Beads by L'hox - quality hand crafted Jewelry

Welcome to Beads by L'hox.

So it all started with Pinterest. If you haven't been there, you will love that website. I love creating and seem to have had in the past, a sort of A.D.D. of hobbies. I would try one craft for a few days, maybe a week and then find something new that interested me.

Since leaving less of a carbon footprint on this earth for my grandchildren (that I hope to have someday) and the future generations was very important to me. I started looking at things you could make out of magazines. You see I had received a whole bunch of free magazines subscriptions and they were really stacking up. But I couldn't bring myself to just throw them away.

The magazine crafts led to this lens: Top Ten Crafts made from Magazine Pages. But once I made my first paper magazine beads, and saw the beautiful designs and colors that each bead has...how unique each one was, I had to make something out of them.

Ten necklaces, two pair of earrings and two bracelets later...combined with the inspiration of the beautiful quality glass, crystal and semi precious stone beads and a ton of jewelry making supplies that I have purchased I knew I had to open a Etsy Shop.

Each and every piece I have created I love and would love to wear. This inspired me to want to share them with others.

I hope you enjoy the designer jewelry created by "Beads by L'hox".

      I would suggest a three stnard clasp. Cut the piece from the loom,leaving plenty of thread with which to work, separate the threads into three sections (3-4-3) tie a knot in each section as close to your beads as possible and run each section through a crimp bead and a ring on your clasp then back through the crimp. Having done that run each individual thread back through the beads your work securing with a few half hitch knots and trimming the ends. Crimp the crimp beads and secure your original knot with a bit of clear nail polish or glue. Voila, your beautiful new bracelet is ready to wear!You may also use a clam bead cover before you tie the initial knot. If you are unfamiliar with these, it is a hinged bead through which you run your thread then tie the knot. Using this you would skip the crimp, I find a seed bead helpful to secure the knots, then run the threads back through your bead cover and finish as above gluing before closing the cover, then use the hook attached to the bead cover to attach to your clasp. The only problem with this method is that hook on the bead, as it is not a closed loop if there's a great deal of weight to your piece or you catch it on something it can detach itself. (you may still use a crimp if you like, for extra security, just thread it on before the bead cover and follow through as above crimping upon completion!)
