In the past few weeks I’ve encountered many instances in which I have been referred to as a DIY Jewellery blogger. I don’t disagree with this as such but I always thought of myself in the more simple guise of “DIY blogger” and not wanting to pigeon hole myself into such a specific category made a conscious effort to branch out of jewellery from time to time. I often wonder why I come back to jewellery so much. At uni I studied textile design and I’ve always had aspirations of making my own clothes. I have a huge appreciation for embroidery, printing, weaving and surface design. I fawn over interior DIY’s I want to fill my small flat with, but for some reason jewellery is my go to. The funny thing is I don’t even wear that much!
Perhaps it’s the little details and embellishments. The interesting shapes, forms and effects that can be produced. Jewellery can make an outfit or change the look entirely depending on the materials and details used. But maybe most of all it’s because it’s easy! Anyone can learn to make jewellery pretty quickly and as soon as you have the basic skills they can be applied in so many different ways. My style is usually to err on the minimal side, but every now and then I love something a little more… well, decadent. Like these crystal necklaces.
Crystals or Stones | Bead Caps | Eye Pins | Necklace Chain | E-6000
1. Thread the eye pin though the bottom of the bead cap and turn a loop in the top using round nose pliers.
2. Use strong jewellery glue to adhere the bead cap to the gemstone and leave until fully dry.
3. Attach the gemstone to the chain using a jump ring.

This looks so cute and easy to do. Definately trying this before I go back to school.
By the way, I was wondering where that sweater is from? It looks great with the necklaces.
Thank you so much. I actually got this sweater from a UK store called Primark a few years ago. I’m afraid that probably doesn’t help you track one down though… sorry!
Love the necklaces <3
Lovely tutorial Aunty Fran. Those bead caps look familiar and great with this project xxx
Thanks Vina! I’m always coming back to my Birmingham Bead Shop Stash!
These necklaces are so easy to make! Ach, I’m in love.

What size bead cap did you use? They are beautiful!
This is such a good idea- love the idea of using bead caps instead of wrapping wire!!
Hi, thank you so much for this post!! I havent tried and was hoping if you could reply me and let me know the big cap is for which size.
