Making Jewelry with Stones

Forever in blue jeans necklace from Jesse James Beads.comThis should be called the “forever in a jean jacket” necklace actually.  I love jean jackets (admittedly, I own four) and have been fantasizing about them as I bundle up to go out in single digit temps.  Anyone else have spring fever?Stone pendants from Jesse James Beads.comThis dynamic piece uses our new Orange Sodalite Stone statement focal pendants.  “Stone talks…” (cue Neil Diamond).  We have them in all different stones with matching stone strands.  I think you’re going to love designing with them!  For stones, I like to use the 49 strand beading wire because it’s a little tougher.Jesse James Beads sparkle toggle claspA few design notes:  I blended in a blue petite strand with the peachy stone strand so everything flowed.  To top it off, I used a sparkly toggle clasp.  This is absolutely one of my favorite JJB clasps (worth buying two because I promise you’ll use it with it’s neutral tones).  Unique stone focal beads from Jesse James BeadsLastly, I separated each Sodalite focal stone with a gold spacer bead.  Simple stringing.  Amazing end result!

Until next time!
