Artbeads Cafe Giveaway – Bead Caps for Jewelry-Making

Have you worked with bead caps in your jewelry designs? These caps are perfect for the beader who’s ready to add a little more to their beaded patterns. Using bead caps with beads helps to add complexity to patterns, bring texture, or transition to other types of beads in the pattern. These findings are full of style and we love using them in our jewelry designs. In our latest Artbeads Cafe episode, Cynthia and Cheri are sharing bead cap inspiration and even make some new bead cap designs. Watch the episode and then keep reading to find out how you could win some fun items featured in the episode. 

Our designers just can’t stop adding these findings to their designs. They even have fun layering them on top of each other, experimenting with bead caps and different bead sizes, and using curved beads as bead caps.

Did you see all of the jewelry Cheri and Cynthia made during the episode? Cynthia ended up making a beautiful Creamsicle necklace with layered caps, as well as a bracelet featuring the findings used with flower-shaped beads. Cheri got creative with bead caps and drop beads, using a different cap on each end of the unique bead shape in her Pharaoh’s Palace set. She also used the findings as a beautiful transition from bold Czech glass focal beads to more delicate Swarovski pearls in her Autumn Sky necklace. We love these little helpers so much, we’re giving away some of our favorites from the episode.

You’ll even find some Czech glass melon beads and drop beads to play with. To enter for your chance to win these items, just follow the prompts below. Make sure to let us know how you use bead caps in the comments below.

    I have actually (and don’t think me crazy) gently smashed bead caps and used them as accents on my jewelry. It’s amazing what some of those bead caps look like when they’ve been flattened! Give it a try!!

    I love the look of bead caps on round beads. I’ve used them in stitch markers (for knitting/crochet)

    I usually use bead caps when I want to accent a certain bead so that it stands out from the rest.

    I like using bead caps upside down to make them look like small cups/bowls for flower beads. I also like to use them to space beads and give them distinction in the design.

    I haven’t used bead caps yet but I have seen some amazing pieces that inspire me to make stuff with them. I’m thinking maybe some flower fringe or something simple as a focal point on a bracelet.

    I love using bead caps to “dress up” and seperate bead groupings in my pieces. I’ve never used the ones that look like two glued together but I like the way they look!
