For those of you who can’t visit in person we will have a regular post on this blog giving you a closer look at the finished jewelry. Fernando has written all the instructions and is sharing them with you.

After I made the little sample you can see in the last piggy post, I added a section with bicones plus one with Miyuki’s new baroque beads. The idea was to compare the different bead choices side by side. See what works and what needs to be tweaked. See what bead shapes and sizes work better than others.

I was asked awhile ago to make a double-strand necklace to showcase a scarab that my customer had. Do you see the two crystals and metal beads in the middle? You can just see that there is a large jump ring sitting between the two metal beads. I included a few more jump rings in the package just in case it needed to hang lower to look right.

In honor of the show, I created this quick-and-easy necklace design with milagros, religious folk charms popular in Mexico and the Southwest. The charms, bails, and clasp are from TierraCast. The cording and cord ends are from Ornamentea, and the jump rings are from Red Panda Beads.

Recently my mom was wearing a necklace that she purchased a few years ago at Coldwater Creek. I really liked the style and after looking at it, I realized that it would be simple to make my own version using the same construction concept. I love that this necklace is really quick to make, yet the result is very striking. Whip one up for yourself today…

I like my necklaces to be bold, simple and colorful. When I spotted some simple lacquer bobble necklaces in a boutique for upwards of $20, I knew I could DIY my own version for much cheaper! Not only are these a fun project to fill an afternoon, but you can likely make them using supplies you have on hand (if you don’t have them in your stash, they’re super inexpensive!), AND you can make them to match every outfit in your wardrobe!
