Tag: pillow beads


A little while ago my friend Cindy and I decided we would take very similar materials – a set of my coffee tone pillow beads, some copper or brass wire / toned findings, a few bronze-y pearls and a little turquoise – and make a piece or two of jewelry. Why?

To prove that even with very similar materials and sources you could make very different jewelry.

The Challenge

I have this one pic of what I made because I made it at my Tuesday networking group and one of the members came and bought it! Which is great but means that I will have to make another because I quite liked it. Mine uses very traditional wirework links, the pearls, clay beads, turquoise and a few twisted jump rings for interest.

You can see Cindy’s here and note that apart from the beads, they look nothing alike! And I have one more idea for the same materials again that will look completely different than my FIRST piece. So stay tuned.
