I found these leaf-shaped beads in colors reminiscent of autumn leaves at a local bead shop. Wanting to capture the idea of leaves gently falling to the ground, I decided that linking them together would give the earrings the movement I was seeking. I used a combination of three colors, but the design will work as a monochromatic color scheme as well as in an assortment of colors.
Combine jump rings and beads for playful earrings
1. Link eight jump rings (Basic Techniques, p. 10) to form a chain. Repeat for the second earring.
A
Joining beaded jump rings to linked rings is easier when the linked rings are suspended rather than flat. I slid a paper clip into the last ring and hung it on the hook of a banana holder. (An ornament hanging stand would also work.) This brought the links to eye-level on my desk, making it easier to see what I was doing.
SupplyList • 52 or more 5mm jump rings • Czech glass leaf-shaped beads
(I used 18 brown, 10 red, and 8 green)
• 2 9 x 11mm round- or dome- shaped beads
• pair of earring wires • 21⁄2 in. (6cm) 20-gauge wire • roundnose and chainnose pliers • diagonal wire cutters
2. Open 36 jump rings. Thread one leaf bead on each. Don’t close the jump rings.
B
3. Connect two beaded jump rings to the bottom ring of one chain and close these rings. Work your way toward the top, adding one leaf to each side of each ring in the chain to keep the earring balanced.
Repeat this step on the second chain. You will have four beaded rings remaining. Close these rings.
C
4. Cut the wire in half. Make a small plain loop (Basic Techniques) on one end of each piece. String a dome- shaped bead on each wire and trim the wire to 3⁄8 in. (1cm) above the bead. Make a second plain loop.
D
5. Open the wire loop on the bottom of the bead unit. Slide on a beaded jump ring, the top link of chain, and another beaded jump ring. Close the loop.
E
6. Open the ring on the earring finding and slide the top loop of the bead unit onto the finding. Finish the second earring to match the first.

When I inadvertently placed assorted green beads on a hank of light blue beads, the result seemed inspired by the sea and perfect for summertime jewelry.
I decided to make a three-strand necklace with randomly placed accent beads dominating the center strand. To work out the
design, I strung the random strand first, temporarily threading it through the clasp. Then I interspersed green beads among the aqua beads on the top and bottom strands to add a splash of color where needed. I followed the same process for the bracelet, center strand first, but the design was symmetrical
rather than random. I created the earrings by joining individually linked beads for more movement.
A
B
3. String the center strand of beads over both strands of Fireline in a random pattern.
C
4. When you’ve strung 161⁄2 in. of beads, string a bead tip on both strands and a seed bead on one strand.
D
The three strands of my necklace measure 141⁄4, 161⁄2, and 183⁄4 in. (36, 42, and 48cm), not including the clasp. The finishing components and clasp add almost 2 in. (5cm). Be sure to include a bead unit between the clasp and connectors; the toggle needs room to turn to fit inside the loop.
For my necklace, I used square beads and 6mm round crackle beads on the shortest (inner) strand, square beads and button beads on the longer (outer) strand, and an assortment of beads on the center strand.

necklace • 1. String the center strand first. Center a seed bead on a 39-in. (99cm) length of Fireline. Bring the ends together and string them through a bead tip from the hook end, so the seed bead sits inside the tip.
44 45
81
3. Determine the finished length of your necklace, add 6 in. (15cm), and cut a piece of beading wire to that length. Center the longest dangle on the wire with a 6mm bead between the top links.
C
2. Cut six 1⁄2-in. (1.3cm) pieces of chain, each with an equal number of links. To attach the dangles to the chain, make the first half of a wrapped loop (Basic Techniques, p.10) above the end bead on each head pin. Connect two sections of chain to a small dangle. Repeat with another small dangle and the center dangle. Cut a 2-in. (5cm) piece of chain for the clasp extender and connect it to the remaining small dangle. Complete the wraps on each dangle.
B
4. On each side of the center dangle, string a 4mm pearl, a flat spacer, and another 4mm pearl. String a small dangle with a 6mm bead between the top links as before.
D
5. String a 4mm pearl, two flat spacers, two 4mm pearls, three flat spacers, three 4mm pearls, disc spacer, 6mm bead, and disc spacer on each end.
E
6. String three 4mm pearls, three flat spacers, two 4mm pearls, two flat spacers, a 4mm pearl, disc spacer, 6mm bead, and disc spacer on each end.
7. Repeat steps 5 and 6 one more time. String part of the pattern in step 5 again to reach the desired length. Check the fit and add or remove beads as needed.
F
8. On one end, string a 3mm round bead, a crimp bead, a 3mm bead, and the end link of the clasp extender. Go back through the last few beads strung and crimp the crimp bead (Basic Techniques). Trim the excess wire.
G
9. To finish the other end, repeat step 8 with the clasp instead of the extender.

Silver chain lends a smart look to classic pearls
by Beth Stone
Chain is both a beautiful and functional way to accent a beaded necklace, and it’s particularly elegant when incorporated with pearls. The style and weight of chain you select influence the finished look. I like the subtlety of delicate chain, but you can choose larger, rectangular links to convey a modern look. You also can experiment with different beads, patterns, and lengths of chain. Enjoy the possibilities.

This bracelet begs the question, how’d she do that? The answer is deceptively simple: thread chain onto elastic and let it collapse onto itself. This creates an unexpectedly fun and fashionable bracelet that you’ll be able to make in less than half an hour. Experiment with different sizes and styles of chain, add charms or dangles, or intersperse different kinds of beads to vary the results. The only struggle you’ll have is whether to reveal your technique or keep it to yourself.
