How to Make Quick Fashion Jewelry
Posted on August 13 2015
This is the first of a three part fashion post. We're going to show you quick ideas for adding to your fall wardrobe. Starting off with an easy wood chain and bead necklace, this piece will look good with your jeans and boots or a blazer.
This chain is the perfect size for this stunning Caliente Coral strand of Jesse James Beads. We've got this special jewelry making chain in a few styles and lengths. I opted for this soft brown so I could ease into Fall from Summer colors.One of the questions I get a lot is how to connect beading wire to obscure materials like this chain. The solution is simple: seed bead loop with a crimp. It's a beautiful (and functional!) connection.All you need is 19 strand Beadalon wire and some #2 Crimp tubes to make it happen!That's fine and all, but what about a clasp you ask! Large jump rings is the answer. For this particular clasp, I added a second tiny jump ring to the toggle so it fit through the flower loop perfectly.Stay tuned for our next fashion installment! Until next time- Candie
