How to wear my lampwork beads!

A very lovely friend of mine suggested that I write a blog post to give some ideas about how to wear my beads.   So here goes ......

1  Make your own simple jewellery!

My beads have a 2.5mm - 3mm bead hole and will fit very comfortably on a sterling silver curb or snake chain, providing you ensure that the fastenings are not too large.  I find this to be a very versatile way to wear my beads because you can easily change the beads to match what you are wearing each day.

2  Add my beads to your Charm Bracelets.

Every bead I make is a one off limited edition!  Each bead is hand made by me in my studio and no two beads are ever the same.  Inspiration comes from all around me and from refining my designs.

I also make larger holed beads with a 5mm diameter hole that fit very nicely onto some of the european charm bracelets.  You will soon be able to purchase sterling silver bracelets from my shop on Etsy that you can add my beads to and make up your own unique jewellery. 

3  A simple pendant.

My focal beads can very easily be made into very stylish pendants using different coloured ribbons.  All you need to do is thread the focal bead onto the ribbon, tie a knot to secure it, place it around your neck to the required length and tie into a bow.

This also works really well using any of my bead sets.  Changing the colours of the ribbon can dramatically change the look of the finished piece of jewellery.

If you are feeling adventurous you could even add in a few knots between beads or groups of beads .....

There are so many different options!  Without even realising it you will be on your way to designing your own jewellery.

4  Designing your own unique jewellery!

 It really isn't that difficult, honestly! Over the next couple of months I will be writing blog posts to show you (using step by step instructions) how to make your own jewellery.

All of the beads and jewellery featured in this blog can be found in my shop on Etsy ........

I would love to see any of your creations!
