    Ever since I made my first spiral rope, I've loved to make beaded ropes out of seed beads and my favorite off-loom bead-weaving stitches, and with the new TierraCast Maker's Collection of cord and rope ends with coordinating clasps, I was inspired to start stitching some new beaded ropes.

  • Get Creative With These Beaded Brooch Projects

    Beaded brooches are probably the very last type of beaded jewelry that I think of designing when I sit down to make a new piece, right there under "bolo ties" and "cuff links". But when I came across this blog from Jean Campbell with 5 ways to wear a beaded brooch , I started thinking...

  • Would You Believe That's Just a Wire? Simply Elegant Wire Jewelry

    If there's anyone who's inspiring me to work with more wire lately, it's my good friend and fellow jewelry artist Heather Sorrell. I met Heather a few years ago when she and I were both doing the farmer's market and craft show circuit up here in the Adirondacks, and we found ourselves...

  • Rose Gold Jewelry: A Summer 2014 Trend

    Many women seek out unique jewelry that not everyone is wearing. Rose gold is one way to stand out. Although rose gold findings are more common than they used to be, they're still much harder to find than sterling silver, brass, or copper findings. What is Rose Gold?

  • Transform Your Wire Into Jewelry with These Great Projects

    You know, making wire jewelry isn't nearly as difficult as I thought it was. And much to my husband's dismay, I'm adding all kinds of new jewelry-making supplies to my stash -- wire, hammers, bench blocks, even a micro torch out in the garage with my glass torch! What I'm really enjoying...

  • Easy Pastel Hoop Earrings with Portuguese Cork Cord

    I love working with new materials. Whenever I need to buy some beading essentials such as jump rings or ear wires, I try to also buy one new-to-me item just for fun. That's how this pretty cord ended up in my beading studio a few weeks ago. Portuguese cork cord is cork wrapped around a cotton cord...

  • 12 Easy Earring Making Ideas You Can Do Right Now!

    The other day as I was rummaging through my pile o' jewelry looking for a pair of earrings, my first thought was, "I don't have enough earrings." It's probably true -- when I sit down to make a piece of jewelry, earrings are usually not the first thing I think of designing. Sure...

  • Why I Love Using Seed Beads for Jewelry Making

    A rainbow of seed beads at the Whimbeads bead show booth! I'll never forget the first time I sat down to make jewelry with seed beads. I'd tried all kinds of other jewelry-making techniques: mixed media, wire wrapping, polymer clay...but none of them really captured my imagination, and I never...

    So, it had been a while since I allowed myself to splurge on a really nice clasp. And while I was browsing for beads online one day, I just happened to come across this gorgeous sterling silver box clasp from A Grain of Sand made with a 1939 World's Fair cabochon.

  • Tools for Making Bracelets That Fit

    If you sell bracelets or give them as gifts, you probably know that sizing bracelets is more difficult than sizing earrings or necklaces. If a bracelet is too small, the clasp won't close; too large, it will fall off. You can make stretchy bracelets, memory wire bracelets, or chain bracelets that...
