Bead Embellished Buttons

Make your own fabric and seed bead buttons with circular peyote stitch. A Beadwork challenge project.
Celestial Sparkle

I wear this glass and crystal necklace with the large silver toggle clasp in the front. This design was the result of a personal challenge: if you can only afford one tiny strand of beautiful boro beads, what can you do with them? Everyone told me I had to make a bracelet since I had so few of these special beads, but I really wanted a necklace!
Dear Diary

Create a unique focal piece by stringing several keys on a large jump ring.
Dragonfly Pin

This mixed-media pin requires a trip to the scrapbooking section of the craft store. A Beadwork challenge project.
Flower Girl Barrette

Embellish a peyote stitch trip with layers of pastel flowers. A Beadwork challenge project.
Girl Power Trio

Three sets of earrings made with a single set of pink and khaki lampworked beads. I was delighted with how differently each pair turned out.
Gone Fishin' with Miro

A silver wireworked bracelet with an orange and blue color palette. These beads were from a Beadwork challenge kit. I certainly was challenged by the colors!
Jane of the Jungle

A peyote stitch bracelet pattern with shades of green against a black background. A Beadwork challenge project.
Lazy-B-Ranch Bracelet

There's a secret to these ladder-stitched beaded beads. A Beadwork challenge project.
Love Birds Necklace

Use daisy chain to decorate pearls and then string together a necklace with simple wirework techniques. I created the pendant by layering several pieces together with ribbon and stitching it together. A Beadwork challenge project.
Purple Zig Zags

Play with coils and inexpensive craft wire to make these quick, fun earrings. You can use a special coiling tool or you can be like me and just find a knitting needle or crochet hook that's the right size and use that to wrap your wire. Featured in an advertisement in the first issue of Easy Wire.
Rambling Rose

A chain maille and strung necklace with garnets and silver. I love this necklace for the holidays. A Beadwork challenge project.
Sari Sunrise

On a limited budget? Make this 3-strand necklace for under $25! I had such a good time making an "under $25" necklace for Stringing that I challenged myself to do it a second time. This is the result.
She Bop

Bold clip-on statement earrings that are sure to get you noticed! I made this in response to an article in Stringing that mentioned how large earrings were the perfect accessory for a bare neckline.
Sorbet in August

Combine bright lampworked beads, lava rock rounds, and moukite for a casual design that's easy to wear. This pattern was originally published in Stringing and is part of a free eBook.
Spiraling Out of Control

Easy copper chain necklace with a mix of wirework techniques: simple loops, wrapped loops, spirals, and coils. Featured in an advertisement in the first issue of Easy Wire.
Sunshine Day necklace Sunshine Day features several colors from Pantone's Spring 2012 color palette: Tangerine Tango, Solar Power, Starfish, and Driftwood. A photo and description of this necklace originally appeared in Stringing Spring 2012.
