Beads of the Week: Silver-Lined Tanzanite Toho Seeds

The cute, little Silver-Lined Tanzanite Toho seed beads are a lovely lavender shade with a glassy finish and a silvery shine. The great thing about seed beads is that they are so versatile and can be used for so many different intricate designs and beaded patterns. The edges of these are square so they would be great for big seed bead projects like a sewn bracelet or choker!

Earing and Pin smallYou don’t have to be a seed bead expert to make something pretty to wear. So keep it simple and make some Pom Pom Hair Grips and Droplet Earrings.  These makes are also great to use up the last of your seed beads if you have just a few left over from a bigger project.

All you need is: 
Silver-Lined Tanzanite Toho seed beads 15TR39
Hair Clips CH108
Silver Plated Findings Kit ST184
Fevi Kwik Glue W331

To make the Pom Pom hair grips simply dab a layer of glue onto the hair clip plate and stick on your seed beads. Create a couple more layers of seed beads to create the dome shape. Allow the glue to fully dry for a couple on mins and you’re done!

To make the Droplet Earring string on your seed beads onto some beading wire to a length of about 2inches. Cut the wire and thread both ends through a crimp bead. Loop the wire ends through the bottom of the ear wire and back through the crimp bead. Pull the ends tight and squash the crimp bead using flat nose pliers. Cut off the wire ends and repeat to make the second earring.
