Therefore, we will be very happy to show you Paula's tutorial, where she will show you how to make large earrings in boho, oriental or bollywood style.

Step 1

We cut off about 60cm of thread and thread it on the needle.

Step 1

Step 2

We thread 8 beads of SD and do 2 laps with the thread itself through all the beads. To make a flower.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Now we pass through one of the beads so that the needle goes out through its upper hole.

Step 1

Step 4

Between each bead from the previous row we add an SD bead of a different color. A total of 8 pieces.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 5

Again, we pass with a needle to the upper hole of the newly added SD bead.

Step 1

Step 6

Between the SD we add 4mm beads. In total, there are 8 of them.

Step 1

Step 7

Finish on a 4mm bead and carry the needle so that it comes out of it.

Step 1

Step 8

We thread on the needle bead TH11/0 -> bead 4mm – TH8/0 -> bead 4mm -> bead TH11/0.

Step 1

Step 9

We pass through the same 4mm bead (from behind) and then we do 2 laps with the same thread through the added sequence.

Step 1

Step 10

The needle comes out from a 4mm bead. We pass the thread itself, so as to pass through the two nearest 4mm beads.

Step 1

Step 11

We take 3 beads TH11/0 and dig into the adjacent bead 4mm.

Step 1

Step 12

Again, we acquire 3 beads TH11/0 and again dig into the bead 4mm. This manoeuvre is repeated 2 more times, so as to add a total of 12 beads TH11/0.

Step 1

Step 13

We do a lap with the same thread to the first previously added 3 beads TH11/0 (we can go through all our needlework). We come out of the second bead TH11/0.

Step 1

Step 14

We take a bead TH11/0 -> 3 beads SD -> bead TH11/0 and dig into the adjacent beads TH11/0 (also in the middle).

Step 1

Step 15

In total, we make 3 of these.

Step 1

Step 16

Again, we pass the thread and needle itself through the whole piece so that it comes out of the bead TH11/0 (the first one we added in the previous lap)

Step 1

Step 17

We put on 2 beads TH11/0 and dig into the SD bead (top hole). Next, we put on an SD bead and move to the adjacent one.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 18

We put on a bead TH8/0 and move to the adjacent SD.

Step 1

Step 19

We repeat the addition of two SD beads, then the TH8/0 bead and again the SD beads. At the very end we add 2 beads TH11/0. With a needle we dig into the first bead TH11/0.

Step 1

Step 20

We repeat the addition of two SD beads, then the TH8/0 bead and again the SD beads. At the very end we add 2 beads TH11/0. With a needle we dig into the first bead TH11/0.

Step 1

Step 21

We pass the needle so that it comes out of the second bead TH11/0 added at the beginning of the previous row (marked with a smaller arrow)

Step 1

Step 2

Step 22

We acquire 3 beads TH11/0 and dig into the top hole of the SD bead.

Step 1

Step 23

Between the SD we add a 4mm bead.

Step 1

Step 24

Next, we put on 3 beads TH11/0, one SD bead and again 3 beads TH11/0.

Step 1

Step 25

Between the SD we add a DG bead.

Step 1

Step 26

And we repeat the previous steps on the principle of mirroring.

Step 1

Step 27

Our first earring is basically ready.

Step 1

Step 28

Now secure the thread in your design and cut of any excess thread. 

Step 1

Step 29

Now we create the second one.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Step 5

Step 6

Step 7

Step 8

Step 30

Ready?

Step 1

Step 31

All that remains is a matter of attaching the earwires using jump rings. We place the jump ring through the top bead TH8/0 and close. 

Step 1

Step 2

Step 32

Of course, you can do them in your favourite colors, just don't forget to show them off on our Facebook group.
