We know you like dangly earrings. This time we will learn how to do such miracles using only beads and threads. Such juicy-looking bead currants are great for highlighting holiday outfits. They can also be used to create truly unique jewellery. So if you want to learn how to make beaded currant earrings, we invite you to learn together with Paula. 

Hi loves! Welcome to my next course. What do you like summer for the most? I mainly use seasonal fruits. We have already made bead strawberries, now we are going to make earring currants! Ready? Let's bead! Paula xx

Step 1

Cut about 50 cm of the thread and thread the needle.

Step 1

Step 2

Take a TH8 / 0 bead and 2 TH11 / 0 beads.

Step 1

Step 3

We go through the whole twice so that the needle comes out of the TH11 / 0 bead.

Step 1

Step 4

Take 2 TH11 / 0 beads. We stick into the bead adjacent to the one from which the thread comes out. We go down through the previous 2 TH11 / 0. And we come out of the newly added TH11 / 0 bead.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 5

Repeat this manoeuvre until you have a double chain with a total of 22 beads (11 rows).

Step 1

Step 2

Step 6

Now we take one TH11 / 0 bead. We go through the entire piece so that the thread comes out of the first sequence of TH11 / 0 beads added.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 7

Take 3 green TH11 / 0 beads -> 4 or 6mm bead -> black TH11 / 0 bead and pass with the same thread through the added beads.

Step 1

Step 8

First currant added.

Step 1

Step 9

We pass one bead down along our chain and again take 3 (or 4) green TH11 / 0 beads -> 4 or 6mm bead -> black TH11 / 0 bead. And again we pass the thread itself through the added beads.

Step 1

Step 10

Repeat the manoeuvre until you reach a single TH11 / 0 bead.

Step 1

Step 11

We go through this single bead, take the same sequence of beads and go through the single bead on the other side.

Step 1

Step 12

Now we repeat the addition of the clusters - this time going up.

Step 1

Step 13

When we have made all the twigs, we secure and hide the threads.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 14

We mount the jump ring on the TH8 / 0 bead, and the earwire on the jump ring. 

Step 1

Step 15

And the first earring is ready

Step 1

Step 16

Quickly take the second one, put it on your ears, take photos and show it on our group!

Step 1

Step 17

Do you know that from such clusters we can make not only earrings? I made bunches as elements of a necklace. To this I added other fruits, flowers and dragonflies (you can find the dragonfly tutorial HERE). And this is how a beautiful, holiday necklace was created - maybe it will serve as an inspiration
