Jewelry Adjustment: How To Shorten A Necklace & Add Dangles
This week on Free Spirit Beading, Kristen showed us how to make adjustments on a necklace she made. One great thing about stringing your own beaded jewelry is that you can always make changes to a design that just is not fitting quite the way you envisioned. Kristen loves to test drive her latest jewelry and she felt this necklace could be improved. She ended up making the necklace shorter and adding dangles. It looks amazing!

Live Beading Party With Cassandra Spicer Of Beads To Live By - Wire Wrapped Beaded Bracelet
Cassandra Spicer, from Beads to Live By, joined Sara for another fun beading party. Cassandra had an amazing beaded bracelet design she wanted to share with us. Cassandra strung her bracelet on medium diameter Soft Flex Beading Wire. She then wire wrapped the bracelet with Soft Flex Craft Wire. The bold wire work gives the bracelet a stunning texture and look. This is a perfect playful piece of jewelry for spring!
This is a great project for Craft Wire beginners. The wire wrapping is 'messy wrapped' to give it an organic look. Wire working pliers are optional, but would be helpful when finishing and concealing the tips of the Craft Wire. But fingers are perfectly fine tools for designing the wrapped segment of your bracelet. And since this is a messy wrap - every single bracelet you make will be one-of-a-kind!
