Beginner Pendant

This enchanting pendant is a beginner's project that I made in an afternoon. Measuring is an important step in planning your pojects. This is basically a choker with pendant. The finished length is 16". When I measured the memory wire for stringing I allowed an additional 2" to accommodate the closures. The pendant and stringing beads are glass in a pale blue hue to match the deep blue multi-hued focal pendant,clear glass spacer beads were used to fill. Before actually stringing I used my beading board to lay the beads out in different patterns until I achieved the look I wanted.

The materials were inexpensive and the project was easy. Shop for similar items here.

Findings and Such

Findings are the small, essential components used to attach, link, hold and close your designs and give them that polished, professional appearance. Among these invaluable little pieces are bead caps, bead tips, clasps, earring wires, posts and clips, end caps, space bars and end caps, closures, head and eye pens and spacers. Learn to use these in making your beaded jewelry. Download the ebook today. Beading for Beginners

Beading Tools and materials

For beading you will need a few tools: First of all you will need several types of pliers, the chain-nose pliers for maneuvering through the links of a chain, the needle nose pliers are for shaping wire, round nose pliers for making loops for attaching beads to the piece being worked, flat nose pliers hold wire securely when shaping wire while crimping pliers are used to flatten crimping beads. These beads are made of soft metal and their sole purpose is to hold your beads in place on the stringing material, they are used prior to attaching the closures. Finally you will need a pair of wire cutters so that your cut will not leave irritating bits of wire called burrs to scratch skin or catch on clothing.

You will need a bead board. This board has groves with incremental numbers where you can lay out your designs before actually stringing them. Most boards have an area where you can sort your beads and the board will prevent your beads from rolling away unto the floor.

You may find some other tools helpful, but they are not necessary. A chasing hammer and jewelers lock for shaping metal, clips for keeping the design together once you have started to build your design to prevent the parts from falling off the stringing material. Simpe pieces are generally strung in a short period of time and there is no need for clips but as your designs become more complicated you will probably find the use of clips necessary.

Types of Beads

Beads can be found in a myriad of shapes and materials. Glass beads varieties are numerous since whatever can be done to form glass can be used to make beads. I love the multifacted beauty of leaded glass crystal. Their light reflecting iridesence and generally uniform shape lend themselves to unclutterd, classy designs.

The multifacated shimmer of leaded crystal beads is beautiful to behold. The surprising varieties of artisan beads is phenominal, limited only by the artists' imagination, skills and materials used.

There are wood beads, bone beads, pearls, metal, semiprecious stones, and, well you get the idea.

Beads can be found in numerous shapes and sizes from the 1 1/2" standard seed beads to beads to as large as 2". Their shapes are limitless from round to square to oblong and more. A visit to the bead shop will totally engage your creative spirit.
