A few good designs for beaded jewelry include patterns made with multiple strings, and those that consist of beads and other materials, such as leather or fabric. Beaded jewelry can be made by following themes or by experimenting with different bead sizes and colors. Another way to form an original design is to incorporate new techniques into the jewelry.
Seasonal or festive themes provide good ideas for beaded jewelry. Jewelry themed around Christmas looks good in the signature colors of red, green and white. Bead jewelry themed around spring can use beads in sparkling designs or in pastel colors. Jewelry for children can incorporate bright vibrant colors in unusual combinations, or it can feature signature colors, such as different shades of pink for girls and blue, turquoise and other similar shades for boys.
Beaded jewelry design ideas can be inspired by nature. An unusual color palette, such as bright blue and purple in an orange setting, can be the result of spotting an exotic bird or flower. Fire, rain showers, snow, green meadows or even the ocean can inspire creative ideas in beaded jewelry. Techniques such as the Peyote stitch, right angle weave, leather work or unusual stringing methods can be springboards for beautiful new designs in beaded jewelry.
