Welcome to the Beadphoria Blog! Today’s theme for the Designer Crafts Connection is “April Showers brings May Flowers”. This gives me the perfect opportunity to let you in on two strong trends in jewelry making right now – pastel colors and flower motifs.

Spring is finally starting to make an appearance, so along with that, we are starting to see spring colors in jewelry. Pastels are a perfect way to add a touch of the season to your wardrobe. Here are some stones and crystal colors you can consider using in your designs.

  • Pearls – Freshwater and glass pearls often come in pastel tones, including pinks, blues, and yellows.
  • Swarovski CrystalsPink:Rosewater Opal, Rose Alabaster, Rosaline; Purple:Light Amethyst, Violet Opal, Violet; Blue:Light Sapphire, Air Blue Opal, Light Azore; Green:Mint Alabaster,Chrysolite,Peridot; Yellow:Jonquil; Peach: Silk, Light Peach
  • GemstonesPink: Rhondonite, Rose Quartz, Tourmaline; Purple: Light Amethyst, Fluorite; Blue:Aquamarine, Blue Lace Agate, Larimar, Blue Topaz, Chrysoprase; Green:New Jade,Peridot, Fancy Jasper; Yellow: Citrine, Aragonite

For my design, I used 6mm mint opal Czech glass beads, 8mm pink freshwater pearls, and 10mm faceted round Aquamarine beads. The silver beads give a nice separation to the colors and a little extra shine. I added the pink organza ribbon to bring a some softness to the necklace.

Are you ready to jump on trend bandwagon and start designing with pastels and flowers? Let me know in the comments below!

Welcome, friends, to another addition of the Beadphoria Blog. The “Caribbean Blue” Bracelet pictured below is made with an exciting new product from John Bead Corp. Neo chain and findings are a dynamic way to bring bright hues and shine to your designs.

Caribbean Blue Bracelet by Suzann Sladcik Wilson

Caribbean Blue Bracelet by Suzann Sladcik Wilson

While designing the “Caribbean Blue” bracelet, I was inspired by the recent trend in fashion of color blocking. Color blocking is when you see designs featuring black and white with a strong pop of a single color. The Neo chain and findings really lend themselves to designing this way.

The findings available include jump rings, split rings, lobster claw clasps, and fish hooks for earrings. Purple, pink, lime green, black and white are the dazzling colors the chain and findings are available in.

Neo Chain and Findings come in a wide array of colors.

I admit it. This Valentine’s Day I think I have a new love. It’s name is Jewelry Attitude. This printable jewelry film makes creating your own custom images for jewelry so simple.

By using Jewelry Attitude by Craft Attitude, I was able to create custom pieces that really express that. Applying Jewelry Attitude onto polymer clay was pretty much effortless. You can use it on a wide variety of surfaces including resin, stone, metal, wood, fabric, and well, just about any thing else you would want to transfer an image onto!

Beadphoria for Designer Crafts Connection: Something New – Bezel Effects from ImpressArt

Happy New Year Everyone! I hope this new year brings you lots of new and exciting things. A something new and exciting I would like to share with you this month is Bezel Effects by ImpressArt.

Bezel Effects Kit

Bezel Effects Kit

When my fellow designer, Theresa Cifali, asked me if I wanted to try out the new Bezel Effects kits, I jumped at the chance. I looked forward to trying a technique completely new to the jewelry making world.

Inside of the Bezel Effects Kit

A big plus I noticed when I opened the Bezel Effects kit is that the instructions are printed on the inside flap of the kit. No losing the pesky instruction sheet here! Also, there are samples of what the effects look like when dried.

Bezel Effect Kit Components

The Bezel Effects Kit contained everything I needed to complete 4 projects:

  • 3 Paints – 1 in the moon effect and two in the Prisme effect
  • 3 pipettes to drop the paint into the bezels
  • 1 package of Ice Resin by Susan Lenart Kazmer
  • Measuring cup and wooden stir sticks for the Ice Resin
  • 3 gold bezels
  • 1 pair of silver earrings

Bezel Effects Pendants by Suzann Sladcik Wilson

I tried a little experimenting when I made my pendants. One thing I learned is the paints have a mind of their own. Where you drop you paint may not be where it stays, but that is what makes the effects turn out so cool. For the pendant in the center of the photograph above, I tried to place the paints in three separate stripes. As you can see, the paints ended up shifting. I still like how the end result turned out.

The paints take 24 hours to dry and then 6-12 hours for the resin on top to cure. You also want to make sure that your projects are somewhere that they are safe from being disturbed during the two drying times.

There is a wide variety of colors in each of the Bezel Effects, which makes customizing your pendant easy. The Bezel Effect web site (http://www.impressart.com/bezel-effects/) also has bezels, Ice Resin, and project inspiration available.

That is my “something new” for the New Year. What new thing will you be trying this year? Don’t forget to hop through using the Designer Crafts Connection Blog Hop and see what favorite and new techniques everyone else is doing.

Wishing you all a year filled with joy, good health, prosperity, creativity, success, and lots of friendship!

Tasseled for Ombré Necklace – Beadphoria for Dazzle-it Tassles Blog Hop and Product Review

Today my design is for the Dazzle-it faux suede tassel and cord blog hop. Since tassels are going to be a strong trend in 2014, I was excited to give the products a try. For my “Tasseled for Ombré” necklace, I used three of the tassels in complementary colors and cord that matched.  I decided to leave the cord long so that it could be tied in the back by the wearer. The tied look would then make the ends look like another tassel.

A small sample of the many colors the Dazzle-it tassels come in.

One of the things I was most impressed about the Dazzle-it tassels and cords was the wide array of colors they came in. Another was that the metal caps of the tassels come in either silver or gold finishes, which makes coordinating with your designs a breeze. Finally, I was also impressed by the quality of the faux suede. The cord knotted well and the tassels were soft to the touch.

Beadphoria for Designer Crafts Connection Blog Hop: Wicked Hard Rockin’ Men’s Necklace

By Suzann Sladcik Wilson

Welcome to another It’s coming upon one of my favorite times of year – Halloween! It’s the perfect time to dress up and sometimes show a little bit of your darker side. Today’s men’s jewelry necklace is the perfect way to do just that during Halloween or any time of year.

Wicked Hard Rockin' Men's Jewelry Halloween Neckace

Wicked Hard Rockin’ Men’s Jewelry Halloween Necklace by Suzann Sladcik Wilson

This necklace was originally commissioned by a high school friend of mine, Mike Bertrand. Mike wanted a necklace that would complement a skull ring that he owns. Men’s jewelry is something that I don’t get to do that often, so I gladly took up the challenge.

Mike's Skull Ring

Mike’s Skull Ring

Mike is a big guy who works security for a living, so I knew the piece had to be substantial. For the center piece of the necklace, I used an actual ball bearing that I picked up at American Science and Surplus and attached it using a large jump ring. (side note: American Science and Surplus is a fantastic resource, especially if you are looking for things that are out of the ordinary for Halloween or year round. The item descriptions are a hoot and always good for a laugh.)

To truly match Mike’s ring, I had to customize the skull beads that I found. By using 3mm Swarovski Crystal Flatbacks in light Siam and setting them in the eye sockets of the skulls, it almost seemed the eyes were glowing! The Crystal Katana made it a breeze to pick up and place the Swarovski Flatbacks, while Beacon’s Quick Grip made sure the Swarovski Flatbacks stayed where I wanted them to.

I am happy to say that Mike was very pleased with his necklace and wore it right away.

Recently, I received a message from my friend and fellow designer Carmi Cimicata asking if I would be interested in trying Fernando DaSilva’s new book on Chinese knotting called Dazzle-its Lovely Knots. Since I am always willing to learn something new, I was more than happy to give it a shot.

The book has lots of different knots for you to choose from and a large inspiration section in the back of the book. One of the knots and one of the inspiration projects really stood out for me; The Double Coin knot and a skull bracelet using double connection knots.

Next, I gathered all my materials together. The folks from John Bead were generous in giving us a roll of cord, an instruction book, and a clasp. While I was at the Bead and Button Show, I picked up an extra roll in the Chocolate color. I also used a cork board from my paper quilling set and a some straight pins to be able to create the knot that I had chosen.

I decided to combine the two techniques to create my bracelet.

When I was done, I was pretty pleased with the results. The knotting does take a little getting used to, so allow yourself some time to play with the different techniques.

Is knotting something that you have done before or would like to try? Let me know in the comments!
