Beebeecraft Tips on How to Wear Pearl Necklaces


Pearls are the symbol of elegance and can add instant sophistication to any outfit from the casual to the formal. So how to wear pearl necklace and what to match with pearl necklace is a worthy question to explore. Here are some Beebeecraft tips on how to wear pearl necklace.


Depending on the occassion.


If you must wear formal clothing at the office, a single strand white pearl necklace is ideal. It’s ideally styled with a slim-fit jacket, buttoned shirt or crew neck blouse.


A two-stand pearl necklace is great for a dressed-down look. It adds a touch of glamor to a modern pair of sneakers, jeans, midi dress or leather jacket.


A multi-strand necklace can provide the simplest gown with the wow factor. The more understated the dress, the more you can highlight the beauty of the pearls.

How to pair them with accessories.

1, Be simple.

Pair single stranded or double stranded pearl necklace in single color clothes. For example, white pearl necklace with black outfit is perfect classic combination.

2, Pearls with pearls

If you’re looking for something a little formal, the classic combinations are pearls with pearls. So match a necklace to a pearl bracelet or a pearl stud or teardrop earring. You’ll look as beautiful as Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

3, The scattered Pearls with sweater.

You should consider the scattered pearl sweater if u want to stay modern. A pearl embellishment on a casual sweater will show your style and glamor. For this reason, it’s the best choices of trans-seasonal pieces, as it can be layered over a party outfit on a cold evening

4, Match with strapless.

Black or blue dress will be recommended to match with the pearls, which will make u stand out in a crowd. Make a statement with pearls lined along the sleeves, You’ll feel like fashion royalty from the moment you put on the dress.

5, Choose big pearls in single strand.

The pendant will be the focus of the necklace, so it’s essential you match it with an outfit’s color. If you don’t, you’ll stand out for all the wrong reasons. A single strand necklace with big pearls (9 mm to 20 mm) will be fine, and ensure that your necklace stands out glamorously.

6, Avoid matching pastels and strong colors with pearls.

You will look much older than you want if wearing pearl necklace with pastels or serious colors. And pearl’s color will be washed out if you wear that color clothes.

If you love the classic pearl strand then you can design one for yourselves or your friends, and Beebeecraft offers a variety of pearl beads for u. Hope these tips are useful for u!

Ring bands are subject to everyday wear and it is easy for the rings to be put under enough stress to cause breakage.


Take good care of your ring

Don’t Touch the Center Stone

Wondering how to take care of your diamond engagement ring? Avoid touching the center stone at all costs! When you put on or take off your ring, try grabbing the band on either side of the stone instead of grabbing the stone itself. If your stone ever looks hazy or cloudy, it’s likely something is stuck underneath it.”

Don’t Treat Your Ring with Harsh Chemicals

Remove your ring when cleaning or touching harsh chemicals, Bleach and other cleaning agents can dull the finish of a ring and actually harm porous colored gemstones like emeralds.

Don’t Put Your Ring Through Needless Wear and Tear

Sometimes the table of a cut diamond can be susceptible to wear and tear. Be sure not to knock it against other hard materials.

Do Keep Your Ring Clean

Cleaning your gems with random cleaners at home is not so good, taking your precious and sentimental engagement ring to an expert jeweler to get it properly steamed clean would be my recommendation.

Do Remove Your Ring During Hands-On Activities

Make sure you’re taking off your ring during all hand-heavy activities.

Do Keep Ring Dishes Around the House


How to Fix broken rings

Certainly some simple situations, like the gemstone falls off and can be solved by your own easily. When you intend to find a jeweler to fix your ring, here are some tips you should notice.

  1. The very first thing should do is to collect all broken parts. Collecting all the parts will make it easier to be restored.

  4. It is very importantto choose a reputable jewelry which specializes in repairing exquisite rings.

Beebeecraft instructions on how to make wire wrapped jewelry


Summer season is the best time to wear wire wrapped jewelry, isn’t it? Wire wrapped ring, wire wrapped bail, wire wrapped cage and so on. With aluminum wires, tools of pliers, some beads, stones items to be wrapped and findings, you could actually make your personalized wire wrapped jewelry with beads decorated.

Once you have your tools, wire, and item(s) to be wrapped, you need to decide exactly how you want it to look. Beebeecraft offers various jewelry making supplies for u to make wire wrapped jewelry.

In my opinion, the more glass you have, the better, so you can experiment with the colors to see what you like the best. I think that almost any blue piece will look good on a white piece, supposing the sizes are good. Also, you need to determine which color wire to use, the silver and golden wire are common.

Make the wire wrapped ring


Step 1: Position Bead on Wire

After selecting the right bead you like, thread it onto your wire. Make sure that it’s centered.

Step 2: Determine the Ring Size

Position the centered bead on the ring mandrel. In the normal case, you will want to start approximately one size larger than the size of the ring you want to end up with.

Step 3: Wrap Wire Around Mandrel

Carefully wrap your wire around 3-4 times;

Step 4: Gather the Wire Underneath the Bead

Position the wires as close to the bead as possible.

Step 5: Start Wrapping the Bead

Start wrapping the wire ends around the bead in a counter-clockwise motion; each successive wrap will go underneath the previous one.

Step 6: Start Coiling the Wire

Remove the ring from the mandrel – you should have one wire end pointing up, and the other one pointing down.

Step 7: Finish the Coils

Pull the wire end up firmly with your chain nose pliers, and then continue wrapping coils around the four wires that make the ring band.

Step 8: Finish the Other Side

Step 9 Finish Your Wire Ends

Make the wire wrapped pendant


Step 1: The Loop

Just take the wire and put up to the pencil at the more or less center, and wrap around twice. Then, just twist them once or twice so the loop holds.

Step 2: Starting Off

To start off, I usually start one wire going on the back, and one on the front. For the sake of non-confusion, let’s make the unfolded wire #1, and the one behind the glass that’s folded, #2.

Step 3: The Wrapping

What I have done next is taken #2 and just folded it across the bottom of the white glass piece.

Next, I took wire #1 and folded it diagonally down-right over the pink glass that I had just placed there, and then folded it around the back.

Then, I left #2, but I took #1 and wrapped across diagonally in the opposite direction, and then back around the back.

After that, I took wire #2 and brought it back to the loop and wrapped it around once just to hold it. So, the only thing that #2 did was go down on the back, go around the bottom tip, and back up to the top, while #1 went down across, over, up across, down across, then to the loop.

Step 4: Finishing Off

After you get both wires back to the loop and wrapped around a few times, you need to cut the wires, usually. Cut them to the length so that the ends will end up on the back of the loop.
Then, you need to mix the end(s) where you need to use the pliers. You just need to pinch the wire down, while rotating the pliers around the base of the loop.
You should now have an almost complete pendant.

There are some basic beebeecraft instructions on making wire wrapped jewelry, and you can also find the wire wrapped jewlery materials on Beebeecraft, hope they are useful for u.
