Latest bead designs for matching accessories

Nigerian women love their bead necklaces. Every design is unique and gorgeous in its own way. Most of the bead necklaces we could find even come with matching bracelets and earrings. Take a look at some of the latest beads designs for earrings, bracelets and necklaces in Nigeria.


One of the most popular trends these days features several large flowers on the necklace. Most of these designs are spiral bead necklaces that consist of three or four ropes and have one or more flowers on the side. Usually, they come with bracelets made in the same technique and matching earrings. This design works great with any colour scheme. You can wear such set of accessories to any formal event.

naval knot

You can also go for a necklace that looks like a naval knot. Like the previous accessory, this necklace is also a type of spiral bead necklace. Only instead of having several ropes in a row, it involves tying them in a loose knot. The bracelets and the earrings are usually made with the same spiral design minus the knot.


Another cool style involves seed beads stitched together to form a wide colourful ‘collar’ around your neck. These necklaces work great with wide bracelets and long earrings with matching patterns. You can also attach a single flower on the side to add a little flare to it.


A style that is somewhat similar to this involves numerous straight strands of beads connected in one necklace. These bead necklaces look absolutely stunning. The matching bracelet usually also looks like it is made out of individual strands. The earrings can either follow in the same style, or look like little bead balls. You can also replace the regular seed beads with corals for extra style points.

large beads

One of the most beautiful Nigerian beads designs, in our opinion, is the one that features large beads. Each bead looks like it was made out of smaller beads. This adds volume to an already large accessory, which makes it even more stunning. The bracelet and the earrings usually feature the beads arranged in a similar order as on the necklace.


If none of the aforementioned styles seems like a right fit for you, you can always go for something classic. For example, a stylish pearl necklace-earring-bracelet combination. Pearls will never go out of fashion. This design is also perfect for those who prefer minimalistic jewellery.

If you do not want to wear a matching set of accessories, do not be discouraged. We have an option for you as well. Bead bracelets are in trend these days. You can check out the following Nigerian beaded necklace designs for bracelets to find inspiration for your own bead making idea.


A wraparound bracelet made with differently shaped beads and a leather lace will be a great addition to your accessories. Choose two (or even more) types of beads and a strap of leather to go with them. This design will be perfect for a casual summer look.


A wide peyote-stitched bracelet will serve as a great finishing touch to your look. You can combine as many different beads as you want. However, we recommend you to try the colour scheme you see in the picture, as it would be a beautiful match to your skin.


Charm bracelets are back in fashion. If you pair your favourite charms with your prettiest large beads, you will end up with a cute and stylish bracelet. It can not only work as a colour accent on your outfit, but also as a reflection of your personality.
