What do you do when you’ve got a bunch of beads, jewellery findings and a major creative urge?
Here’s an idea of how to transform your beads into charms that can be used in a multitude of ways – fix them along a chain to make a necklace, turn them into a cluster to hang from earring hooks or to use as a central feature on a bracelet. Don’t stop at jewellery, how about a bag charm or keyring?
Follow our YouTube video that shows you exactly how to transform your beads, and how to finish them for a professional look. In our example, we’ve used the following items from our Bead Shop that come to just under £12 in total:
And for just under £12 we made a trendy charm necklace a charm cluster bracelet and charm cluster earrings. Less than half of the beads, wire, chain and jump rings were used (we used up all the earring wires and clasps) so £11.90 goes a long way.
This is also a great way to upcycle your beads.
All of the above products are included in this bundle and are as we’ve used them on the YouTube video, or you can browse the shop and choose the elements you’d like individually.
