This week, I figured I would share some of my favorite recent bead and jewelry related purchases. Who knows, maybe these are perfect gifts for someone on your list, or perfect for you to add to your holiday wish list.
First up are some favorites to help bead organized. Finding materials is a huge challenge for me since I love to buy supplies and tools. I've recently stumbled upon these hanging jewelry organizers that are perfect for storing tubes of beads, spools of thread, findings and other supplies.

These Christmas tree ornaments are super easy to whip up and even though I show you how to make ornaments here, they are make great pendants or earrings if you use smaller cord and beads. I like to use these tree ornaments as gift toppers. The best part, if you make macrame plant hangers, it's the perfect way to use up those smaller scraps of cord that are left over.
You only need to know one knot - a macrame square knot. Let's get started!

This project replicates the business card symbols from the Squid Game series on Netflix in beaded peyote strip that is suitable as a ring, bracelet or anything else you might like to make.
I tried it several different ways and have included the bead diagram and word diagram below - as well as some instructions and my variations.

OK - I get it. Not everyone is into macramé plant hanger instructions right now. But I am though - and my backyard is beginning to look awesome!! More news is that I'm doing the front of the house next...
Today's project is for a similar design as my last macramé plant hanger project - but I added some beads and necklace charms to bling it out a little. It is also shorter than the last one.

Every once in a while, I like to take my jewelry making skills and super-size them to make other things around the home. Normally, I use macramé knots to make bracelets. But using the same square knots and half square knots and larger cord, it's super quick and easy to make macramé plant hangers and wall hangings.
Here's my first plant hanger in quite a while and how to make it.

Today I'll show you how I finished the brick stitch beaded heart charm by adding rings to connect it to a cord and made it into a simple bracelet or necklace or whatever makes you happy!

Brick stitch is a perfect beadwork stitch for beginners. This heart pattern is also perfect for beginners because, in addition to practicing the basic stitch, you can learn fundamental techniques like increasing and decreasing on the beginning and ends of rows.
