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.

One lucky winner will receive some of the bell flower beads Cynthia used in the Creamsicle necklace she made during the episode, double sided bead caps for a fun challenge, and silver and gold options. 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.

    Hi. I use fancy cone-shaped bead caps as little dresses
    and add crystals, pearls and daisy spacers to make my Christmas Angel earrings. I also use bead caps and add a bead to end my Kumihimo bracelets. And on and on. Very useful items!

    I use bead caps to add a filigree effect to simple round beads and to break up the monochrome look of too many round beads.

    I have not used many bead caps yet and up to now just used them to finish dangles…like bells hanging down. But now I’ve seen so many cool ideas for them as spacers and such that I’m trying to use them more often… really getting to love them!

    I love using intricate bead caps and spacer beads to add sparkle and a romantic feel to strung beads. I had never thought of stacking bead caps before, though. What a fantastic idea! I’ll definitely be trying that in my next bead stringing project.

    Love to use the bigger ones to hide the joining of several strands of stringing material.

    I make rosary beads and use bead caps to give the the larger “Our Father” bead a bit more distinction from the other beads. Sometimes I will also add Swarovski crystals. Of course I also add bead caps to my regular jewelry , acting as spacers.

    Love using bead caps! They really give a finished look to drop earrings (esp. pearls), can give just the right amount of extra length needed to finish a bracelet, and add great texture to a necklace. Haven’t tried layering bead caps, but now I have to try that too!

    Bell flowers and melon beads-so much fun packed into small items. I would certainly like to try using the bead caps by making the Creamsicle necklace shown by Cynthia. Thanks for the opportunity to enter this wonderful giveaway.
