In this post, we’ve highlighted some of our favorite Christmas-inspired beads and charms in case you’re feeling the need to create something Christmassy at the moment! It’s a great time of year to create, because there’s so much to be inspired by! Christmas colors, glitter and sparkle are everywhere at the moment.
Take a look at our top 5 Christmas picks from the Golden Age Beads store…
1. Galvanized Carnival Toho Treasure Beads
If you love beadwork, you may have already seen our Toho Treasures range of beads which are ideal for peyote stitch projects. You could use these beads to create a Christmas snowflake bracelet (free pattern) or try your hand at making a beadwork necklace or ring.
Our galvanized carnival 11/0 Toho Treasure beads are colored in shades of gold and silver, making them ideal for Christmas beadwork projects. We love this peyote stitch ring made up in Christmas colors by Country Chic Charms.
2. Bright Red Mountain Jade Beads
These beautiful 8mm bright red mountain jade beads could form the basis for many jewelry-making projects. They are great for stringing to make bracelets and necklaces or as earring components too. Pair them with silver tone or gold tone findings for a striking contrast.
