We all know that glass beads are one of the most popular jewelry beads, and faceted glass beads are one shape of the most popular beads. Faceted Glass Beads are available in many different colors and sizes as the same as other glass beads. And here, I would like to share two jewelry making ideas with this kind jewelry beads.
The first jewelry making idea is about a pair of earrings with faceted glass beads and Tibetan style pendants. We need 12pcs red faceted glass beads (about 6mm in diameter), 2pcs alloy Tibetan style chandelier components (about 31mm long, 21mm wide), eyepins, headpins and earring hooks. First, string a red glass bead on a headpin, and use your jewelry plier to make a loop at the top of bead. Beading 9pcs more beads like this. Second, attach 5pcs beaded faceted glass beads on rings of alloy chandelier component one by one. Third, string a glass bead on an eyepin, and use jewelry plier to make a loop at the other end. Attach the alloy chandelier component on a loop of eyepin. Fourth, use your jewelry plier to attach the other loop of eyepin on the ring of earring hook. Fifth, repeat the four steps to create the other piece of earring for a pair. Till now, a pair of beautiful Tibetan style glass beads earrings is finished.
The second jewelry making idea I want to share is a necklace. The materials you need to prepare are handmade lampwork pendant (about 45.5X20mm), 2pcs oval shaped lampwork beads, some faceted glass beads in different colors and sizes (light blue and AB purple, 4~8X4~6mm), jewelry wire, 2 strands f black nylon thread, 2pcs cord ends, lobster claw clasp. First, string purple glass beads on ball headpins (one bead on one pin), and use jewelry plier to make loop at top. Second, cut off a length of jewelry wire, and string all the faceted glass beads, lampwork beads and lampwork pendant on wire like the layout on picture. Third, use crimp beads and crimp plier to attach the two ends of wire on two strands of black nylon cords separately. Fourth, use cord ends to combine nylon cords, and attach lobster clasp and jump ring on two cord ends separately. Now, a beautiful handmade necklace is finished. The color is very suitable for both spring and summer.
