Christmas Jewelry Peyote Stitch Bracelet

Each one features a paper mache pendant at the center hand-painted by Russian artists for a truly treasured heirloom. You can also try our brick stitch Winter Wonderland Ornament on your tree this holiday season. These ornaments would also make excellent gifts for your friends and family.

    I have made a jingle bell Christmas jewelry set and a red and white set to look like peppermint candies with a candy-cane colored kumihimo bracelet. I have made Christmas lights earrings, and angel earrings. I absolutely love Christmas, so my favorite would be hard to pick. The gnome set looks wonderful, I have a daughter who has a gnome tree, and another daughter who has a nature-inspired tree with woodland creatures. Artbeads sure gives plenty of fun ideas for Christmas projects!

    I have made Christmas jewelry in the past. I love my angel and nutcracker earrings that I made. Swarovski crystals and Czech beads are my favorite beads for Christmas jewelry . There are so many shades of color to choose from. My daughter and I fell in love with the piece Gingerbread Lane from your video. We make a gingerbread village together each year. I have a second daughter who got me into seed beading about 9 years ago. I can’t wait to try some of your designs. Merry Christmas in July!

    I often use links when transitioning from one medium to another… for example connecting a string beaded section to leather. Love links!
