Thread Jewelry Ideas

Tuesday, April 8, 2014

DMC Embroidery Threads are not just for stitching – they can also be used to create other fabulous crafts and wearables! This week I’m featuring some of the inspiring thread jewelry ideas from around the web.

Gina Michelle has combined 4 skeins of coordinating floss with chains and beads to make this pretty necklace, perfect for coordinating with your Spring wardrobe. The complete tutorial is available on her site.

Check out the gorgeous necklace Tassel Wisp necklace from Anthropologie.  I love this wispy necklace with thread tassels.

The color is fresh and fun, but by making something myself, I can change the design to any color. I’m inspired to make my own version in pink!

We’ve even got a tassel necklace here if you’d like to make one using our existing pattern. Ours is made from DMC Light Effects metallic floss. Links to the PDF instruction sheet are featured on the page.

The 2014 Geometric Jewelry Trends article features fabulous geometric shapes wrapped with embroidery floss. I love the random colors chosen – they go together beautifully.

You can wrap nearly anything with thread to create a similar design. KAYEganda created the pieces using recycled cardboard holders from game pieces, but I’m thinking of looking for several types of belt buckles to create a similar version.

Prefer bracelets? No problem! Michelle Sexton has featured a step-by-step tutorial for making this color-blocked bracelet with bling on her So Here’s My Life blog site.

She’s used a clever wrapping technique to transform an old cuff bracelet into a wearable piece of art.

Need more bling? Make this elegant braided rhinestone necklace set from embroidery floss and a strand of rhinestones from the craft store, or from a thrift store necklace.

The tutorial from Erica on the Honestly WTF site will show you how to make these beauties from start to finish.

They’re perfect for a dressed up night on the town, or to pair with jeans and a crisp white blouse for a casual day of shopping and hanging out with friends.

Such fabulous ideas – I love them all!
