Mad About Bead Work

black & purple beaded earrings

I’m mad about bead work right now. It kind of makes me want to go to a craft store, buy a million beads & then start creating. I’ll resist the urge though & leave that to the pros, I may be creative but I’m pretty sure any bead projects I did in art class weren’t identifiable. There is just something about the intricate designs, the way patterns are created & the color pieces that make these pieces statement knock outs.

The above & below earrings are from Etsy by Bead Work by Hawlli.

Metallic beaded earrings

Aren’t these cool?

Jennifer Wells Studio

Another great shop for some great pieces is Jennifer Wells Studio, Brandy from Cashmere & Camo is always raving about Jennifer’s pieces. So I took a lovely screen shot of some of her work (why thank you Mac Book). You should head over to her site, you won’t be disappointed.

beaded cross bracelets

And then I jumped for joy when I found these bracelets! Larger beads with a side ways crystal cross. These are so pretty & would add a touch of girly glam to any outfit. They come from BeadRustic.

Horse feathers

Ooo & then I found this, so of course I had to share. I mean if you are going to do the beaded trend, why not have your horse participate too? This is by Meadowdancer1.

feathers & beaded jewelry

Carrying on with my feathered trend is this fun necklace by Prayerfeather. I love the feather trend but I especially love it when feathers are metal, wood, or leather. It gives a piece a dressier look for when you don’t want to have the “I’m going out on the town with my feathers on look” Ladies do you know what I’m talking about?

turquoise beads

Sometimes just a simple, yet stunning necklace will do. This comes from Bakkal on Etsy. If you have the time for some serious Etsy browsing you can find amazing stuff.

Oh & other things I am loving right now besides beads? Feathers (obviously), sequins, always glitter.

    Nice jewelry, I really like the earrings in the second photo. I once took up the beading hobby. I spent hundreds of dollars on tools and beads then gave up the hobby. haha.
