Embellished Seed Bead Earrings - Jewellery Making Tutorial

We invite you to a jewelery making tutorial in which Magda Niemczyk will show you how to make TOHO beads earrings. Beaded earrings with teardrop-shaped fringes are easy to make, and very effective and fashionable, especially in summer. Depending on what beads you use, you can get earrings in a completely different style. This is one of those projects that asks for bead experiments, so we are sure that more than one version of these earrings will be created in your workshops. To work!

Materials Required:
TOHO Round Size 11 beads in 3 colours (I chose Inside Colour Grey Gun Metal Lined (A) energetic pepper red (B) transparent frosted ruby (C))
TOHO Round Size 6 beads -  I used Silver Lined Ruby
TOHO 8 / 0  - I used Transparent Ruby
Beading Thread - One-G thread in a colour matching the beads
Earwires for earrings - with us they are English earwires
Jump Rings - size 6mm
6mm Round Wood Beads - any lightweight 6mm bead will suffice
6mm Firepolish
Your favourite Shaped Beads - I used a 7x7x3.5mm Hematite Flower
Beading Needle - John James 10/13
Scissors
Bead Mat or Tray

Remember that our tutorials are for inspiration and learning the technique, so your earrings do not have to be identical at all. In the tutorial. We focused on strong and energetic colours, but earrings in more subdued colours will also look interesting. If you choose, for example, dark beads in a metallic finish, you can get a very elegant effect. If you prefer simpler forms, you can make them without the hematite beads. The possibilities are endless, so let's bead!

Please note that the colours for the products illustrated in the image above may not match the 'Products List'.

Step 1

Thread approx. 1 meter of thread onto your needle. Pick up 6 TOHO Round 11 beads in the colour A.

Step 1

Step 2

Pass back through all 6 beads.

Step 1

Step 3

Pick up 1 x A on the needle. and pass the through 3 beads.

Step 1

Step 4

Again , pick up 6 xA.

Step 1

Step 5

Pass through the 3 beads you just came out of.

Step 1

Step 6

Pass through the 7the bead you added earlier in the order.

Step 1

Step 7

Go through the next 3 beads from 1 column and through 3 beads from the column 2 now being added.

Step 1

Step 8

Take the next 3 A.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 9

Go back to the second row, going through the next 3 beads of the first row and the 3 beads of the 2nd row.

Step 1

Step 10

Without picking up more beads, go back and pull the thread through the middle column of the 2nd row (3 beads).

Step 1

Step 11

Then I pass the thread through the third column - 3 A beads of this row.

Step 1

Step 12

Pick up beads in the following order: BABBAB

Step 1

Step 13

Pass the needle into the 3 beads from which you just came out of the 2nd row.

Step 1

Step 14

Pass the needle through the adjacent 3 beads of row 2 and the BAB beads from the row 3 now being added.

Pick up beads in the following order: B A B

Step 1

Step 15

Pass the needle through the next 3 beads in row 2 (they will always be the next ones in the row previously made).

Step 1

Step 16

Again pass the needle through the next 3 beads in row 2 (it will always be the next, third, three in the previous row) and through the BAB column that is just being added in row 3.

Pick up a further set of BAB beads

Step 1

Step 17

Pass the needle through the next 3 beads in row 2 (it will always be the next, third, three in the previously made row)

Step 1

Step 18

Pass the needle and thread through the column adjacent to the column of the 2nd row, from which my thread now comes out, and insert the needle into the BAB beads (3rd column counting from the last column added in this row).

Step 1

Step 19

Pass the needle with the thread through the column adjacent to the one from which the thread comes out

Step 1

Step 20

Pass the needle and thread through the column adjacent to the one from which the thread comes out, so that the thread comes out at the top.

Step 1

Step 21

Pick up Toho Round 11 beads on the needle: turn BBAAAB and move them on the thread.

Step 1

Step 22

Pass through the 3 beads from which I just came out of row 3.

Step 1

Step 23

Pass the needle through the adjacent 3 beads of row 2 (BAB) and BBA beads from the row 4 now being added.

Step 1

Step 24

Pick up BBB beads on the needle and slide them onto the thread.

Step 1

Step 25

Pass the needle with the thread through the next 3 beads of the previous row (it will always be the next column after the column to which I add the first 6 beads in the next row).

Step 1

Step 26

Pass the needle with the thread again through the next 3 beads in row 3 (it will always be the next three in the previous row) and through the BBB column in row 4 that is just being added.

Step 1

Step 27

Pick up beads on the needle: ABB, insert the needle into the next free 3 beads from the previous row and pull the needle with the thread.

Again, I go back up the next treble crochet of the 3 beads from the previous row and the 3 newly added beads.

Step 1

Step 28

Now I pick up AAB beads on the needle and insert the needle into the post of the 3 beads of the previous row (the last one) and thread the needle with the thread).

Step 1

Step 29

To sum up: I always repeat the following steps to finish each row of treble crochets. The needle with the thread goes through the column adjacent to the column of the row, from which my thread now comes out, and I stick the needle into the 3 beads of the current row (i.e. it is always the 3rd column counting from the last column added in the new row).

Step 1

Step 30

The needle with the thread is passed through the column adjacent to the one from which the thread comes out.

Step 1

Step 31

The next treble crochets and rows are made as above, using the following beads:
Row no. 5
TR 11 beads:
ABAABA
BBB
BBB
ABA
ABA
To create the next row of treble bars, always go for 3 beads as described in point 32 above.

Step 1

Step 32

Row 6:
BBABBB
BBB
BBB
ABB
BBB
BBB
ABB

Row No.7:
BBAAAA
AAB

Step 1

Step 33

After completing the 7 rows of posts, I proceed to make the pendant.

I

pick up the thread with a needle in sequence: Hematite Beads TR11: ABBBBBA;

TR8, TR6, TR8, TR11 A, TR8, TR6, bead RUBBER, TR6, TR8

TR11 AAA TR8 TR6 TR8 TR11 AAA TR8 TR 6 RUBBER TR6 TR8 TR11 AAA TR8 TR6 TR8 TR11 AAA TR8 TR6 RUBBER TR6 TR8 TR11A TR6TR8TR6 TR 11 A BBBBB And hematite

Step 1

Step 34

connect this sequence of beads to the last column of the 7th row.

Step 1

Step 35

pass the needle with the thread through the penultimate post of the same row.

Step 1

Step 36

Thread the bead sequence:
TR11 AAAAA
TR8 TR6 TR8 TR6 TR8
TR11 A TR8 TR6 RUBBER TR6 TR8
TR11 A TR8 TR6 TR8;
TR11 A TR8 TR6 RUBBER TR6 TR8 TR11 A;
TR8 TR6 TR8 TR11 A TR8 TR6
RUBBER TR6 TR8 TR11 A
TR8 TR6 TR8 TR6 TR8 TR11 AAAAA

I stick the needle into the second post behind the post from which I came out, making the first pendant. I pull the thread.

Third pendant: I use the thread to come out of the third post.

Step 1

Step 37

Thread the bead sequence:

Hematite, TR11 BBB, TR8 TR6 TR8, TR11 B, TR8 TR6 TR8, TR11 A, TR8 TR6 TR8, TR 11 A, TR8 TR 6 RUBBER

TR 6 TR8 TR 11 A TR8 TR6 TR8 TR11 A TR8 TR6 TR8 TR11 B TR8 TR6 TR8 TR 11 BBB, hematite.

I stick the needle into the second post behind the post from which I came out, making the second pendant. I pull the thread.

Step 1

Step 38

The last, fourth pendant.

I left the 4th post with the thread and thread the sequence of beads:

TR11 AAAAAA, TR8 TR6 TR8 TR11 A TR8 TR6 TR8 TR 11 A star-shaped hematite, TR 11 A I

move them all on the thread.

Step 1

Step 39

I use the needle to enter the star-shaped hematite.

Step 1

Step 40

Pull the thread through TR11A, TR8 TR6 TR8, TR11 A, TR8 TR6 TR8.

Step 1

Step 41

then I take it on the needle and shift TR 11 AAAAAA to nothing.

Step 1

Step 42

Pass the needle through the last free post in row 7 and pull the thread to the end.

Step 1

Step 43

Now I move higher - thread the thread through 6th row TR11ABB beads.

Step 1

Step 44

 I take a star-shaped hematite TR11 C and a TR 11 C on the needle. (Of course, it can also be color A or B, because the colors, the size of the beads and their arrangement are arbitrary) I put these 3 elements on the thread.

Step 1

Step 45

The needle goes through the TR11B in the middle column of the 4th row (row consists of 5 treble crochets).

Step 1

Step 2

Step 46

The rest of the thread is sewn into the posts with a needle and, to strengthen the whole work, I pass through all the hangers again. I cut the rest of the thread.

Now it's time to attach the earwires - I need 4 links, earwires (preferably anti-allergic), and tongs (I recommend :)).

Step 1

Step 47

 Do you already know how to make beaded earrings? This is what ready-made earrings look like, I will put them in a hard box to give to my Friend.
