Beadsmith 1-Step Looper

31 May 2014 at 1:46am

Making simple loops, or unwrapped wire loops, isn't very difficult once you get the hang of it.

The part that CAN be difficult is making loops that are all the same size. For many types of jewelry it won't really matter that the loops are exactly the same size but if you are creating a chain of beaded sections, like a rosary or prayer type of chain, it can make a big difference.

Having loops that are of a similar size and shape just makes a finished piece look more professional and pleasing to the eye.

But how do you get loops that are the consistently the same size? Be sure to check out the review of Beadsmith 1-Step Looper to see how quick and easy it can be to create consistent, perfect simple loops.

Mixed Metal Stamped Necklace

29 May 2014 at 8:22am
Mixing metal finishes is a very hot trend. It has been a trend for a while and it looks like it is probably not going anywhere any time soon. It has been a kind of a no-no to wear jewelry with different finishes at the same time for many years now. Most people have grown up with the notion that they have to choose either gold or silver and that all of their jewelry needs to be the same finish. It's often been considered akin to wearing white after Labor Day to mix yellow gold and silver jewelry. But that is all in the past now. In fact, wearing all the same metal color can sometimes look a bit too "matchy matchy". And the mixed metals trends doesn't stop with jewelry either. Home decor and weddings,but especially jewelry, enjoy the collaboration of gold, silver, brass and copper to create stunning and unique pieces. Another hot trend in jewelry making is stamped metal. Personalizing jewelry, and lots of other things for that matter, has always been popular. Being able to express yourself with stamped words and images on metal is a great way to personalize your jewelry. So how about a stamped metal project to create your own mixed metal look?

Using Tassels in Jewelry Making

28 May 2014 at 9:27am
I like adding lots of different "non-traditional" items to my jewelry making projects. I especially love fabric and fibers. It is so easy to add more color and texture to a piece by simply adding a bit of fiber.

Tassels are made of fabric, raffia, ribbons, yarn or thread - basically any flexible, thin material.

Sizes can vary but the tassels used in jewelry making are generally fairly small. Though that can vary to fit your personal taste.

Tassels have become hugely popular due to the current bohemian trends in jewelry, fashion and home decor. Tassels add texture, color and visual interest to the items they are attached to.

Be sure to check out the article on Tassels in Jewelry Making to get the scoop on tassels, how they are made, what they are made with and even some inspiration to create your own tasseled jewelry creations!

How to Make Sari Ribbon and Pearl Earrings

28 May 2014 at 6:16am
Have you ever heard of silk sari ribbon? It is made by cutting a well worn sari into strips. Sometimes the saris are over dyed - meaning that they are dyed even though they already have color - and then the strips are stitched one after the other to create a very long hank of silk sari ribbon - like yarn. I love that the saris were worn by other women. Probably women a lot like you and I who just happen to live in another place. Women doing the jobs of wife and mother, teacher and student. All of the things women do. I also love the different patterns, materials and metallic threads that run through some of the silk sari ribbon. I love that it is often fine, delicate or well worn. I happen to have quite a stash of silk sari ribbon sitting in my studio. I love it so much that I just kind of horde it rather than use it up. But recently I decided to use some of my stash to create some earrings. Even though these recycled sari and pearl earrings don't use up much of my stash it's a start. See Sari Ribbon and Pearl Earrings for a full tutorial. Do you have sari ribbon in your stash too?

Using Pom Poms in Jewelry Making

23 May 2014 at 11:26am
Do you like adding fibers and fabric to your jewelry projects?

Personally, I like the variation of colors and texture I can add to my jewelry projects by simply adding a little fiber of some sort. It is an economical way to add a little something more to a pieces without spending a lot of money.

Pom poms are very popular at the moment. Whether it is home decor, wearables or even in jewelry making pom poms of all shapes and sizes, as well as different materials add a touch of whimsy and a bohemian vibe to whatever you are making.

Pom poms are very easy to make and are basically made by wrapping yarn about an object many times, tying it off and then cutting the loops. One of my favorite tools for making pom poms is the PattieWack Pom Pom Tool and I explain more about it and share this pretty Bohemian Bracelet in this article: On Trend: Pom Pom's for Jewelry Making.

Be sure to check it out and learn more about pom poms and how they are used in jewelry making. And if you are in need of some inspiration for jewelry making projects that include a pom pom I've included several links for you to follow as well.

Do you like to include fiber in your jewelry projects?
