I could spend all day either gardening or beading. This jewelry set combines my two passions!
This sweet earring and bracelet set features Raven's Journey hibiscus flower beads in a lovely purple color that is perfectly accented by the Swarovski Crystal Lilac Shadow bicones. Cynthia also added in dark green rondelle beads for some contrast. Cynthia made this set during a Facebook Live Jewelry Design Challenge. You can watch her make these pieces and others here.
Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately ten inches long. Slide a 14K/20 gold-filled 2x2mm crimp tube onto the end of the wire, followed by a gold-filled 14K 4.30mm open jump ring attached to half of the TierraCast antique gold classic clasp set. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place.
Repeat this pattern nine times, leaving off the last bicone.
Add a bicone to a 2-inch gold-plated brass 21 gauge eye pin, followed by a rondelle, a flower bead, and a rondelle bead. Make a wrapped loop at the top of the beads.
Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up the design and make it yours by substituting similar products or altering the entire color scheme—it’s up to you!
