Sea Breeze Jewelry Set

By:

This entire set from Katie Hacker uses just one package of mixed Czech glass beads. Separate the beads into small, medium and large for this project. Since the necklace is symmetrical, separate the beads into sets of two to be sure you have enough matching beads.

  • 2 blue E beads
  • 4 peridot 4mm bicone Swarovksi crystal beads
  • 2 small light blue glass beads
  • 2 small dark blue glass beads
  • 2 large green glass beads
  • 10 gold #1 Beadalon crimp beads
  • 2 gold #2 Beadalon crimp beads
  • 2 gold ear wires

For all:

  • Crimping tool
  • Wire Cutters

Steps:

Necklace:

  1. To make the pendant, cut three 7” lengths of beading wire.
     
  2. Hold the wires together as one and fold them in half.
     
  3. Pass the ends through a #2 crimp bead and slide it about ¼” from the fold. Use a crimping tool to crimp it.
     
  4. String small Czech glass and Swarovski crystal beads onto the wire ends, staggering them as shown. Use #1 crimp beads to hold them in place.
     
  5. Cut three 18” lengths of beading wire.
     
  6. String the pendant onto the center of the wire.
     
  7. Hold the wires together and string a small bead on each side of the pedant. For the rest of the necklace, work on each side of the necklace in sequence from the center towards the ends so the necklace is symmetrical.
     
  8. Separate the wires and string a #1 crimp bead (don’t crimp it), an E bead and a #1 crimp bead onto one wire. String a glass bead onto each of the other wires.
     
  9. Hold the wires together as one and pass one end through a #2 crimp bead, a large bead and a #2 crimp bead. Crimp the crimp beads.
     
  10. Repeat Steps 7-8 four more times or until the beads are about 1 ½” from the end of the wire.
     
  11. Hold the wires together and pass them through a #2 crimp bead, E bead, #2 crimp bead and half of the clasp.
     
  12. Pass the wires back through the clasp and the first crimp bead. Crimp both crimp beads.

Bracelet:

  1. Cut three 8” lengths of beading wire.
     
  2. Hold the wire ends together and pass them through a #2 crimp bead and half of the clasp. Pass them back through the crimp bead and crimp it.
     
  3. Pass the wires through an E bead and another #2 crimp bead. Crimp it.
     
  4. For the main part of the bracelet, string #1 crimp beads and medium-large glass beads. Stagger them on the different wires as shown, crimping to hold the glass beads in place. The last beaded section should be about 1 ½” from the end.
     
  5. Hold the wires together and pass them through a #2 crimp bead, E bead, #2 crimp bead and half of the clasp.
     
  6. Pass the wires back through the clasp and the first crimp bead. Crimp both crip beads.

Earrings:

  1. Cut three 3” lengths of beading wire.
     
  2. Hold the wires together and fold them in half. Slide a large green bead and a #2 crimp bead over the wires about 1/16” from the fold to form a small loop. Crimp it.
     
  3. Add assorted beads to the wires at staggered levels as shown, attaching #1 crimps below the beads to hold them in place. Cut the wires at uneven levels as well.
     
  4. Attach the upper wire loop to the ear wire.
     
  5. Repeat Steps 1-4 to make a matching earring.

Tips: A. The necklace is 17” and the bracelet fits a 7” wrist. To adjust the pattern for a different size, use a bead board to arrange the beads and measure before stringing.

B. E bead is a common name for size 6/0 seed beads.
