This DIY Beaded Twig Bracelet is so easy to make. All you need are seed beads, linen cord and a clasp.
The clasp used is from one of my favorite jewelry supply stores for an ever rotating stock of unique finds: Ornamentea. I’ve done posts in the past about their huge selection of miniature bottles, quirky findings, etc… The twig toggle clasp below is priced at $2.50 here.
The locket or “wish box pendant” is what makes this necklace special. Allison has linked to her supplier and I was surprised at how many different “wish box pendants” they had (and how reasonable the cost). Also, Quiet Lion has some of the most beautiful and imaginative photographs of jewelry – so if you are interested in that, I’d check out her site.
truebluemeandyou: Jewelry Supplies. I’m reblogging this because of questions about where to get unique charms. Not all of these are available because of rotating stock. I really like Ornamentea for unique vintage one of a kind lots.
Where to buy unique DIY jewelry supplies. I’ve gotten two messages asking where I buy jewelry supplies. I buy a lot at Michaels (because it’s local), ebay and etsy. I love Rio Grand for high end jewelry supplies (like sterling silver ball chain). Ornamentea and Objects and Elements both have rotating stocks of unique supplies.
