Beaded Bookmark

Instructions for making a decorative Beaded Bookmark out of jewelry wire, beads and jewelry supplies using WigJig jewelry tools

Beaded Bookmark made with jewelry wire and beads.

        Jewelry Supplies Required:

Jewelry Tools Required:

  • 8 inches of 18G soft jewelry wire
  • 3 inches of 22G soft jewelry wire
  • One 2" head-pin
  • Two six mm crystal beads
  • Two 2 or 2.5 mm round gold-filled beads
  • Round Nose Pliers

  • Flush Cutter

  • Chain Nose or Bent Chain Nose Pliers (2)

  • Any WigJig jewelry tool and Spiral Maker Tool (Optional)

  • 20 minutes of free time

Jewelry Making Skills Required:

 

Begin by cutting and straightening a piece of 18 gauge soft jewelry wire 8 inches long.  Make a spiral either using the WigJig Spiral Maker tool, or as shown here.  Leave about 3-4 inches of straight jewelry wire and make a loop in the end of the wire opposite the spiral.  A wrapped loop was used in the bookmark shown at right, you could also use an eye loop.  (The technique for making a wrapped loop is shown here.)  Attach a bead dangle to the loop in the end of the wire.  In the book mark show at right, a wrapped bead link was used to connect between the bead dangle and the loop in the end of the wire. 

All of the skills involved in this project are beginners skills.  This is a good opportunity to use colored wire and to coordinate the color of the wire with the beads.
