Finished Jewelry Update January 2022

Watch the Video

Hey beautiful! In today’s video I will share the finished pieces I have created from the recent January 2022 Bargain Bead Box, BeadingSchool Academy Box, and more! You will see a mix of gemstone and glass beads, put together by means of a variety of different techniques, including: bead weaving, bezeling, and stringing. Hopefully this video provides you with some ideas and inspiration in your own beading and jewelry making! Feel free to let me know what you’ve been up to in the comments below!

Featured Finished Jewelry:

Carved Red "Coral" Rose Pendant Necklace Set

Inspired by the contents of the January 2022 Bargain Bead Box, this chest length necklace includes genuine faceted garnet rondelles and man-made carved coral beads. The rose shaped pendant is a three-dimensional beauty that is the focal point, and coordinates with the deep shades of red and copper, and the coordinating “coral” beads.

Peach Aventurine and Antique Copper Necklace Set

Inspired by the contents of the January 2022 Bargain Bead Box, this asymmetrical necklace includes genuine aventurine and garnet gemstone beads. A detailed antique copper medallion is balanced on one side with a smaller copper component. The center of the necklace contains enameled glass beads with a look that is similar to hand-painted porcelain. Additional antique copper charms adorn the bottom of the necklace, and pull the metallic accents together.
