6 BEAD STYLE | JANUARY 2014
I’m already thinking about 2014 and looking forward to the fash and
sparkle of the new year. Speaking of sparkle, we’ll show you how to
embellish with terrifc new crystal products. Need some arm candy
for a holiday party? Make a quick bangle by setting brilliant fat-back
crystals with colored gel (p. 30). Or try Debra Saucier’s clever pendant
(p. 32): Arrange crystal drops in Crystal Clay, then brush on mica
powder to give the piece depth and dimension.
If you’re looking to try a new technique, step into soutache (p. 60).
Jane Danley Cruz shows you how to shape, stack, stitch, and glue
these beautiful braids — along with 10 gorgeous earring designs.
Maybe this will be the year you start your own business. If so, we’re here
to help! Jean Yates is debuting her new column, String & Sell (p. 52).
With friendly and knowledgeable advice, she’ll walk you through selling
your handmade jewelry. This issue, she covers the basics you’ll need
to get started.
I couldn’t close out the year without also saying goodbye to my mistakes:
In our November issue’s “Bright on!” fnds from the Bead&Button Show,
I listed the wrong URL for the Venetian beads. You can fnd the beads at
bellavenetianbeads.com. I regret the error and any confusion it caused.
And now we’re moving on. Whether you’re inspired by new products,
new techniques, or new experiences, cheers to a sparkling 2014!

necklaces
Bling to string
Two beaders, two ways: Strong finishing
“I love the versatility
of bullion wire!”
– Naomi Fujimoto
You’ll often see pearl necklaces
fnished with French (bullion)
wire. Bullion is a fnely coiled
wire that protects the stringing
material from abrasion. One
advantage of bullion wire is its
adaptability: Because it’s sold
in long strands, you can cut it
to the exact length you need, so it’s great for large loops.
You can even fnd it in bright colors if you want to match
beading wire hues for a coordinated fnishing.
“Wire Guardians are my
go-to for protecting
beading wire.”
– Kelsey Lawler
Professionally made jewelry
comes down to the details;
consider both structural integrity
and a clean look, even up close.
To achieve both strength and
polish, string a Wire Guardian
before attaching a clasp. Wire
Guardians protect fexible beading
wire from undue wear, preventing the strands from eventually
breaking. There’s nothing more professional than jewelry that
stands the test of time.
BeadStyleMag.com/videos
No matter what your style — classic, dainty, nautical,
or blinged out — there’s a knotted necklace with
your name on it!

12 BEAD STYLE | JANUARY 2014
January
Substitute red glass for
garnets, then take the design
modern or vintage, based on
your choices in bezels and
bead caps. Garnet is meant
to protect the wearer during
travel, so pack the jewels for
your winter vacation, too.
February
Amethyst brings courage,
so go for a bold organic
bib necklace or statement
earrings. (Try vitrail light
teardrops if you like pink
amethyst.) Whatever you
wear, this gem will give
you the confdence you
need to turn some heads.
March
The aquamarine girl’s options
range from earthy nuggets
on leather to a luxe collar with
light azore crystals — which
are a closer color match to
the real stone. These pure
and soothing jewels will help
you fnd enlightenment in the
year ahead.

Turquoise chaton earrings
by Becky Nunn
April
As a diamond girl you
value constancy, but you
can venture into new style
territory with an on-trend
bracelet: Wrap vibrant
ribbon around cup chain
in an armful of bangles, or
embellish with waxed linen
cord in a contrasting color.
May
Emerald has many powers,
but what could be more
important than soothing a
troubled mind? Make wise
(and affordable) fashion
choices with options in Lucite
or Czech glass. Or connect
deep green crystals and
channel-set charms in
cascading earrings. Classic
and stylish? Good thinking!
June
Pearls symbolize purity and
innocence. Add to your
repertoire of classics with
a multistrand coin pearl
necklace. Or string outside
the style box with a rainbow
of stick pearls or keshis (p. 68).
July
You’re never at a loss for
passion: Channel that high
energy into a crystal charm
bracelet with brilliantly
colored ruby briolettes.
Fun options like chatons or
Crystal Clay will also help
enhance your natural glow.
August
If you’re trying to gain clarity
or see a new perspective,
peridot can help. The stone’s
fresh green hue lights up
designs galore! Mix these
affordable stones with
turquoise, or add purple and
berry accents in a beautiful
complementary palette.
September
Sapphire represents a mix
of traits: power, kindness,
wisdom, faith. Be true-blue
with crystals in light and dark
sapphire. Or make jewelry
that’s as multifaceted as
you are — the gemstone is
available in just about every
color, so try an ombré strand.
October
In the opal, you can see all
colors. Play up the abundance
with opal crystals in many
different shades. Or string
sea glass for an opalescent
effect. Of course, there are
always blue or pink Peruvian
opals — plenty of options if
you enjoy a change in colors
(or viewpoints!).
November
Topaz is said to direct energy
where it’s needed most. Try
light Colorado topaz crystals
or even blue topaz: It’s a
refreshing change from
golden brown and can help
you become a better
negotiator — good if you’re
a strong-willed Scorpio.
December
Turquoise can both calm and
reenergize. Go neutral with
beads to match the stone’s
matrixing, or layer bright
chatons for a fun pop of color.
Just don’t overdo it: Too much
turquoise is said to scatter
your thoughts!


To make the season bright,
attach ornaments in an
opulent wreath. Learn how

Charms are perfect for

This particular container from Bead Storage
Solutions has enough room for a bead design
board with a to-be-continued project. The
clear lid keeps everything safe and dust-free
while also showing you what’s inside.
Contain
yourself
Sometimes you have to choose
function over fashion — but other
times you can have the best of both
worlds! Whether the case is clear
or colorful, these storage solutions
are worth getting excited about.
– Kelsey Lawler
Tools and spools
Longtime beader Elizabeth Ward was tired of impractical
storage systems, so she created Bead Storage Solutions.
Her system’s key feature: transparency. This deep storage
bin includes removable caddies. There’s a pliers caddy,
a spool caddy, and a larger bin to hold the extras.

Tidy tower
We’re loving this Creative Options bead tower for being

Turquoise
Come December, I live in layers. To ft into my winter wardrobe, jewelry has to be something
I can throw on over a black turtleneck or drapey sweater. This necklace fts the bill! Just
connect turquoise and pyrite in one long loop for chic and easy style. – Kelsey Lawler
1
OFDLMBDF r Cut a 3-in. (7.6 cm)
piece of wire. On one end, make
the first half of a wrapped loop
(Basics, p. 78). String three or four
turquoise chips and make the first half
of a wrapped loop. Make 16 to 20 chip
units. Make 13 to 16 units with one
turquoise nugget and 13 to 16 units
with one pyrite nugget.
2
Attach a chip unit, a turquoise
nugget unit, and a pyrite unit,
completing the wraps as you go.
Repeat the pattern six or seven times.

Garnet
January’s birthstone tends to be a
bit dark for my taste, so for these
earrings I accented garnet chain with
iolite and apatite. This unexpected
color combination made me look at
garnet in a whole new light, and I
must say, I’ve come to appreciate this
little red gemstone. – Kelsey Lawler

a 5-in./13 cm (long), a 4½-in./

OFDLMBDF r Cut three 21–25-in.
(53–64 cm) pieces of beading
wire. On each wire, center 25 crystal
rondelles.
I got the idea for this
design from Anna Draeger,
who was an associate editor
at Bead&Button. She once
designed a simple crystal
necklace on beading wire, and
I whipped up my own version
with leftovers from my knotted
statement necklace (p. 56). Mine
pairs sterling silver beading wire with
grey crystals, but you can also string a
beautiful contrast with any of the colorful
wire available. – Naomi Fujimoto
2
On one side, over all three wires,
string a crimp tube and a lobster
claw clasp. Go back through the
crimp tube and tighten the wires.
Make a folded crimp (Basics, p. 78).
Close a crimp cover over the crimp.
3
Repeat step 2 on the other side,
substituting a 1
1
⁄2-in. (3.8 cm) piece
of chain for the clasp. On a head pin,
string three rondelles. Make the first
half of a wrapped loop (Basics). Attach
the end link and complete the wraps.
Smart
storage
Store this necklace gently
to avoid putting kinks
in the beading
wire.

Use chainnose pliers to make a
bend about 2
1
⁄4 in. (5.7 cm) from the
flattened end.
3
On a bench block, hammer half
of the earring wire as shown.

gel until thoroughly mixed. Apply a
liberal coat (about 2 mm thick) to
the bezel on two sides of the bangle.
Scrape off the excess gel with the
clean end of the stick or a tissue.
Allow to set for 25 minutes.

What you’ll need

◆ Insta Bling gel
◆ craft stick or coffee stirrer
◆ Crystal Katana or jewel-setter tool
◆ tissues (optional)

Tool tips
º Insta B|ing comes in
a [ar or an easy-to-use
pen. Both work great!
º I recommend the
Crysta| Katana too| for
positioning the crysta|s.
Use |ight pressure so
the ge| doesn't ooze.
For even p|acement,
app|y the crysta| in
the center of each row
ñrst, then work outward.
º There wi|| be some
shrinkage as the Insta
B|ing dries. Use the
second coat to ñ|| in the
gaps, and scrape away
the excess as you work.
2
Apply a second coat of gel to
smooth out the gaps, and set the
flat-back crystals in the gel. Scrape
off the excess gel or wipe with a
tissue. Allow to dry overnight.
3
Apply gel and flat backs to the
remaining sides of the bangle. ✳
This cuff b|ank makes
crysta||izing easy. Simp|y
use Gem-Tac to g|ue
7-8 mm ñat backs to the
round b|anks and 3 mm
ñat backs in between.
Foolproof cuff

Insta Bling is both an adhesive and a sparkling filler for
bezels. You can use it as a colored glue or by itself.
Either way, you’ll love the look — and feel! — of this
clever new product.

OFDLMBDF r With gloves on,
measure equal parts of Crystal
Clay. You’ll need about a grape-size
amount of combined clay. Use your

two minutes.
2
Fill a bezel pendant with clay,
forming a domed top. Apply a
bit of olive oil to your gloved fingertip
and smooth out any fingerprints or
cracks in the clay.
3
Insert the narrow end of a polygon
drop in the clay along the inside
edge of the bezel. Repeat with 10 to
12 drops to make a ring, spacing the
drops close together and angling
them away from the center.

Craft a crystal p
Embed crystal drops in clay to create a brilliant necklace
by Debra Saucier
Here’s a new use for crystals: Flip them upside down and set them in a bezel
with clay. I played with different ideas for this pendant and liked polygon drops
the best; they have clean angles that allow the color of the clay and mica
powder to reflect intensely through the crystal. The finished pendant is a tribute
to the crystal formations found in nature.

Make a ring of seven drops inside
the previous ring, making sure to
place the drops at an angle.
5
Insert one to three drops straight
up in the center of the clay.
6
Using a makeup brush or
paintbrush, apply mica powder
to the entire piece, making sure no
clay shows through. Allow the
pendant to cure for 14 to 16 hours.
Wash it under warm water with
foaming soap to remove the excess
mica powder from the drops.
7
Cut a 26–28-in. (66–71 cm) piece
of chain. String the pendant. Or
open the center link as you would
a jump ring (Basics, p. 78) and attach
the pendant. Close the jump ring.

On one end, use a jump ring
to attach a lobster claw clasp.
Repeat on the other end, substituting
a soldered jump ring for the clasp.

The
right angles
By angling the drops when you
position them in the clay, you

allow for more light refraction

1
crystal-embellished bracelet
Open a 9 mm jump ring (Basics,
p. 78). Attach the hole of a coin button
and close the jump ring. Attach a
second jump ring. Make a second
button unit.
2
Attach two 9 mm jump rings
to each side of an oval cosmic
crystal. Use two 6 mm jump rings to
attach the pairs of 9 mm jump rings
as shown.
3
Cut a 6–8-in. (15–20 cm) piece of
leather. On the back of the leather,
find the center point. On each side,
make a mark (Mark, right) 1 in.
(2.5 cm) from the center. On each side,
make a mark 1–1¼ in. (2.5–3.2 cm)
from the previous mark.
4
a Use a two-hole punch to punch
a 2 mm hole at each mark (Punch
patrol, p. 40).

2
b On a bench block, layer the
bottom half of a rivet, an inner hole
of the leather, the hole of a coin
button, and the top half of the rivet
(Rivet, right).
c Hammer each side of the rivet
with light, precise strokes, taking
care not to damage the crystal.
Repeat with the other inner hole and
the other coin button (Fit, right).
5
Check the fit and trim the leather
on each end if necessary (Trim,
right). On each end, punch a hole
about ¼ in. (6 mm) from the end.
String a slide component. Fold the
end over so the holes line up, and
secure with a rivet.
6
On one end, use a 6 mm jump
ring to attach one to three 8 mm
jump rings. Attach a 6 mm jump ring
and a large-hole daisy spacer. On the
other end, use one to three 6 mm
jump rings to attach a hook clasp.
www.BeadStyleMag.com 39
I love the steampunk style of leather and gears — the two go hand-in-hand. I also enjoy
playing with juxtaposition for a more unexpected look, so I threw a cosmic crystal into
the mix. The result is casual sophistication: an everyday look for a steampunk princess.
Mark
When making marks on a piece
of dark leather, use a metallic pen
so the dots show up.
Rivet
These two-part rivets from
TierraCast make riveting easy!
Once you’ve stacked your rivet
halves and components, use your
fingers to pinch the stack together;
the rivet will lock into place even
before you begin to hammer.
Fit
The crystal embellishment is
meant to be loose when the leather
is laid flat. When the bracelet is
curved around your wrist, the
crystal link will then be taut against
the leather.
Trim
When checking the fit of the
crystal-embellished bracelet,
remember that you will lose
1–1
1
⁄4 in. (2.5–3.2 cm) on each side
when folding over the leather, but
you will gain it back in finishing
with a large clasp and multiple
jump rings.

Leather looks
From natural to metallic to bright, finding leather that suits your style is a cinch!
1
gear-embellished bracelet º Cut a
4–6-in. (10–15 cm) piece of leather.
On the back, make a mark at the
center point and on each side 1½ in.
(3.8 cm) from the center mark. Follow
step 4 of the crystal-embellished
bracelet to punch holes. Use a rivet
to attach a gear and flat bead cap
to each hole. Check the fit, and trim
the leather on each end within 1 in.
(2.5 cm) of the finished length.
2
On each end, punch a hole about
¼ in. (6 mm) from the end. Use
a rivet to attach an end cap. Open
a 6 mm jump ring (Basics, p. 78).
On one end, attach the loop of the
end cap and a hook clasp. Close the
jump ring. Repeat on the other end,
substituting an 8 mm jump ring for
the clasp. Attach a 6 mm jump ring
and a daisy charm. ✳

Punch patrol

of a two-hole punch. Turn the
punch’s wheel to make holes
in a variety of sizes; for this
project, punch a 2 mm hole
for each rivet.

These little beauties have so much
sparkle, you can go with the humblest
of elements — like a hammered jump
ring — to show them off.

Connect a handful of leftover
crystal charms in sparkly
earrings ◆ by Naomi Fujimoto
Everyone’s been having so much fun with crystal
embellishments, I wanted to play too! Instead of
relegating these channel charms to a workroom
drawer, lost among all the bicones and rounds,
I made simple earrings to join in the sparkle party.

Ironing out
the details
º Make sure the iron is hot before
you begin.
º After you remove the iron, app|y
additiona| pressure with a c|ean, soft
c|oth for 5 to 10 seconds or unti| the
mesh has cooled to hand-warm. The
adhesive should lightly penetrate the
ribbon and be somewhat visib|e on
the reverse side.
º If the adhesive doesn't ho|d, repeat
the entire ironing process, ho|ding
the iron for 30 to 35 seconds.
º Do not use an iron with steam
vents.
º Hot Fix adhesive requires a 24-hour
curing time. You can hand wash the
piece after this period, if necessary.
5
On the eye pin, string a cone and
a rondelle. Make the first half of
a wrapped loop. Attach three crystal
units and complete the wraps. Repeat
on the other end. ✳
“Versatile
designs are so
wonderful!”
www.BeadStyleMag.com 43
I’ve worked with silk ribbons for years. Combining them
with crystal mesh just made good fashion sense. You can
wear this as a choker, a bracelet, or even as a headband
— channeling your inner gypsy, of course! The great thing
is, the mesh comes with a Hot Fix adhesive, so there’s no
sewing involved. Iron on!

Multistrand jewelry
gets a fancy finishing
by Kelsey Lawler
I’ve been all about emerald this past
year. I’m sure that even if Pantone picks
another pretty hue come January, I’ll
still be donning green. These dyed jade
rounds and rondelles are too gorgeous
to wear for only one season. Add a
sparkling box clasp and these pieces
do tend toward “holiday,” but I plan to
take them into 2014 and beyond. With
such dazzling jewels in tow, it’s sure to
be a fabulous new year!
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN
stringing multistrand jewelry

For the middle
strand, repeat the
pattern in step 1,
stringing it 1 in.
(2.5 cm) longer than
the shortest strand.
Repeat for the longest
strand, stringing it
2 in. (5 cm) longer
than the middle strand
(Evening out, p. 48).
On each end of each
strand, string: rondelle,
crimp bead, rondelle,
Wire Guardian, the
corresponding loop of
half of a box clasp (Clasp,
then crimp, p. 48). Go
back through the beads
just strung and tighten
the wires. Crimp the crimp
beads (Basics, p. 78)
and trim the excess wire.
Use chainnose or
crimping pliers to close
a crimp cover over
each crimp.
OFDLMBDF r Cut three pieces of beading wire, each
3 in. (7.6 cm) longer than the previous piece. For the
shortest strand, string a round bead and a rondelle.
Repeat, interspersing crystals as desired (All aboard!,
p. 48), until the strand is within 1½ in. (3.8 cm) of the
finished length. End with a round.

All aboard!
As you’re stringing, lay the strands
on a bead board to see how the
rounds line up and where to
intersperse crystals. I staggered
crystals about every 1½ in.
(3.8 cm) throughout the necklace.
Evening out
Before finishing the necklace,
make sure all of the strands line
up at the desired length on your
bead board. If necessary, string
a rondelle on each end to even
things out.
Clasp, then crimp
When working with a multistrand
box clasp: Crimp the strands on
one side of the clasp, then close the
clasp and crimp the remaining ends.
This allows you to curve the strands
so you don’t over-tighten and crowd
the beads.
CSBDFMFU r Cut three
pieces of beading
wire (Basics, p. 78).
On each wire, string
three pearls and a
crystal. Repeat two
or three times, then
string three pearls.
On each end of each
wire, string a crimp
bead, a pearl, and
the corresponding loop
of half of a clasp (Clasp,
then crimp, below). Go back
through the beads just strung
and tighten the wire. Crimp
the crimp beads (Basics)
and trim the excess wire.

Getting started
What you’ll need to set up an online shop

by Jean Yates
1
Think about the big
picture before you
dive in. Etsy seller
Lorelei Eurto, whose
brand also includes
a blog and videos, says,
“Pick a clever business name
that will be easy for shoppers
to remember.” Keep it short
and avoid hyphens.
2
Don’t forget
business cards:
At a minimum, list
your shop name
and URL. Yes,
you’re selling online, but it’s
handy to give your card to
people who admire your
jewelry in person. You can
also include business cards
in your shipments; they’re
handy for little thank-you
notes, too.
3
Make sure the
photos you use
really show off
your jewelry.
Lorelei, who has
been selling for seven years,
stresses the importance of
great photography: “This
little element can make all
the difference! I see so many
people trying to start their
online businesses and they
have beautiful jewelry, but
are failing at portraying it as
such.” Don’t worry, though
— we’ll bring you more
photography tips in an
upcoming column. For
now, visit ArtJewelryMag
.com for Associate Editor
Annie Pennington’s “Quick
tips for taking great photos.”

4
Pricing your
jewelry can be
difficult. One
basic way to price:
Add the costs
of materials, labor, and
overhead, then double that
number for a retail price.
But there’s an emotional
aspect to pricing, too. For
example, Alissa Smith’s most
popular sellers are her druzy
stud earrings, most of which
are in the mid-$20 range.
She has been told her prices
are too low, but that’s a
conscious choice: “I am
pricing my jewelry in a
way that is affordable and
enjoyable, instead of a
stressful experience. I try
to make everything as
reasonable as possible.”
Once upon a time, you simply learned jewelry-making
techniques. Now you’re way beyond that. You have top-
notch skills and workmanship, and you’ve even developed
your own signature style. Your designs are attracting
attention. So. How do you turn your hobby into a business
where you’re selling to a bigger market than friends of
friends? Here are your business basics.

– Natsuko Hanks
“I wish I had known more about
social media and gotten involved
with it sooner. It really is a
wonderful tool to reach new
people. Instagram has become
my new obsession.”
– Alissa Wrenn Smith
3 Etsy sellers: What I wish I’d known
“I would’ve probably waited a little
longer before getting my shop up
and running. I’ve learned things
along the way — such as
photography, pricing, branding my
business, and picking a business
name — that could’ve made a big
difference in my success early on.”
– Lorelei Eurto
5
If you’re going to
sell online, PayPal
is a must. And
before you jump
into online selling,
do a little research before
deciding on your shipping
policies. When can a buyer
expect you to ship their
purchase? Can you
accommodate requests
for upgraded shipping?
Long term, how will you
handle the production and
shipping demands of a
thriving business? Natsuko
Hanks has sold more than
3,000 pieces in her six years
on Etsy. She didn’t think
about the volume of orders
when she started: “I didn’t
even know I could have a
business when I started my
shop; it was just a place to
show off my jewelry. I was
so surprised when I had my
first order!”
6
Remember that
your brand is
about more than
just your jewelry.
Lorelei suggests:
“Keep a cohesive look with
all of your branding: your
blog, business cards, jewelry
tags, website, and online
shops.” Your packaging will
also give buyers a sense of
your brand, so find or make
something to reflect that.
After you’ve mailed the
goodies, file all of your
shipping records in one
place. Create a dedicated
space for preparing and
managing shipments.
And give yourself time for
success. Alissa, who sells
her jewelry full time, says,
“I find it fun and challenging
to learn new things every
day. I am slowly but surely
improving my shop and
trying to branch out into new
markets.” So keep going! ✳

Tie up affordable
crystals in a
stunning necklace
by Naomi Fujimoto
With its classic styling, a knotted necklace can make the
rounds from work to dinner to holiday party. But my favorite
one, a black and grey number by Rosantica, costs upwards
of $500. So I decided to make my own. These Chinese
crystals cast a brilliant sparkle, and I love the icy, wintry
feel of the pale colors (Color notes, page 58). You can also
create your own palette: Try a single color, dark beads with
a few light strands as highlights, or even a two-tone knot.

and complete the wraps.
Transfer student
Think of transferring — rather
than stringing — the beads
from the original strand to your
beading wire. You’ll save a lot
of time. Also, make sure to trim
the original strand as you go.
Otherwise it will start to buckle,
making it harder to transfer the
beads without dropping any.

Color notes
For my 20-strander, I strung eight
strands each of grey and lavender
crystals. Because the purple crystals
were more intensely hued, I strung only
four strands of those. When you’re at
your local bead shop, play with the
colors to see what proportions you like.
I spent a lot of time (loosely) knotting
strands until I found the
combination I liked.

Create a bevy of earrings with these versatile fiber braids
by Jane Danley Cruz
It’s all the braided rage! Soutache is a narrow, flat, decorative braid formed by thin
fibers woven around two parallel cords. The fibers can be cotton, polyester, rayon,
or a combination. Because you’re using multiple pieces for each earring, you can
create a variety of colorful effects.
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN
sewing onto beading foundation | bead appliqué
Sew
soutache

1
FBSSJOHT r For each earring: Apply
a thin coat of glue to the back of
a cabochon and place it in the center
of a piece of beading foundation. Allow
to dry. Color around the cabochon
with a permanent marker.
2
Place a piece of cup chain around
the cabochon, making sure it sits
flat and even on the foundation. Trim
the excess cup chain. Use a toothpick
to apply glue to the foundation around
the cabochon and attach the cup chain.
Allow to dry. Trim the backing close to
the cup chain.
3
Cut 10-in. (25 cm) pieces of purple
and black soutache braid. Thread
a needle with a 24-in. (61 cm) piece of
thread and tie an overhand knot on one
end (Basics, p. 78). Sew through the
foundation at one end of the cabochon.
Sew through the center groove in the
purple braid.
4
Sew back through the center groove
in the braid and down through the
foundation. Continue to stitch back
and forth through the foundation and
the braid (Shaping, p. 63), until you’ve
stitched halfway around the cabochon.
Go across the back of the cabochon
and stitch together the foundation
and the braid on the other half of the
cabochon.
5
Wrap the black braid around the
purple braid (Stacking, p. 63) and
the cabochon, and pinch the braids
together where they meet. Sew through
the stacks (Joining, p. 63).
6
String a pearl and wrap the stack
around it. Sew through the stack
at the point where it meets the hole of
the pearl.
7
Wrap the stack around the pearl and
pull it to the back of the cabochon.
Sew through the stack with small
stitches so the thread is not visible
from the front (Ending a stack, p. 63).
Attach another pearl. Trim the excess
braid from each stack.
8
Cut 12-in. (30 cm) pieces of orchid,
delphinium, and black braids, and
create a three-braid stack. Sew through
the foundation and the two-braid stack.
String an 80 seed bead and sew through
the center of the three-braid stack.




Change the shape of
the cabochons and accent
beads for fabulous dangles!

Sew back and forth,
adding 80 seed beads
between the stacks. Pull the
stack to the back of the
cabochon, and end as in
step 7. Repeat along the
other edge. Tie overhand
knots on the back of the
piece, and trim the excess
thread.
10
Cut 4-in. (10 cm)
pieces of charcoal
and silver braid. Make a
stack with the silver on the
bottom. Knot the end of
a 16-in. (41 cm) piece of
thread, and sew up through
the stack at the midpoint.
Sew back through the
stack and string a 6 mm
round bead. Pinch the
stacks and make a join
(Joining, p. 63). Sew through
the stack four or five times,
and trim the excess braid,
leaving a short stem.
11
Place the stem
behind the cabochon
between the two pearls.
Tack the stem in place on
the foundation.
12
Working on the back,
sew through the
stack at the top of the
6 mm bead. Make a few
stitches, then stitch a

soldered jump ring to the
back of the stack.
13
Go across the back
of the piece and sew
through to the front between
the purple and black braids
on one side of the join from
step 5. String a 150 seed
bead, an 80, and a 150, and
sew down between the
braids on the other side of
the join. Tie a few knots on
the back to secure, and trim
the excess thread.
14
Use a toothpick to
apply glue to the
back, spreading the glue to
the edges. Place the piece
on the back of a piece of
backing. Use your fingers
to even out the shape
(Finishing touches, p. 63).
If you find a gap, dab a
toothpick with glue
and slide it between the
piece and the backing.
15
Allow to dry
completely. Trim
the backing close to the
piece.
16
Open the loop of an
earring wire (Basics)
and attach the dangle.
Close the loop.

Soutache summarized
shaping
To create curves in a braid or
stack, adjust the length of the
stitches through the center
groove, sewing short stitches
on the inside of the curve and
longer stitches on the outside.
Don’t pull too hard or the braid
will buckle.
stacking
To ensure the braids curve in a pleasing way, place one on top of the other so
the grain in each braid points in the same direction.
joining
Typically, you’ll join a braid or a stack of braids where it comes together around
a bead or cabochon. Sew through the stack on one side of the join, then sew
back and forth through both stacks several times to reinforce.
ending a stack
Always pull the stack to the back of your piece, making a couple of tiny tacking
stitches from the back to the front of the piece. On the back, wrap the thread
around the end of the braid(s) several times and make a few more tiny stitches.
Trim the ends of the stack close to the wraps.
fnishing touches
Cover the thread and fraying ends of the braid by gluing your piece to an
Ultrasuede backing. Apply a thin coat of glue, making sure the glue does not
ooze out between the beads or the edge of the soutache. If your piece is a bit
loose, you can control the shape and smooth it out. Once the glue has dried,
trim the backing close to the soutache, but not so close that you can see the
soutache from the back. A sharp pair of embroidery scissors works best for
getting in the curves and crevices.
Jane Danley Cruz
Jane’s passion for soutache bead
embroidery developed after working on
a project with Amee K. Sweet-McNamara
for Bead&Button. “I love using soutache
in my designs because the braids are so
lightweight,” she says. “Big earrings don’t
drag me down!” Contact Jane at jcruz@beadandbutton.com.

BEJEWELED COLLAR
Dress up a simple collar with crystals
by Jane Danley Cruz
The Peter Pan collar is all grown up and styled for sophistication. These embellished
accessories are chic and easy — no sewing involved! Just make sure to use 100% wool,
boiled wool, Ultrasuede, or another non-fraying fabric, and watch your designs take flight.
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN
applying Hot Fix crystals

1
DPMMBS r Draw and cut out a collar
template. Place the template on
the back of a piece of felt and trace
around it with a permanent marker.
2
Remove the template and cut
out the collar. Cut out the second
half of the collar.
3
Using a leather punch or scissors,
punch a hole near the narrow
end of each half.
4
Allow the Hot Fix crystal tool
to heat up for several minutes.
Arrange flat-back crystals as desired.
To affix the crystals: Press the tool
on top of the crystal and hold for 15
to 18 seconds with larger crystals or
6 to 7 seconds with smaller crystals.
5
Cut two 18-in. (46 cm) pieces
of ribbon. Thread each ribbon
through the hole of a collar half and
fold it back. Glue the end of the
ribbon, making sure to work on the
back side of the collar. Overlap the
front of the collar halves and glue
them together. ✳

I held the tool’s heating element on
the crystals too long and singed the
felt. Always do a test run on a scrap
first to determine how much time
you’ll need to affix each crystal.

I wanted to create a multicolored piece to show off the
beautiful colors of these pearls. This bracelet is easy
enough to make, but I recommend you assemble it in
stages to give your hands and eyes a break. Want a
pearl necklace instead? Just attach a piece of chain
to each end of the cluster.

About me
I grew up on the island of Java in the Indonesian
archipelago and frst came to the U.S. as a
bright-eyed engineering student. Currently I live
in Rhode Island with my husband in our happy
home, where I introduced him to a rice cooker
and he introduced me to a toaster.
My jewelry-making start
I started with needing an artistic outlet and took
a one-hour jewelry class at a local bead store.
That was my point of no return — I got hooked.
I think I have found my dream job.
My advice for beginners
When you face an artistic block, just start
making anything or start sketching. There’s
something about moving your hands that
also gets your creativity fowing.
My inspiration
I used to scuba dive in Indonesia quite a bit
and enjoy watching the colorful tropical fsh.
So for colors, I get inspiration from those
fsh and from fruits and vegetables in my
kitchen. As for shapes, I get inspiration from
nature and materials I use such as stones
and wire. Usually the shape I start with
evolves into something different.
What does “serasi” mean?
My Etsy shop is Serasi Jewelry. “Serasi”
is an Indonesian expression for harmonious
coexistence of personalities and styles.
Indonesia’s rich, laid back, and diverse
culture embraces this philosophy in every
way, ensuring that life transpires in balance.

Wire wonders
Bend, loop, and weave wire for wearable works of art
Thoughtfully designed and expertly crafted, Rosa
Czarnomski’s jewelry has completely charmed us.
These gold and silver leaf necklaces perfectly capture
her signature aesthetic; her jewelry makes a striking
statement without being loud or overwrought. Each
ethereal piece is precise yet organic, and the effect
lends an air of grace and poise to the wearer.

Secrets of wire success
www.BeadStyleMag.com 73
My #1 tip for wirework
It’s easier to use shorter pieces
when weaving with thin wire.
Working in segments prevents
the wire from tangling, coiling,
or kinking. Just start with a new
piece of wire when your last
piece ends, making sure to tidy
up each wire end.

The allure of asymmetry
Someone once told me that
a good design should have an
element of surprise, whether it’s
in color, shape, or composition.
Asymmetry is a great way to add
this element. Once you have all
your components, start with a
symmetrical arrangement, then
tweak it — shift components,
flip it, look at it from a different
angle, play with it, and resist the
temptation to balance it unless
you have to.

Picking a palette
I like combining shiny and matte
textures in my designs. With
beads, it translates to combining
transparent or translucent (such
as citrine or amethyst) with
opaque (such as turquoise or
pearl). As for colors, the choice
comes naturally — whatever feels
right. Using a color wheel as your
guide can help you figure out
which colors mix harmoniously.

Focal-point focus
For these necklaces, the focal
component came first, then the
side links. I wanted to add volume
to the focal component; weaving
wire through it was the easiest
way. Only after the necklace was
finished did I notice how flat the
entire thing was. That was when
I decided to curve the focal piece
to add even more volume. I left
the side leaves bare because,
really, it was dinner time. ✳

These square beads are eye-catching on their own, but wear them strung in a row

Make it longer
To add length, string an extra
20 mm square bead on each side
before stringing the smallest
squares. Or, for just a bit of extra
length, string another rondelle or
two on each end before attaching
the clasp.
3
On each end, string: rondelle,
crimp bead, rondelle, Wire
Guardian, half of a toggle clasp. Go
back through the beads just strung
and tighten the wire. Crimp the crimp
bead (Basics) and trim the excess
wire. If desired, close a crimp cover
over each crimp.

beads just strung and tighten the wire.
Crimp the crimp bead (Basics) and
trim the excess wire. Repeat on the
other end, substituting a jump ring
for the clasp. If desired, close a crimp
cover over each crimp.

Wiggle room
When making a single strand necklace,
my go-to spacer is a 4 mm round or
bicone crystal, but 4 mms didn’t work
this time. The large square beads need
more wiggle room so they don’t touch
the 20 mms; 8 mm rondelle crystals do
the trick!

Cutting flexible beading wire
1 Decide how long you want your necklace
to be. Add 6 in. (15 cm) and cut a piece of
beading wire to that length.
Flattened crimp
2 Hold the crimp bead with the tip of your
chainnose pliers. Squeeze the pliers frmly
to fatten the crimp bead. Tug the clasp to
make sure the crimp has a solid grip on the
wire. If the wire slides, remove the crimp
bead and repeat with a new crimp bead.
3 The fattened crimp.
Folded crimp
4 Position the crimp bead in the notch
closest to the crimping pliers’ handle.
5 Separate the wires and frmly squeeze
the crimp bead.
6 Move the crimp bead into the notch at
the pliers’ tip. Squeeze the pliers, folding
the bead in half at the indentation.
7 The folded crimp.
Opening a jump ring or loop
8 Hold the jump ring or loop with chainnose
and roundnose pliers or two pairs of
chainnose pliers.
9 To open the jump ring or loop, bring one
pair of pliers toward you.
10 The open jump ring. Reverse the steps
to close.
Attaching a clasp
11 For a two-piece clasp, on each end,
string: spacer, crimp bead, spacer,
Wire Guardian (optional), half of the clasp.
Check the ft, and add or remove beads
if necessary. Go back through the beads
just strung and tighten the wire. Crimp
the crimp bead and trim the excess wire.
12 Or, follow step 11 to attach a lobster
claw clasp on one end and a soldered
jump ring or chain extender on the other.
Square knot
13 Cross the left end over and under the
right end.
14 Cross the right end over and under the
left end. Pull both ends to tighten the knot.

21 Make sure there is at least 1¼ in.
(3.2 cm) of wire above the bead. With
the tip of your chainnose pliers, grasp the
wire directly above the bead. Bend the
wire (above the pliers) into a right angle.
22 Position the jaws of your roundnose
pliers vertically in the bend.
23 Bring the wire over the pliers’ top jaw.
24 Reposition the pliers’ lower jaw snugly

90 BEAD STYLE | JANUARY 2014
Bead inspired
“I came across an Eleanor Roosevelt quote: ‘Friends you and me. You
brought another friend, and then there were three. We started our
group, our circle of friends, and like that circle, there is no beginning
or end.’ I designed a collection around this idea. This necklace with
different shapes and sizes of crocheted circles represents friendship
diversity.” – Rosa Czarnomski (see more on page 72)
Celebrating friends
