Diamante Rhinestone Mesh Netting Treasure Trap – Wire Working Techniques

Well, it’s Bring It On!! Month where I asked John Bead marketing-savant, Carmi Cimicata, to challenge me to work my magic with a few of their outlier SKU’s. This week, I chose to work with this Diamante Rhinestone Mesh Netting and the first thing I thought of was to—yep, you got it!—create a capture pendant over a simple 3D wire frame. Serve it up empty or load-in a memento you’d like to keep close!

Love and Above Dove – Wire Working Techniques

Create your own Schiaparelli-esque symbol-of-peace brooch/pendant with my bead-netted interpretation of the most talked about accessory worn by any performer at a Presidential Inauguration! [You know I’m talkin’ Lady Gaga, right?] I designed a Now That’s a Hammer! repoussé-style rendition originally, but couldn’t resist creating this beaded style when I spotted John Bead’s Opaque Iris Rondelles in gold and silver! Their faceting is perfect for this hammered and textured look for the non-metalsmith jewelry maker! Make one or more and spread love and peace throughout the land!

So Many Chandel Earrings Tutorial – Wire Working Techniques

You may as well call me OptionsRUs, ‘cause I’ve done it again! This chandelier earring pattern is a refresh of a Now That’s a Jig! pattern template with three elements and three options to wrangle those three. So, you may think, “Yay!” 27 different styles!” But (sorry!) you’d be wrong—in a good way!

Think of using these lovelies upside-down or sideways too; and that doesn’t even count your wire color and/or embellishment choices. For this go-round (and so we don’t blow your mind too, too much), we’ll limit the metal to Aluminum, the gauge to 18; and the colors to Green Apple and Fuchsia. And, since it’s Pearl Month here at Brenda Schweder Jewelry, we’ll accent with these lovely John Bead Czech Glass Pearls in 8mm. How ‘bout that for a Pearl Grand Finale!?
