Garnet and Gold Crystal Jewellery Set

Hi all

It’s my Mother’s birthday today and I have made her a co-ordinating jewellery set comprising of a bracelet, necklace and earrings.


Here’s the complete set.


I have used 8mm, 6mm and 4mm Garnet Crystal Rounds along with AB gold and garnet size 11 seed beads.


The patterns I have used but altered slightly were from Linda’s Beading Designs. These were:

Jasmine Bracelet


Roman Necklace


Here’s a close up of the necklace pendant



The Bracelet I am really happy with. Here it is


The detail on this bracelet looks very classy. It looks very expensive in the flesh.


Here it is a little closer



And the earrings



The supplies for these items have come from my favourite shop Rosarama Beadcraft.


I have used fireline 8lb in crystal as my stringing material. I love fireline as it is a strong thread however it’s not too thick for when having to weave through the beads multiple times.


Well that’s it for now.


As usual thanks for popping by.
