I had ordered some white beads (2mm) and a 25mm medallion online. When they arrived, I loved how the silver and white looked together.
The necklace is made using wire and crimp bead, each row is strung with one bead, 2 seed beads. I had to add one half of the beads, then add the medallion, then add the other half of the beads to each strand as the bail was not large enough to go over the 2mm beads.
I made a matching bracelet using memory wire and a couple of charms wire wrapped to the wire and earrings made using the same beads, spacers and wire wrapped to the hook.
Easy and elegant!

I saw these cute bracelets on google while looking around for some new designs. They expand when you put them on, and contract back when on your wrist so they are perfect to make when you do not know what size wrist the recipient has.
I am making these bracelets to sell at a fundraiser
Above in purple is using 2mm Czech glass beads and 1.5 times memory wire.
Make a single loop on one end of the wire, then string on your beads, push the end of the wire through the loop and then make a loop through that end ensuring that the wire is sliding through the loops.
The memory wire will hold its shape while you are putting the bracelet on and off and add a few charms for fun!
They are quick and easy to make and are trendy
I used 'beggar' beads on the above bracelet. They are 4mm sized and varying colours.
A single slider bracelet with 10mm aventurine beads and smaller faceted beads in similar colour. Make sure that there is enough space between the two loops or two ends of the wire in order that it can contract back into a circle.
