Collar chains can be worn on shirt collars as a fun accessory for any ensemble. They also make cute accessories on jean jackets and can be used as sweater chains. This collar chain features a brick stitch fox on each end – one with a flower crown and one with a top hat. These foxes look especially adorable at the very tip of a collar. Becky used TOHO Aiko seed beads for consistent color and precise shape while stitching.
Czech glass pear-shaped drops make excellent dangles in jewelry designs. The elongated shape is elegant and stands out in any look. We used messy wrapped loops to attach them to Nunn Design earrings and silk ribbon. You could try them in chain styles, on leather cord, and even with seed beads. This look is so easy to customize to suit your style.

Rhinestone spacers look great between larger beads, but you can also stack them to create unique effects in your jewelry. In this simple necklace, a stack of rhinestone spacers in various sizes accentuate the beautiful Swarovski pearls and add a little bling. Customize the colors you use to make this look your own. The pendant is easily added to a finished necklace of your choice.
Nunn Design components include sleek shapes that work wonderfully together. Becky used a simple rectangle pendant inside a wire frame for a minimalist style statement that will work with any ensemble. We love how she used mixed silver and gold finishes in this design, but you could certainly stick to all silver components to match the pendant.

Count down the days to Christmas with this adorable bracelet! Becky created peyote stitch scenes for each of the Twelve Days of Christmas using TOHO Aiko precision cylinder seed beads and stitched them around Czech glass carrier beads. The peyote stitch bands can move around each Carrier bead, so you can display the numbers and turn them to display each scene as it gets closer to Christmas.
Cymbal components combine effortlessly with Matubo GemDuo beads to provide a perfect finishing touch for these earrings. The Cymbal bead ending features a loop at the top, so you can easily add other components to your bead weaving designs. Becky used chain and earwires to create dangling earrings. You could easily showcase the focal of this design as a necklace pendant, too.
