Make a Beaded Necklace with the Fall/Winter Pantone Czech Glass Mix
This week on Free Spirit Beading with Kristen Fagan, we used the 2021 Fall/Winter Pantone Quad of Soft Flex beading wire combined with the matching Czech Glass bead mix and TierraCast jewelry making components to string a simple and elegant beaded necklace design.
Doesn't this Bird in a Tree Charm by TierraCast add so much to this design? The design is double sided and repeated front and back, so it looks great from any angle. Since 1978, TierraCast has been making high-quality, lead-free cast beads, findings and components in Santa Rosa, California, USA.
During this tutorial, I shared how to attached the charms and the strands to the toggle with a crimped "Soft Flex jump ring"! It's a great technique to have in your back pocket when you don't have a jump ring on hand or you want to make the ring is extra secure and without a seam to the open up. A fun new tip that many viewers enjoyed!
