Here at The Bead Shop we love altering tired clothes and customising pieces to be unique to us so we have created a range of Studs and Spikes to help you join in on our upcycling love. Whether you prefer the pyramid or cone shapes, or want to add something special with the skulls and hearts, you will find all you need here. These studs and spikes can also be used in your jewellery making too: use the cone studs on your new kumihimo braid for an edgy 3D effect. All you need is your favourite item and a little bit of creativity!
Studs and Spikes are the perfect addition for those looking for a unique and dramatic addition to their latest designs. Available in a whole range of sizes, colours and styles, Studs and Spikes can transform any piece in seconds to create something truly wonderful. Most popularly used in fashion, on items such as jackets, shoes, bags and trousers, they are the perfect craft item for artists and makers to add embellishments with a focus on the more edgy designs.
To use with fabrics all you need to do is create a small hole where the spikes or prongs will enter your material and push through: it’s as easy as that! With the rivet style studs, fold the legs over for a secure fit and simply screw the top portion of the screw in cones to ensure that these spikes stay in place. But they don’t have to be used with just fabrics! Below are just a few ideas of some of the creations you can make with these wonderful craft items:
Here at The Bead Shop we have a whole host of different styles, shapes and colours of studs and spikes for you to choose from. We have the classic pyramid shape studs in a range of silvers, golds and antique finishes as well as some rather wonderful neon bright colours. If you prefer a more 3D effect, the Cone or Horn Screw Spikes add a great dimension to make your work really stand out. We also have a range of shaped studs that are ideal to create a feature as part of a larger design or displayed alone for maximum impact. We love using a single Skull Stud as a focal point and clashing colours of the Heart Dome Studs for a colourful design! From big and bright to small and understated we have the full range available for you.
We have a huge range of jewellery making accessories and supplies that are perfect for creating your new designs. Take a look at our range of jewellery making findings for ear findings, cameo mounts and more to create bespoke and unique studded jewellery designs. Or why not try matching your stringing materials from our huge range of threads and cords to your favourite spike for the perfect co-ordinated spiked braid design? To help you secure your spikes and studs we have a range of jewellery making pliers, ensuring that you get the professional finish to make your pieces really stand out from the crowd.
