Smykker til konfirmanten

Here you find some examples of festive jewellery inspired by traditional Danish confirmations. On this occasion the girls are dressed elegantly in white.

Consequently, this little confirmation collection is kept in white and pink. Pearls combined with Delica beads and seed beads create a simple, delicate and feminine look for the big day.

You can keep your own jewellery in pure white or go with the trend and mix it with pink – as we do here.

In our earlier blog post on Confirmation jewellery you will find more DIY guides and inspiration for your own designs.

This bracelet consists of three beaded strands which are finally joined together. In our earlier blog post Mini-bracelets with Delica beads you will find a step-by-step tutorial on how to assemble a bracelet like this.

Once you are done with stringing the beads on the three pieces of wire you connect them using a 4mm jumpring on each end. Finally, you fasten the clasp and the chain extender.

You can make your own chain extender with a piece of cable chain and a coin.

Earrings with beaded bar and shell pearls

You need the following materials to make these earrings:

First, you glue the peg on the loop into the half-drilled shell pearl. If necessary, you pinch off a bit of the peg so the pearl sits comfortably in the cup.

Then you open the eye of the eyepin, hang the pearl into it and close the eye again. Afterwards, you string the desired amount of beads on the wire. With the remaining wire you make a loop to round it off. Please click here for our instructions on how to make a loop. Keep in mind that you will need left over wire for the loop while you you thread your beads.

Finally, you open the eyelet on the earstud, hang the beaded eyepin into it and close the eyelet again.

 

Hair accessory with beads and shell pearl

You need the following materials to make this hair accessory:

First, you apply a bit of jewellery glue insind the small cord end. Insert the cord and press the cord end together. Then you string the desired amount of beads.

Pull the cord through the crimp end, tie a few knots and close the crimp end. (In case the hole in the crimp end is to large so the knots can pass through, you can hide the last seed bead inside the crimp end.)

Then you take the 5mm jumpring and attach the crimp end to the hair clip. In an earlier blog post on men’s jewellery we explain how to open and close a jumpring correctly.

Next, glue the loop with peg and cup into the half-drilled shell pearl and connect it to the cord end using a 3mm jumpring.

Alternatively, you can fasten a cord end or a crimp end on either side.

 

Macramé bracelet with Delica beads

You need the following materials to assemble these bracelets:

(weißes Armband)

(rosa Armband)

We made both bracelets using the classic macramé braiding technique.

Before you start, you carefully burn both ends of the nylon cord so it melts, hardens and can be used like a needle. After that, the beads can easily be strung.

For the white bracelet we turned the eye on the charm a bit in order to make it hang the right way. The charm is braided into the bracelet.
