Resin Bead Statement Necklace and Bracelet

I'm excited to continue as a member of the Blue Moon Beads design team in 2014. Even before I became part of the DT last year, I loved their products because the are affordable, easy to work with, and you can't beat the variety. 

I fell in love with these flat back resin beads. They look like sparkling crystals but are very light weight. I used a combination of the resin beads, stone beads and silver chain to make the necklace and bracelet and got focused on what I was doing and neglected to take step by step photos. 

Basically string a stone bead a resin bead and another stone bead on wire and made wrapped loops on either end. After making a series of these, I joined them together with jump rings, and then joined the focal piece to chain on either end. 

I used lengths of different chain to complete the necklace, adding chain on the top and bottom of the resin focal piece. 

I used leftover beads and chain to make a coordinating bracelet. Wire wrapped the big beads , linked with jump rings and then strung stone beads on head pins and attached those to the joining links. 

I'm excited to see that bold jewelry is still the trend and that Blue Moon is right on top of it. Blue Moon Beads are available at JoAnns and other craft stores. 

Disclosure: As a member of the Blue Moon Beads design team, I was provided with supplies used in this project. All designs and opinions are my own.

WOW! The necklace designs displayed above are quite unique and stylish. Being a jewelry lover, I love statement necklaces and I must say these fashion establishments add a glance to your personality. These statement necklaces can be a great gift to give to someone you love. As, my mother’s birthday is in next month, so I have purchased a beautiful statement necklace from I hope she will love it. The necklace is somewhat similar to the one displayed above, but the only difference is that the stones are in small size.
