You can make your stringing projects more interesting by choosing a theme or a story to tell. Mental Gears is a steampunk style bauble on a “heavy metal” strand of beads, featuring real pyrite, copper, and bronzed glass. The copper chain and hook make it adjustable, from 16-1/2 to 20-1/2 inches. The central pendant is polymer clay, fashioned by Amy E Fraser, painter and polymer clay artist.

Seed beads are uniformly shaped, usually beads ranging in size from under a millimeter to several millimeters. “Seed bead” is a generic term for any small bead. As with jewelry wire, a greater number indicates a smaller size; for example, the 13/0 size is smaller than the 6/0 size. Seed beads come in a multitude of colors and materials and can be worked in an endless variety of stitches. Here are five stunning ideas for creating multiple strand seed bead jewelry.

For that third resolution, I’m going to look no further than my subscription to Stringing magazine, where I’ve been seeing lots of great pieces that incorporate nontraditional stringing materials such as ribbon, leather, and cord. As an example, just take a peek at these great designs from past issues so you know what I’m talking about. Don’t they look great for enhancing what might be just a plain old piece?

I regard stringing to be the back bone of jewellery making. It uses easily obtained supplies, and will teach a fundamental sense of coordinating colors along with shapes into an attractive design. Stringing homemade jewelry using beading wire is also perfect for practicing how to manipulate small items with your hands, using pressure and angle to obtain different results. Methods for most tasks are interchangeable, so if you discover that youd preferably use a needle and thread for a project calling for beading wire,then go for it.
