Purple Mountain Jade and Fluorite Two Strand Necklace
All beads, including genuine fluorite and purple Mountain Jade, are from the November 2020 Bargain Bead Box subscription. This piece also includes the purple and gold handmade lampwork beads, gold plated chain, and the 4mm gold plated spacer beads, which were included in this month’s subscription. The two strands are elegantly attached to a classic gold plated ring connector on each side.
Purple and Red Tassel Beaded Lariat Necklace
This necklace incorporates many of the beads, which came in the November 2020 Bargain Bead Box, and it also shows off the three main colors: purple, red, and mauve. I have shared lariat style necklaces before, but this design is different due to the fact that I used a Chinese knotting cord to string the beads and create a knot in between each one. The two ends of the necklace, which are the focal of the piece, are embellished with gold decorative connectors, and three-layer tri-color cotton tassels.
The Keystone beaded bracelet tutorial is inspired by the contents of the Pumpkin Festival Collection by Eureka Crystal Beads. Even if you don’t purchase the entire collection, you can find everything you need from their online shop, in all sorts of colors. This pattern incorporates Nib-it, SuperDuo, MiniDuo, and Seed Beads.
I share multiple colors of these versatile bracelets, which are made with waxed cotton cord. In this recent tutorial video I show you how to make an easy sliding knot bracelet. Examples include both double and single strands on each side. Use with gemstone chip beads, metal connectors, and much more! These bracelets are great for any gender, and age group,
