All beads, and the genuine carnelian pendant, are from the October 2020 Bargain Bead Box subscription. This set also includes a three-strand beaded bracelet, with beautiful agate beads, and a simple, coordinating pair of earrings. The pendant is embellished with green Czech glass leaves, carnelian rounds, and crystal bicones. I used size 11/0 Japanese seed beads to hand-bead the leafy design in place. The rest of the necklace includes silver plated brass findings and chain, and genuine carnelian rounds in graduated tones.
This necklace includes beads exclusively from the October 2020 Dollar Bead Box subscription, except for the leaf pendant. I used 24g wire to turn the carved Czech glass focal flower bead into a connector, and included the three Czech glass pillow beads, which coordinate beautifully with the tones of tan and turquoise. The two strands are made up of 4mm Czech glass fire polish beads (top), and genuine golden tiger’s eye stones (bottom).
This is another necklace and earrings set, which includes items from the October 2020 Bargain Bead Box subscription, almost exclusively. Seafoam green crystal beads, and luminous puffed coins compliment the ornate silver plated chandelier style pendant and earring components. The two necklace connectors are repurposed from toggle clasp findings, and the back of the necklace is finished with silver plated brass chain, and an extender for adjustability.
This is another design, which was inspired by the contents of the October 2020 Dollar Bead Box. The two-hole, sky blue candy beads with silver wash are beautifully contrasted with tones of navy blue in the Czech glass bell flowers, teardrop beads, and 3 and 4mm fire polish beads. The back of the necklace is finished with silver plated brass chain, and an extender for adjustability. Coordinating fringe style earrings complete the fun jewelry set.
