Free Bead Stringing Patterns (3/10/2014)
So many of us started making jewelry by bead stringing. For me, it was early 2005 when I was looking for jewelry to go with an outfit. I just couldn’t find what I want. I remembered seeing stuff to make jewelry at the craft stores. So off I went to figure out how to do it and what I needed. Before I knew it I had a lot of necklaces, earrings and bracelet. I had a few failures. Didn’t get it crimped right… Used the wrong wire and it broke. Mistakes I’m sure we all have made. While I am mostly a bead weaver now, I still like the satisfaction of a quick bead stringing project. Try one of these projects today!

As a Walmart Mom, I was asked to share a fun craft that kids can do during spring break. Often times when I think of spring break, I think of trips to the beach and ankle bracelets. Since I do live in a household of all boys, I often don’t get to craft cute things with them like an ankle bracelet. But I wanted to share a craft that mother’s and daughter’s could do together. This easy craft would be perfect for tweens or teenagers looking to create a unique piece of jewelry they can rock during spring break and all summer long!

In order to make the “wave” look in your bracelet you will need to creat two lines of beads, that will be combined in one layout. Start out by laying out one centre bead, then set out a pattern on one side of the bead, and mimic it on the other. Next, layout another pattern below the first one following the same format (pick a bead for the centre, lay pattern on one side, mimic pattern on the other.) Tips for choosing a pattern: I always find choosing a pattern of beads to be the hardest part of this bracelet so here are some of my best tips!

But bead stringing is so much more than just putting a bunch of beads onto a piece of beading wire and adding a clasp! For many bead and jewelry artists, making beaded art by jewelry stringing is an art form all of its own. There are skills that you need to master, like attaching the perfect crimp and learning how to handle your basic jewelry making pliers that are necessary for creating the perfect piece of strung jewelry.

You will also need to make sure the wire will double through the seed beads. If it does not, add two or three matching E beads to the start and finish of the necklace rather than cut the tail off. My wire went through my seed beads without a problem. Also, make sure not to put any large beads close to the toggle or the opening will not slide down the necklace far enough to let you close the clasp.

When you make a bead bracelet or necklace, what direction do you go as you string your beads? On bracelets, I tend to start at the left end and bead over to the right end. On necklaces, I usually start in the center, then bead out to the left end, and finally bead out to the right end. Do you tend to string in the same direction every time?
