Free Bead Stringing Patterns (5/9/2014)
When it comes to beading, so many of us start with stringing beads. I remember standing in a department store trying to find jewelry to match an outfit. I was frustrated that I didn’t want what I could afford and I couldn’t afford what I wanted. I figured I could make exactly what I wanted and save money. Well, falling in love with Swarovski crystals didn’t save any money, but I do get to make what I want now.

Bold, statement necklaces continue to be a strong trend as we transition into the warmer months. An eye-catching piece can make all the difference in an otherwise bland outfit. Multi-strand necklaces are one way to jump on board with this trend. However, when working with multiple strands, you have to finish off your piece in a different way. In this post, I will show you two different ways to finish up a multi-strand piece.

Like a lot of bead-weaving enthusiasts and artists out there, I got started stringing beads before I picked up a needle and thread and started stitching. When I think back on how I got started with bead stringing, I go back and forth between cringing and laughing at myself — I really had no idea what I was doing!

Beads are long, handmade strings of beads worn by both guys and girls in the 1960′s. The trend is thought to have evolved from the generation’s fascination to non-Western cultures such as India and Native America. I love spotting love beads when flipping through old photos and magazines from that era. Janis Joplin is probably the most famous ‘hippie’ to wear love beads and I don’t think anyone wore them quite as well as she did.

I recently took on the exciting task of making my first piece of jewelry! Although I have previously dipped my toes into jewelry making I never made anything too intricate, and it’s been quite a few years! Therefore, it is safe to say I am starting fresh.

Before I give you the list of supplies, I just want to note that you definitely don’t need the exact same beads and charms that I used! The best part about making your own jewelry is that it can be customized to your personal style and taste…so grab any color, shape, and size beads you love and go for it!
