Vintage Lucite beads are decorative acrylic plastic beads.
These Lucite beads are most often used to create jewelry items such as bracelets, necklaces and earrings.
There are many other projects you can make with vintage plastic beads, including retro-style jewelry,
wind chimes, beaded curtains and beaded glassware.
Vintage Lucite beads are vibrant and the shapes beautiful. Flowers and leaves, in soft natural colors.
String a row of Lucite beads over clear elastic beading cord to make a bracelet or along a strand
of beading wire to make a necklace.
Beaded curtains are popular and it's simple to make beaded curtains with a vintage feel from Lucite beads.
String the beads onto beading wire to the length of your doorway or window opening.
Make loops at the end of each strand, so it will easily fit over a curtain rod.
Vintage Lucite beads are more decorative than single colors in round, oval and oblong shapes.
Flowers and two color beads are perfect to create a set of wind chimes or a mobile.

Bead stringing on memory wire is popular because it is so easy to use.
The hardest part of working with memory wire is the cutting and bending the ends.
I use 1 crimp bead at the end of the chain, than the clam shell, than another crimp bead inside the clam shell.
The wire is going in the first crimp bead, than into the clam shell, in the second crimp bead, and back through
the hole of the clam shell into the first crimp bead. If possible through several beads at the end also.
This anchors the end of the thread very well.
