Celebrate the USA with Red, White & Blue Jewelry!

It's a celebration of red, white, and blue here in America as we celebrate the 4th of July this weekend. Whether you are going away, or staying close to home, Beadalon has you covered with fun designs in red, white and blue. Of course, you could chose any of the projects from the Beadalon Learning Center to make in a patriotic color palette, or use these as your inspiration!  A daisy chain necklace is always in style. Try using Supplemax , WildFire or Nymo to make yours. The Ginkgo Beads in this adjustable bracelet are actually strung on Beadalon Bead Stringing Wire which makes it super strong with a crimped on clasp. The last rows are added with WildFire ! I just love the simplicity of a strung design. Bicone beads, pearls, rondelle spacers and more work up so quickly in these necklaces strung on Beadalon Bead Stringing Wire . Whatever you are making, and whatever you are doing, I hope you have a safe, happy and healthy 4th of July! As always, be sure to post your creations

When we introduced the original three colors (frost, black and green), it was no surprise that they were a huge hit in the beading community. Blue, Red, and Grey followed a few years later, and we are so excited to debut two NEW COLORS - PINK and BEIGE ! Both are available in .006 (10lb break strength) and .008 (12lb break strength) and in 20 yd, 50 yd, 125 yd and 300 yd lengths. The pink is the perfect color to compliment any pink or cool tone neutrals, and the beige is the perfect material for

Have you checked out the Beadalon Tik Tok yet?

  Have you spent hours in the rabbit hole that is Tik Tok, yet? We've been having so much fun adding videos to the  Beadalon Tik Tok , and if you haven't already, I definitely recommend checking it out! It's a great way for us to quickly showcase some of our favorite techniques, and hopefully give some beading inspiration, too.  Some of our favorite techniques that are popping up include wire wrapping like in this Rainbow Wire Wrapped Bracelet by Sara Lovecraft. The Stepped Bail Making Pliers  are the perfect tool for making all kinds of wire shapes. Wire Wrapped Rings are popping up all over Tic Tok, and this flower ring is a great beginner project to start with. Another great beginner project is wrapped loop earrings - which are made using the same technique as this  Twisted Wire Bracelet . The  Bead Spinner Family  is one of our favorites to demonstrate in a Tic Tok (we have a great YouTube Video on the Spinners , too!). Watching those little beads climb up the curved
