Orange and White Necklace Featuring Czech Glass Bell Flowers and Bead Caps
designed byCynthia Kimura
Approximate Size16 Inches
I played around with layering bead caps for this fun look!
Cynthia layered two bead caps in gold and brass colors with Czech glass bell flower beads that work like bead caps for a look that brings texture and style. The layered bead caps showcase the bold Swarovski pearls beautifully. You can see more inspiration for using bead caps in your designs in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately 20 inches long. Slide a TierraCast 2x2mm brass oxide brass crimp tube onto the end of the jewelry wire, followed by a Vintaj natural brass 6mm rib cable 18 gauge jump ring attached to half of the TierraCast brass oxide pewter heirloom clasp set. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place. Hide the crimp with a 3mm antique brass crimp cover.
Add ten Swarovski 6mm round pearls in Rose Peach to the wire. Then, add the following pattern:
One TierraCast antique gold lily bead cap
One Anna Bronze antique brass 13mm floral bead cap
One Czech glass 12x6mm orange white opaque spiny oyster matte mix with dark bronze wash wide bell flower bead
One Swarovski 12mm round Crystal Pearlescent White pearl
One bell flower bead
One Anna Bronze bead cap
One TierraCast bead cap
One Swarovski 6mm round pearl in Rose Gold
Repeat this pattern eight times, leaving off the last Rose Gold pearl. Then, add ten Rose Peach pearls.
Slide a crimp tube onto the end of the wire, followed by a jump ring attached to the other half of the clasp. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place. Hide the crimp with a crimp cover.

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!
