4 Ways To Make Jewellery Using Seashell Beads

Shells are huge in the fashion world right now and we've been absolutely loving using them in our handmade jewellery designs. We've created 4 jewellery kits, using our popular shell & gemstone bead pack filled with a stunning random selection of seashells, mother of pearl and paua shell chip beads to experiment with.

We show you four ways you can use this bead pack to create some fun and modern designs perfect for summer using wire-wrapping techniques.

Tutorials of the techniques used in these projects include:

How to wire wrap a bead

How to create a bead chain

How to open and close a jump ring

Shell & Turquoise Necklace

Our bead packs contain lots of beautiful shells which would work great for creating statement pendants. In this design, we have combined a shell with a gorgeous turquoise rondelle bead to add a pop of colour and a little bit of sparkle! Simply wire wrap and attach the shell and bead, then add to the bail and slide on your favourite chain to complete the look.

Shell Hoop Earrings

Our sterling silver hoops are so popular and easy to use with your favourite charms or large hole beads! You can also wire wrap your chosen beads if the holes are too small like in this project. Create an earring drop with our shell beads and attach to the hoops for a really summery and beautiful design.

Shell Drop Necklace

This style is so popular right now and can be re-created with your favourite charms and beads. Simply wire wrap the shell beads and form a loop on top - as shells are delicate you want to ensure that the loop is big enough for the shell to have room to move. Attach the loop to a jump ring and attach to a chain for this effective look! Follow our step by step instructions on how to wire wrap a bead here.

Cluster Shell Necklace

We love a good cluster of gemstones, so why not create one with shells? We love this design and you can use as many shell beads are you like to customise the look - or why not add in some gemstone beads too or a charm? Wire wrap the shells individually and combine them all with a jump ring before attaching to the bail and sliding on your favourite chain.
