Which Strands To Use For Beaded Jewelry Making

There are lots of great jewellery trends this season that break the boundaries and encourage us all to be bold. The statement jewellery trend really looks great and can give any outfit an instant lift. The key is to not overdo it. If you are wearing a statement ring, don’t wear large earrings and a necklace to match. Choose one large jewellery piece which will act as the feature.

Use a wire frame for support if needed. Try to make beads by rolling a ball on your palms and carefully poking it through the middle with the use of a needle.

The crisp clean white collared button down shirt. This is a wardrobe staple that will never go wrong. It can be dressed up or down with jeans and ballet flats or with a pencil skirt tucked in with a neck scarf and three inch heals for the office. This Spring I would love to see more cap sleeved white button downs with a small feminine collar. This is flirty in a way because cap sleeves show off toned arms and looks great with tan skin.

If you wish to make clay beads, use a piercing tool to bore holes for stringing. If you have a wooden skewer or long sewing needle, it will be much better.

Real stones are definitely more costly, so if you are on a tighter budget, try going with synthetic stones. While they are “faux” gems, they are made to look just like the real thing and in many cases are actually stronger than some of their more fragile counterparts. They are also easier to replace if something happens to the piece.

Statement necklaces have been popular for a few years now and there is no sign of them dissipating in 2010. Long chains look great with a hand picked selection of charms that incorporate both large pendants in gold or silver. Precious stones look stunning as do large pearl pendants. If you are having trouble creating your own statement necklace there are so many great ones on the market that already have a series of pendants and charms.

Photo Bracelets: photo bracelets are quite fashionable and trendy. You can either craft your own bracelet using beads, pearls or stones of your choice or either just accessorize your old metal bracelet with a photo.
