Details and Supply List

From Rachel: 

"I love the holidays, and I love designing for the holidays! But if you’re anything like me, you have tons of people to make gifts for. Don’t get me wrong, I love it, but after a while, the beads get so expensive! That’s why I wanted to create this series. Sea glass is inexpensive, but so easy to elevate to look elegant.

This week, we’ll be making a necklace and earrings, and next week we’ll be making a bracelet. In these designs, I’ve used mostly Czech glass as complementing beads. They’re another relatively inexpensive bead, but when paired with the sea glass, the jewelry looks like a million bucks!"

To bead along with us this week, you’ll need:

Necklace

  • 36 Heishi sea glass beads
  • 36 Czech glass spacers
  • Sea glass freeform pendant
  • 20 & 24 Gauge wire
  • Vintage necklace chain & clasp (or just any chain you like & clasp)
  • Round nose pliers, Flat nose pliers, Flush cutters
  • You may need jump rings depending on your chain

Earrings

  • 2 Sea Glass Shells (center drilled) or other Sea Glass Shape
  • 2 Headpins/Ballpins that work with your Shells
  • 6 Freshwater Pearls
  • 24 tiny beads (mine are turquoise about 2.5mm, but crystals or seed beads would work too)
  • A pair of earwires (I show how to make ones like mine, here)
  • 24 & 28 Gauge Wire
  • Round nose pliers, Flat nose pliers, Flush cutters
  • Optional: 24 ball pins or headpins for the dangles. I like to use the 28 gauge wire and just bend it into a loop for myself (which I’ll show you how to do), but you could also use headpins or ball headpins.

The class is Saturday, December 5 at 3pm PST/6pm EST via Facebook LIVE on our Facebook page. Register for the event to get an email reminder.
