Amazing Grace DIY Jewelry Set
"Start with colorful pearls, some bead caps, ball head pins and earring wires. Use the caps near your centre, then place the small crystals between the larger pearls. When it is time to make the earrings - place one on the ball head pin, place 4- 6 more on top of the single one. Add another single on top and completely close off earring. This would work with large and small beads. Very quick and easy."

Bead Project TypeNecklace, Earrings
- bead caps
- ball headed head pins
- memory wire
- 8 mm sized beads/crystal
- 4mm crystals
Place bead caps for approx 10 8mm beads
Thread the pearls with crystals in between until the start of your centre area.
At the very centre make a pearl flower by: 1 pearl on a ball head pin, then add 4-6 beads on to the same head pin, put a single pearl on the same post. trim the post, curl it and place in centre space of necklace. Then finish closing the centre bead.
The flowers for the earrings are made the same way only once closed they go on earrings, I usually use silver.
The wire bracelet is simply alternating the beads. There are no bead caps here. just the pearl and crystal and keep going in this format
