The colors in the mix I used for this set are so elegant! These are great pieces for New Year's Eve parties or even weddings.
Jesse James Bead Mixes include all kinds of fun charms, beads, and more to inspire your jewelry creations. Cynthia used items from the Creampuff mix to create this gorgeous necklace and earrings set. She had enough beads leftover to make even more
Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately 10 inches long. Slide a 14K/20 gold-filled 2x2mm crimp tube onto the wire, followed by the last link of a 8-inch length of 11x7.5mm satin Hamilton gold-plated textured and plain link chain. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place. Hide the crimp with a TierraCast gold-plated brass 3mm crimp cover.
Add beads from the Jesse James Beads Design Elements Bead Mix in Creampuff to the strand. Cynthia used 8 beads. She started with a small cube-shaped bead, then added a faceted round, a briolette shape, a gold and white focal bead, a briolette, a creamy coin shape, a cube, and another creamy coin shape.
Open a 14K/20 gold-filled 7mm 20.5 gauge open round jump ring and add some charms from the mix. Cynthia used a metal leaf charm, a cream thread tassel, and a floral white tassel. Close the jump ring. Then, attach this jump ring to the center of your necklace using a TierraCast small gold-plated brass open round jump ring.
Make a mirror image of the bead pattern on the other side of your dangles. Then, add a crimp tube, and the last link of an 8-inch length of chain. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place. Hide the crimp with a crimp cover.
Open the last link of chain on one end of your necklace and add half of the TierraCast gold-plated pewter Renaissance toggle set. Close the link. Repeat on the other end of your necklace.,
Add three beads from the Bead Mix to a gold-filled 2-inch eye pin. Cynthia used a small gold heart bead, a rhinestone ball bead, and another small gold heart. Make a wrapped loop at the top of the beads.
Attach a heart charm from the Bead Mix to the bottom of your dangle using a small jump ring. Attach a 1/20 14K gold-filled earwire with bead and coil to the top of your dangle using another small jump ring.
Repeat these steps to make the other earring. Feel free to use different beads from the mix to make asymmetrical earrings. For her second earring, Cynthia used a a rhinestone ball bead, a briolette, and another rhinestone ball bead.
