What's Inside this Free eBook

Beaded Necklace Patterns

The Bird's Nest necklace project (pg 7) is one of our most popular necklace patterns. It's a great easy project to do while sitting in front of the TV because once you've picked out and strung your beads, you just keep wrapping until you get your nest as thick as you would like it. When you've mastered the bird's nest technique, you can make so many other types of jewelry! Learn this free necklace pattern, and soon you'll be making bird's nest rings, brooches, and earrings!

The multi-strand beaded necklace project (pg 12) is perfect for loosening up your bead stash. It's one of the easiest beaded necklace patterns that gives you the most satisfying result. A multi-strand bead necklace can be a wonderful statement piece to dress up a T-shirt and jeans or wear to work with your button-down blouse. This is another one of our basic beading projects that you can use over and over again to create many different styles once you've mastered the first one. So don't hesitate; learn how to make necklaces like this tonight!

Beaded Ring Projects

The pretty beaded rosette rings (pg 31) would make a great set with the Bird's Nest Necklace. They are so simple to make and require very little jewelry making experience to complete. This is one of our free jewelry projects that is perfect for beginners.All you need to complete this cute little beaded ring project is a ring back, some fabric, and a few beads, and you can be wearing it or handing them out to your friends in no time!

Put your bead stringing skills to good use and make the adorable little beaded ring (pg 29). There is no bead weaving involved like in other beading projects. This simple free jewelry making project is the best way to quickly grow your ring collection. The little freshwater pearls really make the turquoise pop, yet the ring is simple enough to wear every day. This is one of our free jewelry projects that you can make in under an hour! There's nothing better than starting and finishing a project in less than 60 minutes.

Beaded Bracelet Patterns

The Pressed Pennies Bracelet (pg 23) is designed for those of you out there who are traveling collectors. This is one of our bracelet patterns that allows you to make pretty, jealousy-inspiring jewelry and carry all your favorite memories with you wherever you go. After seeing how easy it is to make this bracelet and keep all your precious memories together, you'll never pass up the chance to get a pressed penny again!

One of our free beaded bracelet patterns, this little beauty does not disappoint. The pretty beaded bracelet pattern (pg 25) will not only leave you will a gorgeous piece to wear around your wrist, but will also teach you the basics of working with wire if you are just starting out. Just like all of the projects included in 12 Free Jewelry Projects to Make This Evening, this pretty bracelet can be worn out every day or to dress up an outfit for a special occasion. It adds just the right touch of color without being overwhelming. You will not regret taking the time to sit down and make this beaded bracelet pattern.

Earring Patterns

Add a little sparkle to your daily routine or make these pretty earrings (pg 17) to wear out to your next party! One of our simpler free jewelry patterns, this adorable pair of earrings is another project perfect for beginners. The step-by-step instructions make it really easy to understand how to use eye pins, beads, and chain to create cute dangle earrings. Follow this earring pattern and make a fun pair of dangle earrings in all of your favorite colors!

Mica is a lightweight, flaky mineral that makes a pretty tinkling sound when brushed against anything metal. That's why this earring pattern (pg 14) is so fun to make. Using the mica creates an organic, yet somehow almost industrial look that will leave everyone asking you where you bought them. Mica can be a little difficult to work with because of its flaky composition, but it is well worth the effort when you get this gorgeous effect from your jewelry making techniques. This puts a new and interesting twist on your average bead earring pattern by using one large embellished "bead."

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I have been using nail enamel for a while on raw wooden pendants. I often start with a layer of colorful tissue paper glued on. Then i add nail polish, metallic paints, a bit of glitter, and sometimes I will texture the wet mixture with a piece of wire or other pointed tool. I get great results, but I can't wait to try using the cabachon settings filled with nail enamel. Great idea!

Oh my word you have got to check this 12 free jewerly projects to make this evening free e-book if you love to make jewelry because it is got anything from simple jewelry to multi strand to bead weaving and even metal jewelry. The tutorial are easy to understand with good pictures. They even have rings that are done with a rosette and pearl or even seed beads. I love the enchanted forest earrings too. So wether you are a beginner or novice there is something in there for everyone. Thanks.

Talk about hitting the jack pot! I love making jewelry. Most times I sort of wing it and play with my beads. But after seeing some of the really nice projects in this and seeing how easy they are, I think I will give a few a try. I love getting something this great for free.

A nice collection of patterns! You've definitely whetted my whistle ) I can see myself trying the Bird's Nest Necklace, the Metal Charm Necklace, the Stash Buster Multi Strand Bead Necklace as well as the Golden Bugle Bead Bracelet, and the Pretty Salmon Bracelet. I better get started soon! Oh no, LOL, I think I've got the jewelry making bug!!!

I'm having a problem trying to download the above pictured "eBook" called "12 Free Jewelry Projects to Make This Evening". Each time I hit the "download" button, I get directed to another screen that says this "url" is not found on this server. Why am I getting this message? There is an earring project on the front cover that I'd like to make, but how can I try to make it if I can't download the eBook? HELP!!!

Hello, Thank you for your feedback. We have now fixed the issue just click on the red "Click Here for the eBook" button and it should download automatically. - Editors of AllFreeJewelryMaking

Hi there, Thank your for your question. Unfortunately, we do not have any books or tutorials for Russian leaves beading at this time. We suggest checking out for more jewelry making books. I might also suggest that you try posting your question to our sites Facebook page. It is a great resource for helpful tips and suggestions from our Facebook friends; perhaps they can offer some guidance. Here is the link: Best of luck! -Editors of AllFreeJewelryMaking

this is awesome.thank u so much.

nancypcb3 0355185......VERY WELL SAID!

I am new to Jewelery making and I find this very helpful,instructions are easy to follow. I had a furneral to go to and didn't have earrings to match what I was wearing,and made some fast hoops with leftover beads that I had,they matched perfectly and it was so fast.

My last comment was directed to bobbejk55 1405059.

You inconsiderate, ungrateful fool. Did you PAY for a service or product? These people are not charging you a thing for these instructions and information. Maybe if you'd mature a bit (actually, a LOT) and try to communicate, someone could help you with whatever your problem is. Or maybe you'd rather sit in the corner and throw a temper tantrum.

This is awesome ! I love it. Regards from Costa Rica, Mara Salazar Ramrez

I do not have the materials as of now on hand. THANK!

I got a book but unable to find it in my device. Where does it go?

You will need to specify a folder on your computer for easy finding. I have a folder made for E-Books Jewelry and have it download to there when you click on "save it" button.

I think it went into your downloads. In Windows push the button with the flags, your menu pops up. On the grey side there is a list of things you can access from there. One is pictures, one is documents, one is music and another is downloads. Push the download area. Now you should see a list of everything you have downloaded. Sometimes the names are quite strange, go through them until you find the one you are looking for. If this isn't it, when you download, you have to give it a name, look up higher than the name you are giving it, the top bar and see what it says. That is where your downloads are going.


How fun!!

I have to say that this all looks great. My family and I will enjoy doing the bead projects.

I Think This Project is a great idea!!!

I think it is not so easy

HI ladybugb52 3787405, Unfortunately at this time all of our eBooks are downloadable PDF documents. Perhaps try downloading it and printing from a friend's computer or your local library. @margremick 5397758, printing is very easy! There should be a little printer button in the PDF document screen. Otherwise simply select file and print. Hope that helps! -Editors of AllFreeBeadedJewelry
