Large hole beads bracelets and earrings

I have large hole lampwork beads. I don't understand which wire to use for making earrings as the hole is 4 mm. Could you please guide me? How do I make earrings with them, and what beadcaps do I use?

Also I want to make bracelets so what type of bracelet chain I need to use for them. I am new to these kind of beads.

What else can I make with them as I have a lot of 100 beautifull beads but not ale to figure out how to use them nicely.

How to Make Lampwork Beads into Jewelry
by: Christine

Using lampwork beads is tricky because the holes are so large.

One way to string them into bracelets is to use leather cord instead of regular beading cord and using a knot between each bead. You could use a lampwork bead as closure as well.

You can find inspiration online by doing some google searches for "lampwork bead bracelet" and "lampwork bead earrings". I'm sure you'll get some great ideas that way.

Good luck!
