Bead Table Wednesday - Silk & Wire Beads

Today on Bead Table Wednesday I shared how to whip up silk and wire beads to use in your jewelry creation.

I also showed how to put together this pendant featuring a Firefly Studio charm and a Humblebeads lentil bead. A Vintaj hammered ring and jump rings pulls the look together. The last part of the video shows how to create adjustable knots on leather cord.

I would love to learn this technique. Is there another place to watch?

I love the way you covered the wires with jump rings. That is a great design tip that I am planning to use. Thank you!
