A Few of the Pieces Featured in the Video:

fancy jasper and garnet leaf pendant necklace

The pendant includes the loop of one of the toggle clasps contained in the Sept. 2020 Bargain Bead Box. The leaf component is from a past Bargain Bead Box, and happens to go nicely with the antique copper findings from the “Fancy Forest” theme. Learn how to make the  quick and easy coordinating toggle clasp earrings in this recent video tutorial.

This stunning round fancy jasper pendant, also from the Sept. Bargain Bead Box, is bezeled with a combo of 11/0 Miyuki Delicas, 15/0 seed beads, and 15/0 Charlottes in peyote stitch. Next, I added Delica beads around the sides, skipping every two, leaving small gaps. In the gaps, I added the small garnet beads, and made two rows in this manner, which alternate with each other.

jade memory wire bracelet inside

Upon viewer request, this bracelet contains many of the contents found in the Sept. 2020 Curated Bead Box: jadeite gemstone chips, pink/green/silver glass rounds, and memory wire. You can check out the unboxing video HERE, and learn more about the subscription. 

Stay tuned for the future tutorial! This bracelet is an original design, which drew its inspiration from the monthly beading collection called Paradise Aquatic, by Eureka Crystal Beads. The twisted light gold jewelry wire from, is also featured in this design, and I think I will also have to pick up that product in silver; it’s a great product! 


Most of my pieces are inspired by the mystery contents of monthly bead boxes. Curious which bead box is the best (for you)? Check out this video for more info!
