The number one thing I used to get asked almost weekly when I had my jewelry shop on Etsy was: “How did you make those beaded clusters in your jewelry?”
At the time, I used to politely decline to answer or artfully dodge the question because those clusters were my signature thing, and part of my style. But now that I’ve closed the jewelry shop, I don’t need to hold on so tightly anymore. And since this month’s theme is all about sharing information, this is the biggest thing of mine I can think of to share, so here you go. Enjoy!
One extra note that I forgot to mention on the graphic – I liked 26ga headpins for rondelles because some just wouldn’t take 24ga. Rather than have a ton of each size headpin on hand (since I made my own), I went with the smaller size. If the rondelles you’re working with will fit 24ga, and you’d prefer that size, go for it.
Please, please – if you’re going to share the graphic above, link back to this specific post, not just my blog. You have my gratitude for it.
