What's Your Necklace Making Style?
Necklace making is such a personal expression of your style, and it's one of the reasons why I love making my own beaded jewelry. I definitely have my own sense of style when it comes to fashion, and so do you! You may not realize it, but your choices in bead types and colors are the perfect way to express you own individuality when it comes to your necklace making projects.
One of the things I love about Beadwork magazine's Designers of the Year is that each project is a distinct reflection of the artistic sensibilities of the bead artist who designed it. Which of these Designer of the Year necklace making projects best fits your necklace making style?
Now, even if you don't like the particular colors of beads used in these necklace making projects, you can change them up to suit your style! Imagine if the colorful Palm Coast necklace was made in just two sleek colors of metallic bronze and silver? Or if you made the Bedouin Amulet necklace in intense, silver-lined jewel tones, reminiscent of ancient Tibetan Buddhist paintings and weavings? There's an entire world of options for you with these necklace making projects!
In addition to the fabulous Designer of the Year projects in each issue of Beadwork magazine, you'll also find great beaded bracelet making and earring making projects that let you express yourself with style. Refine your bead-weaving skills, learn about the latest and greatest beads, beading supplies, and jewelry findings, and be inspired by the work of gifted bead artists. Subscribe to Beadwork magazine and find out how much fun it can be to develop your own personal style with handmade beaded jewelry!
