Hoops are a really popular piece of jewelry. The earrings can be decorated with jewelry wire and pearls - or with pendants made on pearl rods / jewelry wire or pendants with a loop in them. The possibilities are endless with these earrings.
The technique "Eye and windings" can be recommended for pendants that must be hung on the creole. Jewelry thread should preferably be 0.5 or thinner when you need to thread the beads directly onto the frame. You can also choose a slightly thicker thread, just be aware that the thread must be able to get through the bead holes and that the thread must be soft. (gauge)
Carabiner lock / Spring lock:
The most common locks we include in our jewelry boxes are either carabiner locks or spring locks. In both locks there is a small loop, which must be mounted in a chain via an eyelet.

When choosing an S-lock, it is a good idea to only open one side of the S-lock so that an eye can come down over an "S". If both are open, the necklace risks opening itself and falling off.
Ball chain lock:
It is important that you measure your ball chain length long enough for you to take it over your head, as the ball chain lock is not designed to open and close more than once. And that's when you install the lock from the start. When you need to install the chain in the lock, you open the ball chain lock by taking your pliers and expanding the lock itself slightly at both ends. When the ends of the ball chain are clicked into each end of the lock, you can "squeeze" the lock firmly around the balls - easily and quietly, so you don't scratch the lock too much.
We are satisfied with our nylon cord, which we use in almost all of our boxes. The thickness of the string is 0.8 mm, and can therefore pass through almost all beads with a hole size of 0.9 m and up. Except for freshwater pearls and other similar pearls with very small holes. Glass beads, Greenlandic pearls, real semi-precious stones etc. can easily be added.
You can either make a bracelet or necklace from nylon cord with adjustable technique. You can also tie or braid nylon cord.
- See the "adjustable knot" technique here.
A pearl rod is one of the most important parts in the jewelry boxes. With it you can make pendants that hang elegantly and nicely. The technique used is called "Eye and windings". If you've run out of beading rods, you can always use jewelry wire.
You can design earrings where only your imagination sets the limits. We would recommend you to be inspired by our universe and then find the desired techniques.
An o-ring is a round ring that is either open or closed. All our o-rings are open, so they can be easily mounted on a lock / chain.
