So, as the big day approaches, have you covered all the bases? You’ve probably remembered the cards, gifts and food. But have you thought about your beaded Christmas jewellery?
If you said ‘no’ to that, then I’m here to help…
I just realised I needed a new beaded Christmas jewellery set to wear this year. So, I’m sure I’m not the only one. Or, if you don’t need any for yourself, how about a quick gift for someone else?
So, with that in mind, let me share some of my favourite beaded Christmas jewellery projects…
Quick Beaded Christmas Jewellery Projects
These little gems are projects that you can run up in an afternoon.
My little Christmas stockings are super-cute. They are made with Peyote stitch and take just over an hour to make. So, yes, you can manage the set of earrings and a matching pendant before the big day!
Or, how about a cute pair of Christmas tree earrings?
This is another project that you can complete in an afternoon. You are going to be combining basic netting with a little Peyote stitch. I like small earrings, so I used size 15 seed beads for mine. But the design works just as well with larger beads. And again, you can make a single Christmas tree for a matching pendant.
If you’re happy working with the shaped seed beads, then why not give this earring design a try? Use festive colouring to put your own spin on this earring with its ‘Snowflake’ motif…
You can also get creative and use patterns intended for another purpose. So, for example, I designed the scatter stars to scatter on my Christmas table. But they would also make great earrings. Or link them together for a necklace or bracelet.
Similarly, you could use the robin or Advent candle for beaded Christmas jewellery, instead of on gift tags.
Beaded Christmas Jewellery sets
If you have a little more time to invest in your beaded Christmas jewellery, these projects are also worth considering…
How about a complete set of jewellery made from holly wreaths? Yes, the necklace, bracelet and earrings look great worn together. They are also simple to make, for any level of experience.
Or, if you want a little more of a challenge, try out a snow-inspired set.
Last, but not least, how about a set of gifts for your wrist?
Yes, I am being serious. This bracelet is fun to make and comfortable to wear. You can try it in festive colouring, or any other colouring for a party at any time of the year.
I hope that gives you a little inspiration for the party season.
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!
