I’ve been a jewelry-magazine editor for nearly a decade. And
if there’s one thing this experience has taught me about you,
our jewelry-magazine reader, it is that you want lots and lots of
projects so that you can learn new techniques, soak in inspira-
tion, and get ideas for your own jewelry designs. With that
in mind, we’ve put together the second-annual edition
of 101 Bracelets, Necklaces, and Earrings, a grand
compilation of favorite projects from some
of your favorite beading magazines,
including Stringing, Step-by-Step Beads,
Bead Star, and more.
I guarantee that your creative juices will be flowing, with so much inspira-
tional fodder at your fingertips! Start with the bracelet section, for instance.
Here, you’ve got thirty-six different beaded bracelet designs to peruse with
just about every type of bracelet (single-strand, multistrand, charm, cuff, and
more) and every imaginable material (pearls, glass beads, wood beads, and
more) represented. The necklace and earring sections are just as diverse.
Whatever style you’re looking for—simple, bold, short, long—it’s in here. Study
each of the forty-five beaded necklaces and your jewelry-making horizons
will surely be expanded. Then sift through the twenty earring designs and
start dreaming about the possibilities for accessorizing your lovely lobes.
When I’m in a creativity rut, I like to pick up one of the many jewelry maga-
zines sitting in the office and flip through its pages. This never fails to get me
excited again about my craft. You probably don’t have rows and rows of
beading magazines surrounding you like I do, but I promise this magazine
is the next-best thing because we’ve picked the greatest projects from all of
them for you and put them in one place. I hope you enjoy our curated collec-
tion of jewelry designs. Indulge yourself in the effusion of precious metals,
pearls, crystals, lampworked beads, and gemstones—the stuff we jewelry
makers equate with heaven.
Happy beading,

15 Separate the 12 strands into 4 groups
of 3. Gently form a 4-strand braid, being careful
not to dislodge any of the bead stops and
keeping the bead strands relatively fat.
Visualize the 4 groups as 2 pairs: Bring the
left group of each pair over the group to its
right. Bring the group just right of the middle
over the group to its left. Continue bringing the
left group of each pair over the group to its
right and bringing the group just right of the
middle over the group to its left until you reach
the end of the strands. Beginning at the jump
ring and continuing to the end of the strands,
gently press down on the braid so that the
strands settle into place. Wrap tape around
the fnished braid, about 2" from the end.
16 Remove 1 bead stop and use the strand
to string 1 crimp tube and one 9mm jump ring;
pass back through the tube and crimp. Repeat
eleven times, making sure to attach the strands
to the jump ring in the order they end up at the
end of the braid. Use one 8mm jump ring to
attach the 9mm jump ring to the bar half of
the clasp. Remove the tape around the braid.

Carole Rodgers
What you need:
FINISHED SIZE: 7"
Hematite bracelet
31 hematite 3.5×13mm 2-hole
bar beads
35 silver-plated 4mm round futed
metal beads
32 silver-plated 2×4mm disc
spacer beads
1 silver 15mm 3-strand round
box clasp
6 silver 2mm crimp beads
27" of .018 sterling-plated fexible
beading wire
Red tortoise-shell bracelet
44 red tortoise-shell 3.5×13mm
2-hole dome-top beads
43 gold-plated 1×4mm disc
spacer beads
6 gold-plated 4mm round futed metal
beads
1 gold 3-strand clasp
6 gold 2mm crimp beads
27" of .015 gold-plated fexible
beading wire
Wire cutters
Crimping pliers
Hematite bracelet
1 Cut the beading wire into three 9"
pieces. String 1 futed bead and 1 crimp
bead. Pass the wire through the middle
hole of the clasp and back through the
futed bead and crimp.
2 Push the wire up so you have about a
4mm loop around the clasp loop and about
a ½" tail. Secure the crimp with crimping
pliers and trim the excess wire.
3 String 1 silver disc alternating with
1 hematite bead until you have used all
32 silver discs and 31 hematite beads.
String 1 crimp and 1 futed bead and pass
the wire through the middle loop of the
clasp. Leave a little ease so the bracelet
will bend comfortably. Bring the wire back
through the futed bead and crimp, leaving
a 4mm loop of wire around the clasp loop.
Secure the crimp and trim the excess wire.
4 Place your bracelet on a fat surface.
Adjust the hematite beads so they alter-
nate directions through the length of the
bracelet, starting with 1 bead pointing up.
5 Attach the second wire to the outside
loop of the clasp that is closest to a bead
that is pointing up. You will have 16 up
beads and 15 down beads.
6 String 1 hematite bead and 1 futed
bead. Continue across bracelet passing
through 1 hematite and picking up 1 futed
bead as you go. When you reach the end
of the bracelet, make sure the wire is the
same length as the middle one. Attach
the wire to the loop on the clasp as before,
secure the crimp with crimping pliers, and
trim the excess wire.
7 Attach the remaining strand as you did
the previous strands. Starting with a bead
that is pointing down, string 1 hematite
bead and 1 futed bead until you reach the
other side of the bracelet. Secure this end
of the beading wire as before and trim the
excess wire.
Red tortoise-shell bracelet
1 Using gold wire, string 1 crimp, 1 futed
bead, and the middle loop of the clasp.
Bring the wire back through the futed bead
and crimp. Secure the crimp and trim the
excess wire.
2 String the dome beads alternating with
the gold spacer discs. Use alternate
holes on the dome beads so all the domes
face up. Continue stringing until all the
dome and spacer beads have been used.
3 String 1 crimp tube, 1 futed bead,
and the middle loop on the other clasp.
Secure the strand as before and trim
the excess wire.
4 Because the domes all have to face
up, your beads should already be in an
alternating pattern. Place the beads on a
fat surface and attach 1 wire to the outside
loop of the clasp. String the remaining
holes on the dome beads and secure the
wire to the other end of the clasp. Repeat
for the fnal strand.

BRACELET
What you need:
3 g size 11° cylinder beads (contrast color to your button colors)
22–26 vitrail 4mm crystal bicones
60 small mother-of-pearl “shirt” buttons,
3
/
8" diameter,
1 or 2 holes
30–35 medium buttons, ½" diameter, 1, 2, or 4 holes
10–12 large buttons, ¾" diameter, 1 or 2 holes
Braided beading thread
6½" of polyester chain, about 32 links
Size 10 or 12 beading needle
Scissors
FINISHED SIZE: 7½"
1 Stack your buttons in the same quantity as your number of
crystals, with 2 to 3 buttons per stack. Some stacks can have
medium and small buttons, some may use the large, medium, and
small buttons. Retain 1 small button for the back of each stack.
Make a small pile of seed beads and crystals for convenience.
2 Space the 3-bead stacks evenly alongside the length of your
chain. Have at least 9 stacks using the large buttons.
3 Thread your needle to the middle of a 24" piece of thread and
bring the ends together to use the thread doubled. Start with
1 stack: leaving a 4" tail, string 7 seed beads, 1 small button (for
the underside of the stack), 1 large button, 1 medium button,
and 1 small button. String 1 seed bead, 1 crystal, and 1 seed bead.
Pass back through the small, medium, large, and small buttons.
String 7 seed beads.
4 Locate the center link in your chain. Tie a secure square knot
between your working thread and the two tails; pull the beads
together snugly to form a complete loop of beads. Knot again to
secure. Pass the needle carefully through the seed beads to hide
the thread end and trim. Thread the tails on a needle and repeat to
hide the ends. Trim excess.
5 Repeat Steps 3 and 4 to attach each large stack of buttons along
the chain. Be sure to include a small button on the underside of each
stack. Space the large stacks evenly along the length of the chain.
6 Repeat Steps 3 and 4 to add the smaller stacks evenly spaced
between the large stacks. String the small buttons on the undersides
of all stacks. The fuller the bracelet, the better it will look!
7 On the second-to-last link of the chain, add a medium or small
2-button stack without a crystal; this will be used as the closure
button. Not using the crystal makes it easier to slip the loop over
it as the clasp.
8 For the loop, use a doubled thread as for the buttons. String
enough seed beads to pass snugly but easily over your non-crystal
button. Once your loop size is determined, knot the thread ends
together through the end link in a snug square knot and fnish off
as in Step 4.

1 Cut four 5" pieces of 16-gauge copper wire.
2 Using the tips of the round-nose pliers,
grasp the wire and make a loop. Hold the
loop toward the back of the pliers and spiral
the wire for one complete rotation around
the frst loop.
3 Hold the spiral with the fat-nose pliers,
and using your fngers, guide and bend
the wire in a circle shape about 15mm in
diameter. The outer circle should not touch
the spiral.
4 At the top of the spiral, use fat-nose
pliers to bend the wire up 45°. Trim the wire
to ½ ". Make a simple loop.
5 Slightly hammer the circle to fatten
the link.
6 Repeat Steps 2–5 to make 3 more links.
7 For the clasp, use 5" of copper wire,
and create a round link as in Steps 2–5.
But this time hold the wire at the top of
the spiral toward the back of the round-nose
pliers. Roll the wire over the jaws to create
a swan-style clasp. Trim the excess wire.
Hammer the top of the hook and the circular
part of the link.
8 Thread 1½ " pieces of 18-gauge wire
through the lampworked beads, and start a
wrapped loop on each side. Connect to the
spiral links and complete the wrapped loops.
Be sure that the loops are perpendicular to
one another. On the last bead, after connect-
ing the frst side to the last spiral, fnish with
a larger wrapped loop to serve as the eye for
the hook. Hammer to fatten the eye.
9 If you choose to patina the bracelet,
dip the bracelet in liver of sulfur, rinse in
cold water, and buff with steel wool. For
a nice shine, place the piece in a tumbler
for an hour.

Stephanie’s Heart NECKLACE
| Christine Strube
What you need:
1 lampworked heart focal bead
7 secondary focal beads
Accent beads (choose a variety of textures,
sizes, and colors to accent focal beads)
Size 10° and 11° seed beads
58" of .019 fexible beading wire
1 button
4 sterling silver crimp beads
26 surgical steel 24-gauge head pins
Chain-nose pliers
Round-nose pliers
Crimping pliers
Flush cutters
FINISHED SIZE: 26"
1 Stack bead combinations onto the
head pins. This piece uses six each
of three different designs and eight of
another. Create a wire-wrapped loop at
the top of each head pin.
2 Cut two lengths of beading wire.
String about 1" of size 11° seed beads
on each strand and slide them to the
middle. Thread them through the loop of
the focal bead. Bring all four ends through
an accent bead and a secondary focal
to form a beaded bail.
3 Separate the wire; 2 on each side.
String both wires of each side with the
same sequence of beads (about 1").
It will drape more smoothly if you start
with seed beads and gradually work to
larger beads.
4 On each side, separate the wires and
string a sequence of about 2" on each.
Mix beads of different sizes, shapes,
colors, and textures, and include your
beaded dangles in the mix. This piece
uses 4 in each bead sequence; for a
fuller look, use more.
5 Bring the 2 strands together and thread
them both through an accent
bead, a secondary focal, and another
bead. Separate the wires again and
repeat the sequence two more times.
6 On each side of the necklace, thread
both wires through a crimp bead. Slide
the crimp right next to the last bead,
secure it with crimping pliers, and cut
one of the wires.
7 On each side, string a large-hole
bead over the crimp and enough
beads to reach the desired length.
8 On one side, string a crimp bead,
a small glass bead, and enough seed
beads to make a loop large enough to
slip over the button. To secure the loop,
thread the wire back through the glass
bead and the crimp, pulling the slack
wire through. Secure the crimp bead with
the crimping pliers and trim excess wire.
9 On the other side, string a crimp,
a small glass bead, and enough seed
beads to make a loop large enough to
ft through the shank on the button.
Go back through the bead and crimp,
pull the slack wire through, secure the
crimp, and trim the excess wire.

and cover it with a crimp cover.
2 String 50" of red seed beads, randomly stringing 3 or

round and tube; crimp and cover.
4 Repeat Steps 1–3 four times.
5 Repeat Step 1–3 fve times, replacing the red seed beads
used in Step 2 with purple seed beads. Set aside.
6 Use 53" of wire to string 1 crimp tube. Slide the tube to 8"

between the tape marks. Starting at the inside edge of the right
tape mark, coil the coiling strand back over itself and toward
the left tape mark, keeping the coils frm, but not too tight.
Keep wrapping until the remaining length of the coiling strand
is slightly shorter than the coil itself.

My inspiration for jewelry making comes from everything
around me, and mixed media is by far my favorite medium.
In my own work, I love to mix different components such as
metals, crystals, resins, and f bers into really fun layered pieces.
And you, too, can easily build your own components out of simple
materials and techniques. Become an expert in mixed-media
jewelry with fabric beads, resin, wire, and more.
With these accessible mixed-media jewelry techniques, you’ll add
depth and layers to your own pieces and best of all you’ll have fun
in the process. So grab a cup of coffee, sit at my table and join me,
let’s make some jewelry.

What you need:
2 lampworked glass beads,
about 8×15mm
6 smoked topaz 4mm crystal bicones
6 khaki 4.5mm Simplicity crystals
10 size 11° topaz seed beads
16 Bali-style 4mm sterling
silver spacers
2 silver 21-gauge 2" eye pins
6 silver 22-gauge 1.5" head pins
2" of 3.1mm oval cable chain
2 ear wires
Round-nose pliers
Wire cutters
FINISHED SIZE: 2"
1 Carefully open the eye of 1 eye pin.
String one end of one 2-link piece of
chain and close the loop.
2 Use 1 head pin to string the fol-
lowing: 1 khaki crystal, 1 Bali spacer,
1 smoked topaz crystal, and 1 Bali
spacer. Begin a wire-wrapped loop.
Attach the loop to the bottom link of
the chain, then complete the wire-
wrapped loop.
3 Use 1 head pin to string the following:
1 smoked topaz crystal, 1 Bali spacer, 1
khaki crystal, and 1 Bali spacer. Begin a
wire-wrapped loop. Attach the loop to the
top link of the chain, then complete the
wire wrap.
4 Use 1 head pin to string the following:
1 Bali spacer, 1 smoked topaz crystal,
1 Bali spacer, and 1 khaki crystal. Begin a
wire-wrapped loop. Attach the loop to the
eye of the eye pin, then complete the wire
wrap.
5 Use the previous eye pin to string the fol-
lowing: 1 Bali spacer, 1 lampworked bead,
and about 4 seed beads. Fill the hole of
the lampworked bead with seed beads
to stabilize it on the wire. This keeps the
beads from wobbling around. String 1 Bali
spacer and 1 topaz seed bead.
6 Begin a wire-wrapped loop and attach
it to the ear wire. Complete the wrap and
trim the excess wire.
7 Repeat Steps 1–6 for a second earring.

The techniques and tools described in this primer are used in this issue’s projects. For additional technique
information, including videos and illustrations, visit beadingdaily.com and click on the “glossary” tab.
CRIMPING
crimp
tube
CRIMP TUBES are seamless
metal tubes used to secure
the end of a beading wire. To
use, string a crimp tube and
the connection finding (i.e.,
the loop of the clasp). Pass
back through the tube, leaving
a short tail. Use the back
notch of the crimping pliers
to press the length of the
tube down between the wires,
enclosing them in separate
chambers of the crescent
shape. Rotate the tube 90°
and use the front notch of the
pliers to fold the two cham-
bers onto themselves, forming
a clean cylinder. Trim the
excess wire.
CRIMP BEADS are serrated
metal beads. Twisted crimp
tubes and crimp beads can be
secured by squeezing them
flat with chain- or flat-nose
pliers.
CRIMP COVERS hide crimp
tubes and give a professional
finish. To attach, gently hold a
crimp cover in
the front
notch of the
crimping
pliers. Insert
the crimped
tube and
gently
squeeze the pliers, encasing
the tube inside the cover.
CRIMP/CORD ENDS
consist of a loop
attached to a tube.
Dab the leather,
plastic, ribbon, or
other cord with
jewelry glue, then
place it in the
crimp/cord end. If you’re using
a crimp end, crimp it as you
would a crimp tube.
placing a
crimp cover
crimp/cord
end
LARK’S HEAD KNOTS are great
for securing stringing material
to another
piece, such
as a ring or
a donut:
Fold the
stringing
material in
half. Pass the fold through a
ring or donut, then pull the
ends through the loop created
and pull snug.
square knot
A SQUARE KNOT is the classic
sturdy knot suitable for most
stringing materials. Make an
overhand knot, passing the
right end over the left end.
Make another overhand knot,
this time passing the left end
over the right end. Pull tight.
WIREWORKING
METAL WIRE comes in many
finishes and gauges. The
lower the gauge number, the
thicker the wire. The hardness
or softness of wire is called
“temper.” Most wire comes in
dead-soft, half-hard, and hard
tempers. Unless otherwise
noted, wire used in this issue
is half-hard—the best temper
for making strong loops and
other shapes.
opening a jump ring
JUMP RINGS connect holes
and loops. Open a jump ring
by grasping each side of its
opening with a pair of pliers;
don’t pull apart. Instead, twist
in opposite directions so that
you can open and close
without distorting the shape.
lark's head
knot
fush/wire
cutters
head pins eye pins
HEAD PINS are straight wires
with a flat disc, ball, or other
shape at one end. Eye pins
are straight wires that end in
a loop.
simple loop
To form a SIMPLE LOOP, use
flat-nose pliers to make a 90°
bend at least ½" from the end
of the wire. Use round-nose
pliers to grasp the wire after
the bend; roll the pliers toward
the bend, but not past it, to
preserve the 90° bend. Use
your thumb to continue the
wrap around the nose of the
pliers. Trim the wire next to
the bend. Open a simple loop
just as you would a jump ring.
wrapped
loop
To form a WRAPPED LOOP,
begin with a 90° bend at least
2" from the end of the wire.
Use round-nose pliers to form
a simple loop with a tail over-
lapping the bend. Wrap the tail
tightly down the neck of the
wire to create a couple of
knot cup
KNOT CUPS (aka bead tips)
hold and hide the crimped or
knotted end of a cord or wire
and have a metal tab that
attaches to a ring or clasp.
WIREGUARDS provide a
smooth metal channel to
protect the stringing material
from chaffing
against a con-
nector. String a
crimp tube,
then pass up
through one
half of the
guard and
down the other half. Pass the
guard and wire through the
loop of the connector, pass
the wire back through the
crimp tube, snug the tube up
to the guard, then crimp.
PASS THROUGH
VS PASS BACK THROUGH
Pass through means to move
your needle (or beading wire)
in the same direction that the
beads have been strung. Pass
back through means to move
your needle (or beading wire)
in the opposite direction.
KNOTTING
overhand knot
The OVERHAND KNOT is the
basic knot for tying off thread:
Make a loop with the stringing
material. Pass the cord that
lies behind the loop over the
front cord then through the
loop and pull snug.

coils. Trim the excess wire to
finish. Make a DOUBLE-
WRAPPED LOOP by wrapping
the wire back up over the coils,
toward the loop, and trimming
the wire tail at the loop.
wrapped-
loop dangle
DANGLES can be strung as
they are, attached using jump
rings, or linked to other loops.
Use a head pin or eye pin to
string the bead(s), then form a
simple or wrapped loop.
wrapped-loop
links
LINK a wrapped loop to
another loop by passing the
wire through the previous loop
before wrapping the tail down
the neck of the wire.
wrapped-
loop bail
WRAPPED-LOOP BAILS turn
side-drilled beads, usually
teardrops, into pendants.
Center the bead on a 3" or
longer piece of wire. Bend both
ends of the wire up the sides
and across the top of the bead.
Bend one end straight up at
the center of the bead, then
wrap the other wire around it
to form a couple of coils. Form
a wrapped loop with the
the wire over the previous
spiral with your fingers for as
many revolutions as desired.
hammering
To HAMMER, place your wire
on a steel bench block or
anvil. Use the flat end of a
ball-peen or chasing hammer
to flatten the wire, then use
the ball end of the hammer to
add texture.
OXIDIZING SILVER
WITH LIVER OF SULFUR
Always wear vinyl or latex
gloves, work in a well-
ventilated area (liver of sulfur
has an unpleasant odor that
quickly dissipates), and care-
fully read manufacturer’s
directions when using
chemicals.
Wash all silver to be colored
with soap and water. Mix liver
of sulfur nuggets in hot (not
boiling) water according to
manufacturer’s directions in
a disposable container. Most
suggest mixing 1 pea-size
nugget for every 1 cup of
water. A weaker solution will
produce a lighter patina with
warm hues; a stronger solu-
tion will produce a darker
patina.
straight-up wire, wrapping it
back down over the already-
formed coils. Trim the excess
wire.
cone
Use CONES to finish a multi-
strand piece. Attach each
strand of beads to a wrapped
loop or an eye pin. Use the
wrapped-loop wire or eye pin
to string the wide end of a
cone, covering the ends of the
strands; form a wrapped loop
at the tip of the cone that
attaches to a clasp.
coil
To make a coil, use one hand
to hold the end of your wire
against a mandrel (or whatever
object you want to coil
around). With the other hand,
wrap the wire around the
mandrel. When finished, slide
the coil off the mandrel.
spiral
To start a SPIRAL (or scroll),
make a small loop at the end
of a wire with round-nose
pliers. Enlarge the piece by
holding onto the spiral with
chain-nose pliers and pushing
For ease of dipping your
silver into the solution, use
12" of beading or sewing
thread to string the bead(s),
chain, or finding(s) you wish
to oxidize; tie the ends in an
overhand knot. If coloring
small items that cannot be
strung (such as crimp covers),
you will need to drop them in
the solution and then quickly
scoop them out with a spoon
or fork (fig a).
Or, place small items on a
paper towel and brush them
with the solution; this method,
however, often results in
uneven coloring.
Dip the silver in the solution
as many times as necessary
to achieve the desired patina.
If the silver becomes darker
than desired, it can always be
lightened later by buffing or
polishing.
Rinse off the silver in cold
water (fig b). To further stop
oxidation, dip the silver in a
weak solution (1:4) of baking
soda and water. Remove any
threads you used to suspend
the metal. Allow the silver to
dry, then, if desired, use a pol-
ishing cloth or #0000 (extra
fine) steel wool to buff and
polish it (fig c).
Store all used solution in
the disposable container. After
about a week, it will degrade
enough to be washed down a
sink (preferably a utility sink)
with a lot of water. Contact
your local hazardous waste
facility for more information on
disposing of the liquid safely.
