An easy necklace made with beads

I made this necklace to match a purple dress I wore at a friend's wedding.
To make the necklace you won't need a lot of time, and it is really easy to make.
Choose good quality crystal beads, in the colours you prefer, I chose pink and purple beads, in different sizes and shapes, some are round swarosky crystal beads, others are bicones. I mixed three different sizes. I used silver finding to make the necklace kind of rigid. You will also need a clasp to close it.
Have a look at the picture and you will find it is easy to follow the pattern. Play combining different colours, sizes and shapes and you to build your own beaded craft, each piece is different and unique.

Easy to make bead ring with instructions

This is a very easy to make beaded ring, a good start for beginning beaders :)
The materials you will need are: small standard plastic beads (in yellow in the picture), larger beads (the green ones in the picture). You will also need some 60 cm of thread, you can use a thin elastic thread; that will make the ring suit different sizes, but it will result on a weaker ring. Other option is using the kind of thread that is usually employed for fishing, this is easy to use for beading and makes long lasting rings.

To make the ring, follow this simple pattern (the red star indicates the start point).
Start by putting one of the small beads into the thread and taking it to the middle of the thread. It will be easier if you hold each of the two endings of the thread on one hand. After the first small bead, put one large green bead, another small one and another large bead, on each side of the thread. Then cross both endings of the thread into one small bead, as shown in the picture. Repeat these steps until you get the right lenght for your ring, use several knots to finish the ring.

Earrings are probably the easiest and faster pieces of jewerly you can do with beads. once you have some supplies you can start making earrings in all different colours and styles. Here are some examples:

How to make them:
Step 1: Start putting into the wire a 6mm red crystal bead, a topaz crystal, a golden spacer, a 6mm red crystal bead, and again a 6mm topaz crystal. Using flat nose pliers, bend the piece of wire 90°, cut off the excess and bend the wire into a loop, insert your ear wire, and then close the loop tightly.
Step 2: Place in a piece of wire a 4mm red crystal bead, a 4mm topaz crystal, a golden spacer, and again one red crystal and one topaz bead, finish with a golden spacer. Bend the piece of wire 90°, cut the excess and bend the 3/16" piece of wire into a loop, insert your eye pin and close tightly.

Patterns for bead rings

Here is a post for English readers :)
I have already posted the free patterns and instructions for making three different types of rings with beads. This is a summary of the two different types of beaded rings already shown in the blog.
This is the first ring which was made with simple beads and crystal beads, it's a beautiful flower shaped ring and it's medium difficulty.
Making this jewel will take you at least half an hour, you'll need crystal or swarosky beads (around 10) and small standard beads. I've used a thin nylon thread for making it, to do it yourself follow the pattern showed here. In the patterns "inicio" marks the starting point and "fin" is the end of the work. Start passing the thread through the holes of the beads as shown in the diagram, paying special attention to the points where you have to cross both ends of the thread trhough the hole of an Swarosky bead. I've called this jewel "flower ring"

This is a completely different type of ring, made with "balls" or fake pearls and standard beads. This jewel is easier to do than the former one, to do it, follow step by step the pattern shown here, following the diagram as explained above

To make rings or jewerly with beads you'll need:

It could be either silicon thread (more elastic) or nylon thread, similar to the one used for fishing, depending on the works. Remember to make sure that the thread is thin enough to insert the beads on it

Beads: You will need different types of beads. Usually small beads will be combined with bigger crystal beads ot swarosky beads. For each piece I will recommend you the best type of beads, and the quantity.
