Donut Beads look Great!

Donut beads are great as a focal to focus attention on a necklace, they also look good used for matching earrings too. With a little imagination you can even make them into a bracelet. If you want to hide the wire running through the middle of the donut hole, don't use a wire at all - link the donut bead by using head pins. Just insert a head pin into each of the bead holes from the inner edge and then loop the ends poking out on the outer edge.

Similarly, you could also hang a briolette from a donut bead like the necklace shown left. First, thread a briolette onto a piece of rigid wire and bring the ends together like you normally would when you are making a briolette drop. Next, insert the wire ends through one of the bead holes from the outside edge into the donut hole, and then cut off the extra wire, leaving about a quarter of an inch. Finally, fold the leftover wire and create a nub so that the drop won't slip out of the donut bead. Frame beads can also be used to the same effect, and smaller donut beads can be strung together making a spectacular necklace.
