I have been a little lax in my beading projects lately for the Artbeads Blogging for Beaders program, but I have finally come up with a few projects to share.
I really love my beaded plant hangers, and I wanted to create some more “jewelry” for my plants. I came up with an idea for a little jeweled stake when I had some extra supplies left over from a project I’ll show you next week.
You’ll need a wooden dowel rod, a screw eye, a key chain ring, needle nose pliers and your chosen embellishments. I used some beautiful glass beads and a sterling silver charm provided from Artbeads.com. Some jump rings, and wire or chain are also needed. Artbeads is a great source for all sorts of supplies like this, and they don’t necessarily have to be used for jewelry!
If you’re not a plant person, this same technique can be used to make something else fun, like a fancy bookmark. Artbeads also has a great selection of bookmarks for beading and embellishing.
You can find other great ideas in the Artbeads Learning Center. Sharing with:
