3-hole Czech Glass Ava beads and 3-hole Czech Glass Cali Beads

Short time ago we were adding 3-hole Arcos par Puca beads and 3-hole Beam beads to our stock wondering if any more of 3-hole bead shapes could be coming in the future. We didn’t have to wait long. Our newest additions are 3-hole Ava beads and 3-hole Cali beads which expanded our 3-hole glass bead category to four uniquely shaped beads.

3-hole-beads

3-hole Czech Glass AVA beads have a unique “V” shape. One hole is placed at the base of the “V” and the other two go through the two arms of the bead. Ava beads are hand-pressed glass beads. They measure 10×4 mm and are about 3 mm thick. They have large holes, which will easily accommodate multiple passes of stringing material.

 

Cali beads are marquise-shaped with three evenly spaced parallel holes placed about 2 mm apart. Their marquise, or navette shape allows for creating curvatures and tapered edges in beaded designs. You can use them in elaborated bead weaving as well as in simple stringing projects as spacers.

Czech Firepolish Beads are here to stay, buy them on sale now!

It seems that in the past year or so the entire focus of the beading industry has been on 2-hole beads and 4-hole beads. There is no question that this, relatively new, development of adding additional holes to the glass beads has revolutionized beading and hooked us even more on a hobby which we already liked, but it doesn’t mean that traditional one-hole beads are going away any time soon. As a matter of fact Eureka Crystal Beads now stocks and sells more Firepolish beads than ever before.

New Free Beading Pattern for Victory Bangle & Your Favorite Zipper Bracelet

We have recently added free beading patterns to our website. They are all available to you in a printed form.  Not surprisingly Zipper Bracelet by Anna Lindell is one of your favorites.

Zipper

Zipper Bracelet is easy to make, looks great and is very comfortable to wear. The zig-zag texture of its design adds eye-catching contrast and flair. Main beads needed to make this bracelet are Two Hole Czech Triangles, which you can find in our Czech Glass, CzechMates section. Base is made with 1.5 mm Toho Cubes. You will also need size 11 and size 15 Toho. For a full list of supplies click here.

You can make your own variations of this bracelet. In a green bracelet pictured above we have used 3 mm Toho Bugles (on top of Triangles), the gold one we have dressed up with a 3 mm Swarovski Bicone.

Both bracelets look fabulous. Personally we like the one with 3 mm Bicones better. Swarovski adds a little bit of sparkle and interest to this already exceptional design.

And here is another free bracelet pattern which takes 2-Hole Triangles. It is called Victory Bangle. This design by Nichole Starman starts with a strong foundation of Two Hole Bricks, which quickly works up to delicate yet edgy bands of Triangles. By the end you’ll have created a solid bangle with a texture and depth that is only possible with two hole czech beads.

Winter is the best season for catching up on your DIY beaded jewelry projects. As you huddle up in your home to stay warm, get inspired by the beauty of the outdoors in winter for all your beading designs.

This winter as been impressively cold in most parts of North America. Along with the cold, there have been some magnificent images of ice and snow that take the breath away, such as this lighthouse in Minnesota above. Fringe-like icicles, the glitter of ice and snow in the sunshine…these are all great ways to inspire your jewelry making for 2014!

Take a cue from the rosy warmth of winter sunrise, and use a gold, dusty rose, vintage rose and peach color palette to bring some warmth to those cold winter days.

Perennially popular crystal rhinestone chain is a great way to create that sparkling fringe effect on all kinds of jewelry such as necklaces, bracelets and earrings. To learn how to use rhinestone chain in jewelry making check out this post.

Boelyn Bracelets

Perfect project for Czech Firepolish Beads and Seed beads of various kinds!

HippieFreak Beads!

boelyn 22

I came across a download for the Boelyn Bracelet, a project by Mandy Duffy from Bead and Button magazine. For some reason the “link” feature is not working for me today on WordPress, so I will say if you google “Boelyn Bracelet”, the second thing that comes up is the PDF download for this project.

boelyn 21

The bracelet came out so nice, and is so sturdy feeling, that I am going nuts making these! I have 6 made so far, which has wiped out my stash of fire polished 6mm rounds. As soon as I get some more….back to the Boelyn bracelets! I saw some of these on Etsy for forty bucks!

boelyn 20

Anyway it is not a difficult project – the most tedious part is the final embellishment, but even that is easy! This project uses about 22 6mm round beads, about double that of 4mm rounds, 20 or so fire…
