I recently learned a new technique for creating beads, applying patterns, and creating bezels so I can combine them into jewelry pieces. Here are some images of the beads I have created so far:
The first two images are of silver and blue beads I created and added a pattern to. I used blue and purple seed beads to create the bezels. The third picture displays black beads without patterns, but with colored bezels. Now, I'm playing with different color combinations and bead shapes (such as flower petals and tear drops). Check back with the blog to see how I incorporate these custom-made beads with different components to make some funky jewelry!
