Always a Brides Maid

About this design:

Making new samples for a wedding that I'm making the bridal jewelry for in August. This design can be made in almost any color combination. I'll also list this design on my website as a custom order bridal design.


Swarovski crystal (4mm)bicones, Swarovski(5mm)pearls and crystal sz10 seed beads. Finished with a SS box clasp.

    Very, VERY pretty. May I ask what size wire you use or do you use silk? This looks like it drapes perfectly. I’m sure it will be stunning on all the girls.

    Oh my goodness! How did you do that?!
    Are the strands woven together or is the stringing material alternately strung through beads of the strand next to it? (Hope that makes sense. Don’t know how else to describe it.)
    So pretty! But it looks time consuming.

    Thanks for the inspiring comments! To answer Kitty Mom, I always use Fireline (usually 4 lb. test) for my intricate pieces. It’s very fine, pliable and strong. Fireline; which is actually fishing line; comes in white and smoke for darker beads. It is now sold through beading supply sites, but I still get mine in the sporting goods dept.

    To answer Sweet Chick, this is a continual pattern, one thread, lots of beads (hope this answers your question). It took me about a week to complete, working evenings, so I imagine there’s about 8 hrs labor involved.
