A Free eBook Fit For a Queen, All About Pearls!

Nov 16, 2012

Who among us can resist the lure of beautiful handmade pearl jewelry? The legacy of pearls throughout history is as fascinating as it is mysterious: pearls were once a luxury enjoyed only by kings and queens, retrieved from the depths of the oceans and seas.

These days, pearls can be found in all kinds of handmade beaded jewelry, from classic wedding designs to holiday party jewelry. Pearls can mix effortlessly with all types of beads, from natural sea shells and gemstones to your favorite sparkling crystal beads and glass beads. If you want to add a delicate softness and glow to your favorite beaded jewelry design, add a handful of pearls.

We've put together this fun and free collection of pearl jewelry designs so you can experience the power of pearls! Inside All About Pearls: 6 Free Handmade Pearl Jewelry Designs, you'll find free beading projects that include both bead stitching and bead stringing. A little something for everyone, with these six fabulous beading projects:

  • Begin by practicing your pearl knotting skills when you make Amber Traeden's Birdsong Necklace. Bright, earthy colors of freshwater pearls and gemstones mix effortlessly with metal chain and findings.
