Finished Jewelry Update May 2021

Watch the Video

Hey there! In today’s video, take a look at the beaded jewelry I have created since last month’s Finished Jewelry Update video. This time, I had a lot of fun playing with the contents of the order I placed with Beading School and Sam’s Bead Box, in particular. 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!

A Few of the Finished Pieces:

The two sets below contain some of the items from the April and May 2021 Sam’s Bead Boxes, and they have just been added to the shop. 

rose quartz and silver bird pendant necklace and earrings set

Includes USA pewter bird pendant and connectors by Tierracast and genuine rose quartz semi-preciuos gemstone beads.

Mookaite and Copper Beaded Necklace and Earrings

Includes genuine mookaite semi-precious gemstone beads and antique copper accents. The drops are gorgeous Carnelian-inspired Czech glass.

The four pieces below are brand new designs from the contents of my recent Beading School order. These designs will likely be featured in upcoming tutorials, so for now, they are not available in the shop for purchase.

The jewelry in this category may be sold, but I am usually able to recreate similar designs, upon request. Viewing out of stock jewelry pieces also provides a helpful archive of beading inspiration, and a way to see past jewelry creations that have travelled to new homes. Many pieces include materials from past bead subscription boxes that I have unboxed on my YouTube channel.

I am humbled to say that the pieces found in this category have been shipped to satisfied customers in practically many corners of the world!
