Hi Beaders, today I would like to show you a simple earring design.
I have used the same technique as my previous design called Blue Shimmer Pearl Necklace, so feel free to make matching earrings.
What you will you need:
Petrol Blue Shell Pearl Beads Round 4mm 15.5″ Strand EX3909
Toho Size 11 Round Seed Beads Crystal Inside Colour Snow Lined 10g 11TR981
Wire beading flexible Beadalon 7 strand .012 dia. “bright” 30′ W73
Jewellery Findings Kit Silver Plated Selection 10 Styles Includes Box and Wire ST184
Step 1 – Cut 2x 30cm of wire and attach both strands to a jump ring using a crimp bead and attach the jump ring to your earwire.
Step 2 – Thread on one size 11 seed bead onto each strand and then thread on one seed bead onto both strands making sure the wire goes in to the holes in opposite directions.
Step 3 – Thread on four seed beads and one 4mm pearl onto the left hand wire. Thread the end of the wire back through the four seed beads on the wire and pull the wire tight. Now thread four seed beads onto the right hand wire, thread the wire up through the 4mm pearl and back through the four seed beads.
Step 4 – Thread one seed bead onto both strands and repeat step 3 four times. Then add seven seed beads onto the left hand wire and thread on a 6mm pearl bead and repeat the same process as step 3.
Step 5 – Thread on one seed bead onto both strands making sure the wire go in to the hole in opposite directions and tie a knot in the cord to finish off the earring.
