Step 1

Black grosgrain ribbon

Step 2

Place the Trinity Brass filigree into the middle of the flat section and stitch through the holes around the edges to hold it in place. Sew a Swarovski bicone in the centre of the flower, then add one to each petal. Measure a piece of ribbon to suit your chosen size and add at least 2cm extra each side. Stitch on the ribbon and filigree centre piece, you can choose to have this off centre if you wish.

Step 3

Now take 2 art deco window pendants and snip off the loop inside each one with wire cutters. Place the ribbon through the hole and fold back on itself, stitching the end to the back of the bracelet. To finish, take the bar of a toggle clasp and attach to one art deco window pendant using an eyepin and jump ring.

What a great kit!

Step 3

Here’s how…

Prepare 3 chains of different lengths. Take the choker and thread on a crimp tube. Position around 3cm from the end and crimp to secure. Thread on a 12mm acrylic pink pearl, the end of the longest chain, 3 more 12mm pink pearls, a crimp tube, the end of the medium length of chain, 2 20mm purple pearls, a crimp tube, the end of the shortest chain followed by a 25mm pink pearl and a 30mm purple pearl. With the last large bead as the centre, mirror step 1, picking up the loose ends of chain in the same places in the pattern as before to create the shape of the necklace. Don’t forget to crimp the last tube to keep the beads in place. Thread small sections of beading wire through different collections of acrylic beads. Attach these strung beads to the chains at random intervals.

Here’s how…

Open a large jump ring, attach a seed bead and close. Repeat until you have approx. 200 beaded jump rings. To create the main necklace, make 2 approx 8” (approx. 40 beaded jump rings) chain maille chains using basic European 1 in 4 weave with size variation (more details in book ‘Beaded Chain Maille Jewellery’ – BOOK67, available online). For the centre, make 2 x 5” chain maille sections, 2 x 3” sections and 2 x 2” sections.

Add one large jump ring to the bottom of the eyepin, and attach the 2 x 2” chain sections either side, then join up to the main necklace. Repeat this process, adding the larger chain sections as you get closer to the bottom. Using the centre bottom jump ring, add a teardrop pendant to finish.

CYS DESIGN PROJECT:

WIRED SQUARE RING DIFFICULTY RATING: ADVANCED TECHNIQUE: STRINGING, WIREWORK

MAKE IT TODAY! HERE’S HOW… STEP 1: Take a piece of wire and thread through the holes in the Sew-on Stone. Finish with the ends pointing upwards and make a loop either side. Take a second piece of wire and make a loop at one end. Thread on 4 faceted round Swarovski Beads, thread through the loop made with the Sew-on Stone, add 4 more Swarovski Beads and make another loop. Repeat on the other side of the Sew-on Stone.

STEP 2: Make a coiled loop at one end of a piece of wire and thread through the loop at the end of the beaded wire section you made earlier. Thread on 10 Swarovski Beads and thread through the loop at the other side, starting to build a square around the Sew-on Stone. Finish with a coil and repeat on the other side.

STEP 3: Make beaded sections following the bead count on the CREATE YOUR STYLE with SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS guide. Attach using the nylon cord, threading 2 Swarovski Beads between each wire beaded section. Thread back round to the centre and tie the thread off. Repeat the threading section on the other side, bringing the ring together.

Jet AB firepolish beads 6mm

BG406 Step 1

Step 2

Begin with a piece of aluminium wire measuring approx. 50cm. Find the centre of the wire, and hold the middle of an eyepin to this centre point. Using the eyepin as a size guide, bend the wire either side just shorter than the length of the eyepin, creating a squared ‘U’ shape with the wire. This will be one end of your bangle. Discard the eyepin for now and roll your wire around a bottle to create a bangle shape. Now take your eyepin and thread on a mixture of firepolish beads until it is almost full. Make a loop at the end of the eyepin, and thread on to your bangle base. Thread a seamless metal bead on to space out the beaded sections evenly, then add another beaded eyepin. Repeat this until you have beaded a bangle to your desired size.

Leaving approx. 5cm, snip off any excess wire. Make a small loop in the wire and coil the ends in towards the bangle. To make sure you don’t mark the wire, use nylon jaw pliers or your hands to do this.
