June pearl bracelet


The delicate pearls on this bracelet will make a darling statement! Wearing a bracelet, especially one made with delicate pearls, can be distracting if you’re working on a computer keyboard all day. Keep your pearls protected by adding oval links on each side of the clasp — the underside of the bracelet lies flat while the fun shows on top.


Pearl passion bracelet


Revel in your passion for pearls with this classically-styled bracelet that has a sprinkling of crystals for added sparkle. A clever combination of herringbone stitch and beadweaving forms this impressive beaded band.

Pearl cluster earrings

Pearl cluster earrings


The clusters form when you string pairs of beads through the short links. Attach the chain and the earring wire first. It’s easier to pick up the earring wire, rather than the chain, as you’re attaching the pearls. Add different colored crystals to make birthstone earrings!

Simply stylish colored pearl necklace


Dress up a simple pearl necklace with a sparkling multi strand center. The pearls serve as the base while rondelles alternate with seed beads to accent the center of the necklace for attention.


Bead-capped pearl earrings


Turn plain pearls into a stunning pair of earrings with sweet beaded bead caps made of tiny seed beads and more pearls. Consider this a stash buster, since it simply requires two sizes of pearl and five different seed beads, all in small quantities.
