A Preview


In this video tutorial, I am going to cover a lot of material about stringing beads and making necklaces and bracelets.

I will go into depth about:

  • Choosing stringing materials, and the pros and cons of each type
  • Choosing clasps, and the pros and cons of different clasps
  • All about the different jewelry findings and how you use them
  • Architectural considerations and how to build these into your pieces


On our bead stringing journey, I will teach you several different bead stringing techniques. In particular, you will learn

  • How better designers use cable wires and crimp
  • How designers use needle and thread to string beads
  • How best to make stretchy bracelets
  • How to make adjustable slip knots, coiled wire loops, and silk wraps
  • How to finish off the ends of thicker cords or ropes, so that you can attach a clsp
  • How to construct such projects as eyeglass leashes, mask chains, lariats, multi-strand pieces, and twist multi-strand pieces.
