspirational bling that is more art than jewellery. And we just want to share one of the most beautiful pieces every a wish in a jar. We used to shake dandelion bushes when we were little in the vain belief that we would get a Barbie dream house, Michael Jackson tickets, the ability to breakdance overnight (although we never progressed beyond being able to do backspins), millionaire moolah, or our favourite wish was that we had been dropped off at the wrong house (sorry parental units) and we were really the offspring of some family with the financial clout of Daddy Warbucks and the Rothschild’s combined. About the author I'm the big kahuna with the whole shebang.
DIY Lanvin-inspired Pearl and ribbon necklace Supplies- Satin Ribbon-I used two different sizes but you don't have to. Large rhinestone pendant Assorted sizes of pearl beads Beading thread Thin lace trim First I started by beading the pearls onto the thread. Continue beading the large pearls and then begin incorporating the small pearls again working back up to the large pearls. Once your done beading, tie a knot large enough for the beads to not move around on each end. Then I took about a yard of ribbon and laced it through the loop of the pendant. Pull both ends of the thread through the pendant loop. At this point I decided I wanted to add some lace trim to the necklace. At the opposite end of the pearls you should have the ends of the lace trim. Voila! Thoughts- -I think I'm going to sew the lace trim to the pearl beads. Enjoy! xoxo, Amanda
Peyote Bracelet As you can see from this peyote bracelet, there are no seed beads that works better with Peyote stitch than Delicas from Miuki. These cylinder beads are so uniform, that when stitched together you can hardly pass a needle between them, because of their tight fit. Stitched together they give a very stiff finish, perfect for anything that needs to hold its shape. You can use this stiffness to your advantage, like in this peyote bracelet, where you stitch the bracelet lengthwise instead of the regular way. The Delicas also have rather large holes, which enables you to go through each bead several times. Therefor you can shape the bead work in any way you like, as you will see doing this peyote bracelet. What you need: #11 Delicas Gold Fleck Ivory#11 Delicas Rainbow Luster Opaque Olive#11 Delicas Galvanized GoldFirelineBeading needle #12Swarovski bicones 4mm Olivine AB3 Freshwater pearls, olive colored, proximately 6 mm Step 1: String one olive Delica and one Gold Delica. Add two olive beads.
Delightfully DIY: DIY J.Crew-Inspired Pearl Necklace True to my OCD tendencies, it has been driving me crazy that I have several DIY posts on Not Without Heels and obviously the rest of my DIY posts on this blog. I want them organized and all in the same place. So - I decided to move the few tutorials I have over there to Delightfully DIY. Here is the original post: A couple days ago I decided to try and come up with some new ideas to use up some of the beads I have had forever and the result has been me in a bit of a jewelry-making frenzy since then. You will need: 2 different sizes of chain (the smaller about 12 inches and the larger only 3 inches) 220 6mm glass pearl beads (12 per bead ball plus a few extra) Fishing line Lobster claw clasp 2 eye pins 2 jump rings (one slightly larger) E-6000 glue (or something similar) Small round pliers Cut a piece of fishing line (I used 12 inches which was overkill but I wanted to make sure I had plenty) and string together 12 pearls to make a beaded ball. Put a pearl on one of the eye pins.

: Clarissa Tutorial : ClarissaLevel : Beginner to Intermediate Clarissa is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. Equipments- Czech twin seed beads- Czech fired polished round 4mm- 11/0 seed beads- Clasp & Jump rings- Beading needle size 12 (or 10, I can't remember. lol)- SoNo or Nymo or fireline or your favorite thread. I made this bracelet using the free twin beads, sent to Thailand directly from Czech Republic. If you have facebook, you can visit Preciosa Ornela fan page and check out Twin for Free. You can get free 10g sample pack of twin beads and it's enough for this bracelet. EDIT: The free campaign is over now. With bead stitch, I prefer SoNo over Nymo. I got this beautiful clasp from Valerie. Cut the thread around 100 cm. Pass your needle to the first 11/0 seed bead to form a ring. Add one 11/0 seed bead, one 4mm fire polished, and one 11/0 seed bead. Repeat step 3 around the ring. We will continue with another layer. Make five motifs.

DIY Galaxy Necklace My apologies for being MIA this week. It was my partner's birthday yesterday (turning 30! I still can't believe it). I wanted everything to be perfect (or at least, the best possible) and it took me more work and time than I initially thought. I have an easy DIY project to share today. You will need: Triangle (or round, or any shape you fancy) charms. I first applied a generous coat of navy blue polish and let it dry completely. I started with the hot pink polish. I randomly sponged the polish onto the charm. I continued sponging the polish onto the charm- a dab here, a dab there, with lilac, then white, then navy blue (the color I used as a base) until I was happy with the result. I applied a layer of glitter polish and let it dry completely. Voilà!
DIY Turquoise Triangle Necklace I am head over heels for all things from Lizzie Fortunato. The combination of earthy, vintage, and a little luxury is just my cup of tea (which is Darjeeling, the champagne of teas, in case you wondered). I've been lusting after this necklace sold exclusively on Shopbop for months, and after what seemed like an eternity over searching for the right beads, I finally put together a DIY version. The hardest part was sourcing the beads, but everything else was a cinch! Cut a long piece of beading wire and string on your beads. On one of the wire ends, slide on the crimp, wire guard (if using), and an end cap. Repeat on the other side of the wire to close off the beaded part of the necklace. Use the toothpick to apply glue inside the end caps, the add an end of the cord to each cap. Cut the cord in half (wrap where you will cut with tape first to keep from fraying and unraveling), then glue the remaining end caps to the ends of the cord. And we're done!
