Mixed Media Tutorials (6/5/2015)
Today I have some mixed media jewelry tutorials. It’s going to be pretty warm this weekend (at least in Ohio) so why not stay in. Dig through your jewelry making items and see what you can put together from different medias!

I wanted to make a stunning necklace to showcase it but, alas, inspiration refused to come pay me a visit. So, one day I decided to wrap the donut in copper wire since I love that color combination. And then, it went back into the bead box for a while, again until I came across Erin Siegel’s beautiful necklace in a book. So, the rest of the design concept of this necklace came from Erin Siegel.

A couple of people asked for a tutorial on the mixed media jewelry, so I’ve put together an outline. There are so many possibilities here that I’ve just gotten started and I’m sure everyone else can come up with variations on these basics.

I love making mixed media pieces and blending different elements into one piece of jewelry. I picked up some turquoise nugget beads when I was on vacation last summer – it’s my daughter’s birthstone – and I thought Spring Bling Week would be a great time to get them out and start working with them!

This colorful mixed-media jewelry project is inspired by the beautifully embroidered peasant blouses that were popular in the 1960s and 70s. Of course, fiber tassels are not as sturdy as traditional jewelry components such as wire, metal, beads, etc. But the color and movement they bring to a piece of jewelry is mesmerizing

A crochet and chain version is perhaps less awkward than the knitted one because the knitting needle has to be attached to the entire length of the chain. Whereas all that is needed of the crochet hook is the right size to go through the links of the foundation chain.
