All the Techniques to Make Most Beaded Jewelry in one Video!

Hi friends! I am so excited to share this video with you today! I compiled the most used techniques that you will need to make almost any beaded (strung) jewelry project in today’s video! I wanted it to be like a class that you can return to time and time again. That’s why I also included time stamped links to each technique in this blog post. You will be able to jump to the technique you need to know. I hope it is helpful to you!

I know this is a long video but I didn’t want to sacrifice techniques just to fit it into a short YouTube friendly video length. I do have a favor to ask though, if you like long, in-depth videos such as this please watch, like and share it. That way YouTube will see that content like this has value. Thanks so much! And now on to the video!

*Please note this video is a beginner introduction to jewelry making and does not cover bead stitching. If it did we’d be here all day LOL!

For your convenience I have time-stamped the techniques in this video for easy future reference. I hope you find this helpful and if you have any questions let me know in the comments!

  1. Awesome tutorial for beginners! I’m just getting into making charms for Travelers’ Notebooks so this is perfect! I have lots of questions for you:
    What size chain were you using and how do you determine the size-is it by diameter of the links? Can you give a discussion of split rings vs. jumps rings and when you’d want to use one over the other? When should you use different size jump rings or is one size fits all? And I would love to see a video on ideas for composing jewelry pieces and a variety of charms. Thank you so much for this!

  3. Hi Lindsay,

    Thank you for this email with the link the to video tutorial. I have already watched this on You Tube and thoroughly enjoyed it and thought it definitely would be one I would return to if I started beading.

    I hope you have a very merry Christmas with your family and friends.
