Icy Artistry Jewelry Set Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

With an Artbeads Designer Blend in the perfect color palette, you can create a fabulous jewelry set just like this one. Cynthia used the Icicle Designer Blend to add frosty colors to her necklace and bracelet. With a mix of bead caps, she also added texture and detail to her pieces. Find your favorite Designer Blend to make this look all your own.

Bracelet


Step one:
Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately 11 inches. Slide a sterling silver 2x2mm crimp tube onto the end, followed by half of the 8mm silver-plated round magnetic clasp. Bring your wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place. Hide the crimp with a sterling silver 3mm crimp cover. Learn how to use crimp covers with this tutorial.

Step two:
Add the following pattern to the strand:
  • Two pearls from the Swarovski 8mm Crystal Mix Icicle Designer Blend
  • One TierraCast antique silver 5mm talavera star bead cap
  • One bicone from the Designer Blend
  • One bead cap
  • One pearl
Repeat this pattern four times or until your bracelet is the desired length. Then, add one more pearl to the strand.

Step three:
Add a crimp cover to the wire, followed by the other half of the clasp. Bring the wire back through the crimp and crimp in place. Hide the crimp with a crimp cover.

Necklace


Step one:
For the following bead patterns, string the patterns onto a 2-inch 20 gauge sterling silver head pin and make a wrapped loop at the top of the beads:
  • A talavera bead cap, a bicone from the Designer Blend, and a talavera bead cap
  • A pearl from the Designer Blend and a talavera bead cap
  • A TierraCast antique silver-plated pewter 5mm Tiffany bead cap, a pearl, and a sterling 8mm palm frond bead cap
  • A sterling silver 6mm flower petal outline bead cap and a bicone
  • A Tiffany bead cap, a pearl, and a talavera bead cap
  • A pearl and a palm frond bead cap (Repeat for 2 dangles)
  • A talavera bead cap, a bicone, and a Tiffany bead cap
  • A Tiffany bead cap, a bicone, and a Tiffany bead cap
  • A talavera bead cap, a pearl, and a talavera bead cap
  • A flower petal outline bead cap, a bicone, and a talavera bead cap (Repeat for 2 dangles)
  • A pearl and a Tiffany bead cap
  • A Tiffany bead cap, a pearl, and a palm frond bead cap


Step two:
Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately eight inches long. Slide a crimp tube onto one end, followed by the end of a 6 1/4-inch length of 5x4.5mm silver-plated flat cable chain. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place. Hide the crimp with a crimp cover.

Step three:
Add three seed beads from the Artbeads Gray Flannel Designer Blend to the strand, followed by one of your dangles. Repeat this pattern six times. Add three seed beads and then the large silver-plated brass tassel pendant. Repeat the pattern of adding three seed beads and a dangle on the other side of the tassel.

Step four:
Slide a crimp tube onto the strand, followed by the end of a 6 1/4-inch length of chain. Bring the wire back through the tube and crimp in place. Hide the crimp tube with a crimp cover.

Step five:
Attach the JBB sterling silver 16mm spiral toggle clasp to the ends of the necklace using a sterling silver 4.60mm open jump ring for each. Learn how to open and close jump rings properly with this video.
